Daddy's Home!

Brad got home last weekend. We had an open house Sunday, so we tried to get everything perfect, and as you can see - Brad had a hard time with a monkey on his back :)

I think maybe Jacks missed him when he was gone!

While Daddy's Away...

Brad is gone again this week in Seattle for work. Jacks and I decided to do something new - go to a movie!

He was in heaven at first...his own Sprite, Dots, and little cup of popcorn!

Jacks did really well - but I'm glad things worked out like I had hoped - we had the whole theater to ourselves. He got a little antsy, but with a little run back and forth down the aisles, he was good-to-go!

When we got back home - Jacks took a tumble and got a HUGE goose egg on his head. Nothing some frozen peas couldn't help! He thought I was crazy for telling him to hold them up there!

We sat outside for almost 2 hours when we got home and read books - but it got cold the darker it got. We wrapped up in "pingy" and finally got to bed around 9:30!

What a great date night!

Jacks insisted Pup needed some water.

When I asked him why, the answer was simple. "Because puppies get thirsty too, Mom". Yes, Jacks...you're right, they do.

Friday Night Fire

Friday night we went to the Newmans' for a fire...we had such a fun time.

I will try to post a video....Jacks hurt his knee somehow on Friday afternoon, and instead of his typically sprint everywhere he went, he was limping all around. We felt so bad for him, but couldn't help but giggle at how funny it looked. He needs those crutches from the Children's Museum!

Who wants it??

So - we officially have our condo back on the market. So - back to making it "showable" every day before we leave for work. For those of you who have been through it, you know how terribly exhausting it can be - especially with a 2 1/2 year old and his little fingerprints! :)
Pray pray pray we can get it sold over the summer. We are aching to move! We get so excited just thinking about it - but we know how it ended last winter, too...so we need to be realistic. I know the right person is going to come around and fall in love with it, so we're thinking positively!

Easter Weekend

We had the best weekend at the farm over Easter....great weather (finally) and lots of time playing outside. I'll start with Easter pictures....OK, mainly because I don't want to change the order and this is how they uploaded...ha!

All of the kiddos ready for church.
Yes, that is a cookie in Jack's hand. Anything to keep him INSIDE and not in the mud before going to church!

This is what Jack calls a "Hove Hug!"

Man, I love these girlies...

My aunt Becky and I. I realized after uploading these that Mom and Dad were already gone when we took the first pictures, and we never got any with them and the kids!

The rest of the weekend: Jess coloring Easter Eggs with the kiddos.

Jacks after "stamping". Keep in mind, we thought this stamp was washable....and this was AFTER washing his hands!

Jacks and Beckers outside...with a balloon...their heaven.

Taking a ride with Grandma Sandy.
I wish every weekend was as nice as this one!

Something random...

So - the other day we were hanging out in the dining room, and Jack said to me "Mom - I HAVE to call Jess". Thinking it was funny, but not totally out of the ordinary, I asked him why? "Because, Mom...I have to show her I can run FAST like THIS!" ....and he continued to run around the "circle" in our place over and over and over and over....

Number one - I'm sure she can't see that over the phone.
Number two - I'm sure she forgot that you love to run. Seriously - has anyone seen him do anything BUT run!?

I'm sure our neighbors downstairs LOVED that one. HA.

Children's Museum

Saturday morning, we ventured off to the Children's Museum. What a perfect place to take Jacks. He could run and play with whatever he wanted - and all we had to do was take his lead.

I have been meaning to take this picture for ages. We always talk about it - and when we were done with lunch, we parked so we could. (Thanks, Angela for the idea!) :)

Birthday (squared)

Last night we celebrated Darcy and Kristin's Birthdays. A great dinner at Bonfire, and a visit to BW3's was perfect.

Oh yeah - and the laughter, I can't forget to mention the laughter. Thanks as always for the great time, girls! (The guys were there too...but you know what they say (ah hem...Joel and Dan) when I bring out my camera! :)
