Lucky (March 16-22)

It was St. Patrick's Day this week.  The kids wore their St. Patrick's Day shirts (Liam wore his twice!).  We were lucky to have more beautiful warm weather, lots of time outside, lots of play and giggles and chasing and digging.  And treats, too.


March 16:  Liam requested burgers for lunch, so we headed for the diner.  But, he didn't want to leave until almost noon so by the time we got there, the list and wait were long.  Luckily, tickles help pass the time with giggles instead of screams.


While waiting, we were identified as just the suckers we are.  So Brian bought both kids a little guitar from a guy walking down the street.



Luckily, they helped pass the time too.  They are actually kind of nice guitars, tunable and everything.



Liam really wanted some cookies and cream ice cream ("cookies kind!") since he ate a good lunch.  But the diner was out.  So, we went to another shop to find it.  


And then we headed home.  


March 17:  Brian wanted me to snap a picture of him with the kids in their green St. Patrick's Day shirts.  Brenna wasn't so keen on that idea.


Liam somewhat willingly posed for pictures solo.


And so did Brenna.


March 18:  I made the kids robots out of our Rok Blocks.



Then they found these old pool noodles and started smacking each other with them (and me).

Couch fort has morphed into a couch slide.



Ta Da!

(Liam is rewearing his green shirt because it they celebrated St. Patrick's Day at his school)


March 19:  A new package of hair clips arrived in the mail.  And Brenna had to try them all on.  At once.


Then Liam went fishing in our drain.


And tried to pop bubbles with his mouth.


Parallel play.


And playing together.


With vans and cars and motorcycles.


Then it was time for a popsicle.  They don't self push their popsicles yet.


Post bath naked racing.  This is one of their new favorite things.  It actually gets them out of the bath, which is a plus.  Without screaming even.  Then they have a path that they race around their bedrooms, the hall and through their bathroom.  One part of their path takes them underneath Liam's bed, of course.


March 21:  Ring around the rosey; Pocket full of poseys; 


Ashes.  Ashes.


We all fall down!


March 22:  Backyard digging is still very popular.


And serious work.


Ravioli is a snack helper.


Oh that face.
