Alida Heaven

 In a rare mommy weekend away, Patric made sure to fill the weekend with fun.

 I hear the ladies loved the horses.

 But we knew this about Alida.

 From what I hear, building in the brick pile was more fun than riding to the boys.

And Patric of course made sure to fill the weekend with all hands on deck with grandma and grandpa.

Hard At Work

The time they can spend drawing is amazing.
They have a touch of their dad's talent.

Perfect day.

Two Wheels

For two boys.
Well, that's four wheels.

They took all of no teaching to take off without the training wheels.
Of course, they've been riding so hard on the training wheels, they were nearly bent off anyway.
This slowed them down for an afternoon.

Our First Real Spring Break

 Cousins visiting

 Twinkies before bed, while sitting on the counter.

And Grandma Montana, all the way in Texas.

A Good Time was had by all.

I Was Up Anyway

I didn't need to sleep in on a Saturday. 
I wouldn't know how.

The Natural History Museum

Where we took our journal to make lists of the things we saw.
While the other three ran in more typical fashion from window to window as fast as they could.

Photo Shoots

This would be more realistic, than the ususal posed group of four pics we flash up here.

Still staged really, just much more accurate in their staging.

Even when one tries to smile nice....

Can I?

Mom, can I/we/the whole gang of us, go to the neighbor's?

In this case, I think they didn't even bother to ask and just showed up at their door.
Note Ben's possessed look.  He is about to throw a fit over being told to get out.

First Sleepover

The plan: Get a sitter for the kids.
Have all of the adults run to another house where it is quiet.

Go back to pick them up later, and have our wonderful neighbor say we should just let them be.

Total kids knocked out in one room--six ages 4-6.

When the Power's Out

 We head out.

Everyone wins. 
Until it happens in August when the temp is back over 100 degrees.

Such concentration.
To hear from the school, he is incapable of such feats.

Freshly Cut Pineapple

Who knew such happiness was buried in there.
