Spring weather - Yay!

Sorry this is late. We had a sick day Monday - just icky colds. Anyway, here's a pretty big post. Mom and Dad got the kids a mud pie making machine. It is hilarious! Sunday was the perfect day to try it out too. They thought it was awesome.
I love Kyle's face in this. He's showing off the finished product. Landon is adding a last minute sprinkle of dry dirt on top!
After a hard day of playing and playing outside, there is nothing better than watching Ninja turtles and eating pizza. Yum!
I love watching the boys ride their bikes to the park. They just look so funny. I wish I had their energy - it's amazing how fast those little legs can go!
We dug out the rockgarden on Sunday also. Erica did some rose bush cutting, and Carter kept us entertained. He liked to climb to the top level and sing some song of his own making. He was a good boy all day.
Kelsie officially bought Carter the coolest toy ever...the stomp rocket. It's pretty self explanatory, and it's awesome. We played with it for two hours each on Saturday and Sunday! I'll put up a video soon. Landon is watching his foam rocket fly. He looks so happy!
There's Carter watching his, and Avery is just ready for her turn.
Kyle and Grandpa can make the rockets really fly - up to 100 feet the box said! Everyone played with it - seriously the whole fam!
I love this swinging picture of Landon. He loves the swings! He's getting to be a daredevil too. He wants to go really high!
Grandma pushed Ave down to the park on her new bike. She thinks she's pretty cool on a bike like the boys.
This picture is out of order. Yesterday it was 72 degrees (fantastic!), and Avers got to wear some capris. She looked so cute. I can't wait for summer!
My little princess! She was looking lovely Sunday morning in her ballet pajamas and gold shoes.
Good throw Ave! Carter had a blast with Jordan's yellow ball at Emerson last week. That ball is really thick and super bouncy. Avery liked to say "lellow!" when she saw it. She likes to say yellow and purple all the time now.
All the kids love to drive with this wheel. I don't know why, but it's always been a favorite.
I asked for a kids cherry cone - this one is bigger than her head! DQ is open down by my parents' house, and everyone is happy!
She is such a clean little girl! I don't where she learned this, but if there is food in a bowl...this is what happens.
The boys were opening the back door at my parents' house, and Poppa was pretending they were bonking him in the head. As you can see, Carter and Landon were laughing so hard!
Here's some little cheeseballs eating cheeseballs. Last week had a couple of chilly days, so we dug out the sweaters (hopefully) one last time. They looked awfully cute though!
Oops. Out of order again. Here's another one of the out-of-control laughing boys. Their giggles were making the rest of us laugh!
I love this picture. Avery is so nice to her puppy. She gives the best pets to Lane.
It actually turned out not to be a terrible day. The boys thought it was perfect for throwing snowballs at Poppa. They chased him all over the yard that day!
Here's my big boy showing how old he is now. He's pretty excited about being 3. He really liked this new turtle shirt that Grandma found too.
We had the Swansons over on Monday night for cake. They couldn't make it to Carter's birthday party on Sunday so it was a nice visit. Here's Madisyn, Carter, Mason, and Avery chowing down on some leftover Lightning McQueen cake.
Mason gave Avery a nice hug right when he got there. They are such cute kids. I still can't believe how blond they both are!
Last but not least, all the kids playing with Carter's CARS color changing set. He absolutely loves that thing. He looks very proud that everyone else likes it too!
