The last of the spring break pictures

A cool car that I happened to get behind. As we all know, supporting the troops is near and dear to my heart.

While visiting Phil the last weekend of break we got snow on the first day of spring! What the heck!

The boys doing what boys do best.

We took Matthew for the first time to Chuckie Cheese.

Riding a horse. He liked the rides, but the games were a little beyond him yet.

Doing military chin-ups. We went to a military event the guys held. I should have taken a picture of the Army Hummer. It's pretty cool. While we were there a lady and her son came by. She said the reason they stopped was because her 9 yr old son was a huge fan of the Army and wanted to enlist at 18 to be a snipper. She said at every birthday they celebrate it's only so many more yrs till he can join. The son was in heaven to receive so much cool stuff. I thought it was cool how calmly the lady accepted her young son's decision.

Get a ball...

It's good! Matthew would have played basketball all day if I would have let him. He absolutely adores it.

Elite 8!

Thursday, on the day of our teams Sweet 16 game, we declared it K-State day at daycare. All but one family is big fans, so here is most of the kiddos showing their Purple Pride. It's times like these that I wish we had a girl, because the cheerleader outfits are so cute. We barely won that nail biting game and have moved to the Elite 8. Crossing fingers we win! We haven't made it this far since '51. Go K-State!

More spring break pictures

The Grandparents and I took Matthew to the park one day over Spring Break and he LOVED it! Going to the park with Grandparents are the best!

Another day over break Mom came and spent the day playing with Matthew will I worked on spring cleaning. I got a far amount done and Matthew and his Mamaw did alot of building.

He was so proud it was taller then his head!

What should we do now?

Here's the picture I took of all the stuff sleeping with the boy the night he got up and announced he was a hungry boy.

Now my son will also crouch down and look for emerging flowers.

One of my old college friends came in from back east. Matthew and I went to the park with her and her two sister, her daughter and niece. Here is Matthew, Lacey, Gracie, and Jodie.

Here is Missy with Matthew hiding Emma in the back. We had alot of fun, even though it was rather chilly. Matthew had a good time showing off his skills.

We'll be back soon, showing off more pictures of stuff we did over Spring Break!

Matthew never fails to find something interesting to do.

What a goof ball!

I am so annoyed! I spent an hour uploading alot of photos taken over break only to have Blogger refuse to publish it because it had a Meta that it didn't like! Like I know what a Meta is and how to fix it. They even showed me the string of computer gibberish that it had beef with, that only a computer tech would understand. So I finally caved after another 15 mins and deleted the whole thing. I did everything exactly like I always do, so either the site messed up, or it dislikes one of my photos, which would be weirder yet. That's all I can come up with since I don't wrote computer codes. So tonight all anyone gets are the first 2 pics of spring break. I'm not uploading 10 to 15 again, just to go through the same "Meta" situation!

All I'd like to say at this time is: How about those Cats! Sorry Rock Chalk Chickenhawks... (and Auntie :) )

It's late

It's late, I was just preparing to go to bed, when I heard the noise no parent wants to hear. Booohoooohoooo, sniffle, sniffle, wail. I get up and go to Matthew's room to hear, "Mommy I'm a hungry boy, boohoohoo, I'm a hungry boy, sob, Mommy, I'm a hungry boy." There's just nothing like it in the world. It breaks your heart and makes you smile all at the same time. I fed my sweet boy some bread. He decided he couldn't go to bed without another small dump truck sleeping with him. (Thanks Auntie! He loves the truck and I LOVE the apron. Betty Crocker, be ready to be put to shame!) This means in his toddler bed there is: 1 small boy, 1 snoring horse, 1 puppy (thanks Auntie Tara), 1 "Mac" aka semi with trailer and 1 small dump truck. It's getting crowded, but he can be comfortable aaannnywaaaaay.

More Spring Photos

A very good friend of mine from high school stopped by to visit, with her family. It was so great to meet them and see her since it's been 10 years! Here is Matthew with Cody and Logan. They had an awesome time playing and getting into mischief.

Matthew and the dogs playing in between the rain.

Tulips coming up.

Some awesome tulips Mom bought that have a red heart on every petal. I love them!

First outside bloom of the year. It's a spring iris. I can't wait for it to bloom.

We have made it to Spring Break! Matthew and I are going to do a little spring cleaning and visit with family and friends. I still can't shake my cough and now Matthew is getting it. It is getting very old! We are ready to be 100% again.

Spring delights

It was so much warmer and sunny last week, we spent as much time outside as possible. In the playhouse at daycare with a friend.

Back to falling out of cars.

"Lifeguard of the playground"

Playing at Auntie's with the cool tricycle she got for him.

All ready to play football.

After and during being sick we had Phil's car break, so I've been working on getting my car fixed, so we have 2 running cars instead of just 1! What a mess. I think we have most of the bugs worked out with my car, so hopefully we can keep it on the road awhile. So with all that going on, Matthew and I were on the road alot and had no time for blogs. Maybe now things will settle down and we can go back to blogging. The weather is getting better all the time and I'm much more inspired to take photos. I'm so glad spring is nearly here!!!
