April showers

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.

Birthday and Easter

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.

We think this fire was set intentionally.
