Snags – April 20th, 2009

Dusting off the BBQ for the first time this year… and quickly realizing how badly we need a new one…and a yard that we can sit in…and an umbrella…and the list goes on and on. How easy it is to push those things out of your mind when the weather is damp and dreary. Suddenly the sun peeks through the clouds for a couple of blissful days, and these things become urgent. How will we survive all summer without garden furniture and play equipment? How did we survive for the last three years?

Sunday – April 19th, 2009

The beginning of spring. Just a few photos from our adventures last Sunday. And when I say adventures I mean lunch, coffee shop and a walk in the sunshine. And when I say last Sunday, I really mean last, last Sunday because I am so far behind in posting. Hope to catch up this week.

Thomas chose the chocolate cookie with extra chocolate. I wholeheartedly approved.

This next photo was taken right before the kids were nearly cleaned up by a car turning against a red light. Kei and I were both too stunned to react at the time, but it was very close. It’s probably a good think Kei didn’t have the chance to “react” on the driver.
