5 yards of mulch

 Israel spent hours digging in it.
 Keira climbed the mulch pile and sat in it and  stained her clothes black
 Mike spent 2 weekends edging flower beds and applying new mulch.

I realize all our flower beds look a bit bare and colorless. We are slowly getting rid of all the old bushes and slowly replacing them with new stuff but plants get expensive so its a  add a few bushes every year type of deal.

April 2012

Gorgeous weather, unstructured outdoor playtime ALL DAY LONG. Ahhhh childhood! "o) Nairi thinks she is funny when sticks her tongue out.
More tongue
We paint walls with tooth brushes around here.
Happy girl
"Have you seen my tongue?"
"What is Israel doing?"
"I own the playhouse!"
We like to think we own the street
"Hear me roar!"

Israel shows some tongue- its his concentration face!
This kid is going to be sucking her thumb in high school
My favorite tongue pic!

Outside pics/ Easter prep

We only make homemade cinnamon rolls once a year- for Easter breakfast! Mike is doing the filling between the "rolls" here with butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and a little cloves and nutmeg. They are so delicious!!!
Nairi excitedly showing me the mulch in her hands. The girl is obsessed with mulch.first mow of the spring!
New glasses. I knew turning 30 was bad. My eyes are getting worse and I found my first gray hair! Yikes!
