The broccoli snatchers

Taking food off the counter isn't usually allowed, but who could stop such enthusiastic broccoli eating?

Ant observers

... enjoying a springtime meadow.

Springtime hike

We went to Foothill Park again today. In the month since our last hike here the wildflowers have really been blooming up a storm. Kelton found a bunch of coralroot, a parasitic orchid, I found a big mule ears. All the kiddos enjoyed trying out the binoculars. We also found a very active anthill and two bee hives.

Adventures around town

This weekend we had a variety of local fun. Saturday was the May Fete children's parade downtown. Brennan and Weston met a clown up close. Weston kept saying, 'I saw a clean, mommy, a clean!'. Kelton yelled out 'Hi principal Mary!' when his school marched by and she answered with 'Hi Kelton!'.

After the parade, we visited a little redwood forest and splashed in the stream. We found a humming bird nest. Kelton built a dam with Daddy.

Sunday, I enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day pumpkin pancake breakfast cooked by all the boys. Later we went paddling with Suji, Dan & boys. All in all a fun and full weekend!
