2009 in Review - April

On Friday, April 3rd, Mom and I drove from Cades to Myrtle Beach to stay overnight. While it was 75 degrees and sunny at the beach, there were major wind gusts blowing (gusting?) through. Eva was not enjoying that much wind in her face and couldn't seem to catch her breath. So we didn't stay on the beach for long.
We went to Bovine's Steakhouse in Murrell's Inlet for dinner. I had shrimp and grits for the first time and it was fabulous!
On Saturday, Eva posed for this great photo in our hotel room. It is one of my favorites.

Then we headed back to Cades and had a photo shoot around the deer decoy.

What? Doesn't everyone have a shot up plastic deer in their yard???

That's just one of the many charms of the house in Cades, nicknamed "Lizard's Thicket" after the plethora of lizards that hang out around the house (another of the charms.)

On Sunday, we made our way back to Columbus.

The next week was Easter -- Eva's first! Here is her basket, full of candy that Eva's Mommy and Daddy love, a few books, bubbles and a game.

We celebrated with the traditional Easter Egg Hunt and an excellent dinner at Mom and Shelly's. Don't the kids look thrilled to be in their Sunday best?

Eva had a costume change before naptime. (Don't worry, she didn't sleep with the ears on.)
The weekend after Easter, we had beautiful weather again. So, guess where we went? The zoo!

Here are Eva and her Daddy in the kangaroo enclosure. (If Dan looks a little funny in this picture, it's because his goatee has been shaved off for the NHL playoffs. And that's all we'll say about the playoffs.)

While we didn't attend the OSU Football Spring Game this year, Eva still wanted to show her love for the Buckeyes.
And finally, to close out April, here is a ridiculous/funny/cute picture of Eva.
