a night with the fire!

yesterday night all of us ate outside by a fire.
we had hamburgers, (and of course french fries).
after dinner we all had some fun,
here are some pictures we took...

Bethany was a little scared at first, but she got used to it.

Emma had a good idea about wearing goggles to keep the smoke out of her eyes!

Caitlyn was blowing bubbles.

mom took some pictures of the bubbles.

Bethany was being cute!

we have flowers like this all over our yard!

A by accident picture!

I was so glad it was warm.
we have played outside all day every day!
dad put up a rope swing and we have been playing on it alot!

Happy Easter

This Easter was not very "eventful". No new dresses or ties (I was hoping to make one but didn't get around to it and realized that I had a cute white vest for Ben that looked great). But - we had a great time with friends and ate delicious polish fare. David wrote an Easter hymn for the choir and it was sunny and warm!

We only took a few pictures of the egg coloring. We did a whopping three dozen this year! I thought I had some leftover PAAS but found out there were only 3 pellets of color left. So... we got out the old food coloring. It was great! Do you know that there is even a picture of easter eggs on the front of the box. Why did I never think of using it before?

Bethany got into it....

REALLY into it.

She is ok... it washed off right away and all was well with her....

Especially after she got to eat one!

Hope your Easter was blessed.

April Showers

... Snow showers that is! Not just two weeks ago we were so excited to be out in the above average weather. Now we are in the below average stage. Hopefully there will be some sun for Easter.

These are from Emma. She took them this morning while I ran around trying to get the little ones ready for church. The sun came out this afternoon and it is all gone now. Beautiful while it lasted. I have a friend who says it's like waking up in Narnia.
