House Hunting

We spent the better part of four days learning our way around Carmel and looking at neighborhoods and houses.  I think we saw a dozen or so homes in three days.  The boys were really into it at first...picking out where their rooms might be and seeing the basements.  Basements were such a foreign concept to us and filled with so many playing possibilities for them.  By the time we saw the house that would eventually be ours, they'd kinda lost interest though.  But luckily I snapped a few pictures of them in and around the home that we would eventually buy.

The Children's Museum of Indy

Amidst all the house hunting we tried to work lots of fun into the agenda.  We made the short drive down to Indianapolis for an afternoon at the Children's Museum and were overwhelmingly surprised at how wonderful it was.  The Dinosphere was our favorite part, but the whole museum was filled with so many fun things to do and learn.  The boys had a wonderful time and Shayne bought us a family membership.

St. Patty's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!  Grant had a cuter outfit with more green on it, but he pooped all over it before I could get a picture.  Oh well!

Room Service!

Our big Spring Break road trip to Indiana was a lot of fun...but also exhausting.
We were all glad to stay in the hotel room one night and enjoy room service.  The boys thought eating in bed was just about the coolest thing ever!

Boys N Bears

Whitney started a tradition with Travis of making a Build a Bear for each of the boys.  Here is Travis with Cooper, Cole with Collin, and Grant with Carson.  These bears have been on every Teddy Bear picnic the older boys have ever attended and I'm sure Grant will love his special bear friend just as much.  Thanks, Whitney!  You're a sweetie!

Literature Day

Travis chose to be Jack from the Magic Treehouse series.  He took it easy on his ol' mom...except for spray painting the glasses red, it was a super easy costume :)

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

It does appear that the entire cake was on fire...but it really wasn't.  As Travis said, "Happy birthday, old man!"
