Day-to-Day, March 12

Phone pictures from the past week.  Sorry for so many! 

For Eli's cousin Hayley's birthday party, we went roller skating!  This was Eli's first time on skates, and the first time Eric and I had been on skates in quiiiiiiite some time.  :)  We had fun, though, and we all escaped the rink with nary a broken bone.

A site unlikely to be seen ever again: the Wilsons in rollerskates.

Last week Elizabeth and CJ and Eli and me went to an idoor "Safari Park" in Plano.  It was really cute, and the boys had a blast.  Which is why CJ wouldn't slow down for a second so I could get a picture of them together!  :)

Eric so sweetly took down all the blinds and cleaned them for me last weekend!  I loved the way the water droplets looked in the sun.

Eli watching Eric out the window:

Spring has SPRUNG in Dallas!  I love all the bradford pear trees in bloom.

A rainbow on our drive home from Waco last weekend:  (It was actually the first full arc rainbow I've ever seen!  I couldn't fit it all in the frame though.)

Coloring intently:

After three years of allowing our asparagus plants to mature (They are crazy finicky plants!), we had a bountiful harvest of two stalks.  :)

Kicking off spring break with frozen yogurt!  Eli chose cake batter yogurt topped with gummy bears, sprinkles, marshmallows, snickers, and Nilla wafers.  Yum.  :)

Another rainbow- this time in dinner prep:

As mentioned, we spent Saturday with friends in Waco at their family's ranch.  It was a super-fun, country day!  Here's Eli looking out the window at the horse/cow pasture:

Horse feeding:

Fish catching:

Worm digging:

Tree climbing:

Creek wading: (which quickly turned into a general mud and water fest)

And here's what you do with three very wet and very muddy boys on the (short, very slow, extremely safe) drive back up to the ranch house:

Hope you are having a happy week!
