Spring break and a week beyond

With mom in Boston Marathon prep and our extended Winter weather, Spring break wasn't exactly a barrel of fun and excitement but we took time to smile and enjoy, even if that meant going to the high school parking lot and letting Boyd "drive". 

The Easter bunny left over 100 eggs for Boyd to find. This one was in a STEM project from school. it held 300 pieces of popcorn perfectly.

The loot!

A special hat in his Easter basket.

The 3rd grade received cabbage plants two days before break. I planted Boyd's outside in the garden but we babysat two others and then ended up bringing Boyd's back inside due to the below freezing temps.

Day outing to Fairfax. We stopped to play mini golf on the way up. Let me also note that several days before we played mini golf as a family and I actually won.

Not the ocean or water park but a Rec center with a slide was a good consolation prize. 

I cleaned the storage room and was going to throw these curtains away but held onto them only to have Boyd come barreling up the steps the next day carrying them and pronouncing them a great tool to create a fort. 

A boy and his Turtley.

Breakfast when mom was away helping at a race.

My shoe shipment arrived and Boyd took a pair, put it on, declared them his and ran down the street. We can now share shoes.

Boyd has been asking for months maybe years to add color to his hair. After a haircut I folded. This is the before.

During. Love our neighbor who does hair. 

After. He was so proud and excited. I don't get it but I figured, maybe he will get it out of his system while I still have some control over how much color, etc. 

Such a busy kid these days with both basketball and baseball. Boyd tried out to play on a 3rd grade team with his amazing coach from Winter. We couldn't pass on the opportunity as the coach is every parents dream and will develop the athlete. 

First day of kids pitch baseball. Lots of walks according to Adam.
