Saturday, April 18th. . .When I picked up Lindsay today from her lessons, this is what I found. My daughter in the barn, sitting in the stacks of hay, soaking wet (from the sprinklers), eating a carrot with one hand, and in the other hand, tiny yellow flowers.  
I think the horses are just part of the fun. . . 

The kids love to go get frozen yogurt, especially when they can make their own creations.
Ryan was home with a fever today,  hopefully it will only last 24 hours. . . poor guy.

The kids went through their stuffed animals today and each gave Justin one.  Instead of giving to charity, they gave to their brother, who has been asking mom for more stuffed animals lately.  Not wanting to purchase any more, this seemed like a reasonable solution.  The older kids have sooo many.  Mr. Owl was donated by Ryan.

Justin wanted to show "Mr. Owl" the sunset.
(Later, we showed him the moon.)

sorry about that previous comment, it was so disoriented. Josie was helping find the "abc's" and helping me type.
I bet lindsay is really getting good at horse back riding. It looks like she enjoys more than the horses. That picture of Justin, Mr. Owl, and the sunset is beautiful.
Oh, and we love any treat time too, espcially when you get to decorate it yourself.

I love that picture of Lindsay withthe carrot, she is totally in her element! A new self-serve yogurt place just opened in the plaza by Barnes and Noble. I can't stay away.
Your blog looks great. I don't know how you can get so many pictures on each post, I can only do 4 at a time. You'll have to tell me how you do it..
