A Day At The Parks

Evelyn enjoyed the recent heat wave and managed to get in a little more outside fun before the return of the cold weather. After preschool she went to the park for a picnic lunch and some climbing on the playground apparatus.

Later in the day she went leaves jumping at a different park.

Let's do it again in May.

Behind the Scenes

You may have seen a few of Brandon's Thursday pictures. Since he was born on a Thursday, we're taking a photo of him every week to watch him grow.

What you haven't seen is what's happening in the background while these pictures are being taken...

Behind the Scenes 1

Big sister Evy loves to be around her little brother. She talks to him and gives him kisses and tries to make sure he's happy. Brandon loves it too. He smiles and coos at her whenever she's around.

Which, as you can tell, is a majority of the time. We know that she just wants to show affection to the little guy. But we're going to have to get him a suit of armor (or bubble wrap) at some point.

Field Trip

Evelyn's preschool class went on a field trip to Trax Farms yesterday. They took a behind the scenes tour of the store which included the wall of bees, the refrigerator room and the apple washing machine.

Then the kids listened to a presentation about all different kinds of gourds before taking a hayride around the farm.

The field trip finished up with a snack of an apple and three cups of fresh cider.

She had a great time and even got to bring home a small pumpkin. What a fun way to spend a Thursday morning.

Garbage Pals

Over the past year Evelyn has become friends with our garbage man, J.R. They greeted each other every Monday morning with a wave, and he would honk the horn as his truck pulled away. He said that Evy was the only girl on his route that would say hi.

Unfortunately, J.R. is moving to an office position with his company and won't be stopping by our house anymore. The new guy waved to Evy on his first Monday but didn't honk the horn.

He has a lot to learn.

Band of Evys

Evelyn finally got the whole band together for a practice (it can be difficult with their rock star schedules). They started rehearsals for the upcoming Band of Evys Endless Energy World Tour.

Can you imagine really having three Evys running around the house? Oh, my...
