Coloring Easter Eggs

We had a lot of fun coloring eggs this year. You can almost hear Ty saying "Ta-Da" by looking at the picture. I think he broke every egg he touched. It was fun to watch Ben trying to be creative, and it is nice to have Alec coloring independently. I love holidays with children.

My Little Biker Boys

The hand-me-down bike season has started. Ty is so pleased with his little Tricycle. The only problem is he can't reach the petals, but not to worry he still manages to keep up.
Alec is so happy with the new bike he inherited when Ben got his new one. He is a little wobbly, but likes it. I didn't know you could fall with training wheels, but he has proven me wrong.
Here is Ben with is new get up just before we took the training wheels off. He is getting better.

Ben's Birthday

I can hardly believe my little guy is 6. It makes me feel so old, but it is so fun to see him grow and get excited about life. He wanted breakfast food all day for his birthday, so it started with a doughnut stack at his cousins house in Utah, and ended with his Dad's Roll-up Pancakes for dinner with cousins in Idaho.
Ben really wanted a real snake for his birthday, and I let him know from the beginning he would never be old enough to have a snake in my home. He assured me that we could keep it in the garden, but I soon convinced him that wouldn't work and that a big 2-wheeler bike would be better. He was very excited and we tried to teach him to ride it a little before the rain came. We also gave him a few rubber snakes, and hopefully he won't be asking anymore.
Here is my 6 year old with his "Volcano Cake." (April Fools) It doesn't really look like a volcano because the carmel I tried to die red just soaked into the cake, but it was yummy!! Ben seemed satisfied, so I guess that is all that matters.
