Mama is simultaneously thrilled and saddened by this one. Jacob is all thrilled, :)
Our First Outdoor Lunch of the Season
Because everything is better when you can eat outside!
A Zoo Trip
Carter refused to take off his sunglasses that day, even indoors. He wasn't so sure about the meerkat, either.
The Return of Shadow's Little Friends
And by "little friends," I mean her arch nemesis, the bunnies, whom she follows all around the backyard, moving from window to window. Quite the hunter she is. (Except she would have no idea what to do if she caught one!)
Celebrating an Early Easter
The kids were choosing some treats with Grandma!
Lunch at Giant City Lodge
It was a fun time, but it would have been more fun if a certain two-year old wasn't acting like a... well, like a two-year old. (As I was typing this, he looked at the picture, gave me a big smile and said, "I know that day. I wasn't behavin'!)
A Little Shirtless Guitar-Playing
(In his Paw Patrol pj bottoms, no less!))
Laughing at My Sad-Faced Shark
So this headband with a shark fin came in a kids meal, and Frank put it on Carter. Apparently, he didn't want it on because his bottom lip came out in his trademark "sad face." He does "sad face" when he wants sympathy. Poor little shark...
Beautiful, Chilly Sunsets
I can't wait to see the first shoots of green corn popping up in that field. I love the fall here, but I love the spring, too.
Random Acts of Kindness
I went to college with a girl named Amber, who passed away a few months ago from triple-negative breast cancer. Her husband maintains a Facebook site where people are encouraged to do random acts of kindness in her memory. April 1 would have been her birthday, so on that day, the kids and I filled treat bags with balloons, along with a tag explaining Amber's website, and passed them out to the kids in our neighborhood.
