I think I take too many pictures of the kids. They ask me to take pictures of them with weird stuff all the time.
Nathan wanted his picture taken with a dandelion. I guess it was the first one he found this spring?
Elizabeth wanted her picture taken with a stuffed animal she has had forever.

A local park had a "Dog Easter Egg Hunt" yesterday. Laura came down and we took Pippa. It turns out there weren't eggs to search for. There were just treats all over the ground. Pippa found lots of treats, but wouldn't eat them. They were all-natural and organic so apparently Pippa likes junk food.
Sniffing around for treats.
The kids tried to lead her to some treats.
Nathan pointing out a good spot.
Pippa had no interest in ANY of the dogs until she found TWO other doodles. She sniffed those doodles and conferred with them about something. It was so cute!
Here are 3 doodles. A white one, a Pippa, and a small brownish one.
They talked about something! Maybe they somehow knew they were the same breed?
A nice picture in the park.
Pippa wanted to go swimming in the Columbia River.
Nathan likes to look at wild birds. He said the favorite part of his day wasn't the Easter egg hunt. It was when a seagull flew right over our heads and literally pooped 4 feet away from us into the water. We got VERY lucky. He thought it was the best thing ever and said it was the second time in his life he'd seen a bird poop midair.
A dock picture. It was such a beautiful day! The day before the first day of spring ushered in spring just right.

The second grade performed a musical the other night. It was called "How The Groundhog Stole Valentine's Day. " It was supposed to be performed a month ago, but the teacher had a terrible case of the flu that week so they had to postpone it. Therefore, they did the musical the other night!
In the musical, the groundhog stole a Valentine and caused problems for the children. The second grade sang 5 songs plus the dialogue some of the children spoke. Nathan did not want a speaking part.
I tried to zoom in on him singing.
He smiled right at the camera here! You can see the groundhog in the background in his den.
There was another whole group of second graders on the other side of the stage too but I didn't take pictures of them.
Elizabeth is 8! She is 52 pounds and 4'3" tall. She usually sleeps about 10 hours a night. She doesn't do that weird sleepwal...
Father/Daughter Balls are a big deal around here. We've heard about them for several years and this year Jeremy and Elizabeth decided...
Auntie Laura got the kids Harry Potter clue!
Grandma Pam came to help out and brought Elizabeth's birthday presents! Lots of good painting and rock candy! Thanks Gr...
