Toothless Teche

Ethan has lost his two front teeth! One he pulled out at Red Robbin. He had to make sure that the waitress knew he lost it. She brought him a covered dish to keep it in. Then, she brought him and the other kids at the table balloons and sundaes to celebrate! When she asked Ethan if he wanted her to announce it to the other people there he said YES! She yelled and the whole place clapped for him. I must say that if you have to lose a tooth that is the way to do it! Yesterday he lost the other front tooth. The Tooth Fairy has been busy at our house!

Here is a picture of Toothless Teche!

Art Festival

Last week was the Luther Arts Festival! We went and listened to Kellen's class play their recorders. We also got to look at all the art work and do a scavenger hunt!

What Do You Use A Wheelbarrow For?

I don't know about you, but we use it for transportation. We celebrated Easter and the Adults birthdays with April's mom. The boys looked for eggs and baskets and had a blast. Then they got to spend the night with Gamma and Bumpa. Uncle Ben taking Aunt Marie for a ride

An Afternoon At The Zoo

Last week I took the boys to the Henry Vilas Zoo. We had a nice day and with spring break going on it was the perfect day. I think they went just to eat. The minute we got there they said they were hungry and thirsty. We did get to see all of the animals and even had a snack. There are not many pictures because the batteries died in the camera and I forgot the extras. The boys wanted me to take the picture above for Nana

And how Ethan's compare
I have never seen a giraffe play. I got to see it that day. They were so funny to watch. The baby would haul his head back and head butt the bigger one. Then the one we called the Mom would haul her head back and head butt the baby. This went on for quite awhile. The boys thought it was hilarious.

Run The Candy Off

After all the baskets and most of the eggs were found, Papa and April took the boys to the park to run off some of the sugar high that they got. Ethan working the digger

Can You Find The Eggs?

If you can find all the eggs the bunny left you are better than us. We are still four eggs short. The bunny left so many eggs that they were all over! The bunny also left each boy a basket! The bunny was VERY generous this year! The adults were too tired to move when the kids got up. They slept in until 7 in the morning.

We all had a great Easter!

Tank Fun

On Saturday we took the kids to see the tank that is in Fort. The boys climbed all over it. They were pretending that the bad guys were coming and shooting the guns. Kellen on top of the tank

James said that he could see the gas station across the street from up there. I told him that I could see it too from the ground.
Wishful thinking?

Shooting Stick

On Saturday the 4th we went to a surprise party for Patrick. Patrick turned 3o on the 7th. The boys loved playing the video games with all the quarters that we gave them. Jared and I enjoyed sitting at the bar. I really liked drinking free because it was my birthday! Ethan chalking his cue
