Easter eggs

We decorated Easter eggs today (sadly, for the first time)! It was fun even though I was very nervous about the egg dye! We did sports eggs which the boys loved!

Drying the eggs in the makeshift holder that it comes with.

Don't squeeze so hard, Aidan!

Concentrating on placing the stickers.

Aidan thought this was very cool!
The finished product! Do you think the boys will really eat hard boiled eggs?...my bet is no!

Chalk is not just for sidewalks...

Watching a movie during Spring Break...
Loving the PJs.

We gave the boys sidewalk chalk today to keep them busy while we cleaned out the garage. We came back to a decorated porch...doors, windows, siding, brick, bench, and sidewalks. We also fed them lunch outside and changed their clothes before letting that chalk business inside!
Good times.

March 21 SNOW!

The start of Spring Break 2010!

March 21, 2010!

Jake and Aidan's snow hockey player. (Zachary got cold and cried about 10 minutes into the snow adventure!)


Superhero Zachary! My mom helped me make superhero capes for the boys. I think they turned out great!!

Practicing his moves!

Spring weather before the SNOW comes tomorrow!

We went to Murphy Park in Springdale today. The boys fed the ducks with some healthy wheat bread loaf heels! They thought that was pretty fabulous. Aidan tried to convince me after the park trip that we had to eat at Chick-fil-a because we fed the ducks all of our sandwich bread. Oh, you are mistaken, little boy!

What do you think of Aidan's ultra cheesy Lightning McQueen hat?! I can't get him to wear anything else since he picked that out and someone let him buy it! :)

Such sweet boys! Love them!

This kid has no fear! He even went down the twirly tunnel slide head first! He did it before I could stop him (and was fine). He is not even 2 yet!

Aidan and new park friend, Jason. Jason brought those awesome trucks to the park and shared with Aidan. Aidan and Jason had the best time!

Playing on the street

Playing outside when Robin came to visit!

We live on a quiet little street and I can't keep the kids out of the street! If we ever move they will not know how to stay on the sidewalk!

Ball boy.

Working for his playtime! I promise, I don't make him keep his helmet on all of the time, he does it voluntarily!

It is finally nice outside!

We spent the morning "hiking" today. The boys are now 4 1/2 and almost 2. This is not going to be the summer o' hiking. Let me start by saying, it was 60 degrees and sunny today, we all had a breakfast of homemade muffins and were well rested. It was complaints of being tired, hungry, and thirsty from the first step! This picture of sitting on the bench having a snack was literally about 100 feet into the walk (after Jake had carried Zachary because he refused to walk!)

Isn't that pathetic and pitiful?!

Sitting on the grass for a break about 100 feet after the bench snack!

We finally got a little action out of Zachary when we went off the trail-go figure!

Swinging break...

We found a playground and suddenly the boys came to life! Aidan was so proud that he could climb the rock wall all by himself!

Zachary found a ball-his all time favorite! He never let it leave his sight for the rest of the morning!
