Easter Recap

I thought I'd share some pictures from our Easter weekend. I took many pictures at home, but didn't get many at Pam and Gardner's later that day. Here's what I have.
Saturday - it's hard waiting for dad to prepare the egg dye.
Jasper chooses his favorite color to begin. Green!
Joe is pretty sure he can handle this egg business.
These guys are egg dyeing professionals. The eggs in the foreground were painted by Jasper at preschool.

Jasper's Birthday

Jasper turned three on the second. It was extra fun because my parents were in town and Jack's mom had the day off. We parked downtown and took the monorail to the Space Needle. Jasper loves to spot the Space Needle from the car every time we go downtown. This was a big surprise for him.

Daddy made Jasper a 3 pancake.

Jasper wanted to pay for his ticket, but he was free. He paid for Nana instead.

It arrives!

Looking out and down.

When we reached the top of the Space Needle I lifted Jasper up so he could take in the view. He was amazed as he said, "Wow!"

(Joe had a diaper change and a free lunch on top of the needle, what a sneaky guy.)

We sing Happy Birthday to Jasper. He seems to know it's all about him.

Joe turned Four Months Old...a Few Weeks Ago

I am running a bit behind. I took this picture about two weeks ago on the day Joe turned four months old, but I haven't gotten to posting it on the blog until today. Eek! I suppose it didn't help that we went to Joe's four-month pediatric appointment and Jasper's three-year appointment right after this photo was taken. Poor Joe had to have shots and Jasper had a blood draw that determined that he has mono. Luckily mono is much more mild in children then it is in adults. Still, it made for a dramatic day.

Here's a sweet little picture of Joe.

Here's a crazy picture of Joe.

I'll be attempting to catch up with posts in the days ahead.
