Easter Fun at Irvine Park

We visited Irvine Park and the Easter Bunny the Monday before Easter.  Joey was on his Spring Break and I only work until 10:00am on Mondays.  
It was perfect!  It wasn't crowded at all!

We met up with Zachary's Uncle Brian, Aunt Tammie, and his cousin Sam.
Some of Brian's friends met up too with their boys.

Zachary was too young for the egg hunt this year, but he still enjoyed himself!

 I love how Sam is posing in this one!

 Zachary and Uncle Brian

 Zachary wasn't scared at all, he just wanted to go somewhere else!

 We were so proud of Sam!
Last year he wouldn't get too close!

 Zachary loves these things!

 He had to try it with Daddy........

 Then he had to try it on his own!
He could barely reach!

 Family photo with Zachary looking aloof.......CHECK!

 All the boys!

 Watching the world go by!
I love how he has positioned his feet!

 Of course we took a ride on the train!

He had a wonderful time that day!

Easter Sunday, Easter FUNday!

We all had a great time celebrating Easter with Zachary.  We visited my family first and then Joey's family. Zachary got to have two Easter egg hunts and loved it!  He thought they were instruments and shook each egg and danced when he found one.

Here are just a few pictures off all of the fun:

He had the whole Easter Egg Hunt to himself!

 He didn't always understand the concept of the basket!

 Daddy helped a lot!

 He had a ton of fun with Nana and Pop-Pop!

 My brother rode his bike from Yorba Linda to Fountain Valley and didn't want to be in the picture...

 He figured out what was inside!

 He is so silly!

 His Cousin Sam was making him smile!

 Finding more eggs at Nana and Papa Edmisten's House!

 It was a chilly day.  
(I had to take a picture of him in his cute Hurley outfit!)

He had so much fun!

This Time Last Year...... (Easter Bunny Edition)

This time last year, we took Zachary to the Main Place Mall to meet the Easter Bunny.  He was only about a month old!
I took a picture of the picture in his Baby Book!
Easter 2010

What a little munchkin!

This year we went to Irvine Park!
Easter 2011

It's a perfect representation of Zachary.
He points at everything!

He wasn't scared of the Easter Bunny at all, but just didn't want to sit still very long!

Happy Easter everyone!

This Time Last Year..........

This time last year, we were taking Zachary to his First Angels game

 I was so happy to be out of the house! :)

He slept the whole time!

We recently took him to his first game this season, and it was quite a different experience!
He definitely didn't sleep through the whole thing this time around!

We all enjoyed being at the game!

He pretended to watch for a few minutes......but really, he wanted to climb on the rail.
He also modeled the promotional beanie from the previous night!

(It fit much better than the hat we made him wear last year.....)

I love thinking about how much we have all grown in just a year!

Another Blog!!?!!

I am known by many of my friends as the "go to" person when someone is looking for a deal on something. I decided a few months ago to start a separate blog about it, but wasn't quite ready to reveal it, until now.

Please check out my other, brand new blog:

I would love for you to add it to your blog list, follow it, or bookmark it.

Tracy's Favorite Things - Mommy Edition

Although I stopped nursing months ago, I still feel like I need to share with the world how great the "My Brest Friend" nursing pillow is. 

This nursing pillow saved my "nursing" life!

I know the Boppy pillows are very popular, and cute, but for nursing, mine just wasn't cutting it!  I tried it for a few days, but it wouldn't stay high enough to really support Zachary and I ended up putting other pillows under it or just hunching over. 

A few days after we brought Zachary home, I went to my check up at the Mother/Baby Center and the nurse suggested the "My Brest Friend."  It changed everything!

I loved how it wrapped all the way around me and was adjustable.  It has a great foam piece that supports your back too!  It's like a little shelf for baby to rest on.  It also makes nursing hands-free. 

I am so crazy about this item that I have stopped total strangers at Babies R Us who are looking at a Boppy and tell them to get a "My Brest Friend."

This is one of my FAVORITE baby items ever! 
I think every nursing Mommy needs one!

Do any of you have one?
Comment and tell me why you love it so much!!

This is the one that I have:
