Hunting easter eggs never gets old.

 
By Mike at May 2, 2011 - 19:24

We made the trip down to Wilburton for Easter. It was our first trip back since moving, and that three hour drive from OKC seems so much less painful than the trip from Austin. It was a weekend jam packed with multiple egg hunts, hanging out with the fam, and we also attended our ten year high school reunion.

Not a lot changes in ten years. We all pretty much looked the same and nobody was crippled by old age yet, so that was good.

My lovely wife has gotten even more beautiful! I'm glad I didn't give up after she turned me down for prom ten years ago. I knew she would eventually settle for me if I kept trying... :-)

Beau was ultra competitive in the egg hunts this year. I might have actually seen him throw some elbows. He was trying to make up for all the lost candy from last year when he just would stand there while all the other kids pick up the eggs. I think we had about 5lbs of candy afterwards, and were lucky to make it home without him puking in the car or going into a sugar coma.

Here are some more pics from the Easter trip.

Eli caught on pretty quick.

It spins!

Eli's favorite part about dying easter eggs was smashing them right after...

Three out of four looking at the camera is pretty impressive.

There's some more pics of the hunt in this album.

The next weekend Beau and Eli's cousin Sean came for a visit. They had a fun time showing Sean how to operate the power wheels jeep and how to get to the playground.

We're still loving the new neighborhood. Beau and Eli love playing out front with the other kids that live in our cul-de-sac. They are especially obsessed with their neighbor Piper. They wait all day for Piper to get home and lord help us if she ever has to be away for a few days...

Beau told Charlene that he was going to stand there, and she should sneak around and surprise him. Somehow he was still really surprised.

This was difficult to watch. Too many memories of me being a little brother and having to haul around my fatty brother on his skateboard as he held on to a rope that was tied to my bike. Eli has so much more of this to look forward to.

That boy can be rotten and cute at the same time...

Eli thought sidewalk chalk tasted delicious.

I also caught some sweet dance moves on video today. I don't know where they learned these sweet moves... they must be taking lessons.

Time flies...

No update in three months? I am awesome at blogging... Instead of attempting to fill you in on the last three months, I'm just going to pretend that I had posted regular updates, and we'll just start fresh. Just in case you missed some status updates via facebook, here is what went down in the bockus household the last few months.

  • We closed on our house and moved.  Hooray!
  • We announced that we were pregnant, but we lost the baby at 15 weeks.  It's been really hard, but we're doing a tiny bit better each day.
  • I failed to get Beau signed up for t-ball in time for the spring season, so instead he's doing gymnastics.  He's about as coordinated as his old man. We won't miss the fall deadline for baseball.
  • Eli is popping teeth like crazy, adding new words to his vocabulary everyday, and still likes to pick fights with the tile floor using his forehead. 
  • Beau is obsessed with the four year old girl next door.  She drives him around in her pink mustang and lets him play on her awesome swing set.  I'm pretty sure he would move in with her if we let him. 
  • My Grandpa passed away. :-(

 I failed to take very many pics since we moved into the new house.  Seems like we're always busy doing some project to get settled in the house.  If we ever build a house again, I'll be paying the extra money to have the builders do all the little projects I signed myself up to do in order to save money.  I had no idea running a few wires, installing cabinet hardware, and installing a garage door opener would be so time consuming.

 Welp, until the next update you can enjoy some pics of way back in Feb 2011. Here are a few of my favorites from snowpocalypse...

Should never have tried to get the snowball action shot. Got me right on the lens...

A family pic next to our awesome snowman.

He suffered a horrible death... it took days to melt.

Beau turns 3!

 
By Mike at January 9, 2011 - 22:54

Beau turned three on January 4th. We celebrated with the grandparents and Beau had been looking forward to his Mickey cake for months. He was really sad to find out that his third birthday only lasted one day...

PaPa told Beau to close his eyes and make a wish and then blow out the candles. He left out the part about reopening his eyes after he was done with his wish. It's a little more difficult to blow out candles when your eyes are closed.

I think Beau might need to work on his hand gesture for being three...

Eli turned 15 months on Beau's third birthday. He learns a little too much from his brother, so he's turning into our little monster. His nickname around the house is babyzilla...

I added a few more pics in the January 2011 album.
