10 on 10 > April

Cold, gray and rainy.  This has been the pattern for the last few weeks and it’s far from inspring.   This time last year we were wearing shorts, bike riding and going for nice long walks in the evening after work.  My boys keep asking when summer is going to get here and I have finally stopped staying ‘soon’.

I bought the boys some bubble guns on Easter so my mom came by and we sat out on our front porch while they went to town with their guns.  The batteries died on one of them quickly and of course I couldn’t find more so they had to share (that always turns out well).


The boys hadn’t opened up some loot bags they brought home from a party this past weekend so they got into those.  As you can see, chocolate was found in abundance.  Zach had a large purple foam foot in his and I still have no clue what the point of it is.  The pouty face on Connor was caused by Zach temporarily refusing to share the foot with him.  FOR THE RECORD, it was NOT me that got these terrible haircuts for them!


And for anyone reading this, sorry for the over share but I had to get some shots of this to hold over my heads some later in life.  These are his two hiding spots…for what you ask?  Well lets just say he’s not fully potty trained yet and makes me put a diaper on him for these moments.


And just to add a little colour to a blah day, here are a couple of shots from my daily walk with the dog:

    It rained on the 10th for you too? Well, these are great shots…bubble guns are the best (wish they were the only guns in the world…LOL). I love the color shots too…and such a sweet doggie you have!

    I can’t get over how much your little boys have grown! I love your shots of them (and I loved your youngest’s hiding spots- haha!!). I also love the last 2 color shots – especially the one of your dog. The colors are gorgeous.
