Columbia has an activity every year called "Tons of Trucks." They just have a whole bunch of, you guessed it, trucks all parked in a big parking lot and the kids can go around and sit in them and honk the horns. Basically every little boy's dream come true! They have fire trucks, police cars, garbage trucks, plows, tractors, buses, ambulances, mail trucks, and a helicopter this year. Pretty much anything you could imagine. Brady was in heaven...until the cement truck honked its horn while we were standing right in front of it. I'd be lying if I said it didn't startle me, but it scared Brady half to death.

One of the main reasons we went on our trip was to attend Grandma Hendrickson's 80th birthday party! We are so glad we got to go celebrate this special day with almost the entire Hendrickson side of the family. We sure do miss her and I'm glad that Brady could see her and that she could see how cute Brady is in person. Although he is pretty cute in his pictures, they don't even come close to doing him justice :) Also it's cute to hear Brady say "Grandma Hendrickson." It's a long name, but boy does he try his best!
Brady was also a big fan of the party hats.
We are so glad we were able to go on this trip and are grateful to my parents for making it happen. It was a much needed vacation for us all and it's always nice to see the family. Happy Birthday, Grandma Hendrickson!

Since we were traveling most of Easter day, we had a few different celebration days on our vacation. We dyed eggs at Megan's, and we all had a lot of fun with that.
The Easter bunny came and left Brady's basket at the condo for him to find Saturday morning. Brady mostly cared about the candy (imagine that), but also like this little puppet. He got a little Elmo and Count too that he loves and some other fun things as well. Happy Easter!
For Quentin's last spring break..ever...we were blessed with the chance to go on vacation! We got to go visit Megan and her family in Vegas, and that gave us the chance to finally meet baby Caleb! Brady was so excited about going on the plane and told Lori and his friends at daycare "I gonna ride plane with mommy and grampa." Much to his surprise Grandma, Daddy, Kirsten and Kirk came along too. Brady tried to get Kirk to sit by him on the plane, but Kirsten won that battle. Brady did so good on the plane, especially considering it went right through nap time and he did not fall asleep on the way there. On the way home he eventually fell asleep on Grandma's lap though.
