It's done.  She is gone.  It's pouring rain.  I can't stop crying.
Goodbye my Tinky Belle. You were the sweetest cat in the world.  I will miss you terribly.  I hope you know how much you were loved and will always be loved.

We had a lot of fun at the Easter Experience today.  It was hosted by a local church and everything there was FREE.  We had popcorn, water, popsicles, and cotton candy.  The kids played tons of carnival games and went in the bouncy house.  They won several prizes.  The egg hunt went very well for the boys but no so well  for little Princess.  That was okay because her older brother shared his eggs with her.  Such sweetness.  It was perfect weather outside and lots of fun to have some relaxing family time.
 Posing with the bunny as we entered the Easter Experience.

 This was cute.

 A helicopter flew overhead a few times before the first egg hunt.

 Duckie Game

 Another prize!

 Excited for the bouncy house!

 Waiting for their turn at the baseball throwing game.

 Love, love, LOVE this photo.

 Lining up for the 2:30 egg hunt.

 It was a big crowd.

 The helicopter is getting ready.

 If you look closely you can see eggs being tossed out of the helicopter.

 More eggs!

 It was sad that some of the parents had their children cheat.  

 More games!

 Bugs won this 2 liter at the ring toss game.

 We waited in a long line for cotton candy.  These people were working hard.

 Boo Bear went and played the ring toss game.  She won!

 Blue tongues!

Ice cream!

The zoo had some visitors on Sunday for a kid's day.  One section was a "Musical Petting Zoo".  It was really cool & had all sorts of instruments you could try out and play with.  I decided to do some entertaining.  Lol.

For now we are wanting her to stay a little girl as long as possible but this gave us a little glimpse into what the future might look like.

A few photos from Princess' Princess Party.  It was splendid!

We can't do a whole house overhaul because we are getting ready for Princess's birthday party on Saturday.  But I did want to get a few things cleaned out as we were prepping for the birthday party.  Cleaning out behind the downstairs entertainment center led to a purge and organization of videos.  I did this last summer but it was time to do it again.  We started last night and finally finished around lunch time.
