I love teaching Ainsley about the meaning of Easter! She is starting to understand more about why Jesus chose to die for us and that he rose again 3 days later! 
Today at church the lesson was about us being a New in Christ and was illustrated by caterpillars turning into  butterflies! 
Ains and her grandparents!
The church Easter egg hunt was for kids under 5. Ains was not too happy with being too old ;)!
Fun at the park with Larry & Linda!
Birthday celebration!!

San Antonio!

Ryan's parents came to visit us for Easter!
We hit the road to visit San Antonio for a family trip! This poor guy powered through the trip! We found out Sunday he has bronchitis :(! He's getting a breathing treatment as I type at the urgent care tonight! 
We stopped at this cute little town on the way! We had a great lunch and did some shopping!
Ains loved getting out of the car and running around!
Larry and Linda!
One of the fun shops-dad you would have loved all of the hats!
Next stop the Alamo!
Ains loves to read!! It was fun to watch her read the signs!
Boat ride on the river walk!
We all had a great time! 
It took us a while but Ains read the newspaper on the drive home ;)!

School egg hunt!

Thursday Ainsley had an Easter egg hunt st school! I went early to help hide eggs!
Each child had 10 eggs with their name on them! They had to find their eggs!
The hunt took a good 30 minutes :)!
Ains was helping her friends hunt eggs!
Fun in the sun!
A fun afternoon with my sweet girl!

On the mend

I feel like we have been coughing for months! We finally went to the doctor this week and are on the mend. It is a combo of allergies and a horrible cold Ains picked up!
We are thankful to be feeling a bit better! Friday night we took A to see Boss Baby. We never take her to evening movies, but she was so excited about seeing it on opening day. It was cute!
Ains had an ENT apt mid week. Her one ear tube is still hanging in-we are keeping an eye on that ear. Her left ear has a clean perf. at 30% so it's holding steady.
They have flavored younger depressor so Ains loves going to this doctor ;)!
Ainsley has enjoyed building things lately! She loves to watch YouTube logo builds. I will find the most elaborate "structures" that she's build in her room. I'll take pictures next time!
This week we had a free food pantry for our students! A local pastor has a weekly food pantry for his church and he has established relationships with local food markets. He arrived early Wednesday morning with a truck full of fresh fruit and veggies and other goodies for the students. Food insecurity-not having access to healthy and regular food options is a concern for many in our community. I am thankful to be a part of this effort! 
Ryan has been wanting to take us to this new restaurant for weeks...literally he mentions it everyday!
It was very good!

 You can feed the fish! They we so small! Eventually you can fish there and they will cook what you catch!
A happy Ryan!

Ains could play outside all day! She loved playing at the snowcone place!
