April Pictures

This spring has been beautiful! We have spent a lot of time outdoors on projects, exploring and playing.  We (mostly Eva and I) painted a peace pole for our garden... It now has a lovely home next to our Oak Leaf Hydrangea.  
 This is our "snake pit" in the playscape in our woods.
 This is Eva with her favorite spring flower, the Hellebore.
 Ian's favorite stump in the woods.  He is just so happy when he sits on it!!!
 Riding his "fast bike" in his PJs.
 This is how boots end up at our house- faded and torn up!  Owen got some new ones :)
 Poppy gave Owen this antler he found while mowing!  It's a big one!  He has the paper towel in his mouth because his tooth was about to fall out.
  Missing his two front teeth!  And posing with the scene he has built.  He found a good spot for the antler but the dog keeps taking it away to chew on it, so he had to find a new spot!
 Close up on his logging truck and tree farm.
 The craziest bunny you'll ever see!
 Some new gravel for the driveway.
 That's why we got the new gravel... so they could test the off road capabilities of the Gator!
 Peaceful times watching the fish off the dock at Grandma and Poppy's.
 Eva and Owen thought it would be funny to dress up Monty like a king and have him write with his paw.
 Dreams do come true... Owen is giddy over his new, real cash register from Aunt Heather.  He plans to use it in his donut, pretzel, pizza and ice cream shop one day.
 A Rhoad's ball machine our Pediatrician's office.  We could stand there and watch for days.
 Sponge painting some buildings.
 Owen is in the zone.  Measuring, lining things up and assembly lines are things he really enjoys right now.
 A test batch of pretzel bites for his shop.  They turned out beautifully!
