What We Have Been Doing the Last 3 Months

May 20th, 2013 . by Jason

Welp, these days all I have time for are picture posts. But a small bit of good news that should help my quality (and frequency!) of blogs: I’m quitting my job. June 20 is my last day. I am moving on to bigger and better things, Thing 1 and Thing 2 to be exact…my children. It’s been a long time a coming. :) I am really looking forward to spending the summer with them. We have kite flying, water fights, cookie making, picnics, and so much more to look forward to. Cannot wait!

Now, here’s an old fashioned albums worth of photos, as promised.

DSC_0019Jack’s photography…nice bokeh, eh?

He loves the penguins!

Cadence loves the pouty face. :)

Alvin came to visit! And his parents, too :)….but I didn’t manage to get a photo of all of us.

Little Miss scoping out the competition at the community Easter egg hunt.

Guess who’s 30!! And guess who picked out the cake!

Alice and Cadence, they’re practically BFFs when Cadence isn’t pulling Alice’s hair out.

Jack on “the hunt.”

Cadence thoroughly enjoying Daddy’s birthday cake. (WOW, these pictures are SO out of order, just keeping you on your toes!)

Jack digging in; like the Smurf-stache?

Somebody got a soccer ball for Easter!

DSC_0347

She was good, she would grab 3 eggs at a time like it was nothing!

DSC_0354

Wonder what Daddy got for his birthday?

DSC_0357

Here we are!

DSC_0360

And another egg hunt in our yard.

Cadence…falling or jumping?

DSC_0383Dying eggs in shaving cream. This didn’t really work – PIN FAIL, but at least our eggs smelled like a nicely groomed gentleman.

Marmie Lane came for a visit!

DSC_0398

And then she got really sad when she had to leave.

DSC_0454

We all got sad.

DSC_0455

Cause she’s pretty great.

DSC_0461

Cute mother, son, grandaughter, grandson moment, huh?

Hey! That’s me! Jack took this one. He’s getting pretty good with the camera, eh?

IMG_0308

And then she started doing the “duck-face”. 15 months going on 15 years. :)

IMG_0661

We love the garden. It’s not yielding much yet but my strawberries are getting close!!

IMG_0668

Sometimes, Cadence is a little impatient with the plants and just goes for the dirt.

IMG_0671

Things get a little crazy here.

IMG_0713

And sometimes we just peacefully play in the sand.

IMG_0737

Which lasts about 5 minutes and then we are beating up on our big brother.

Or fearlessing scaling the bathroom cabinet.

Little Miss Farmer.

IMG_0745

Jack the pilot.

IMG_0752

Cadence the jockey.

IMG_0757

Look at that sibling love, sharing a stool to brush their teeth together.

IMG_0766

Cadence loving shoes; all shoes, even big boy shoes.

IMG_1237

Another with Alvin! What a sweetie pie.

Jack and his girlfriend Whitney. They grow up so fast, don’t they?
