Our Baby is ONE!

Wow how the time has flown by! Yesterday was Cassiah's 1st birthday! Than's sister from Spokane came down for Friday and Saturday with her family. On Saturday Than took Garrick and his niece Sloane fishing (her first time) and she was able to catch a couple fish. The rest of us did a bit of shopping, went to the school and played, visited, and played some Wii! Cassiah had fun with her very own cake, and made a huge mess just like all kids do with their first birthday cake. Cassiah was particularly fond of her Uncle Courtney, who got several snuggles!

Well as usual I had to work the weekend, but still managed to do Easter festivities! What's alittle more sleep deprivation, really! The kids seemed to have fun, and easter candy is good bribary!

At the very beginning of Spring Break the kids and I went down to Tri-Cities. I went to a very fun Baby Shower on Than's side, and got to hang with my family. Here are some of the things we did during our short 4 day stay....

Science Fair

The kids participated in the optional Science Fair at school this year. Garrick dropped eggs in a tupperwear container surrounded buy soft or hard stuff, to see which would protect the egg or not. Aleksia soaked 4 different kinds of beans (100 each) in 1 cup of water, then found out which kind soaked up the most water.
These two should have been at the end, so pretend! For participating, they each got a medal! Which they obviously like, because they wear it around the house like jewelry!

Garrick dropping one of the eggs. I think this was his favorite part!

Nope, not protected in the beans

Nope, not in the rice either!

Aleksia's pics are mainly on another memory card, but here's some of her beans that soaked for 19 hours.

The kidney beans were the winner, at 1.25 oz of water soaked up by 100 beans. She thought the garbanzo beans would win.
