Easter 2013

Some of you might recall the cute Easter bunny hat Rocco wore last year. Well, I had to put him in it again (a short lived tradition I am sure, since his head barely fit in it this year). He's such a cute little bunny!

To celebrate Easter we had lunch at Maggiano's with Scott's sister and his brother's family. Scott's mom unfortunately wasn't feeling well. Here's a quick family photo we took after lunch was over (minus me and Scott's sister-in-law):

Rocco was wearing a special Easter outfit for the occasion. Once we got home I let him go on an Easter egg hunt outside of our house, so here's some better photos of his cute outfit from that:

Have I mentioned how much I love pants with cute things on the butt? So sad that he is very soon going to be too old to wear things like that :(

Easter Egg Hunt at the Central Florida Zoo

We've never taken Rocco to the Central Florida Zoo before, so we decided it would be a great time to finally take him since they had an Easter Egg hunt event going on. While we were not overly impressed by the zoo, Rocco still enjoyed practicing his egg hunting skills. However, he equally likes putting the eggs in the basket and dumping them all out, so we're still working on it.

17 Months Old!

This month's theme is 'St. Patrick's Day' because his monthly birthday actually lands on that holiday :)

And some more photos just because I think he's cute:

Egg Drop Alachua

My sister Misty was in the hospital recovering from the birth of my new niece, so Scott, my mom, and I took Kieran and Rocco to the 'Egg Drop Alachua' event. This was Rocco's first Easter egg hunt, and I have to say, it was quite an experience! There were blow up slides and bouncy houses, a thrilling/terrifying ride on the back of a monster truck, a live band, and of course an Easter Bunny and egg hunt.

Rocco was not fond of the Easter Bunny:

They call it an 'egg drop' because the Easter bunny gets into a helicopter and drops some eggs from the sky on to the field below (which already is roped off and has tons of eggs ready to be picked up by the kiddos). The egg hunt was crazy crowded and a little overwhelming but still a fun experience for the kids.

Lorelei was born this morning at 8:38am weighing in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces and 20.75 inches long.  Here's some photos I took:

Caught red(box) handed! He was so proud of himself for sneaking the dvd from the entertainment center and was running around with it, giggling. I had to grab a photo of the little kleptomaniac. :)

Sea World (again)

We have season passes, what can I say? We like to go to Sea World whenever the weather is nice and the mood strikes us. So here's some photos from our most recent outing:

When Shamu attacks... run!
Playin da steel drums, mon.
First time down the tube slides - I think he liked it!

A rare family photo - love it when random tourists offer to take a photo for you!
