Happy Easter

I know Easter was a few days ago, but Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a wonderful and fun Easter! We were able to spend time with both my family and Dave's this Easter and it was really nice. Even though you wouldn't know it by looking at the pictures below, McKenna had a blast this Easter! She absolutely loved hunting for Easter Eggs, and she was lucky enough to participate in four Easter Egg hunts, so she definitely got her fill. It was so sweet, all Easter day McKenna wanted to see the Easter Bunny. She kept on saying "Pet Him", she wanted to pet the Easter Bunny so bad!

So I think I am officially a bad Mom because I didn't get a picture of Kenna in her Easter outfit, especially since it was a skirt I made her! I feel really bad about that now that I look at all of the other pictures I got of her on Easter and they turned out pretty bad! I know that Dave took some pictures on his phone, so I am hoping some of those turned out better!
Kenna and her best friend Hudson at the neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt (she was staring at Hudson's Dad with the funniest expression on her face!)

I could not get her to look at me!

Here she is hunting for eggs

Here are the five 2 year olds on the Garlick side of the family
(Kenna and Gracie are almost 2. Don't you love how not one of the is looking at the camera?)

Fun at the Zoo!

Yesterday Dave, McKenna, and I went to Hogle Zoo! We had such a great time because despite a little bit of rain the weather was good and it was not too crowded. To anyone out there thinking about a zoo trip, I highly recommend going in the morning. When we got there there were only a few cars in the parking lot, when we left it was completely full!
It was also a blast because yesterday was the first time that McKenna was actually old enough to appreciate the animals! She loved seeing the animals and when we would leave one animal she would say, "more animals!" She couldn't get enough!

My Two Apes seeing how they measure up!

Kenna and I with the giraffes (check out my big belly!)



McKenna on the Train
(she REALLY didn't want to get off, this was probably her favorite part of the whole day!)

This one is for Julianne!

Since my sister in law Julianne is in the hospital due to some complications with her pregnancy, she unfortunately isn't getting to spend anytime with her beautiful daughter Gracie. I got to watch Gracie a couple of days ago and while these little cuties were in the tub I decided that this was an adorable photo op that I just couldn't miss!
