Field Trip II

Evelyn's preschool class just finished up a few weeks of learning about farm animals with a field trip to Round Hill Park and Exhibit Farm to see some real farm animals up close.

Well, not too close...
As Close As She'll Get

Evy almost got within a few feet of a giant pig, a brand new lamb, and a boisterous chicken.

After the farm tour was over all of the kids went up to the playground. Even Brandon was allowed to get in on the fun.

A Light Push

Everyone had a great morning at the farm!

Paleontological Exploration

In other words - we visited the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

Siblings by the Giant Turtle

Evelyn had a great time researching prehistoric life. She saw huge dinosaur skeletons, excavated fossils, touched a snakeskin, and held a baby apatosaurus skull. She even crawled inside a life-size replica of a whale's heart. It had a TV in it.

Brandon wore a dinosaur sweatshirt while he rode around in his stroller and smiled at everyone.

Spring Break

We took advantage of a break in Evy's preschool schedule and did some visiting. The kids had fun hanging out with family and friends, hitting the playground and taking a train ride. A real train ride.
Another Engine

We finished out the week with a special day for Brandon. He was baptized in the same church as Steph and Evelyn.

Opening Day

Today was opening day in Pittsburgh and the smallest fans were ready to root, root, root for the home team.

Opening Day - Evy

Opening Day - Brandon

The Pirates beat the Dodgers this afternoon and are tied with St. Louis atop the NL Central. For now. They only need 81 more victories this year to break their active streak of 17 seasons without a winning record!

The kids don't care about about all the losing (although, of course, it's a shame). They just want to dress up in black and gold and wear a baseball glove around the house.

Let's go Bucs!

Happy Easter!

Brandon's first Easter was filled with marshmallow peeps, chocolate bunnies and jelly beans - for Evy. He did like playing with the plastic eggs, though. And getting dressed up with his big sister.
