Picture post

Well, I am so behind on posting that I decided to just do a huge picture post... and try to catch you up on our lives! We have been enjoying a great spring with lots of visits with family and that has been great! The Lord has blessed us so richly and we are enjoying loving and living and laughing through each day he gives us! In March we headed to my folks for Mom's 50th birthday... and even pulled off a small surprise party!
The boys and I enjoyed 2 trips to zoos in March. First to Wichita with GG and Esther


And the second trip to Omaha with the Ulmers and Grandma Sue

During Grandma Sue's visit we were surprised with a late spring snow... and went sledding!

I am still not sure she believes us when we say it was in the 70*s the week before! :)

Opps this picture will not turn :(

More snow! I think we got over a foot!

Guess how much I love you!

Philip crawls very well not and pulls up on everything. Paul can't wait to help him walk!

We enjoyed a quiet day celebrating our Lord's Resurrection. He's Alive!

An old Ulmer tradition... the breakfast lamb cake, made from banana bread, topped with whipped cream and strawberries.

Special place settings

Two excited boys!

Daddy reads the new books

Trying on their new shirts from Grandma Sue

Got to be goofy!

There is always room on Mama's lap for her boys!

All dressed up and ready for church..

So cute!

Playing fort/camp. The most popular thing right now. Setting up a fort or camp to eat food (blocks) and drink coffee, (where did they get that? Scott and I don't drink coffee!:) And chew cowboy gum. (Paul folds paper to look like gum wrappers and they pretend to eat gum all day. Now I really have to check his pockets in the wash though, they can have 20 "gum" wrappers stuck in each!)

Helping make supper...

Someone likes things spicy! :0

What a funny boy!

P.S. Could you please e-mail me that zucchini peach coffee cake recipe that you made when I visited last August with the Ulmers? It was SO good!
