We signed Blake up for Spring Soccer at the Y, he really likes it, and equally likes the snack and Gatorade break. He's #1.
 Practicing with his Coach

 He started throwing elbows toward the end

Games, Games Games!

We have played CandyLand with Blake for awhile now but he didn't fully get the concept of games until recently and now we play 3 or 4 a night. I love it too.

The Scooby Doo version of Trouble, it's Blake's Favorite

Went to DaRuma's for my Dad's Birthday. All the kids loved it! We take up 2 tables as a family there now. Happy Birthday Dad!

Pirates in the Park

Today was the Pirates in the Park at Cambier Park to benefit the C'Mon Children's Museum being built in Naples. It was a lot bigger than I was expecting. There was so much to do we didn't even get to it all, the only negative was it was like 100 degrees Blake had to abandon the costume half way through and toward the end they closed up early because of rain. 

 They loved the bounce house

  The mermaid when you first came in

 They let everyone make these awesome Sand starfish, first you pick out shells and glass
 Then you push it down into the starfish shape and they pour plaster over it and tell you to come back in 30 minutes. 
 Humongous inflatable obstacle course with a slide at the end
 Shawn playing knock down the pins

 The fake mustache prizes were pretty cute

One of the finished starfish, I can't wait to try this on my own, I think I'll do the kids footprints

This is what was going on before I finished my coffee this morning. They are too funny. They made me do too, I wish I could have got a picture of that. Blake loves to show off what he learned in gymnastics and of course Shawn has to do it too.

 Blake got to go over to his friend Meghan's house today for a playdate, 3 & 4 year olds partying hard on Spring Break.

Spring Break

   There's no school this week because it's spring break. So we 
                had Blakes cousins over to play.
They played zoo/Zookeepers

 Which turned into All the snakes escape and attack!

 Then we painted cups and planted watermelon seeds in them to take home

Happy Easter

 Easter Morning at our house went well. I don't know how, but Blake forgot it was Easter when he woke up. Even though we talked about it right before bed and set out carrots and milk the for the Easter bunny. But that allowed us to let them play in Shawn's room while we got coffee, set up camera, etc.

 They specifically asked for a Scooby Doo and Mickey basket.  The only problem was they are super small and hardly hold anything.

Inhaling Candy

 Trying on their new masks
Tried the new color wonders bubbles from Crayola, seemed like a good idea and they are washable but we all looked like we were bleeding.
Beach Baby

All the boys made their own slide out of sand and floats
 Then they made a pool

 We took a break to go down to the club for their annual Easter egg hunt, it was raining so they were just hiding the eggs when we got there. Shawn and Blake were peeking, and laughing about it.
 With the Easter bunny, they wouldn't look up
                   The metallic eggs had real Sacajawea $1.00 coins, we got a couple, only at the Club, lol.
Playing games
Cousins playing trucks, they are getting along....for the moment

The boys playing football and we are running out of light
