happy earth day

isla came home from school with lots of new ideas.
#1 we shouldn't throw away garbage.
#2 we should recycle (we do)
#3 there are only 2 tigers and 1 whale left
#4 it's earth day. don't you love the earth?

and then she sat down and drew this


isla is a little proud of her uncle andrew. he's in a band. even at the age of 5 she's knows that being in a band is cool. this is what she wanted to draw for uncle andrew.

while dad's away

last week brandon was in cananda for dental conference. so i took the kids to the spring fair.

i got there and realized i had completely forgotten my camera! not to worry, the old point-and-shoot was still in my purse. i was a little worried about how i would wrangle all three kids by myself. let's just say that i don't know how i would have done it if i did have my camera with me. the p&s is obviously no comparison in picture quality to my DSLR, i'm a little sad. but at least i got a few photos from the day.

they had pony rides this year. it was the only thing the kids could think about once they saw those horses! it cost one token to ride. macrae was a little obsessed with his token.

isla has been crazy about horses ever since we tried to take her on a pony ride at ocean shores but the small horse was hurt so she didn't get to ride. she might take marion's place in the family as the horse girl.
macrae thought he was a real cowboy because the pony ride guys told him so.

ofcourse, isla remembered the fall fair and HAD to take her brother on her favorite "ride."

but macrae loved the airpanes ride the best.

rhettsy was a good boy in the stroller the WHOLE TIME.

and don't worry, i didn't leave without a few scones for myself. one now. one for after. and one for after, after.

post edit: i just noticed macrae is wearing the same shirt he wore to the fair last year! that is awesome!

"the most beautiful band member" (i did not coin this phrase, i'm just repeating it) of parlor hawk (f.k.a. MOSES or Son of Moses). the handsome bass player. MY LITTLE BROTHER.

(photo by the lead singer's very talented wife, elise)

last night they released this cd:

we were there rocking out with heads bobbing, tears streaming, and voices roaring.

thanks easter bunny

easters and eggs

this years' bunny (isn't she a BABE?)

rhett only cared about the egg in his two hands... and what was inside.

counting her loot.

macrae had so many eggs i had to take handfulls of eggs and throw them back on the grass for the other egg hunters.

and then he found the puddle. it was all over.
