april 2014 recap.

Unfortunately, April brought with it lots and lots of sickness. I even considered renaming April Sick Selfie Month because my phone was quickly filling up with pictures like these...

As soon as Lachlan would start to feel better, the fever would reappear and we would start all over again.

Even my car got sick this month, stranding me at work!

And as anyone with a sick child would know, sick children equal very little sleep.

I started decorating baby brother's room this month with the purchase of this chevron wool rug from Pottery Barn Kids.

Late in the month I ended up with a very, very bad case of gastroenteritis, leaving me useless for a few days.

Through all the sickness, baby brother still continued to thrive and grow :)

We spent the Easter long weekend camping at the Kenilworth Homestead (read about that here).

The Easter bunny brought Lachlan his first four matchbox cars which were a really, really big hit!

And of course, we spent as much time outside in the fresh air as often as we could.

Overall, it was a full month of feeling pretty crappy but we still managed to squeeze in some fun as well.

easter weekend at the homestead.

After camping at the Kenilworth Homstead last year, we knew it would be the perfect place to spend our Easter long weekend this year. Some of our friends had spent Easter there the previous year and raved about how great it was - and they weren't lying!

I wish I had gotten more pictures, but here are few I took with my iphone (lame, I know!). Because it was a huge camping weekend, the organizers had set up TONS and TONS of events for all of the families and kids. While Lachlan was a big young for most of them, it was still fun to just be around all of the activity. It also gave Lachlan and I something to check out while Max went motorbike riding with the boys one of the days.


April 2014- Easter Camping007

Lachlan rode his first horse (wasn't a fan, btw) and got to hold a baby duck on Easter morning!

Other activities they had scheduled for the weekend included a carnival, rock climbing wall, laser tag, face painting, petting zoo, horseback riding, nightly concerts, swimming in the river, easter egg hunt and plenty more I am sure I am forgetting.

April 2014- Easter Camping006

There were hundreds of people there but it was so well planned and organized that it didn't feel over crowded at all.

April 2014- Easter Camping001

We had such a great weekend and are really looking forward to heading back there again next year!
