Mommy's attempt at kite flying
Ella's attempt at kite flying...altho, I'm not sure where she's looking...
I remember the day that my Mom, Dad, brother, and I all flew kites. Well, we kind of all flew kites. I distinctly remember picking out the best kite at the store...it was all white with a giant Superman logo on it (sweet). Jeff picked out some sort of swirly, rainbow colored thing (he was a dork even way back in the day) but I digress. We all went out in the back yard to fly the kites. I wanted to get mine up in the air all by myself but Dad wouldn't let me because he kept telling me he had to get it started and up in the air first then he would let me have it. Impatiently, I waited for the perfect moment. My Dad got it up in the air....higher....higher....even higher...(it probably went so high because it was the Superman kite but who am I to say?)....even higher still until I hear "Damn it." My Dad had my Superman kite so high up in the air that he ran out of string and didn't realize that the string wasn't tied to the handle. Up, up, and away went my super sweet Superman kite until I could no longer see it.
We tried to then use my brother's kite but let's face it, it was rainbow and swirly. Please.
Let's fast forward 24 years to the pictures above. I finally got to fly a kite and yes, I did let Ella hold the string after I made sure it was attached to the handle.

Who doesn't enjoy a ride in your little red wagon with some Sesame Street juice, Trader Joe's dried blueberries, and iced animal cookies?
(A special thanks to Jeanne's Mom, Dianne, for watching Natalie while Jeanne and I made a quick pit stop to Trader Joe's on Friday.)
Thank you for schooling me, Young Skywalker.

It was all fun and games until Luke kept trying to eat the bubble wand. Then it was time to stop and play some soccer!

The night before Easter, Ella and Luke had left a plate of pretzels (Luke's contribution) and an apple (Ella's contribution) out on the fireplace for the Easter bunny. As you can see in the picture, the EBunny ate the pretzels and nibbled on the apple. He left them a bunch of good stuff in their Easter baskets to say thanks. If you look closely at Ella's hands, you can see she's wearing one of the presents--Sesame Street rings with all the different characters on them. I had to beg her to just wear three of them and not the SEVEN that she wanted to wear.
