Backyard Garden

We're trying to get James to eat more solid foods and nurse less.

After a lot of work, Kendra and Kyle got the backyard cleared of roots and weeds and installed sprinklers.

Time to get some grass in here.

Much better!  We also ordered the table and chairs for the backyard.

Our lettuce is getting big.

And the peaches are ripening.

More David Austin roses planted in the backyard.

Hailey has been pointing out ads for Shen Yun to us for the past month or two, not knowing that we actually bought tickets for her and Steve.

All dressed up and ready to go.

They came back and told us how amazing it was.

James didn't get to go.  He cried when they left without letting him follow them outside.

Play Time

Time to change out the grey slipcovers for the white ones.

Playing together in the sandbox.

James wants someone to play with him all the time.

I had to put James in the hamper so he would stop throwing our clean laundry all over the floor.

Our neighbor brought over this power wheel car for James.

Evan can't leave it alone and insists on riding with his brother.

Thanks for coming over for story time, Kendra!

This is what my flowers looked like a few weeks ago. Some of my pots have just started to bloom.

 He can barely get his foot up, but insists on climbing the bunk bed ladder.

Happy Easter!

New Legos were waiting for the kids when they got up this morning.

Wearing her new Danish dress for Easter.


Had to change out of Church clothes when we went to the McClellan's for our Easter egg hunt.

Papa was pretty tricky when hiding some of those eggs.

Others were pretty easy to spot.

James liked throwing his around the yard.


Did you see that one hiding in there?

This bunny sings and dances.

Oh! Birthday toys!

Playing piano with Papa.

James wants to try too.

More Lego building.

Now time for birthday cake!  For Sean and James.
