Celebrating Spring

April came to an end, but we had a few more wonderful experiences before it was over. We opened our home to some lovely little guys hoping they would show us some magic.

I never did seem them go from caterpillar to chrysalis, but they sure were cute butterflies in the end.

We had another Natural History class down in Albuquerque. I kept feeling that Logan was not really ready for the discussions held in class, but he sure loved spending time with his Albuquerque buddies. He also discovered that blue jello wasn't so bad after all.

Talking about weather, if I remember correctly.

Learning about different types of clouds. It was probably good Kyle wasn't here for this particular class. He may have had a suggestion or two, or twenty for the teachers afterwards.

Making sure those eggs are being properly taken care of.
That was it for April. Only 4.5 months to catch up on. One small step at a time I guess.

Special surprises fill the middle of April

In April we heard that one of the local elementary schools was hosting a carnival. Logan and I ventured out for a late night and discovered just how much fun a carnival can be. In fact, he has been talking about it ever since. Lucky for us, apparently most of the elementary schools in town host a carnival during the year. In fact, Logan's school is hosting their own carnival this coming weekend.

Frog Toss

Biggest hug ever!

Digging for treasure.

Stomp rockets.

Cake walk

Even if you don't win a cake, you get a cupcake.

Who doesn't love fishing?

Waiting for a balloon animal.

Still waiting, but in the end we got a balloon sword.

We also had a quick, but wonderful visit from Aunt Deneen and Grandma Betty. Logan sure does love these two ladies.

He had just started pushing people on swings.

A few tiny snow piles led to a snowball fight and lots of laughter. Logan and Aunt Deneen vs Dad.

One last picture for tonight. I had told Logan we wouldn't have time for a bath one evening. He disappeared to go paint in his room and came back like this. You can probably guess that we had a bath that night.
