Happy Easter!

Hey friends! It's Easter Sunday but Toshi and I are just at home, relaxing! We were going to an Easter Egg Hunt, but we decided that we are going to avoid the long lines, the hot sun, and all the crankiness by skipping the egg hunt. We already did one yesterday anyway! And Tomas and I are going to do one for him at home later today.

And a bit of warning, there will be several unedited photos following this line. :)

We dyed eggs for the first time! Can't believe we've never done this.

We started with Friday crafts! Toshi has been waiting to do these fun stuffs for like a week! He was excited!

Extra paint from birdhouse painting turned into toe paintings!

We went Easter Egg Hunting in Pershing Square. We loved it last year and I was sure we were going to again this year. There were so many people. TOO MANY. And it was so hot! We loved the little acts, but that's about it!

He enjoyed these so much, I felt so sad telling him he couldn't play there again because his age group already had a turn!

We've seen Epoxie perform several times now. He's so funny!
Also, breaks my heart that Toshi raises his hand ever so eagerly but he never gets called on! :(

Easter at home was fun! We wished that Daddy was home, but that is why we are having an egg hunt later! Yay!

Toshi could not believe that the Easter bunny came by and brought him all sorts of goodies. Goodies that he loved so much! He even loved the basket! :)

And some almost instragrammed photos...

I hope your Easter was grand!

An IG Meet Up

Yesterday, Toshi and I drove down approximately 35miles to meet with one of our IG (&Vine) friends! I was pretty nervous but excited to meet someone "new"! It was definitely a great experience and I am definitely looking forward for more of these!

Toshi was pretty darn shy at first, which I expected, but he eventually wound down and totally hit it off with them! Wish we had more time together, darn parking meters! But this is definitely not our last hangout!

Toshi and I both loved Little Melina, Ryan, and Ann! What a cool family!

Little Toshi enjoyed tickling Little Melina!

Honey Biscuits

This morning little Toshi woke up and proclaimed his hunger. I asked what he wanted to eat and he remembered that we went grocery shopping yesterday... So he requested some biscuits.
We made a little video, testing out the pause function on my phone's video recording. I wish I opened the window for more light in our tiny kitchen, but we had fun!

Deep thoughts tonight

"when are you gonna die?" is one of tonight's questions. Ray appears to be thinking about stuffs today.

For dinner, we had Hawaiian Bbq. As we sat there, Ray asked how many babies have been born in him. I asked him what he meant by that... and he said... "well, someone must have given me my mole!" Ray has a mole on one of his feet and he loves it. We noticed it when he was maybe 1 or 2 years old, it just appeared one day! I love that he asked this question because it just shows that he is making so much connections in his brain. This needs a background story, so that you can understand as well.

I have a mole on my stomach. It appeared there when I was pregnant with my Toshi. Four years later and the mole is still there! We tell him... "You see this mole? Mommy got this when you were in my tummy. When you were in there, you poked me and left me a mark." He loves this story. He asks to hear about it all the time. 

And so, can you see where he's getting this question of how many kids has been inside of him. Too. Funny.

Fast forward about an hour and a half. Now, we're at home. He's talking about I'm not sure what anymore, but I remember he said, "One day I'm gonna die and one day you're gonna die" to his Daddy. I don't remember the rest because apparently I was not really paying attention. Oops!

However, as I was walking out of the door (we had to go pick up someone), he asked when I was gonna die. I responded with an "I don't know." He said he's gonna die when he's old, when he's 100 days old. Yup, 100 days old. Conversation keeps going and he asks, "what's gonna happen if everyone dies?" Me: "At the same time?" Him: "No, one by one." Me: Well, people are born all the time so it's gonna be okay. Him: "Whenever a lady dies, a baby pops out of her!" That made me chuckle. Haha.

Ray's photobook

So, I finally ordered his photobook. Technically, it's not finished. The smiles page is totally missing lots and lots of photos, but I completely forgot to save some pictures for it and I just don't have the time to cross-reference smiling photos to ones that are already in the book! Oh well! Still. Love. It. Can't wait to get it in the mail! I'm sure Ray will love it! And, thanks to Kelle Hampton for sharing this idea with her readers! I don't know why I didn't think of it!

Here it is if you'd like to see!

Go to Shutterfly and make your own! Those treasured photos deserve to be on your coffee table!

Also, I am so swamped with homework this week! Hope to be done soon so I could do some updating here!
