True Smiles

It's always refreshing to capture Ethan's real smiles.  Too often I'm asking him to pose for the camera and like most kids, I get that forced smile. But these pictures definitely show his true smile, he didn't even know I was taking them.
We were parked at his school waiting for class to start, as were a few of his classmates.  A couple of them popped their heads out of their sunroof so I figured it wouldn't hurt to let him join in the fun.  He was feeling pretty cool up there saying hi to his buddies.  Ahhh, to be a kid again!

Gold dolphins, FLY, Shoulder rides, Easter and more!

Ethan wanted to know why the makers of Goldfish didn't branch out a little, so he wrote and mailed them a letter.  They sent him a form letter and a 50 cent coupon, so boo! for Pepperidge Farms.  He worked hard on his little letter.  

We finally took the front off Alec's bed, so it's a hotspot for the boys to play now.  They can often be found in here hopping on his bed together.

 Cool dudes in their handsome shirts.

We enjoyed a couple lovely days of weather last week and took a couple walks in the neighborhood.  The boys can take shoulder breaks if their legs get tired.  They're never too old for a ride.

On another nice day last weekend, we drove up to the Plaza for lunch and a couple stores.  Superhero's are still popular in our house, and it's not uncommon for one of the boys to have on a costume wherever we go (I gave that fight up a long time ago).  Alec liked getting some attention from strangers but Ethan was quick to tell everyone that he was not the real batman.

Bunny Loot

Easter day was gorgeous, so we went to a park Nick stumbled upon.  Beth brought over some Oklahoma Joe's for lunch and we had a few egg hunts throughout the day.  It was a nice relaxing day.

Right after this picture Ethan whispered to me that he thought the bunny was a fake because he could see someone's eyes behind the bunny's eyes.  And why wasn't he blinking? Ha! I told him I didn't get close enough to notice but was pretty sure he was legit.
