Easter

I don't have much in the way of Easter pictures. I'll try to get more. But here is one of the boys sharing their goods:

We had a very nice day. Miles was so excited when he opened his bedroom door in the morning and saw that the Easter Bunny had left him an Easter basket. Jack enjoyed his treats and toys too.

Then we went to my sister's house for lunch, where they got another "basket" (actually a carrot bag, which you can see in the background of the picture) from their grandparents and we had an Easter egg hunt. They really enjoyed the hunt, and we prolonged it by sneaking eggs out of their baskets and rehiding when they weren't looking.

Cruddy week

I am so glad last week is over! Jack came down with stomach flu on Tuesday. Friday night Miles came down with it. Then Saturday morning at breakfast, Jack was very lethargic--to the point of almost falling asleep in his chair--and his lips and fingernails were blue. We called the ped, who said, "Call 911." Next thing we know, we have 5 EMTs in our living room. They took Jack and me to the ER in the ambulance, where we spent the morning doing tests and xrays. He is fine and they have no idea what it was all about.

Luckily, both boys are well again. So far this week is better!

Just because it's a really cool picture

They knocked over a water tower not far from our house, I love this picture that Brian took:

Birthday report

What a week it was! Non-stop partying. We started with joining Miles' preschool class for a birthday celebration and lunch, then dinner out that evening. Plans changed when he expressed a desire to go to Texas Roadhouse. Pretty funny that a 4 year old has opinions on restaurants, I thought. Here is a pic with some of the gifts he received that evening:

The railroad crossing sign/light/bank. He was in awe:

The next night was a celebration at Chuck E. Cheese for Jack. That place gives me a headache!

You know Miles was loving this pink princess carriage:

Then Saturday was the big party at the Denver Firefighter's Museum. It was a smash hit. Twelve kids from Miles' class came and the kids had a blast. After cake and gifts, they all spent almost the entire time on a fire truck that was set up for them to play in. They played HARD. Several, including Miles, cried from exhaustion and over-stimulation when they left! A sign of a good party...
