3 Year Old

DT had his birthday last month. Lucky boy had cake twice! An ice cream cake with the family and then a tower of cupcakes at his party. Somehow we didn't take too many pictures either day, but everyone had a good time!

(never mind my gigantic arm! just trying to keep the candles lit!)

Mother's Day

The boys gave me some nice presents for Mother's Day.

DT painted this frame and drew a picture of a "silly mommy."

LT had a made a scroll painting and two great cards. This one was especially fun!

The biggest boy gave me a gift certificate for the spa. Woohoo! Now to find time to go there and relax.

Egg Hunt

It's been a busy time for us. Sunday we went to Monterey for our (second) annual egg hunt there, third annual on the beach (Pismo with cousing JT the first time!). Thursday was DT's 3rd birthday. He stood up on the bed that morning and announced, " I am a Giant, Giant boy." And he is. Saturday we had a party for DT to celebrate!

So I can't catch us up with everything at once, but here are some memories from the beach.

Off hunting

A quite satisfied hunter. He has requested that next year his eggs be more hidden as this year was "too easy"

Here is where I announce we are still missing some eggs and we need to hunt some more

But will someone, or something, find them first?

A cautious hunter

Cataloging their spoils

A quite satisfactory family picture. You may see this again in the Christmas card!

We even managed to catch the Easter bunny at lunch. The boys were actually quite enamoured with him, while I was more on the frightened side.

We finished up with a trip to the aquarium. Always something to see there! The octopus is my favorite and put on a nice show this time.

Happy Spring to all!
