Many of you know or have read about Boyd's affection for Lobsters. Since he was two he has talked about working with them or having them as a pet. Well, the love runs deep. Saturday night we went out to a nicer Italian restaurant and the waitress made the mistake of telling us the special of the day was lobster risotto with blah blah blah. I then asked Adam, what was with the risotto? Ok so maybe this is all my fault, and Adam replied well it's a lobster risotto with xy and z. Suddenly Boyd's face dropped and he started bawling over the lobster risotto on the menu because they must have killed the lobsters. It took a while for him to calm down and he told the waitress not to sell anyone the lobster risotto special that night. Family and friends you have been warned. Please do not order lobster anything in from of our son. He'll probably be a vegetarian for life.
On a totally different note Boyd had his first hit off the pitching machine during a game Saturday on a cold and damp day. He also survived his first go around as catcher although he didn't really move.
Lastly, Boyd pulled a fast one on his teachers last week telling them he wasn't supposed to open his surgery eye because they put glue like drops in it to keep it shut. He said he told them that I had said not to open it. I was appalled when I picked him up from school and it was closed but today his teachers and I had a good laugh over it.

|Just climbing a tree in the grocery store parking lot|
|No fishing from this dock so we enjoyed feeding the fish leftover lunch.|
|Driving range action|
|Friday was Boyd's school dance. He was the perfect date. He picked out his vest from Ethiopia to look fancy, gelled his hair, and sang and danced the night away. Of course we hit up our new neighborhood fro yo place on the way home too.|
|Prior to getting dressed up he had to get filthy while adventuring in the new part of the neighborhood.|
|Pre surgery. He kept the checkmark on for two days.|
|Our dear friend Yihunlish brought us back some traditional Ethiopian dress clothes so we had to model them for the camera. They are handmade and just beautiful.|

|Our seed starter set. Carrots, beans, watermelon, cucumber, basil, tomatoes, cilantro, and lettuce.|
|It is all growing quickly.|
|He drew the earth and was pointing out where Indonesia is located. We need to find a globe soon. He is very into learning his states right now too and is really enjoying the game Scrambled States of America.|

Well, we had a few days of Spring weather for Spring Break followed by some chilly and rainy days. We made the most of the nice weather by showing our dear friend Amanda some of the local beauty. She hadn't seen us in two years. Then came the doctors appointment and library days and a trip to the bounce house. Making the most of our days off.
|First pick was Locust Shade Park. Boyd wanted to mini golf and do the fitness trail. Here he is in common form running down the trail.|
|New tree down across the trail. Of course we should climb it.|
|He still loves himself some sticks.|
|Rope swing or climb|
|Pull up station|
|Another stretching station|
|Giving us the look. It was like he should have been doing an advertisement for this one.|
|Sneaking in some bike riding upon returning home.|
|Day two was Government island. Glad we remembered the boots.|
|One of the higher points.|
|This area is part of the quarry where they retrieved the stone for the White House and Capitol|
|Any excuse to climb|
|Day 3 Stafford Civil War Park for a picnic and exploration. Can you see a new friend?|
