Farm Fun

Last week Grandma and Uncle Dan took Pauline (visiting during her spring break) and Trevor out to the Mason family farm in Pickerington. Trevor LOVED the farm. He saw cows, a horse, lots of chickens, cats and dogs. He ate the apples I sent along to feed the horse, but whatever. They brought home a basket full of fresh farm eggs, which Trevor helped collect in the chicken coop. He loved eating his farm eggs.

The next day he demanded that we go back to the farm. Lauren was bummed to miss the fun, but she was in school. We'll have to return again soon.

Roof People



Today was a great day for yard work. We needed to fix a gutter, then clean them out, and Lauren wanted to come up. She was very brave.

Bike/Car/Whatever you call that Thing




Hey, I'm on a roll, so I'm posting some pictures from the "blog downtime" archives. It's my blog, I'll go out of order if I feel like it!

No explanation needed.

They Might Be Giants


Sunday afternoon, the whole fam damily went to the Riffe Center to see They Might Be Giants, who were in town to do a kid's show. For those of you who don't know, TMBG are like the greatest kid's band ever. They've got 4 great albums, we love them, etc etc etc. I am posting this video because it's perfect. No matter how many times we've listened to these albums, and despite the fact that we can sing ALL THE WORDS (no lie), the kids still found the confetti the best part of the show. Ask any kid in the front section 10 years from now what they remember about this concert, and it will be the confetti. I swear Trevor spent the half the show in the aisle, on the floor, picking up little pieces of paper. Good times.

Also up for the show was the Macbensen family. I caught this good pic of Noah and Nina:

Spring: It's here.

Beth has been working really hard for a big deadline this week, but she got away for an hour to play soccer and swing with the kids today. It was nearly perfect outside during that hour. I'm no meteorologist, but I'm ready to call this spring!


The kid playhouse complex was rediscovered, and as Trevor looked at home in his little house again, Lauren reclaimed her rightful position on top of everything.



Also happy with the coming of spring was this poor doll, who seems to have been left outside for the winter. Who could see her with all that snow?

Train!


Finally! We came back one week later, and success!

Item Exchange


We brought Sarah her Girl Scout cookies, and she gave the kids some presents. She said that today would have been her Bob's birthday, so she wanted to give presents to someone, and she had little gift bags for all the neighborhood kids. What a sweetheart.

Best Trevor Ever

waitin' on a train

After we dropped off sissy at school this morning, Trevor and I thought it would be a good idea to hang out at the Weber and 71 RR tracks to see a choo-choo close up. 15 minutes later, no trains yet...

post script: 45 minutes and no trains. blerg.
