A lot of fun was had at the sugar bush last weekend. It was a gorgeous day - a bit chilly, but the sun was shining brightly!
This is is a picture of my sister going down the slide with Christos. Notice her look of fear? That's because she was out of control on the slide. And I think she sort of forgot that she was actually holding Christos, because he did not do well going down this slide! Even though he is smiling in the picture - a few seconds later there were tears. And a very hurt ankle. See his foot, all the way up there? Yup, that explains it!
And see how happy he is in this picture? That's because his very own excavator liscense came in the mail! Just for him! He was very proud of this, and wore it around his neck all day. (Shh, don't say anything, but his dad made this and even put it in the mailbox for him!)
And well, this picture is just too darn cute not to share! Dimitry all smiles after bath time.
Easter was a lot of fun. I wrote an Easter post a little while back, so I won't get into it again. I will say that we had a fabulous time with all our family, and yes, we did consume a lot of food. And very yummy lamb. The weather was pefection and the boys were outside playing all day long. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend!
I tried to get a great picture of the two boys together, but it was very difficult.
This was the conversation, more or less:
Me: "Christos, please sit beside Dimitry so I can take a picture of you two."
Me: "Please hon, it will only take a second."
Me: "Christos look over here, Oh my GOD look at the size of that spider on Gina's head, Oh my God look here look here look here look here look here!"
Christos: Looking bored.
Me: "I'll give you a hundred bucks if you just sit beside Dimitry and smile."
I eventually got a half decent picture of the two of them. On a rusty old swing-set, no less... Does everyone have as hard a time as I do trying to get their children to smile for the camera?
