April wrap up, and May forward

I love my outings with each of the boys, each one has his own time, and I relish seeing how their personalities differ. E is my spunky one, full of smiles over a treat at Panera Bread.
Mmmmm pumpkin muffin!
We went to a park w/ our playgroup and E loved chasing the ducks.
E playing on the playground.
M had Back to School night. I love this image of R w/ the younger two boys, reminds me of the one that I took way back when in Sept. with R holding M's hand. Now M wanted to walk alone, Mr. Independant :)

M walking to Back to School Night.
Daddy and E checking out the display in M's class.
M on the classroom scavenger hunt.
M's family project. We kept it simple, so M could do it, and he was proud of it.
M and his friend L, both me and his mom volunteer together every week.
E at a park for a birthday party.
Love how the birthday parties we've gone to have been at the park, beautiful weather, lovely time with friends. We've known this little boy since both him and M were maybe 10 months old, and both our families have expanded to three kids.
E took a whack at the pinata.

G helped get the pinata down out of the tree.
E enjoyed the sweet treats inside.
This past week I went w/ M and his whole school (yes, all 200+ kids) to the Fresno zoo. It was exhausting, but fun. I partnered up w/ another mom I knew, and we took our four boys all over the place. It was great seeing M get more out of the zoo this time than he did last year, maybe because they've been talking a lot about animals.
My little monkey :)
The bus ride home was nice and quiet ;)
Another birthday party at a park this weekend. Great weather. Good time with friends we've known in town since our eldest were babies in daycare (back when both us moms were in grad school.

This month was a bit of a challenge to blog, but my plan is not to let it fall by the wayside. We have plenty of adventures ahead, both close to home, and far away. Life has been busy at home trying to keep up w/ the day to day (R rocks in so many ways!) and putting our rooms back together after getting painted and new carpet (which I'm not sure I even posted?). Lots have been going to donations, including some of my beloved books, ready to find a new home, and me, ready to have room for new activites and a new appreciation for simplicity. Looking forward to hitting the farmers markets hard core soon, and gearing up to can and learn some new skills (like knitting :) ) So adieu April, you passed by in a blink; and Hello May :)
