Since we have such a nice backyard we thought it would be fun to have an Easter Egg hunt for the kids. Ava was really into hunting eggs this year so this was fun for her. A few friends from work came and we grilled out and let the kids hunt eggs and eat lots of candy.

Ava's school did a little spring program. It was really funny watching the 2,3, and 4 year olds do their skits and songs. Ava's class did a few songs and it was really sweet. She was a little shy but other than that she did very well. It is amazing how much she has learned this year. She know her ABCs, can recognized the letters and knows what sound they make. She is working now on us telling her how to spell something and writing the letters out. She is really big on knowing what works start with and the sounds they make. Hopefully she will be reading soon. She also knows her numbers up to about 25 and can count things out. She only has 4 other boys in her class at school so we have been extremely lucky with the amount of one on one instruction she gets at school. It has really made a huge difference this year with her learning and development.

We did not have any big plans for spring break this year but we did plan on going to the zoo. So on Wednesday we headed to the zoo with Meme and Ping. The weather was beautiful but the zoo was really crowded. Even with the crowds we had a great day. All the animals were out and we got to see everything. What was Ava's favorite animal......................the pandas of course. They were our first stop of the day and by far her favorite. Even Baby Bear got to come on the trip to the zoo!!!
