(but for real.)
We were in Toledo for Easter. Evie got her first visit from the Easter bunny … he brought yogurt melts, books & plastic eggs that wobbled.
Cuddling with her Papa.
Chris & Carley were there too 🙂
Chris taking it up a notch.
Carley, a notch higher.
aww, a nice pic of Carley & Todd. (hi Todd.)
Todd, our Christmas and Easter brother.
More Papa snuggles.
Love, looove this pic of me and Mom.

Don’t we all coordinate well? Not planned at all. Serious. I didn’t even realize Evie and I were both wearing navy with white polka dots until that morning.
So I’ll post one of these pics here, and the rest in a separate post. They’re that good.
I think Evie likes C+C.
Chris probably told a joke (note how he’s also laughing).
Back at home, that evening, posing with her bunny ears & the Easter basket grass.
Going to the park.
Always studying everything around her.
🙂 She loves all new bits of independence … crawling by herself on the playground included.
Peeking at Daddy.
Happy Easter, baby girl.

A good way to start the year … a walk in the snowy park.
We arrived at the park & bundled her up. She’s probably even less thrilled than she looks.
We spotted an awesome sledding hill … we’ll be going back there when Evie is a little older.
Icy pond, snowy bridge.
A fresh start to a new year.

More pictures from that day to come, but I just had to post this.

It’s been a few weeks! We have been busy. Even though half of these photos aren’t edited, I’m just throwing this post up there because it’s been so long & the pictures are pretty awesome by themselves.
When my parents were here about a month ago, in mid-September, we went to Wegerzyn Gardens. It’s another one of the amazing parks here in Dayton, part of Five Rivers Metroparks.
This is a really unique sculpture at the park:
It was huge – and like a maze. I could see where it would be a lot of fun for smaller kids (but bigger than Evie 🙂 ).
The best shot I got of the bumblebees. They were quicker than me.
Grandma & little Evelyn.
My beautiful sister.
Grandma & her girl.
There were too many great shots; I couldn’t choose.
They’re pretty good friends.
Evelyn with her Papa & Grandma.
I will note that Evie was at the end of her rope … she was due for a nap.
In every picture where she’s smiling, she’s only smiling because Michael is doing some crazy ridiculous jumping off to the side to make her laugh.
Grandma & Papa thought it was fun too.
(( love this one ))
Introspective moment for Evie-girl.
Center of our world.
kisses for my baby girl
and a hug for me. 🙂
me & my hot husband
all of the girls!
Evie, I think that is a bit big for you.
I think the pictures taken that day will be treasured for generations!
