Magic Springs

Mark and I decided that this year NJ was big enough to get a season pass to Magic Springs (the local amusement and water park). Saturday Mark, Emma and I went to Magic Springs to check it out and see what all NJ would be able to ride. Emma had so much fun. She road 2 rides and then just hung out in the stroller while Mark and I took turns riding some rides. Sunday after church Mark met us at the restaurant for NJ's big surprise. NJ couldn't figure out exactly what was going on but she stood in line like a big girl and go her picture made for her pass. Then it was off to the rides. NJ wasn't a big fan of all the rides but she really enjoyed the train. We got her on a couple more rides but she wanted to go back to the train for one last ride before left. I did get her to ride the log ride with me and she wasn't to thrilled. She tired to get off in the middle of the ride but she stuck it out and says that she will ride with her daddy next time. The water park will be opening this weekend so I think she will have more fun when she can get in the water and play. I hopefully will have some better pictures this summer but for now here are the pictures Mark took with his phone.

Emma's first ride

Emma loves to go up and down on these big horses.

First ride of the day and NJ is in a great mood.

Second ride of the day and NJ is so scared, she can't lift her hand to wave to the camera.

Still scared but we got a little smile out of her

Easter Cont...

I forgot to add easter egg hunt pictures to my last post so here are some.

It was a little cool.

Emma did really good!

Our only Easter Bunny picture!

Emma is ONE!!!

Yesterday was Emma's first birthday. It was a very sad day because my baby isn't a baby anymore. She had a great day. The girls played most of the day and just hung out around the house. Then last night we met Daddy, Granddad, and Grams at Danny's and had a great supper. Before we left the entire restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" to Emma. Emma couldn't believe that everyone was singing to her. After dinner we all went to Granddad and Grams' and had cake and opened presents. Emma had tried the cake at the restaurant and didn't really like her hand being covered in icing. The second try and G and G's wasn't any better. She like looking a all her presents better. Notice I didn't say opening, NJ was the big helper who opened them and showed them to Em. When we got home she was just to excited to go to bed so she played with her toys and stayed up late. I think she enjoyed her first birthday!!


What can I say about our Easter Sunday? Well to start the day off my van had no gas so the girls and I sat in the car for an hour until poor Mark could get enough gas to get us going. OK, so I got the bad out of the way I can now get to the good.

Look at that beautiful Hair

Emma doesn't know what happened.

The girls woke up in a great mood. They loved what the Easter bunny left them so they played while I go ready. Besides being an hour late to church we had a great Sunday service, NJ was so happy because her daddy came to church. After church we went home to a great Easter lunch that Mark had prepared. Then it was off to the Village Easter Egg Hunt. The girls did great. Emma got 8 eggs all by herself and NJ got 23 eggs. NJ had really gotten good at the whole finding eggs thing because this was her 3rd hunt in less than a week.
The girls and their friend Hayden.
(Boy is it hard to get a 1, 2, and3 year old to sit still)

This is Cinderella in her Castle with the Vanity she got from Grams and Granddad

We are alive!!

I have been very neglectful of the blog in the last couple of week, for that I am sorry. The family has been busy having fun. With spring here it has been hard to stay inside most weekends. We have gone up on top of Tower Mountain a couple of times and visited a couple different parks. NJ believes that we should go somewhere everyday but Emma doesn't have as much fun at the park yet.

Emma has started walking this month and she is up and into everything. Not that she wasn't into everything to begin with but now that she is walking there is no stopping her. Emma is much different than NJ was at this age and she is much harder to keep up with. Emma has cuts and bruises on almost every part of her body. Most people think she is a boy because she is so scuffed up all the time.

I will try to do better with my posting, this is just a small update on the Lane family.
