Luke as King of the Wood Pile.

Andrew loves to color and draw and
he's pretty good...for a 4 year old.

Olivia, Luke, Andrew and Zane (Spiderman)
with their Easter Baskets and bunnies.
The kids got a little jipped this year since Mom
started a new part time job as the Liturgy/ Music Coordinator
at 2 Catholic Churches--right before Holy Week and Easter.

In February we went to Florida to visit G & G Bonifas.
Sporting our new sunglasses at Tampa Lowry Zoo.
Rated #1 by...somebody...Parent's Magazine I think.
We got in FREE with our Toledo Zoo Membership :)

Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, FL. Zane stayed out of the
waves and played in the sand.

Andrew, Zane and Luke at Lake Louisa Florida
State Park. We went walking with Grandma Dorothy
and Grandpa George. Great to just be outside.

Boys doing dishes. Watch out!
Luke has the spray nozzle....

We had a lot of fun carving pumpkins. Don't worry, the kids did the scooping, we did the carving.
Andrew was the last to go and so Zane and Luke had to assist.

OOO...Dirty hands from scoopin' out the seeds.

Zane was taking his job seriously.

Olivia did really well.

Andrew had a Handy Manny cake. Olivia prefers the ice cream.

Luke is driving the gator. Andrew is shot gun with
Olivia and Zane in the back. The humidity
has made Olivia's hair so curly!
TADA!! It's stained..finally. Mark worked really hard
and we had lots of help.

Olivia rubbing the lion cub's belly at the Toledo Zoo.
We celebrated the house being done by going
to the zoo this past weekend.

We were cleaning up the yard and piling up pieces of
leftover wood on the firewood pile. The gator came in
really handy. The boys worked really hard.
We went to the Toledo Zoo and had lots of fun.
This picture is for Grandma Joan who hates snakes.

Luke and Zane helping to push the Gator and Andrew
up a little hill. Team work. Team work.

Playing Grocery Store is so much fun! Zane asked me if they could
use real food from the pantry to put in the shopping cart. I agreed and later
heard Luke say, "Is this on sale?" Zane's reply was, "It's on my list."
The flashlight Zane is hanging up was the 'beeper' and Luke was the Beeper Lady!
Olivia was handing Luke the groceries and Andrew was the bag boy.
The past weeks we have been busy staining the exterior of the house.
No, Zane is not really staining! He's only in training to help in another 4-5 years.
He wanted to be on scaffolding like Daddy and
he even paints with this tongue sticking out-like Mark.
Zane and Andrew liked putting water in buckets and using a little brush to help 'stain.'

Photo taken at Hocking Hills-Old Man's Cave. Luke got his hands in the water
every chance he had. Here, he climbed out on a limb so he could splash around.
