Bedtime Stories - The Wheels Story

Photobucket

Tonight's adventure was a short one involving Challenger visiting 57 Chev.

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.

The End.

Linkert Winter activities

I took the kids to the Early Childhood "Daddy and me" night out with the girls. It was a nice event with crafts, snack, play, and another dad brought his guitar and lead some songs. The girls were not on their best behavior unfortunately.

Photobucket

We met up with the Sebaskys to go ice skating at the Shirley Hills ice rink.

Photobucket

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!

Photobucket

Last year Janet bought this helper for new skaters. Here Kendall takes a turn.

Photobucket

Cecelia skated strong. She moved around the ice pretty good with no assistance.

Photobucket

Maeve is more cautious... but got around a bit without assistance.

Photobucket

The kid in the background was showing off... zipping around at perilous speeds. Punk.

Photobucket

Cecelia and Mason share.

Photobucket

Uh... that's not skating Maeve.

Photobucket

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.

Photobucket

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.

Photobucket

Stopped at the campfire on the way back and enjoyed some suckers.

Photobucket

Maeve kicking back.

Photobucket

The girls love helping mom in the kitchen.

Cecelia turns Four!

Cecelia's birthday was a couple days ago, so we invited some friends over Saturday for a party.

Photobucket

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!

Photobucket

Even Isaiah played... though he wasn't so sure about the whole thing.

Photobucket

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.

Photobucket

Cecelia's fish cake... prepared by mom.

Photobucket

Then Sunday we met the Burfiends, my folks and the Bradways at a bowling ally to celebrate.

Photobucket

The kids did a great job!

Photobucket

Cecelia sends it down the lane!

Photobucket

Enjoying our time with Hans.

Photobucket

Grandpa takes a turn.

Photobucket

There goes Seth!

Photobucket

Happy Birthday Cecelia!

Photobucket

Cecelia Horse cake (also shaped in a number 4)

Photobucket

With one of her gifts was makeup... sigh.

Late winter days at Basso

We got a new friend coming to Basso!

Photobucket

Josh has been busy learning colors... he's busy learning yellow here.

Photobucket

We like cars... we like ramps... we like cars jumping off ramps into the bins!

Photobucket

Sawyer enjoying a book.

Photobucket

Josh flashes some necklaces he made.

Photobucket

Our old friend Peter stopped by. Here he's playing games with Cecelia.

Photobucket

The kids like playing on the rocking recliner lately.

Photobucket

Shaping things with play-doh.

Photobucket

Isaiah flashes a grin.

Photobucket

We enjoy our freshly snowless deck. Once it warmed up... it was pretty easy to push the ice and snow off the deck.

Photobucket

Coloring some green with Sawyer and Isaiah.

Photobucket

The Basso gang.

Photobucket

Isaiah pushing trucks.... everyone likes to push the trucks!

Photobucket

I guess everyone likes tea parties too... this one hosted outside by Cecelia and Maeve.

Photobucket

Janet realized Isaiah had a shirt on that had a striking resemblence to a cake pattern in a book she recently acquired.

Photobucket

Sawyer is a little slow to eat, but loves watching what the other kids are up to.

Photobucket

Maeve peeking around the corner

Photobucket

Tea party inside this time... hosted by Cecelia and Maeve. These seem to be happening quite more frequently now that Janet is home.

Photobucket

Sawyer and Josh playing with the laundry baskets.
