Tonight we had a farewell picnic at Children's Choice daycare. It started with a pre-school graduation, and then the party continued!  All of the parents, kids, and other siblings ate together, laughed, and shared hugs until it was time to head home for bed. Delainey has learned so much from the wonderful caregivers at Children's Choice, and next week we move on to start a new journey at a new daycare. Delainey has made some great friends within the past nine months, and several of them will be at the new daycare!

Next Tuesday's agenda: same friends, same time, different place...

Delainey gave hugs to all of the great gals before heading home.

Jenny always had a spare hug at the end of the day!
Reggie was the greeter in the early morning to start our day off right! And... she fixed Delainey's
 hair so cute in the afternoons!
There's Angie... the Queen of Children's Choice!
We will miss the entire Hanson clan!
Michelle had a mountain of patience and took time to listen to everyone's stories, one at a time!
Amanda was always a ray of sunshine! She sent us off each night with a smile!
There they are... the jewels of Children's Choice!!

All of the good-byes can exhaust anyone... even a panda bear!

Tonight we went on an adventure that we will go on numerous times this summer.  We went out to Bryce and Josh's house to help plant the garden. This year we are co-gardening with Shaun's brother since they have a nice huge yard that is perfect for a garden spot!  I can't wait for fresh produce this summer!  Delainey was already getting down in the dirt tonight; she will be a big helper.  I wish I would have had the camera tonight as Josh and Delainey walked hand in hand to the garden. They are already best buds! Instead I have some bath time pictures which will frequently come after a night in the garden!

Coolest bath toy ever!  See the kid faucet in the background? We got it as a Christmas gift from our other cousins Kannon and Brinnley.  It is a big hit - every kid should have one!

Clean as a whistle!

First Egg Hunt

Easter Sunday was a fun day for all!  We started out getting dressed up and going to church with Grandma and Grandpa Falken. 

After church Delainey found her basket left by the Easter bunny with some new treasurers to play with. 

The Easter bunny brought her a magna-doodle and what a hit. Delainey loves it! 

After having a great morning in church and breakfast with Grandma and Grandpa, we were off to Milbank for dinner with the Spindler clan!  We snagged a few snacks and got on the road. Delainey knows right where to find her favorite snacks at Grandma and Grandpa's house!  :) 

We had a great dinner at aunt Theresa's house with lots of delicious food. After dinner came the always entertaining egg hunt! This was the first year Delainey really participated, and the older cousins really were good sports and left a few hanging around for Delainey to find. She had a blast!

We had such a wonderful day with everyone. The sun was out, the weather was beautiful, and we all spent time outside visiting and soaking in the sun! :)

We had a wonderful day! As we started off for home, our backseat was very quiet...

Delainey was counting sheep... or maybe bunnies!
