This is by no means an exhaustive recap of the month of April. Just a look at some of the fun we've had. And, um, that doesn't mean the things that weren't photographed weren't fun, right? Right.
My sister came to visit for Easter weekend. Looking for someplace fun to take her that wasn't too far away, we took a chance and went to an Earth Day festival downtown. A good time was had by all. Probably because just about every booth at the festival was handing out freebies. What's more green then FREE?
Bionic Man and Justone were fascinated by the hybrid vehicles. Unfortunately, those weren't free.
Superkid begs for intricate face painting, like this, every time we visit our local zoo. I have never said yes. At the zoo, something like this costs $12-18. At the Earth Day Festival, it was free. Sort of. I did spend approximately 90 minutes of my life waiting in line with Superkid for this. And she posed herself.
Um, yep, that's me you can hear laughing loudly in the background. Hence the reason for the camera shaking. I'm not a fan of hip hop, but I am a fan of freestyle dance moves by seven year olds.
The little guy dancing started to draw quite a crowd, which definitely made things more fun for the band. A couple songs later, the lead singer jumped off the stage to capitalize on the attention. Despite the lead singer's best efforts, the little guy just kept stealing the show.
The day after the Earth Day festival was Easter.....and Endeavor's birthday! She turned twelve. Twelve!
Since it was such a big day for Endeavor, we let her choose the menu for Easter dinner, and invite the guests. Mashed potatoes are Endeavor's ultimate favorite food. So, instead of the traditional Easter ham, Endeavor chose a mashed potato bar. We came up with a wide variety of toppings and let everyone go to town.
Unfortunately, due to hostessing duties, I missed many photo ops. I did, however, get pics of the birthday pies--another request from the birthday girl. See the E for Endeavor?
A few days after Easter, Justone competed in his last Pinewood Derby as a cub scout.
Not to leave anyone out of the April recap, Hunter the Dog continues to be the most patient family pet on the face of the Earth. Are you getting the impression that Hunter spends a lot of time in costume?
