This is my simple photo journal. I like to take pictures and once a month or more, I load them onto this blog so that we can remember some of our family highlights.


We are loving this spring weather! Usually, it jumps from chilly to hot, hot. But this year we can really enjoy the outdoors. I am sorry for those that are still bogged down in cold.
My brother and his wife, left for Mexico to do a triathlon. So, we got to have their kids come play. I decided to let my kids skip school, so we could play all day. I wish I had a picture of their faces when I told them. Shock and Awe!

Cole, Summer, and Meg were my entertaining committee. (We had Isaac's play group also over in the morning, so there were a lot of kids).They organized some fun activities including, a water balloon fight, dodge ball, & "Baby Kate" daycare center.
I'm still trying to win over my niece, Kate. She has never cared much for me. I thought this may be my chance to win her over, but no such luck. I just gave her plenty of space and very little eye contact. Oh and a little treat helped me get close enough to change a diaper and clean her face. Although I was disliked by Kate, little Bret balanced all the rejection out with his spontaneous hugs and kind words.
It was a great day.
