I am a little late in posting, but we did have a nice Easter. I loved seeing all the posts about your Easter weekend. Especially the kiddos all dressed up in their Easter best. So cute! We never did get around to dying eggs......I didn't really want to start at 8:30 Saturday night. So we skipped it and just had plastic eggs. At church the primary children got up and did a musical number. O-dog even went up, (stood still) and sang! We had our Easter Egg hunt after church and took a few photos, none of which turned out that great. Oh well!

Spring Break is here and I thought I would share what we've been doing. Monday morning I decided I couldn't wait any longer to give the boys haircuts. O-Dog always cries, he hates it! When I was trimming around his ears he turned his head a bit and I shaved a little too much. Oops! Hopefully is grows out a little before I get their pictures taken this week.
After our walk we drove over to the park by the Folsom Zoo and met our friends for a picnic lunch. We played at the park, rode the train and went to explore the new Folsom Library. Wow, it was soooo nice. They even had a fireplace in the reading room!
Here are some pics from the park and train:
The big boys are too cool to sit with their moms!
Our friends! Thanks for meeting us, we had fun!

When one decides to become an artiste, he needs to decide what medium he would like to create with. It may be charcoal, paint, fabric, pencil, crayons... etc. Our Artiste has decided upon red paint.
Next one must choose the tools to use. There are many tools available for painting, such as sponges, rollers, brushes, scrapers, and various other items. Our artiste has chosen a somewhat unconventional tool, but hey it works!
Possibly the most important thing for an artiste is choosing the canvas on which to create. Our Artiste first tried wood, but decided it was too small.
He then moved on to concrete, but after extensive research decided it was too rough.
The door seemed like the best choice. It was perfectly smooth and just the right size.
In conclusion, an artiste needs to choose his medium, choose his tool, and finally choose his canvas.
Oh yeah, and don't leave an open can of paint out where a little artiste might find it!

Remember that time when Britney was carrying her son and tripped and almost dropped her son? (This was before her kids were taken from her and the nightly news followed all her mama drama.) I would just like to say that I defended what happened. If a camera crew followed me around 24-7 waiting for me to do something stupid or make a mistake then, of course they would "catch me". So with that said, I will tell you what happened Friday afternoon.
We had just gotten home from picking up Big D from school and I thought I would let Miss P and O-Dog play in the backyard for a while before their nap. After a minute, the doorbell rang, Big D answered the door and it was O-dog. He said Miss P was running away. I looked in the direction he was pointing and she was 2 houses down the sidewalk! I ran after her, all the while she's squealing with delight and running away. I gathered her up and took them inside. Apparently, O-dog had gotten a chair and stood up on it next to the gate and opened it up. I told him not to do that, it's dangerous, blah...blah...blah...and let them go back to playing in the backyard. I sat down to look at Big D's report card. Not 2 minutes later the doorbell rang again. I realized what was happening and ran to the door. It's O-dog. My eyes scanned the sidewalk both ways....no Miss P.....scanned to the right again.....about 10 houses down I caught a flash of pink scurrying down the sidewalk. I actually thought to myself, "wow, at least she stayed on the sidewalk"! If you know anything about my kids, you would know that they are fast runners! We ran down and got her, but in the meantime some of the neighbors had seen the situation unfolding and began to gather. A lady in a car pulled up to Big-D, who got to Miss P first and said that she almost got hit by a car! Another lady pushing a stroller with 3 kids told me the same thing. I think I mumbled something about her little brother and the gate and thanks for your concern and booked it back home! I promptly went into the house and put them down for their naps.
Funny thing is, I wasn't all that embarrassed. Yes, of course I was a little, but I was more grateful she was okay. Even as I write this, I have so many feelings and thoughts running through my mind. As crazy as it seems, I even have to laugh a little at the thought of Miss P squealing with delight as we ran to catch her.
So say what you will about me. I know I am not perfect. Just wait until the day when you get "caught" in your Britney Spears moment.
