The rest of the Random Recap...

This spring, Brandon opted to do the project fair at school & picked pyramids as his subject. He did a good job researching & even designing his poster board into the shape of a pyramid (totally his idea)! All the kids got to display their projects one evening for everyone to view. 

For Easter we headed up to the cities & stayed with Allison & Natalie.  The kids always love seeing their cousin Allison. They were pretty excited on "Easter Eve"!

 Easter morning was a bit interesting as apparently we forgot to let the Easter bunny know we'd be in the cities... Melanie was quick to conclude that the Easter bunny must have been confused when he didn't find the baskets at our house but left the stuff for there baskets back at our house anyway.  But luckily, the bunny had eggs of candy to hide for an egg hunt...
 It was a nice morning for an egg hunt...
 ... & Allison even needed some help from her little cousins to find a few of her eggs!
 Happy Easter!! 

The kids were anxious to get home to see if the bunny had left their stuff...
... that silly bunny had left it in their chairs at the table!

Trout fishing opened in April... Mike is always eager to get out & the kids enjoy taking turns going with him.
 Brandon & Mike had a good opening day (above)
& he & Melanie did well the next outing too (below).

And this year with our crazy early spring meant the morel mushroom season was also early creating quite the dilemma for Mike... trout fishing or mushroom hunting... what to do?
 Today, morel hunting won out!

Melanie hit another milestone this month... she was super excited to lose her first tooth!!!  And not too long after, she lost the second one!

Our cute little Trout Fishing Girl!

And the up & coming morel hunter! 


We have been talking for years about getting an ATV... so we finally stopped talking about it... we are now the owners of a fun new toy!

So far it seems to be a hit with the whole family...

With the early spring, the morels seemed early.  But after some rainy weather, there seemed to be a second season... and some pretty big mushrooms as a result!  Mike had quite the banner mushroom year!
