Dancing fools

Last night we went to Chuck e cheese to celebrate Lilli's 4th birthday. Griffin was very scared of the chucke that walked around in costume, and spent awhile just looked paranoid. Ha! But he settled down and we had a blast. Those two are some dancing fools...

Let me take you to Rio Rio...

Griffin's favorite movie is probably Rio. It's a super cute movie with great music. Last weekend, for my mom's birthday we drove down to Gallatin to watch Rio 2 with my family. We ended up seeing it in 3D, and Griffin did great. We thought he wouldn't keep the glasses on, but he did. He laughed and had a blast. The movie was cute, but it's so much cuter watching it thru his eyes.

SGBC Eggstravaganza 2014

This past Saturday was our church's annual Easter egg hunt. Last year, we had it in our new building due to rain (like in classrooms!). It was better than nothing but was definitely a bit different. This year, the weather was so perfect! It was a gorgeous, sunny, warm day. Praise The Lord!

It is crazy to think how much my little guy has grown since his first hunt. This year he even helped us "hide" the eggs! He was a great helper all day.

He did great at his egg hunt too! He was running around picking up those eggs as fast as he could, which meant he missed his basket half of the time! Haha! I think he had a blast. So did Eli, Lilli, and even Ellie Girl!

Look how much older he and Eli look just from last year to this year!

Last year:

This year:

He can even climb up the inflatable all by himself now!! What?!!

Road Trip with Uncle D

Last week was Uncle D's spring break. So he and Griffin decided to take a road trip to Louisville to see Grandma and Papaw and Uncle Ed. They played non-stop at two different parks, flew kites, had ice cream and basically spoiled him rotten... He had such a blast!

Thanks for the road trip Uncle D!

Mommy and Daddy enjoyed the sleep ;-)

Family visits are the best!

Knekne and Peeps headed up a few weekends ago to get some Griffin time. He was spoiled rotten and loving it.

They even had some hilarious times playing games...

Then the next day Mimi, Livvi, and Gigi came to play! I only got one picture bc they ran around like crazy kids!

Can you find griffin?

My parents and Livvi came back up yesterday to visit again. And it was wonderful having them here.

I love when our families visit!!

Spring Zoo Trip

A few Saturdays ago, we realized we had absolutely nothing we had to do. That's a pretty rare occurrence for the Pate's. So we went to Judy's Castle for breakfast (a local fav), and then decided to go to the Nashville Zoo.

It was actually really packed, but the weather was perfect! The bull was right up on the fence and the boys got to touch it.

Take me out to the ball game...

Our church did a guys night out a few weeks ago, where they invited older and younger guys to go play some basketball in WKU's auxiliary gym, then watch the Tops afterwards. Griffin went, as well as Eli and his dad Eric. Our boys had a ball!

Eli doesn't like loud noises, so he has some noise canceling headphones. So griffin decided to put his little headphones (actual plug in headphones) on too! Haha

Then a few weeks later we met the Watsons at a WKU Baseball game. Our crazy boys really had a ball dancing and eating tons of popcorn.

Ellie girl even did well at the game, though it was a pretty boring no score game to watch. Can't wait until it gets even warmer and we do it again!
