My little Easter Bunny

Alexa enjoyed searching for her Easter Eggs very much but that wasn't nearly as exciting as....

learning there were treats inside. Mmmmmm!!!

Like Father like Daughter

I love this picture! They are walking the same! And just so you know...Paul is carrying a camera bag, not a purse (in case you were wondering).

Family from Sweden

A couple weeks ago, my cousin Ulrika and her fiance, Robert, came to visit from Sweden. Ulrika's Mom and my grandmother were first cousins. My great grandparents immigrated to the United States but most of their families stayed in Sweden. Luckily we've been able to keep in touch with many of my great-grandfather's side of the family. Paul and I went to visit them 5 years ago and now it was their turn to visit the states. We were so glad they came for a visit and we had a great time! Here are some of the highlights:

Henry Doorly Zoo - Omaha
I love the zoo!! This was also Alexa's first time there and I think she had a great time too.
Robert, Ulrika, Paul & Alexa smiling in the Desert Dome

Walking on a bridge in the Rainforest

We of course had to take them to Valentino's buffet, a Lincoln original!

Ulrika & Alexa, new best friends

Family Dinner at MISTY's in Lincoln. Good food and good company. 17 of us were able to be there.The steak was yummy!!

Ulrika & Robert with my Grandpa Gene. He's also been to Sweden several times to visit

Looking for buffalo at Pioneer's Park

University of Nebraska Lincoln's Husker Stadium

Playing a little Wii bowling

Robert, Ulrika, and John at the SAC Museum near Ashland

We had a lot of fun and hope to see them again soon!!

Catching Up January & February

Here are a few pics I missed posting from January and February:


One of Alexa's new favorite places is the Lincoln Children's Museum. These are pictures from her first trip there (there have been many since):


Alexa with Uncle John and Great-grandma Amy. She was really hamming it up!

"What's all the husker hype about anyway?"

Alexa was not at all happy about playing in the snow on this day. I think it probably had more to do with the very stylish snow suit we had her in

The Sheep Says Baa

This video is a few weeks old but still fun!

Egg Hunt

Alexa did a great job on her first egg hunt. She seemed to know exactly what to do!
