Spring, Games & family

Here we have our bunny flag out, I'm so glad the weeping cherry cooperated!

I made this little hatched bunny for my parents, way back in 1989.  My Dad found it in a drawer somewhere in the house.. I wonder what else is hidden that I've forgotten about??

The boys are on Easter break this week, so yesterday afternoon we headed over to Oma & Opa's house to spend some time with them before heading to the lake later in the week.  

 When Nathan was "playing" Monopoly with Oma, she kept landing in jail and he thought it was funny!  To avoid Nathan landing in jail, she suggested that he pray not to get a number that would land him there.  So he did, and God said no at least once!  But you must know, this is also the little boy who reminds us when we haven't said our prayers at dinner. 

Here they are playing a matching memory game, no praying needed for this one.  He was pretty good today considering it was raining heavy at times and we were stuck inside - so much for collecting wood for a fire outside.  Tomorrow is supposed to be nicer with only a 40% chance of rain, so I might be getting some marshmallows yet!

  If you haven't noticed by now, my Dad loves to take pictures!  Even though we grumble, it is always nice to see them later.  We're just missing Paul in this one, he had to stay home to work, but will join us later in the week at the lake.

I don't know which one is the naughtiest of the three, they all have their moments!  But we'll keep 'em, they're cute!

Beautiful family! Yeah, it's a pain to have photos taken but it's worth it to look back at precious moments captured.

I saw this and thought of you - well Nathan actually!
They do some very strange animal babies - baby dressed as skunk is the large boy's favourite!
