A couple of years ago we got Joe a little water table. It’s turned out to be one of his favorite things. The weather has been warm and pleasant, so this week we dusted it off and Joe got straight to work.
For fun, check out the water table blog entry from last June.
Joe got new glasses today. Not a revolution, more of an evolution on his look.
We just got back from North Carolina, where we celebrated Joe’s Papa’s birthday and Easter.
Happy Birthday Papa!
Saturday we went to a friend’s first birthday party and ate a Japanese hibachi dinner (for Papa’s not-so-first birthday). Sunday we ate the best breakfast ever (served every week, by invitation only, at an undisclosed location near a major military base somewhere on the East Coast). Then we hid 18 carefully colored eggs and unleashed the children for 10 minutes of full-contact egg hunt. Later we made deviled eggs with the 17 eggs they found. It was just a neat weekend.
The weekend’s cast. As it’s Easter, Joe is doing a Jesus impression. (Too soon?)
Same spot, completely different vibe. The egg hunt begins, and you’d better get the $%#&! out of Abigail’s way or you’re going to have a bad time.
Joe nabbing one. Picked it out of a bush and put it in the basket himself. No big deal.
Making deviled eggs. (God prefers over easy.)
Papa gets a flaming ice cream surprise for his birthday.
We think this fire was set intentionally.
Mama and Joe say thanks for reading this far!
After a long, draining day, Joe likes to soak all his troubles in the old iron tub. And smile.
Getting ready for the big hunt.
Receiving a safety briefing and instructions from Mama before we begin.
First egg at the ready.
Going for blue.
We flew a kite today. Joe liked it better on the ground.
It was a pretty day, so we went to the playground.
Practicing with the flash tonight. Joe will not sit still. Lola is worse. Lia makes faces. This is my family.
