Easter 2011 at the grandparents

Sam and Jo at the end of the road where I grew up, hoping the horses would make an appearance. They didn't, but we'll see them there soon.
 Granddad reads to Jo and Sam, and they hang on every single word.

 Josephine in the middle of the woods where I spent much of my childhood.
 Josephine deeper in the woods where I grew up, asserting her independence yet again.
 Sam on Granddad's shoulders, being Sam.

Recent pictures from daddy's house

 The yard was filled with daffodils, which Josephine picked to decorate the goal

Crazy horses hanging out together while Sam perches above the terraces

Hockey playing while space man hopes to not get hit 

I so hope he wants to mow the lawn when he's older. I will show him this picture.

He shoots! He scores!

The stair princess will give you passage if you give her ten cookies, preferably ones made of onion.

Our friend Mandi helped us fly a Dora kite we found in a trunk of toys in the basement we didn't know about.
Mandi did a great job, don't you think? 

Ukelele in the trunk of the Volvo. Why not?

Tulip Farm

"Sam, don't open the door to the bathroom when your sister is in there. Leave it closed."

Sam, wailing: "But I LOVE HER!!!"


Sam, the other day: "I don't want pants. PANTS ARE NOT FOR ME!"

Jo, this morning: "Mom, fairies come from the North Pole. Really."
