All the boys got hair cuts this morning. I did the twins and Shane did Tytan. They were all good sports and are ready for some summer sun. Tytan was playing outside, so I'll have to add his picture later.
Why is it that one year olds love to play under the table? The boys love to go under and over the bars between the chair legs. Tytan loved playing under the table when he was this age too. It's all fun and games until someone bumps their head.
This Easter we spent at my parent's house in Vancouver. It is the first time we have been there for Easter with our own kids. We dyed eggs with the boy cousins Ryan and Ian. In the morning we did our own egg hunt in the living room with all the hard boiled eggs. The twins found two each and then ate through the shells to eat the eggs. It was so gross and my parent's new carpet was covered with hard boiled egg. Stinky! We should have just let them find the candy filled eggs instead of saving them for the bigger kids. Before lunch Tytan, Ryan and Ian hunted for eggs and got more than 20 each. Their baskets were overflowing. I made lunch this year with a ham, ranch red potatoes, carrots, a fruit salad and easter grass cupcakes. When we were all full, we hopped in the car for our six hour ride home.
Grandpa had some deliveries to make on the way to the coast, so we went along for a day trip to the beach. We saw lots of boats and seagulls and came home full of sand. We stopped at the aquarium to fed the seals and touch the crabs.
This morning we went to the Oregon Zoo. It seems to be a tradition each time we visit Grandma Hahn. The weather was cold and wet but we had a blast and fed the lorikeets for the first time. We bought two cups of juice for the birds, I had one and Tytan had the other. When the second bird landed on his arm he got scared and threw his cup. I ended up with 5 birds on my arms, shoulders and even on top of my head. The birds held still and let the babies pet them too.
Grandpa took off for a hike with the Boy Scouts and Tytan was so sad. He really wanted to go camping so we made a tent in the living room and put out the sleeping bags on the floor. Thankfully after about 20 minutes Tytan decided we should sleep in our beds instead. I am too old to sleep on a hard floor!
