Boy Moms Rule!

The Easter Bunny brought Will a surprise egg a few days before Easter filled with jelly beans.  He was thrilled to say the least.  He carried the egg around pretty much the whole day.

Eli getting in on the egg dying action.  He just woke up from his a.m. nap so he is still
 looking a little sleepy.  Boys have the greatest pjs!

At Auntie Shan's house on Saturday for an Easter egg hunt!  Boys love digging in the dirt, rolling down hills and splashing in muddy puddles.  He did just that.

Willsy dying his eggs.  I have to say, Will is not into crafts unless it is painting.  So...he really did not get into egg dying hence the fake smile.  Some boys just don't like being crafty. 

Close up of our egg dying.  I forgot the vinegar and didn't have any lemon juice on hand.  Our eggs were VERY pale.  My boy didn't care that mommy forgot a key ingredient, he was happy to just stick his hands in colored water!

Eli sporting his mommy's roots!  Go BIG Red!  Blue eyed boys, melt my heart.

Willsy visiting Eli in his neck of the woods...I love these airplane sheets that were Will's.  I hope that my boys will be the best of buds.  Eli already giggles at Willsy when he dances around.

So true.  Eli often will try and grab the spoon out of my hands while I feed him.  This little guy, LOVES to eat.  I don't think I will have a picky eater on my hands.  Boys are messy and I am okay with it.

Daddy and Eli enjoying a nice spring day.  Daddy looks exhausted because he has been 
working a lot lately!  My boys all look a lot a like with a hint of mommy thrown in the mix.

Love my boys.

I am beginning to realize the many benefits of being a boy mom.

One day they will want to go fishing with daddy.  Mommy will get a spa day.

They will want to go to baseball games with Daddy, I might go but then I could go and get a massage.

They will want to go to Monster Truck shows, I will not want to go and I will go and get a pedicure.

They will want to go camping with Daddy, I might go but I could have a day to myself, reading and just relaxing.

Being a boy mom has many benefits.  As much as I always wanted to have a little girl, I am ALL boy mom.  After all, I am the luckiest woman in the world.  I have 2 boys and a husband, and I am their first loves.
