April “Photo Dump” Post

Jensyn’s new raincoat & hat from Aunt Donna

This was an impromptu photo session with all three kiddos…a failed attempt at getting all three lined up & smiling, but at least they were happy!

We’re back to chilly weather again, but we enjoyed the warm days while they lasted.  We ate picnic lunches outside and had water fights with the hose!

Little Miss looked longingly out the back door as her brothers played on the swing set while Mama was cooking dinner.  She “yelled” happily to her brothers to get their attention.

The boys went bowling for the first time!  My sisters and their kids were on spring break, so we met for lunch at Steak & Shake and then headed to the bowling alley.  We’re so sad that Daddy had to miss this, as the boys were hilarious and super excited.

We took Grandma & Papa out for dinner for the anniversary.  Max was wiggly by the time we finished eating, and he took a few minutes to “hang out” in this little cubby under the server’s station.

FINALLY, last week Friday, Jensyn got finally figured out that standing is fun!  She knew how, but she really never cared to do it.  Now, she’s standing.all.the.time.  There’s no sitting for this girl anymore!  She’s either crawling at super-speed or standing.

Since the boys had so much fun bowling, and since we had a free Saturday afternoon, we took the kids to our local bowling alley.  They weren’t quite so excited this time around, but it was still a good time.

Max was in a feisty mood!  We had bumpers for the boys, but he was DETERMINED that it would be more fun to roll his ball down the gutter.  He tried and tried to sneak past us and roll his ball down the gutter on the neighboring lane.  When he finally realized we wouldn’t let him, he decided to just hang out under the ball return.  2 year olds – they keep life interesting! ;)

Jensyn clapped and cheered for our little bowlers.

Since it will NEVER happen again, I would like to point out that I beat my husband.  (He’s the top score; I’m the bottom one.)  Certainly 136 is not a great bowling score, but Keith is a much better bowler than I am…and he only had 104.  He kept slipping & sliding all over the floor.  We don’t know if it was his shoes, or what the deal was.  All I know is, I have to keep this to prove I beat him…once. ;)

What fun!! Sammy has yet to go bowling but I think its in the plan soon! I think scoring anything over 100 is good ;-) I am usually there with you as well! Love the raincoat and the photo shoot!
