I have a fun induced headache

I haven't been very good at blogging lately. There are many reasons for this-

1. I have a 2 year old and an 8 month old.
2. I don't have a computer
3. I had strep throat. It wasn't pretty.
4. I have had 4 kids in my house this past week.
5. Did I mention that I didn't have a computer?

Well, let me clarify. I do have one thanks to our fantastically awesome friend Jerry who let me have an old computer from his office. Unfortunately it takes 5 minutes to load a page so I use it to read the front page of news websites and that's about it. Just needed that caveat in there since I technically have one.

And now I am using my husbands since he is in the shower and can't say anything about it.

I digress.

Back to my fun induced headache. Despite three of us having strep (me, Bennett, and my niece) we had a great week. My parents came to see us and brought two of my nieces with them. We watched movies, made popcorn, went to a park, dressed up in costumes, went to an arcade, ate at the train restaurant, had an Easter egg hunt, went to an indoors water park, laughed a lot, cuddled up and read books, went to see a play about Junie B. Jones, went to a carnival, and just played. Pretty fun if you ask me. Oh, and I can now tell you anything you want to know about Hannah Montana. Just try me. I dare you.

There was still some snow on the ground when the girls got here. There wasn't much left, but these 'Bama girls loved it.

Morning cuddles with baby Will.

Having a swingin' good time.

Inflatables always make a day better. If you don't believe me, ask any 4 year old.

Mommy and Daddy Suttle with 4 of their 5 grandchildren. The 5th will be here in KC next week!

Two princesses and a cow. Sounds like a fairy tale gone horribly wrong.

Hanging out on a lazy river in March. How I love indoor water parks. I wish I had a picture of the monster slides that Emmie and I went down. I was so proud of her and I threw my hands up in the air and partied like I just didn't care. Because I am Jay-R.

Uncle Rob only appears when we are in arcades apparently.

Eating ice-cream at our favorite candy store, Sweet Caroline's.

In downtown KC on our way to see a play.

Wow! Just think of how much fun we would have had if strep hadn't knocked us out for a few days. They left yesterday and I miss the girls so much already. Bennett keeps walking around the house saying, "Oh, no! What happened to Sutton?" Where did Emmie go?" When my parents loaded everyone in the car to leave, Bennett stood on the doorstep and bawled, "Bennett in car! Bennett in CAR!!" It broke my heart. Fortunately I am leaving in 3 hours to head to the airport to pick up their big sister. Let the good times roll.
