All Hands on Deck!

Jason and his friend, Rich, (and occasionally others)are building a deck and screened-in porch off the back of our house. We can't wait for the work to be completed. The deck is done except for staining. Here are some pictures of the work in progress.



Fun in the Sun

Yesterday was a beautiful day- not too hot- and we got to spend a lot of time outside in our backyard. The newly sodded lawn was a great place to hang out. Today, Sunday, we went to the pool after a short stint at mass. Jack and Ben had their first swimming experience and loved it. Later, we took a LONG walk around town and got home nice and sweaty and thirsty! We vowed to never to leave the house on foot without water again!

Happy Earth Day!

Grandma and Grandpa Pieton left this morning, Earth Day, after a wonderful visit. Their help around the house and with the kids was GREATLY APPRECIATED. We're looking forward to their next visit next month.

The following video is from the Pietons previous visit (in February), but I didn't get to post it before. We thought it was hilarious. As you'll see, Jack is not a big fan of baby food.

Swing me faster, Grandpa!


Sofia was my little gardening helper. She likes to help water (feed) the flowers.

Buona Pasqua (Happy Easter)

The hunt is on!

video
Sofia had a number of Easter Egg hunts she participated in this year. We had so much fun watching her gather eggs. My family was able to come and spend Easter with us, which was so nice. We had a great visit and really enjoyed the extra help. We are convinced that we want my sister to be our nanny! She was such a wonderful help along with my mom, dad, and brother. Madison was a great help with Sofia, too. We got to help her celebrate her 10th birthday while she was here. Happy Birthday Madison! Come back again soon!
