Happy Easter Y'all!

Trying out my first peep! I like it....
Will's Easter Basket!
Love me some Elmo!
I stripped off his pj's because his fever made him SO hot!
My little bunny...
Scary pic of me, but this is the only one I had of him opening his plastic eggs. He would shake them then pull them open and smile! So cute.
Older picture from earlier this week in his new wellies.
Waiting to see the easter bunny.
Pat the bunny...
Checking out the goods from grandi and grandad. Thank you!!!
Not feeling so hot...

Will went to see the Easter Bunny yesterday. He was a huge fan! He was patting the Easter Bunny and pulling on his fur - he broke into a big ol' smile for the camera, so his "official" Easter Bunny pic is pretty cute. While at the mall I went to Strausburg to buy him some knee socks for his easter outfit (which is shorts and it is 32 outside A-N-Y-W-A-Y-S so over this northern weather...) and some new little white dress shoes. Which ended up being too narrow...after I bought them. Anyone know if Strausburg makes those shoes in wide? So his little outfit was ready to go this morning however it didn't make it on his body because he woke up at 5:30 with a 103 fever. We're thinking another ear infection...ugh. So we spent the day around the house. Pretty boring.

Will did love his easter basket. He had two this year, one from Grandi and Grandad and of course the one from us. His favorite thing in the basket was the easter Hotwheels. He has played with them ALL day.

In other news, Friday night we ordered pizza and were going to watch a movie. I had some jewelry to make so I needed some wax paper. Michael needed Tylenol so he was going to run to the store. He begins looking for his wallet, no where to be found. Last place he had it was at the gas station on his way home so he decides to check there. I look at our checking account and credit cards online. He had my credit card in his wallet and sure enough someone had managed to spend $1100 on my credit card in about 15 minutes - $743 at Walmart and $350 at Best Buy (I am guessing an Xbox 360 and some games...). I am REALLY mad they didn't ask for ID ESPECIALLY at Walmart! Who have you ever seen spend that much at Walmart? Electronics or gift cards I guess. So we canceled the cards etc. Anyway, we finally came to the conclusion that it must have fallen out of his pocket when he was getting in his truck at the gas station. What a hassle, huh. It must have been a girl because the only car they used was the one with my name, not Michael's.

Hangin' in their diapers.

Magnadoodling with Aunt DeeDee.

I thought this was cute with both of their hands on the glass - they were very intrigued by the fish and stingrays!

Will dug it....

DeeDee and Beau came to see us over the weekend. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving so we had a good time hanging out and catching up! Will and Beau were pretty funny together. Beau wanted to hug Will (so sweet), but Will didn't really get it and he would cry. So I am sure Beau was like, "what's wrong with this kid?" Anyway, they are going to have lots of fun together when they get older...Dee Dee and I will have our hands full for sure!

Dee Dee and I went shopping Saturday for a few hours while the babysitter had the boys. That was a nice little getaway for us! Then Sunday afternoon we went to the zoo. Will and Beau had a big time! They both fell sound asleep in the car - we didn't even get out of the parking lot before Beau was out!

Thanks for coming to see us Dee and Beau!

Pictures finally...

We got our bags! Yea! I really don't feel that I took enough pictures on our trip! Michael really is the better camera man - I just...forget. We did get a few good ones though. I just picked out a few, well 15 actually. :) We had SO much fun! Not only was being in San Francisco fun, but seeing all of our old friends from residency was SO great! Michael and I miss them so much! My good friend Lori and I used to hang out pretty much everyday so I had (and still do) have Lori withdrawls :) We did lots of shopping, site seeing, eating, walking, and enjoying our friends! Oh yeah, it was also really nice to sleep in!!!! In the meantime Will had a blast with his grandi and grandad - he has come home with a lot of new "tricks."

Top of Lombard Street (the really crooked street)...I didn't get to see the cool part. There is just too much to see and do in San Fran.
I know I look retarded in this picture, but I thought this car was really funny and I LOVE Lindt chocolate!
The girls at dinner...Rachel, me, Courtney, and Lori. We were at McCormick and Kuleto's - delicious seafood and a beautiful view of the Golden Gate!

Andy, Courtney, me, Michael, Lori, and Allan in Sausalito with a view of the city behind us.
I can't believe this is the only picture I took of the Golden Gate Bridge...
Michael and I at North Beach Restaurant - very good italian.
Lori and I spent one day shopping in a neat area of San Francisco called Cow's Hollow.
Our hotel the Westin St. Francis. It was so convienent right in Union Square.

Michael and I in the cable car...I wonder if one of those has ever lost it's brakes and flown down one of those RIDICULOUS hills! Those streets are CRAZY and so are the cab drivers. We never had a normal driver. I SERIOUSLY feared for our lives a few times.
Lori and I at Alfred's Steak House.
We had a picnic one day in this really neat park...I don't know the name of it.
So pretty! This was on the road somewhere between Sonoma and Sausalito.
Michael, Andy, Tim, Allan, and Robert at AQUA. A very nice restaurant, but the food was WAY too fancy. You know like the citibank commercial - where the girl gets a tiny chicken leg, a slice of a mushroom, and a piece of asparagus. I like "pretty" food, but this food had wayyyyy too much thought put into it, you know what I mean. My fish still had the scales - they said it makes it crispy, ugh.

Oh Delta, Delta wherefore art thy luggage...

Well we are back - had a WONDERFUL time (pictures coming soon!)! However our luggage is lost in luggage land... Needless to say I was and am VERY unhappy about this. You should have seen the baggage claim - hundreds of bags from all of the cancelled flights. We still don't know how our flights can be on time, not delayed, etc but our luggage isn't here. We figure they just shove any luggage that needs to go our way into the plane and we will get ours when we get it. Arrrrrgggggghhhh. Of course I way overpacked as usual so now all of my decent clothes along with what was purchased in San Fran, makeup, toiletries, etc. is SOMEWHERE. We also came home to record snow 20+ inches. So that was fun trying to get in the house. Snow over the knees, etc. Anyway, I know I am complaining, but the trip was GREAT! As soon as I have time I will get all the pics together for the blog!!!
