Rollie pollies.

Ahh, spring! Butterflies, lady bugs, and...rollie pollies! We kill pick up at least 15-20 rollie pollies a day! We are working on being very gentle with bugs...they are getting better slowly but surely.

Hoe Down

There was a Hoe Down at Finley and Zane's school last week and we sure had fun! There was a petting zoo from which there are zero pics because a certain little girl was holding on to mommy for dear life! Zane enjoyed the animals and I was hoping Finley would follow suit but no such luck! We had fun anyway! We enjoyed some BBQ and visited with teachers and friends!

With one of their awesome teachers! 


The Easter bunny left presents for Finley and Zane at GG's house, too! That Bunny is very generous and brought them scooters! There is a little boy in our neighborhood that rides his scooter up and down our street and F and Z are fascinated by it.  Watching him has paid off because as soon as we tried to push Finley around on it she said "No, Daddy.  Want to do it like Ben!" And she did.  My oh my!!  

Zane caught on too and now they are scootin' around our backyard on a daily basis! And they love their helmets too...can't you tell!!

Easter Sunday 2012

We enjoyed a nice quiet morning just the 4 of us (and Tank and Vader, of course) on Easter Sunday.  The  Easter Bunny stopped by and left some little gifts and sweet treats for Finley and Zane.  You know what they both zeroed in on...the sweet treats.  So after a nutritious jelly bean and chocolate egg breakfast we headed outside to find the eggs that the Easter Bunny hid.  At first they wanted to open every egg but with a little encouragement they caught on and were running to find all the eggs.  At this age, it is so fun to see their excitement.

A little bit later we had everyone over for a yummy Easter brunch and a little "Ring Around the rosie" in the front yard!

Easter weekend...

We had lots of fun last weekend and enjoyed spending time with family.  It is always fun having cousins and grandparents around!

We dyed easter eggs, too! It was Finley and Zane's first time!

Zane was as interested as the others!

Thank you Aunt Sarah for the Easter fun!

Chef Papa Tank was helping in the kitchen!!
