Best Weather!

Today was some of the nicest weather I have seen in a while. It was crispy cool and sunny. We played outside for the better part of the afternoon.

From 3:30 to 5:00, I sat at the picnic table and drafted some Orders while the boys played in the yard.  After Michael got home we decided to fly the "Leonardo" kite.

Sam would run through the yard yelling, "Weonardo!"

We got it going pretty high.  Then Michael attempted to sabotage my superior kite flying by throwing and kicking balls at it.

Next we played on the playground.  Sam has learned to climb the rock wall all by himself.  At one point he started to struggle and said, "mom, I can't."  I assured that he could that he had done it several times already today.  He put one foot in front of the other and with each step said, "I CAN!"  It was so funny.

Finn decided to go down on his belly.  Right before take-off he said, "I don't think this is going to be a good idea." He went any…

Squarefest and Hank's Birthday

On Saturday I woke up bright and early to go help set up for Squarefest.  Judge Brown had a booth out in the square.  It was really fun day.  There was music, local food and local shopping.

Michael and Gran brought the boys by for a few minutes.
Finn ate some Italian Ice then played golf over at Judge's booth.  (We brought games over for the kids).

Later than evening we went to Hank's "Minion" Birthday party.

Easter 2014

Today is Easter Sunday morning.  Before church we all ate breakfast together.  Finn was so excited about getting to eat eggs and donuts for breakfast.

After breakfast, the boys opened their Easter baskets.  We got them both rubber band shot guns, finger paints, and Peeps.  The Peeps were a huge hit.

Next we took our obligatory Easter pictures.

We went to church with Gran and Pa.  David and Aunt Sharon were there as well.  Finn and Sam both went to Children's Church and made marshmallow tomb treats.  From what I gather, you wrap the marshmallow in a crescent roll and then when you cook the crescent, the marshmallow cooks away, signifying the empty tomb.  The teacher brought all the kids back into the auditorium to show the adults.  When the teacher asked what happened to the marshmallow, Finn yells out, "We ate it."

After a quick nap, we went over to Gran and Pa's for dinner.  Before eating the boys opened their Easter baskets.

Finn got a "silly Rabbid."
