Late Winter and Early Spring

Albert is just feeding his monkey.
He definitely was planing on trying to ride the bee on top of the card table. When I came around the corner, he stopped and gave me this smile.  I'm going to have to keep my eye on this one.
Sad boy.
Cousins, being cousinly.
Not so fussy.
Lego and juice...can life get better?!
Helping out at the church work day.
Just a dragon in our kitchen.
But check out his shoes!

Asher's Birthday

Yesterday Asher turned 6! He got to help me make the cupcakes to celebrate with his kindergarten class.  He was pretty jazzed about licking the spoon.
His birthday started with a very nutritious bowl of special cereal.  He chose a mix of Trix and Lucky Charms.  
And then he got to open one gift before school.
Silly, happy Asher face.
Everyone enjoyed his special cereal selections.
He went to school, soccer practice, and then returned home.  Just before dinner he got to open the rest of his gifts.
Everyone was interested in this card.
Hey, look!  A swim towel with swim trunks and the promise of swimming lessons.  Pretty exciting!
Now for that bigger present over there.
Sounding it out.
And some Star Wars books.  He's already worked his way through this one.
Then it was time for his chosen dinner.  He picked burgers and sweet potato fries.  Good choice, kid!
Literally licking his plate.  His finished his special day watching Disney Planes with his two sick brothers while the rest of us attended our Maundy Thursday service.  He seemed to enjoy the day from beginning to end. Yay!
