... yesterday, April 19th.
~ Waking up with a three year old in your bed could be a bad start to a day; but not when said three year old says, "Mommy, I love you so much!"
~ Hanging a seventh month old upside down will often cure him of crying.
~ It is fun to let a three year old dress himself: sweatshirt on backwards, pants that hit above the ankle, sandals on the wrong feet.
~ When on a walk with mom, every rock, stick and piece of trash is treasure to grab. Then when mom only lets you keep one thing it is really hard to decide if you should keep the one in your hand or grab the new treasure you found.
~ Dog food, when placed in the water dish, will swell to a disgustingly huge size.
~ I was informed that "Boys have penis, Girls no have penis."
~ It is wonderful to watch big sister and baby brother bonding as she is feeding him dinner - sheer bliss for both of them (myself as well).
~ Where does the food go? Baby ate huge dinner of sweet potatoes with rice cereal, three year old ate two eggs and two waffles, and eight year old ate two eggs and four waffles. It must be the hallow legs.
~ An eight year old will hold onto the day as long as she can. Evidenced by still having her light on at 10:00 PM.
~ The bed is not very warm when there is no husband in it.

We went camping over the weekend to Devil's Lake State Park. This was our first trip out this year and our first trip in the camper. It was only about 30 minutes away, but things seemed to go pretty well. We took a couple of walks Saturday and the kids played a lot at the playground there. Angela and Connor stayed on the table bed and it worked out really well. Especially since we wore them out before bed. Emeric had a snug little spot next to our bed.
Once we got home we had to repack it for Brian to head out of town for work.

Friday, Brian got to "play" with his birthday present a few weeks early. He got a 2002 Yamaha Roadstar Warrior. The picture does not do justice to how excited he is to be getting out on the road and riding. Now we need to get a sitter so that he and I can go and ride together. For now he will just have to settle taking some rides on his own.

Here are the March photos of the kids. Slightly late, but here none the less. Enjoy!
Oh my gosh - what a set of exercise balls will do to my daughter!
Having some fun in the exersaucer.
What a good big sister Angela is reading to her brothers.
A rainbow cupcake with cloud frosting that the kids got to enjoy on St. Patrick's Day.
