Aria turned 9, and invited several friends from church over for her party.
Juliette & Giana
Lizzy & Alia
And a gymnastic themed cake, right in line with Aria's interests.
We also had a celebration with cousins the a few days later.
Easter Egg Hunt
Lauren Yorgeson organized an Easter Egg hunt, which we hosted in our yard. Lots of families with young kids came over and dug through the grass, while trying to avoid the nefarious geese poo.
Kids 3 and under hunted in the short grass.
Kids 4 and up hunted in the longer grass.
The kids got some new Sunday clothes for Easter, and enjoyed hunting for chocolates throughout the house.
Ryan and Dani
Tara's brother Ryan and his wife Dani came out to visit Dani's grandma for her 80th birthday. Since her grandma lives in Oregon, they swung by and visited us too. We had fun hanging out with them and going for a walk along the wetlands.
Nova especially liked meeting her cousin Dax for the first time.
Waldorf Talent Show
Aria and several of her friends did a disappearing skit for the talent show at her school.

Being a mom isn't easy.
