After this tirade, the coach decided to bench him.

Science Experiment

Materials: white flowers, colored water, two kids and one mom trying to kill time.

Max giving us his hypothesis.

And then we wait...

The next morning, our flowers had flecks of green, yellow and red.

Pretty cool, huh? Well...not really, but for a 2 year old, it was.

See video below as to how she got to this.

Easter Weekend

We hosted our first family holiday on Saturday with Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts and Uncles and a cute little cousin. After several hours of cleaning up after everyone left Saturday night (I thought it was a good idea to use our fine china for the first time - and quickly regretted that decision after seeing the piles of dishes), we kept Easter Sunday low key by attending an early mass, eating out for breakfast and a family nap afterwards. It was a perfect weekend.

Coloring eggs

Nani told stories of her coloring eggs with onion peels as a little girl.

My little bunny.

Egg hunt.

Max found them all before Leo and Violet made it ouside. We had to rehide a couple!

The Easter Bunny left a couple gifts.

More ninnys!

An Early Visit from the Easter Bunny

Thank you to Memaw and Papa Ober who sent lots of fun gifts from the Easter Bunny this week.

Park Place

It was a gorgeous day outside, which of course meant that both kids thought it would be good to take a 3-hr nap! After they awoke, we headed out for some fun in the sun.

Sticker Man

Grandpa Richard came to visit us yesterday while Nick is out of town for work. And, Max took full advantage of his playmate for the day. Rather than putting his stickers on paper, he's discovered the human body is way more fun.

She Talks...

If only I knew what she was trying to say.

Playing Together

Early morning snuggles.

Violet has been fighting back lately...and they both seem to enjoy it.

Watching a show together - which lasted about 3 seconds.

Scavenger Hunt

Max set out on a scavenger hunt armed with a bucket and pictures of what he was searching for. With little to no plant-life, it was difficult to come up with unique items to find. Luckily, we have four different colors of mulch!

We're Getting There

Temperatures are slowly, but surely warming up. When it rises above 45 degrees (too few and far between), we're out the door!

Army Crawl

This is how Violet gets around these days - Lt. Dan style. 

Daddy's Helper

Over the weekend, Nick did a little work outside while the temperature reached 45 degrees (a heat wave around these parts)! And, Max assisted.

Barely missed his toes.
