Lots of fun

I have a lot of pictures to post. Some from Houston. Some from Easter. Some from Virginia City. We went there last week and wandered around and got some of the old fashioned pictures done at Garters and Bloomers. It was pretty fun.
The weather is finally starting to get warmer. We had a wedding in Incline Village on Saturday and it was gorgeous. And Sunday was beautiful too. Makes me want to get out and play some softball. Of course the rest of the week, when I had planned to work in the garden, the wind is blowing like 90 miles an hour. Today is supposed to be nice, so maybe I can get outside.
I just have to vent for one minute about the airport. I checked my stroller at the plane in Houston so that it would be waiting for me when I got off the plane. Well...I waited and waited and finally asked if someone was going to bring me my stroller, (this was at midnight, mind you, and Iris was asleep in my arms. They called someone and asked if they were going to bring it up and they said it got put on the truck to take to the baggage claim. So I had to carry Iris all the way through the airport. I wasn't happy. Until I saw Evan. He was waiting with a dozen white roses for me. What a sweetie!! But then we waited at the baggage claim. Got my suitcase and car seat, but no stroller. So we went and asked the lady where it was and she said they had it and would be bringing it right down. We, of course, didn't want to wait since it was almost 1 in the morning so we left our address and told them to deliver it to us. was over a week and we finally just had to go pick it up. It was just sitting there in the office. Obviously, no one was going to deliver it to us. What a headache.
Anyways, on a lighter note, Evan got some more chicks and two turkey chicks. They are getting big fast. Pretty soon we'll be able to take them out of the garage and slowly introduce them to Hopper our big chicken and Bill the Duck. Hopefully these chicks will make it and we'll be able to get some eggs out of them. Hopper is laying about every other day. So that's nice. It'll be fun to see how it goes with the turkeys. Evan wants to raise one for Thanksgiving, but I don't think he'll be able to kill it. We'll see.
I'll have to take some pictures of them and put them on here.

The picture of Iris screaming and hitting Kade with the basketball, was typical behavior the whole time we were there. Kade knocked her over once and she never forgot it. Any time he would start to come towards her, she would scream and take a swing at him. She is such a bully!

She is so sweet and adorable!! I want to see more more more pics of her! And Evan is a sweetheart! Yeah, I'm not impressed with airports either. Ryder and I had a similar experience last year. People don't understand how heavy a sleeping baby can be!

Well we can't wait for tomorrow! Curtis and I are very excited!. Raising turkeys is very interesting and killing them is quite the experience, I will have to tell you about the year my family raised turkeys for Thanksgiving. See you tomorrow!

I cannot believe how big Iris is getting! I truly think that she is a mini Kinsey. Kinz I can totally sympathize with you on the airport thing. When you have kids it is a totally different ball game on the airlines. Sorry that you had such a crummy time. I am so green with envy of you going and seeing Haley though. It is so great that you were able to spend so much time together. Evan, thank you for taking care of my little sis.

Looks like fun! Iris looks just like you, she's so cute. We've had the same kind of weather over here, it's supposed to snow again tomorrow. YUCK. And I hear you about the airport, hopefully next time will be better. :)

Kinsey, Iris is so beautiful. She is getting so big. How are you doing? I miss you. I was running again for a while, but stopped because of hip problems. I miss my running partner!!
