St Patrick's

 A new book!

And a pot of gold.

And white chocolate. Yum!

We played pirates outside on the picnic table.

Evan was opposed to the monkey having a sword.

Shark Attack!



We were looking at this map of France and the kids noticed snails on there. When I told them Nana & Papa ate snails over there the kids were mortified and in shock. (Yesterday we had to talk about how we don't eat bugs after Evan put a roly poly in Hailey's water bottle.)


Found the escape boat.

Checking himself out in the mirror. A new pair of underpants after having an accident.


We made sweet potato noodles..... trying something new. After dinner we went sand saw the new Cinderella movie which Hailey loved. Evan lost interest and finally he and Daddy left to spent the last quarter of the movie out in the foyer.

A Morning Outside

Evan refused to wear a diaper, saying he's a big boy and wants to wear underpants. He did really well using the potty today but I'm still skeptical... we've been down this road before.



Lots of Singing.


Empowered by his Batman underpants, Evan leaps about.


Evan's songs interrupted Hailey's song.

Not amused.

Get Set! Jump!


And this goes on and on.

Hailey made a leprechaun trap. There is a red & yellow rainbow inside the jar with a little pot of gold..

Little Miss Lego is the bait.

Cinderella was supposed to be the bait, but she had to wash her hair.

On a walk after dinner.


This cat is friendly.

This one was much more wary.


The kids love to look for cats.


Careful with that boy!

Time to head home.

Someone has been busy at the fairy door!

All ready for the kids to find the goodies in the morning.

Frozen Birthday

We made the trek down to Oceanside for counsin Kaylee's 4th birthday.

Anna and Elsa also came to entertain.


Twirling with Anna.

After this Hailey became super shy and pretty much kept to herself.

Learning how to "freeze" people.

Grandpa was the first to be frozen.


Huddle up.

Loading the candy launcher.

Time to fire!

And then it rained down candy.

Steve brought his helicopter.

This was the only way we could get Evan away from the nearby playground and back to the party.

Flat Stanley came to the party too.

Who needs a ladder when dad's shoulders will do?

My head is just too hot!

Oh! Much better!


 It is always fun to get together with the extended family.
