Preston's First (Official) Haircut

I've trimmed Preston's hair a few times but it came to the point where he really needed his first real haircut. We took him to the cutest kids haircut place in East Sacramento. They had this police car that he could play in while they cut his hair. It only made him happy for a few minutes.
Until the guy started wetting his hair...
And combing it....
And cutting it.
It was really so pitiful. Daddy trying to comfort him.
Some snacks made him happy for a little bit.
It didn't last long.

He didn't like her either.

But it turned out great and was much needed!

It might be true that parents get more excited about holidays than their kids. I was so happy for Preston to get his first Easter basket!

Look at those curls!

We were happy to celebrate Easter in Alamo this year and it was even better because Grandma and Grandpa Carter came and spent the day with us. What kid gets to have both sets of grandparents around?!
Getting ready for the egg hunt (my parents were watching Matt and Lyndsey's kids while they were on a cruise!)

Lining up youngest to oldest...almost...

Here's a little video of Preston collecting eggs

Pretty sure Tommy collected the most eggs

I think Preston needs a haircut :)
It was a wonderful day and we are so grateful for the reason we celebrate, the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We know it is through Him that we will live again.

Surprise 50th for Dee

Aaron's Aunt Janice had the great idea to throw a surprise 50th for Dee. It made it even more of a surprise because we had it a month after she turned 50.
My parents came over to Manteca for the party
