Bedtime Stories - The Wheels Story
While their parents were visiting inside, 57 Chev and Challenger were racing in the park and street, when Challenger noticed a puddle next to the trailer 57 Chev's parents owned. Challenger had a big thrill driving through the puddle of course, made much more fun as it splashed water and dirt on the trailer. 57 Chev got into the action too, driving through the puddle, and making the trailer even dirtier! Both cars were having a blast racing through this puddle, seeing how much mud they could get on the trailer.
After a while, their parents came out and were horrified at the mess the young cars made. Challenger and 57 Chev felt terrible about it. After a stern, short discussion about how to treat other peoples things, they helped their parent clean it up.
Linkert Winter activities
We met up with the Sebaskys to go ice skating at the Shirley Hills ice rink.
I had taken our girls out a couple weeks earlier, so they were a bit more familiar with being on the ice... this was Kendall and Masons first time, they really stuck with it though!
Last year Janet bought this helper for new skaters. Here Kendall takes a turn.
Cecelia skated strong. She moved around the ice pretty good with no assistance.
Maeve is more cautious... but got around a bit without assistance.
The kid in the background was showing off... zipping around at perilous speeds. Punk.
Cecelia and Mason share.
Uh... that's not skating Maeve.
Here's the gang. Had a great time!
Maeve imitating the Speed skaters while watching the Olympics.
Local Mound businesses the other day organized a Moonlight Trail Walk at the end of February. We hooked up with the Villamils for a nice dinner, and some cupcake decorating.
Here we are on the walk. The path was not as easy to walk as one would've hoped, but the kids did great, and we made part of the trek.
Stopped at the campfire on the way back and enjoyed some suckers.
Maeve kicking back.
The girls love helping mom in the kitchen.

Cecelia turns Four!
The highlight game was musical chairs... I don't think I've ever seen a musical chairs game go _so_ well.... we played it twice!
Even Isaiah played... though he wasn't so sure about the whole thing.
The game was supposed to be herding balloons with brooms... but the wind just lifted the balloons off the deck and just made things difficult... so we just made it a relay race.
Cecelia's fish cake... prepared by mom.
Then Sunday we met the Burfiends, my folks and the Bradways at a bowling ally to celebrate.
The kids did a great job!
Cecelia sends it down the lane!
Enjoying our time with Hans.
Grandpa takes a turn.
There goes Seth!
Happy Birthday Cecelia!
Cecelia Horse cake (also shaped in a number 4)
With one of her gifts was makeup... sigh.
Late winter days at Basso
Josh has been busy learning colors... he's busy learning yellow here.
We like cars... we like ramps... we like cars jumping off ramps into the bins!
Sawyer enjoying a book.
Josh flashes some necklaces he made.
Our old friend Peter stopped by. Here he's playing games with Cecelia.
The kids like playing on the rocking recliner lately.
Shaping things with play-doh.
Isaiah flashes a grin.
We enjoy our freshly snowless deck. Once it warmed up... it was pretty easy to push the ice and snow off the deck.
Coloring some green with Sawyer and Isaiah.
The Basso gang.
Isaiah pushing trucks.... everyone likes to push the trucks!
I guess everyone likes tea parties too... this one hosted outside by Cecelia and Maeve.
Janet realized Isaiah had a shirt on that had a striking resemblence to a cake pattern in a book she recently acquired.
Sawyer is a little slow to eat, but loves watching what the other kids are up to.
Maeve peeking around the corner
Tea party inside this time... hosted by Cecelia and Maeve. These seem to be happening quite more frequently now that Janet is home.
Sawyer and Josh playing with the laundry baskets.
