Best St. Patrick's Day Ever

St. Patty's Day was 79 degrees for us, so we decided to go spend some time at the park. We were enjoying the beautiful weather (Q was on Spring Break) and Darren was planning on meeting us for lunch. He surprised us and pulled up on the motorcycle with his shorts and tennis bag on. One of his meetings got changed to the morning, so he had taken the rest of the afternoon off! He was able to play with the boys at the park and then we got some subway sandwiches and went to the tennis courts and had a little picnic lunch and played tennis as a family. We all got sunburned, but it was fun to feel the warmth of the sun again. We came home and got the motorbike out and rode around the house on it and the boys played soccer. It was a very good day, one that we'll remember for a long time. Thanks Darren!

"Hey Dad, watch me climb!"

"Are you still watchin'?"

(Darren runs off to play with Quincy)

"Yay, I did it Dad! Did you see me?!"

"Where'd he go?"


Goin' Fishin'

Here's a little fishing adventure we took as a family a few weeks ago. Thankfully we have a little pond only 2 miles from our house, so we didn't have to go far. The boys loved it and I'm sure we'll have to do more of this as it gets warmer.

The Faker

We have a little actor in our Stratty man. Either that or he's just really, really lazy. He wallows on the ground and says, "I caaaant get up . . . Help meeeeeee." Then if we ignore him (as we usually do) he finally pulls himself up to his feet, when it's clear that he's got plenty of energy. Here's the sequence below . . .
