Jacob was really enjoying this book the other night so I thought I'd get some video of him "reading" it. Animal sounds alwasy get a laugh out of him and he loved "Old McDonald", of course.
Micah loves getting creative with whatever he can find. Here he decided to shave the chalk off of his chalk sticks using the edge of a plastic Easter egg and then use the shavings to make colorful designs on a paper towel, Where does he come up with this stuff?

Gramma Lynn and Micah play with Mexican "confetti" eggs.
Micah and his granparents enjoy an Easter egg hunt in the backyard.
Here are a few pictures taken during the grandparents' visit. I'm sorry to say we don't have any from Grammy and Pop Pop's visit (Dan had the camera in England while they were visiting) but I'll put some up later if they will share the ones they took with us. This is a busy time for us--Dan has rehearsals for the musical going up next weekend and the end of the school year is nearing. But I will try to keep up with some decent posts!
Well, I know the blog's been on hiatus for quite awhile. We've had several bouts with illness, visit from both sets of grandparents and are just now getting back to regular life, hence the break. We had a great time with Grammy and Pop Pop from Delaware before Easter where we celebrated Grammy's and Daddy's birthdays, visited the Mid-America Science Museum in Hot Springs and just had fun. Then we enjoyed our time with Gramma Lynn and Papa Rog from Wisconsin over Easter. Many Easter egg hunts were completed and Easter baskets were opened :-) Dan safely returned from his trip to England, and although he did get quite an awful virus while there, managed to recover and enjoy parts of that trip. Hopefully, he'll be returning for a longer visit in the next few years. I have included a video of Jacob playing at his favorite new game, knocking down towers of blocks! If I can upload it I will also inlcude one of the boys playing together. I am always worried that Micah, in his brotherly exuberance will get too rough with Jacob. It is probably a good thing that he never was a "tiny" baby and can hold his own quite nicely most of the time. But Jacob just loves a little roughing-up from Micah. I've tried to take a cautious backseat to some of this play just because I know that giant grin on Jacob's face when Micah's playing means he's just fine. Jacob's started packing away the solid food now so I think we're set for another growth spurt. I just hope he's the type of kid who can move to a toddler bed early. Because I don't know how much longer I'll be able to lift him up and over that crib rail! On the plus side, I've got some serious biceps.
