Summer visit from Josh and Kristin

Okay... So- I really think God was showing off when he created this creature. This peacock put on quite a show for us and was so beautiful. Definitely My favorite today.
The end of a long morning. Halle had enough. But the rest of the fam was happy to pose. Here Ellie gazes at a Orangutan.

Ethan (Peanut Butter Jelly smile) and baby gorilla.

Summer stuff

Summer Fun!!!

Summer is here (pretty much). Last night we slept with our windows open. -I love that about Colorado. The days are warm (what you Texans would call cool ) and breezy and night cool. -Perfect. So, here is the beginning of my Garden for this summer.. You can see my Strawberries doing great along the fence. The dirt is where I've planted seeds... Waiting for later harvest.

Daddy's girl.

There have been some requests for more pictures of Sasha. .....

Sand Box Project

We decided to start a new project yesterday. We got some free rock from an obliging neighbor. So we rented this machine to scoop, gather and transport all of the tons of rocks to our front yard. Then I got to shovel and rake rocks for hours. So fun. But when we are finally done with new and improved side yard/ sand box/ rock garden it will all have been worth it. Here are some pics of Rich in action on his rented sand toy.
OH, doesn't my girl look so sweet! This her favorite new dress ( I got at a garage sale this weekend for 33 cents)
And what kid doesn't love shucking corn? This was in preparation of our little dinner party Friday night.

Ethan's Pre-School Spring Program

Well, it was a smash. Ethan did so great. We are so proud of him this time. He actually participated and sang and did the motions. Of course he knew that we were going out for Ice Cream afterwards. Who wouldn't sing their heart out for some ice cream? His little buddy Ava got a little nervous, as you can see. Here is one of E really getting into it . Unfortunatly this camera didn't capture great pics(bad lighting and we were too far away), but I did take some with the good ol' 35 mm too.
Ellie just loved getting a night out on the town and seeing so many kids.
Okay now this little video was taken with R's Blackberry so the quality is very poor. Mostly I'm putting this on here for Grandma, Paboo ,Mimi and Pappa to see. If you do watch, Ethan is front and center with a green shirt and jeans. A girl in a black dress is to the right of him. Enjoy!

May Day celebrations

I had a wonderful Birthday this year. I got to celebrate with friends Friday night. We went to a fantastic little Greek restaurant . And of course the kids had to have "Birthday cake" (the kids, not me).. So this year we went with the Cookie Cake - a childhood favorite of mine. It was a big hit with the 2 E's.
Saturday, was a cold rainey day here in Colroado Springs.. But that didn't stop us from enjoying some great Tex-mex. Richard found a new favorite.
