We're back.......

 Hello blog world!  Sorry we've been abandoning you lately.  I have NOT been good at taking pictures of all that we have been doing.  It has been a busy last few weeks.  Last Friday (the 3rd) Jonathan and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary!  It has gone by so fast.  We had a great time, we went out to Ruth's Chris and actually got to enjoy a nice dinner alone.  I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have such a wonderful husband.  He not only is a wonderful husband but an awesome daddy!  Aiden and I are so blessed to have him in our lives.  
Lately all Aiden wants to do is go outside to play.  He thinks whenever we are leaving that we MUST be going to play.  It gets really challenging when he figures out that we are just going to run errands and not doing what he wants.  This is what usually happens when I tell him we're about to leave.  He grabs as many balls as he can he goes for the garage door.....
Aiden just got his first pair of boat shoes.  I love them.  
Today we took Aiden to his first Easter Egg Hunt.  The zoo was putting one on and I think all of middle Tennessee were there.  It was CRAZY!  But I think Aiden had a good time.  This is me telling Aiden where to put the eggs.  (We practiced at home yesterday so he'd know what he was doing.  And so he'd have a head start on all the other kids!!  Just kidding)  
Of course he had to investigate all the eggs before putting them in his basket.
"There's some more eggs Aiden!"
He got it!
"Excuse me, but I knew what I was doing all along!"
Aiden and momma
Of course we couldn't go to the zoo and not go see the animals.  Aiden LOVES the elephants.  
We went with some of our friends and here is Aiden, Jonathan, Caleb and Jerry.  
After the egg hunt they got some prizes and one was a lollipop.  I guess I got Aiden in mid-lick.  He was really loving that lollipop.  

Oh, and yesterday Jonathan and I took Aiden to get his passport!  We are planning on taking a trip this summer to Guatemala to go see Grammy and Daddy Ron.  They went back to Guatemala 2 weeks ago because their furlough was up.  We sure do miss them, but are so thankful that we can talk to them on the camera on our computer.   I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  I promise I won't wait this long again to post.
