Hoping for better weather

Don't worry, we'll be back to this again soon. Something about April showers and May flowers...

For Grandpop Doyle's retirement gift, Ollie and I got to take a ride on Thomas today! I don't understand it either, but I'm not complaining.  

Thomas talked to us before and during the ride out of Baltimore, and Grandpop helped us find cool things to watch out the window. You can't see it in this picture, but we were in the first car, right next to Thomas, so I could see his white puffs of smoke the whole ride. Pretty cool.

Afterwards, Ollie and I showed Grandmom and Grandpop around the Baltimore train museum. I hope Thomas stops by again. Next time, he should really bring Percy too. It's a big museum, there's enough room for both of them.

Somewhere under the rainbow...

I'm telling you, that means the pot of gold is right by the playground! It'd be foolish not to go check it out.

Family portrait

Sigh. Mom and Dad just never smile big enough for these photos.

Visiting Tommy

Tommy and I helped Grandmom get ready for Easter Sunday brunch by testing out all the grass on Saturday. It seems like it's in good shape. It felt springy when we tackled each other intro the ground. 

Then we dyed our Easter eggs. Tommy wanted to color them white. Luckily, Uncle Tom showed him the other options available. I tried to make one that said "Happy birthday, Grandmom" but all I got on there was a "J". Close enough.

After a long day of work, we both sat down to watch our Ice Age movies. It was a blast. I don't know why we don't do this every day.

Fast friends

I know what the science book says. But I still think that the Brachiosaurus and Lightning McQueen would have been friends.

Gardening time

Dad and I got the flowers in this weekend (OK, Grandmom Shane helped a little too). I wanted nothing but red flowers, but the purple and white ones ended up looking pretty good. 

After all that dirt, I figured the flowers needed a bath. After all, Mom and Dad said I did.

From my "throwing balls into the air" series

I can get the tennis ball really high...

...but I feel like the basketball is more dramatic.

Playing catch

Now, Dad, just hold out your arms and I'll toss you the ball.

Spring decorations

You know what this driveway needs? Dinosaurs. A lot more dinosaurs.

Regularly scheduled programming

Um, what's Dad doing on TV? And why aren't we watching Thomas the Tank Engine?

School picture time

We had school pictures again today. I won't get copies for a few more weeks, but here's what I looked like at the end of the day. Hopefully my hair was a little more under control when the photographer got me first thing in the morning.
