We had fantastic, HOT, weather for Easter this year. All the chocolate was melting after three minutes! I guess it’s not something you can really complain about???
Eamon had already had some practice in South Carolina and a local hunt, so he knew what to do!
On the lookout
Down to business
The Easter bunny knows we have active boys… Thank you Farmor!
We went to Game 2 of the 2017 season. We got a Rick Porcello bobblehead and watched him being acknowledged with his Cy Young Award from 2016.
Nice awards for some great players
Eoin was pretty impressed by the Lego Wally someone had made
Eoin was the Star of the Week at school so I had to get some photos of activities he liked for his poster. Normally we are not allowed take photos of swim class, but it was a perfect opportunity to ask for a special photo opp.
Loved being with my boys in green.
The Three Es are early risers in this house. I will qualify that statement however, and mention that the oldest E is an unwilling participant, and would much prefer not to wake up with her toddler in the morning…
Eamon has been waking at 6am. Eoin has been waking at 6.30am. We are hoping things improve in that regard… And while it may suck, I know such things never last forever (this is when I imagine their teenage years, sleeping in until 11… and remember my teenage years, wishing I had savored those lie-ins just a little more…
It’s cold downstairs in the morning. We need to snuggle to stay warm.
During school vacation week we went to visit my family in Ireland. The fresh spring flowers brightened up even showery days. Anyway, people have developed solutions to wet bottoms from slides:
Took some guts but he was deterined!
The boys had a great time hanging out with their cousins in Limerick.
When we got back to Dublin we continued to pack things in as best as possible.
We tried to raid Mamo’s rock at the National Museum, and we saw the bog bodies.
We waited out a blustery shower in Dun Laoghaire.
At bowling and the arcade with Gemma
Eamon tried to destroy the his brother’s will
Eamon set his escape plan in motion at Airfield
Conor’s favorite tree at Airfield
But all too soon it was time to survive the flight home with Eamon the Energizer Bunny
We had the stomach bug course through our house earlier this week. On Tuesday my two sick boys still ventured out to pick up Conor from school. Eoin was twelve hours ahead of Eamon so he even helped pull the sled.
Using those muscles
Look at all those cars. I was way happier using the sled… And, CUTEness!!!
Today (Thursday) was called a snow day the night before. We are all well now, but I really really don’t want to go out in it! Windchill will be down to -8F (-22C).
Santa delivered some rather large Nerf guns to the boys this year. Eamon is thankfully too young. He got some cool Duplo and ball toys.
Learning to unwrap
Delivery for Daddy
Lighting the pudding
The rest of our Christmas can basically be imagined by freeze framing this next photo for two weeks… The NES Classic that Daddy lined up at dawn for three mornings in a row was quite a hit, especially with Daddy…
And we had some very excited boys stirring in the house…
Checking out our tree!
What do you mean I can’t eat the cookies?
My crazy boys
