6 weeks ago. I can’t even remember what happened.
Oh no! I just looked at my pictures folder and there are, like, 6, and they are all of Easter. This is going to be sparse.
We decorated eggs and went easter egg hunting and it was a very lovely sunny day (which is ALWAYS a blessing here in Spokane). Ryan had us on a mean budget and so I didn’t even get to buy new Easter clothes so no Easter Sunday pictures. Here are some the activities we could afford (just kidding, Ryan):
We had playgroup at our house, with a Spring theme and it actually was Spring-ish (note the blossoms), so thank you, Mother Nature, because playgroup is A LOT more fun when you can go outside.
I just texted Ryan, asking for pictures from his phone and this is what he sent:
(he was King Benjamin from the Book of Mormon for a primary activity)
and we went to the Museum of Arts and Culture and looked at their Native American exhibit and their VERY COOL impressionism exhibit. (Can I just say: my kids are superstar museum goers, especially Gabe. They totally listen and go slowly while I explain stuff. I love it. I always feel like an awesome mom when we go.)
After he sent me those two pictures, he texted: “I don’t have much from April”
and I said “Me neither”
and then he replied “Take a picture of a soccer ball, cause that’s all we did.”
Which is true.
Except we also (and by we, I mean, Faith) thought our Sonicare needed airing out and decided to leave it on the front porch for a day or so. That’s worth taking a picture of…
And Gabe continued to swim:
And Emma, Jane and Seth all did after-school running programs (wonder where they get that interest?), but I have no pictures of it, except this one of Gabe and Seth cheering Emma on at her first meet.
And Faith is funny and her favorite thing to do is play “castle”, which is just a more elitist form of house. The BEST is when she plays with Ryan…he lays on the couch and she walks around telling him all of the stuff they are "doing” (“Okay. You be the PrinTH and I am your Printhess and mom is da queen. And we go on our hortheth, with our pretty dretheth. But you don’t wear a dreth, wight dad?) He always has some pretty hilarious additions, but my favorite is how she is completely satisfied with him just lying there while she spins her fantasy world.
So that’s April. The End.
