Bike Riding

With the cousins visiting, we decided to take the five kids to the end of the road with their five bikes to practice riding. Our kids tried training wheels for the first time!

Ingles Farm

Today we went with the kids and their cousins to Ingles Farm, representative of life in the area in the late 1700s. The baby lambs that the triplets ran around with last year are now grown, and were being sheared.

Everyone had a lot of fun learning about the past.

We're nearing the end of the preschool year, and the kids are looking forward to summer. But after that, we'll be enrolling them 5 days a week instead of 3.

Rainy Days!

It's been raining each and every day here, and while we can't yet plant our garden, we can at least enjoy a nice walk in the rain!

We're all excited that Aunt Allison was accepted into medical school!

Children's Museum

We love the Children's Museum in Richmond. We went to the smaller branch this time, and decided that we're probably close to outgrowing it.

But we still had fun playing on the train, and getting creative with art projects.

Dentist Visit #2

Our second trip to the dentist went much better! (i.e. Coraline didn't throw up this time)

Making Rice Crispy Treats

Everyone seems to love cooking these days, and there are a number of projects (like Banana pudding) that the kids can make with little supervision. Here they mixed together and colored rabbits they made out of rice krispie treats.

Wild Animals!

Sometimes it seems like we're running a zoo.
