Mow, Mow, Mow the lawn

Isn't it great when the grass starts to grow and turn green in the springtime. I  love it when people start mowing the lawn and you can smell the fresh cut grass in the air. Because we came from the condo where all our yard care was taken care of for us we don't have all the fun tools that you need to maintain a yard. So, Ben took some money and bought a gaggle of tools so we can. Noah is now mowing the lawn, and he loves it. It is crazy to me how grown up he is. I think that Ben is going to teach him how to use the edger next. Watch out!

Flashback

I am a little late, but here is my flashback to Easter weekend. Here are some pictures of our Easter. We had a great weekend participating in multiple easter egg hunts. We had Easter dinner with my parents and a bunch of cousins. Noahs friend Ethan's mom had an easter egg hunt in their back yard with grass that was at least 12 inches long. I'm pretty sure they will shoot some egg pieces and candy out of their lawn mower when they mow. It was a fun weekend!

The Voice Baby, The Voice

I am a bit of a weirdo but I absolutely LOVE realtiy shows. My latest addiction is the Voice. Over the years I have predicted with great accuracy the winners of many reality shows. So accuratly that Ben says, "if I were a bettin' man I would bet on your predictions." So, just for fun I am going to predict who I think will take it all on "The Voice". I will follow my predicted contestant through the journey of the show and we will see how I/they do. Hopefully in the end coming up a winner. Here is the link to his audition clip for my guy, Javier. He is amazing and I think he will take it all.

Young Astronauts

This year at school Noah joined a group called Young Astronauts. They had lots of afterschool activities and meetings where they learned about NASA, outer space, rockets and stars. They took a few field trips to places like Hill Aerospace Museum, Hansen
Planetarium, and space camp. He really enjoyed it. To end the year they have an awards ceremony and give each student a certificate for completing all the requirements to be a jr. ranger. Then they shoot off the rockets they have been working hard to build. It was really fun.



Here is a video of his rocket launch...

Lunch with Grandma

Is there anything more nostalgic than walking into an Elementary School Cafeteria and being blanketed by the aroma of cafeteria food. I used to love lunch time at school. I usually brought a home lunch, but as a kid I loved to buy school lunch when I could. That may seem strange, but it was a real treat for me. The boys school hosted a Grandparents lunch day a few weeks ago and wanted to post it. Grandma Leta came and ate with us. Thanks for sharing this day in our lives with us.
