What A Deal

There are not many things that cost the same today as they did when his Dad was this age.  But the horse at the grocery store is still just a penny!

Easter 2019

Easter was supposed to be rainy and cloudy, but the rain held off until afternoon.  The morning was sunny and warm.  The boys hunted eggs after church.

Somehow I didn't get a picture of Trevin, but as usual he ended up with the most eggs.  

We had 15 people for our hunt at home and lunch.  Family and friends - a great way to spend Easter.

 Gavin hasn't shown the competitive nature of his Mom, Dad and siblings at hunting the eggs.  Here he is getting a little help from Janice.
 Trevin in a blur as he rushes by to find his eggs and basket.

 He looks a little guilty here.  Could he be finding more than his share or perhaps the easy ones left on the floor for the little one?

 He is observing everyone running around and wondering what is going on.

 Auntie Carrie just found her "basket".  
 Gary, John and Vivien searching.

In a most unusual turn of events, Kaiden was the last to find his basket.

So I Don't Forget

He is getting so big and is talking so much.  I wish I could slow time down just a little.  He loves to play legos, he loves to read books (over and over again), he is obsessed with trucks.  Especially dump-it trucks.  Not dump trucks, that is something entirely different.  Dump-it trucks comes to taka my trash.  (He sounds Italian when he says that).  The trucks come on Friday and picks up the trash and dumps it.  As he explains this, he lifts his arms up in the air and tosses them over his head.

He loves to go to the park.  He has graduated to the big swing and loves to climb and go down the park.  It is a battle to get him to leave.

He loves tomato soup (soup good) and I think he would eat it every day unless there were tacos!  

I love the way he says deeelicous.

A couple of weeks ago he was at our house with his Dad.  I have a basket on the table in front filled with plastic Easter eggs.  I heard the doorbell ring (another thing he likes to do) and answered it.  He was standing there with the basket and yelled Trick or Treat.  

The other day I was going to get something out of the pantry and he told me not to go it was dangerous. 

As are his brothers he is a comedian.  He will offer you a bite of something and at the last minute put it into his mouth.  He jumps on your chair or spot on the couch as soon as you get up and yells Got your spot.

Spring Break

Spring Break was a month ago.  The time just keeps slipping away from me.  The first day I went to watch the boys they asked if they could go to the museum.  It was going to be a mild day so we packed a picnic lunch and went.

The children's discovery zone is always fun especially the water.  Gavin was so wet when we left.
We went to the Hero Dog Imax show.  The boys are wearing their 3-D glasses.

We were given a scavenger hunt sheet to find all the gnomes at the museum.  Most of them are painted into the background of the animal dioramas but there are a few statues as well.  We found all of them and even a bonus Yoda that we were told about.  The boys had such fun searching for them.
We always have to visit the mastodon outside.
We then had our picnic.  They want to come back in the summer so they can run through the water fountain
