March Photo A Day: An Animal

This is the “bad cat” from “Big Cat, Small Cat,” Toby’s favorite book. Whenever he sees this guy, he gets really excited and says “He’s MAAAAAAAAAD!!!”

March Photo A Day: A Corner of Your Home

This is my favorite corner in the bedroom. I feel like I’ve posted this exact picture a few times before, but I love love love this place.

Spring Walk

We took a walk today, as the weather was so perfect.

I was fascinated by the hyacinths in the yard – we have pink, purple, and white (and neither of us remembered planting pink ones!).

I found the tiniest little daffodil in a neighbor’s yard.

Toby and Nomi enjoyed some time on the playground at the church just a few houses down from us.

The trees were all budding.

The slide, of course, was a big hit.

Daddy and Mona snuggled in the tire swing.

The kids enjoyed posing for pictures.

Nomi needed a bit of help getting up the ladder, but managed it pretty well.

Toby is getting too big for his tricycle. It’ll go to Nomi soon.

Soon we got bored of the playground and decided to keep walking down the street.

Daddy and I took lots of pictures – I took over 150 on the walk alone!

We stopped and spoke to a neighbor who had just gotten his family farm (in the family since the ’20s) preserved by the Lancaster Farmland Trust. He was so excited, and it’s great to see some of the idyllic Pennsylvania countryside preserved from development.

Mona was still wide awake and just hanging out on Daddy’s shoulder when we reached home again.

I hope our spring will be full of these walks. We live in such a beautiful place.

March Photo A Day: Car

Toby smiling in the back of the new Mazda 5. Kerry and I went to the Maryland HB1056 rally in Annapolis, MD and took 4 of the 6 kids we had between us! Not only did we survive, but we managed to fit me, Kerry, Toby, Nomi, Mona, and Remy (Kerry’s son) in the car. 1 front-facing car seat and 3 rear-facing car seats. We were very proud.

March Photo A Day: Clouds

This is hanging in the kids’ play room. It was done by Keith’s Aunt Joyce and we inherited it and a bunch of her other pictures after she died. Pop-Pop (Keith’s dad) made the frame.
