Moooooore spring snow

Now that we're in June, I think we can finally rule out any more snowstorms (BUT MAYBE NOT). We did have plenty of it in May, though, and what else can you do but play in it and photograph it.

(At one point, I stepped inside and when I came back out, every kid was facedown in the snow, having a cold snack)

Ha, you can't even see the snowman! But its there and it was fun! And what was even more fun was when it all melted the next day. Be gone!

Liam and Dash's seventh birthday

IMG_5003e
Dash and Liam had such a fun birthday! They woke up to a decorated house and came home from school to some balloons!

After a fun dinner at HuHot (where the chefs chanted to them over a giant flame), they got their very poorly decorated (whoops) birthday cake, but whose flavors were to their exact specifications, so at least there's that.


The song!

Lots of fun presents, like board games, Shel Silverstein books, watches...

...Legos, an Uncle Austin coloring book, Snap Circuits, and a microscope. I must also mention that the other kids were impressively chill about their brothers getting presents. They've all been playing with this stuff ever since! Happy birthday!

Hi! I'm Liam! I just turned seven years old!

IMG_4965e
I'm a super smart kid who loves to read and practice math. I love to come up with experiments and projects, generally executing them without need for help. I most enjoy playing with cool Lego sets and Snap Circuits.

IMG_4964e
I love to laugh and be funny. Silly things are my favorite. It's so fun to come up with funny games and have all my siblings play. My brothers and I just finished some swimming lessons and I really enjoy doing the backstroke. Most recently, I've decided to be a chemist. I just love to be me.

Hi! I'm Dash! I just turned seven years old, too!

IMG_4954e
I'm a smarty with an affinity for reading fact books and completing workbooks. I really like the Fly Guy, Magic Treehouse, and Captain Underpants books (Liam, too). Shel Silverstein is pretty fun too. I love to work on projects and do a really good job.

IMG_4957e
I enjoy learning interesting facts and am currently really into the weather (especially tornadoes!). I think I'll either be a meteorologist or a pediatrician. I'm full of giggles and silliness and love sharing it with my family.

Happy birthday boy-os!

Hunting ovoids

Every year the kids get faster and faster when finding eggs, making it less and less likely to get interesting photos. But I try.

Do you like our janky baskets?

IMG_4850e
We haven't cleaned up all the fallen sticks, so there was a lot of careful tip-toeing.

Wren found two eggs and was quite satisfied with her loot.

Twas a happy Easter!
