April in review

After singing for spring with the kids at church, we woke up to this the next morning. I know it's pretty but enough is enough. Anyway my disgust is justified, this snow killed my tulips.

When the snow finally melted we headed to the zoo with the rest of the twin cities to see the baby animals on the farm. Despite sunny skies and a warm forecast, the wind was bitter cold. Hordes of freezing children in their jackets sans hats and gloves were forced to endure baby animals in the cold by their parents who had already maneuvered the crowds and paid ridiculous zoo admission and were not going home without a picture of their child and a baby chick even though they were also freezing. Good times had by all.

Nick's cousin Brian and family came to visit us for the weekend from Chicago. We spent the weekend watching conference and doing Minnesota things, such as Al's breakfast. Keyton spent the weekend following baby Wesley around giving him hugs, jabbering at him in high pitched baby talk, and otherwise idolizing his every move.

Keyton continues his list of firsts in the month of April: The first time he puts on his monster boots by himself. (Note they are on the wrong foot).

The first hand full of olives, applied all by himself.

The first tower using all 125 legos. Pants optional.

Free-spirited and wise. You have a strong passionate spirit that touches and changes all who know you. The wisdom and common sense that you have is really what guides you through life. Even so, you also have a very playful side that loves adventure and excitement.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

Let me take the chance to neither endorse nor deride ye olde Disney Princesses. If you want to know how I feel about them you'll have to ask in person. I don't think it's appropriate for public consumption on this blog. However, let me say this. If and when we have a daughter PLEASE no Barbie and/or Disney Princess paraphernalia in our house. So if I dislike those d*** princess so much, why take a quiz? Because it's funny. Nick is Belle by the way.
