April Pictures

We are so busy and the kids are keeping us on our toes!  Here are some fun pictures from April...

Today we are getting hair cuts, so Dad worked extra hard to get nice pictures of the boys and their lovely hair before their summer cuts ;-)

Grandma came to visit giving Mom and Dad a welcome break and making the grandkids very happy.
 This past weekend we had a ton of rain...the kids really enjoyed splashing around and building dams.

They worked together nicely...something that occasionally happens ;-)

Spring Break Second Half

For the second half of Spring Break we traveled up to the lake house.  Grandma Fern and Grandma Cathy visited with us.  The two grandma's played scrabbled with Bjorn.  Bjorn helped Grandma Fern keep score.  We are very impressed that he can add multiple numbers into the 20's!  When did he learn that!?!?

 We spent a day on the land.  It had been a while since being there and the paths needed a lot of clearning, but we still enjoyed our time.

 The last evening was spent playing scrabble again.

Spring Break

This year for Spring Break Mom and Dad planned a super exciting 3 night stay at the Great Wolf Lodge (a waterpark "resort").  We are enjoying a very fun water park with many slides and lots of fun water activities.  Also miniature golf, an arcade and some fun magic sprinkled throughout the lodge.

Kristen, Craig, Ben and Max are here with us too.

Kids enjoyed the wave pool, super fun water slides and of course, each other!

Athletic Endeavors

Recently the boys ran a 1 mile trail run with Mom (Mom also ran a 7.2 mile trail run--in celebration of her 41st birthday).  Mom and Bjorn ran together.

Odin took off and placed 2nd in the group!

And then died later.
 Bjorn has started to excel at Taekwondo.  He participated in a tournament and placed 2nd in his age group.

Bjorn lost his first tooth

Bjorn lost his first tooth yesterday.  He was so excited to tell us about it!  He anxiously went to bed wondering what the tooth fairy was going to bring him...he woke up happy bc she left him a bill.  At 5:30 am he got out of bed to turn on the light to see what KIND of bill she left was a $2.

Both boys are so handsome and growing so fast...

A bit of snow for GA

We got a light dusting of snow and the kids were over-the-moon about it!
