On Easter morning we were able to celebrate Easter Service with Avalyns birthfamily and get family pictures. It was a lovely day. Avalyn is so blessed to have so many people who love her.

Easter Brunch

While in Florida we went to the Outback Oasis for an Easter Brunch and egg hunt.  The Oasis is beautiful with lots of pretty flowers and waterfalls.  They even hadve 2 resident kangaroos!  The brunch was delicious and the kids got a bag full of goodies.  They also had crafts and games.  Avalyn also got to see her birthmom and new baby sister!

Easter Train

We won a family 4 pack to the Easter train!  We had so much fun last year and were excited to go again this year.  Ava invited her best pal Micah and they had a blast.  Ava loved the Easter bunny and she got lots of prize eggs!

Avalyn was Star Student of the Week. She got to bring home the class "Pet" Ellie the Elephant for the weekend. It even came home in a pet carrier, lol!  We took lots of pictures of Ellies weekend adventures with Avalyn. They had a sleepover in a tent in the living room, dyed Easter eggs, went to see Disney on Ice in Downtown KC, visited Baby Noah, and even met the Archbishop!

In addition to bringing Ellie home they had a fun theme each day of the week

Monday - Bring weekend pictures for the bulletin board and tell the class about her weekend
Tuesday - Avalyn was interviewed by her class
Wednesday - Bring your favorite book for story time.  She chose Billie's Underwater Adventure
Thursday  - Bring a special item to share - She chose her autograph book from Disney World
Friday - The entire class drew Ava pictures and wrote her notes

She had so much fun as Start Student of the Week!

Disney on Ice

We loved Disney on Ice Follow you Heart! It featured the storylines of Inside Out, Finding Dori, Beauty and the Beast, and Frozen. Ava especially loved when it "snowed" during Frozen.  We also enjoyed seeing all the princesses.
