Egg Hunt

We went to Nana and Pops house in Denton this weekend for the Martino Egg Hunt. It was a blast being with cousins, and even though it was a short trip (26 hours) it was totally worth it.
We went to the county fair to see Megan auction her chickens. I have never experienced something like this before. For those of you who are not familiar with this (like I was), these kids who have been raising animals (chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, cows, etc.) for the past year auction their animals. After experiencing this, I now truly feel like I'm in Texas. Megan was so cute standing up there and ended up earning $650. It was so fun to watch and the auctioneer cracked me up!

Happy Birthday


Happy Birthday Abigail. My little baby is one year old. We had a great low key day celebrating her day together. She is such a sweet and spunky girl. We've slowly learned that she has a temper and will let you know how she feels. Still no signs of walking, but talking a lot and copying every thing Gracie does. Abigail we are so glad you came into our lives one year ago and feel so blessed to have you as ours. Happy 1st Birthday Abby!!!

Guatemala

For Ben's spring break we went to visit Nana and Pop in Guatemala and had a wonderful time!


Monday we spent all afternoon walking around Antigua and loved all of the beautiful sights including the cobblestone streets, people dressed in their authentic clothes, ruins, zip lining, market places, and lunch at Casa Santo Domingo.

Notice Grace's doll. She wanted to get one with a basket on the head like a lot of the women she'd seen.

We LOVED zip lining. Gracie did not want to put on all the gear and was screaming to leave. Luckily she was able to go with our tour guide and after the first zip, she was sold and didn't want it to end.



At the pinata store Nana told Grace she could pick out any one she wanted...her choice: the biggest one; Cinderella. After whacking it open, Ben repaired her and we saved her the rest of the trip as a little dancing partner for Gracie.
The Panaderia was right across the street from Nana and Pop's apartment. We came here multiple times and enjoyed all the delicious breads.
VIP movie theater...leather seats that reclined, and food service at your seat. This is my kind of way to watch a movie. It was super nice and comfy all for only 7 bucks a ticket.
Guatemala had a wonderful Children's Museum.
Abigail loved her first time ever swimming!
We went to Irtra on Saturday. It was a combination of zoo, park, and rides. There were peacocks walking all over the park. We ran into a group of school kids there and they were just as fascinated looking at Gracie and Abby (because of their blonde hair, blue eyes, and light skin) as they were looking at all the animals.
Thanks Nana and Pop. We had a wonderful Spring Break!
