Another Trip to the Trains

Lately it seems like almost every time we get in the car to go somewhere, Maddox asks if we are going to see the trains. We ended up with a free morning and beautiful weather one day a couple of weeks ago, so off we went! There's not much to say about the pictures, but I think I got some pretty good ones of the kids.

 Kelsey loves to ham it up for the pictures, as usual!
O just wants to be in every picture and look adorable. He does a pretty good job, don't you think?

 This girl totally cracks me up!

The kids always love hanging around the statue of the train conductor carved out of wood.

 After the trains come the playground.

I realized I had a couple pictures of the boys coming down the slide and running to H.

She likes to climb the slides from the bottom, and will just stand there is someone is coming down.

At times like these, Maddox doesn't want to pose for the camera anymore. He'd rather play.

Not this guy. He's still oozing cuteness all over the place.

And in case you don't believe me, here's a few more examples:

Spring has Sprung!

Despite the fact that we got snow flurries this past Monday morning, Spring has finally come. With the warmer temperatures, kids have been allowed to go outside barefoot. When I saw H sitting so pretty in the backyard, I couldn't help but grab my camera and take pictures.

 Apparently these little purple weeds flowers are called chickweed. Can you guess why? Yes, the chickens love them. Now, if only I had chickens...

H photo-bombed my picture of Trixie relaxing. From the expression on her face, I don't think Trixie appreciated that...


Kelsey found a caterpillar, of course. She's always finding bugs and critters to study.

Sometimes I am surrounded by so much cuteness I could just explode.

The Difference a Sound Makes

This morning I was on the computer and Maddox was sitting next to me. He looked over at some papers he had strewn about yesterday, and I heard him say, "Ah mah gah."

Surprised, I studied him for a minute to see if he said what I thought he said. Then he repeated it with a minor change. "Ah mah gah-sh!"

Yes, I do nag my kids to stop saying "Oh my gosh." 

(And no, he didn't want his picture taken this morning.)
