Spending time with G&G Scellick

The girls & I drove over to Grandpa & Grandma Scellick's house earlier than planned last week. We ended up leaving our house for theirs on Monday and stayed until yesterday. Ben drove over Thursday night, which ended up working out just great, considering the pass closed on Friday at the same time we would have originally been traveling. I was able to spend afternoons without the girls, while G&G watched them and it was so nice. I rarely get this luxury, so when it does happen, it's a God send.

When we got back to our house last night, Veronica was in uproar about NOT being at Grandma & Grandpa's house. She had one long meltdown over having to spend the night at our house & even regretted her decision upon rolling into the driveway about leaving "puppy" there. Such a fickle little girl. Later on this month, Ben and I are going to La Jolla, while the girls stay with G&G again. Veronica knows this, so when I announced it was time to go home yesterday, she said, "Mama leave and go on a airplane!" Of course, she was implying that Cadence & her were suppose to stay at G&G's house, while Ben & I left. I'm glad to know that she feels comfortable enough to stay there without us (I guess that also explains more Veronica outbursts specifically for G&G, too--she trusts them enough to widen the audience of just mama & papa).

Here are some of my favorite pictures from our time together, the first being my absolute favorite.

She's Happy,

She's Not!

Reading books, especially Strawberry Shortcake, is a treat.

Veronica enjoyed dying Easter eggs with Grandma & making cupcakes.

Cadence is wearing daddy's apron from when he was a little boy.

Both girls got sunglasses for Easter (and no, this was not posed).

Cadence continued to wear her sunglasses...

...and continued a little more.
