Caedmon and Jensen are keeping me on my toes while Liesel is at school. Jensen is now running everywhere he goes. When he runs his little cheeks bounce up and down. It is so cute! He loves to "explore"...........that is a nice way to say: pulling things out of drawers and throwing in trash cans, unrolling toilet paper rolls, putting things in toilets, throwing toys, taking things out of the dishwasher, etc. I don't know if Jensen is more active than Liesel and Caedmon were as toddlers or is it just because I am older and have two other kids. HA! I am much more tired this time around. There is never a quiet moment in our house. Caedmon and Jensen have a sweet brotherly relationship. Just recently I have been able to watch them interact together in love......well.........that is after they wrestle. :)
Here is a cute picture I took when they had matching shorts on. I did not plan for them to have matching shorts. I am not that organized! I buy their clothes at consignment sales. I had bought Caedmon's pair last summer. My friend Jeni has been giving me her son's outgrown clothes and there happened to be a pair of the same shorts in the pile. So needless to say, I had to take a picture. I just wish I had a "little bro" shirt for Jensen.
For Easter Sunday lunch we got together with some of our great friends at a park for a potluck picnic. All the kids had an egg hunt. It was fun. When we got home, it was time to pack. Liesel was on Spring Break the whole next week. We have been wanting to visit my Uncle Tom (my mother's brother) for some time now. So we headed to Maryland for most of the week with my Mom and Dad. Once we got there we were able to spend some time with Tom. It was so good to see him again. Here are some pictures from our time at his house.
After we had lunch, we had scheduled a 2 hour bus tour. Our tour guide was very good and we were able to stop at a few major attractions and take pictures. Surprisingly Jensen did great on the tour even though his mother was a nervous wreck that he would disrupt other people. It was not a very crowded bus at all so he was able to walk around.
We stopped at the Capital. Jensen loved running on the lawn!
I was so happy to get my hands on that cute pink box. I honestly think I was more excited than the kids if that is possible. I just love sweets!
Here they are!!!!!!!! We got six to start with :) They looked too good to eat, but we somehow managed to eat them! We split three so we all could get a taste.
That afternoon, we went through a few more museums. Craig enjoyed the Air and Space Museum because he loves planes. I was still on a buzz from my cupcakes that I couldn't tell you much about that museum. Hehe! Caedmon and Liesel enjoyed themselves.
Liesel wanted a picture in front of the tower at the Maryland Metro station as a memory of the fun she had on the train. If you ask both of them to this day what their favorite thing to do in DC was they will tell you.........riding the Metro! Yeah, I don't get it! Just yesterday, Caedmon told ne he wanted to move to a big city like DC so he could do all that stuff everyday.
