Farm Fun

It has been raining lately. A lot. Fortunately, the weather cleared for a day so Evelyn's preschool class could enjoy a day at Round Hill Park. Brandon was able to join in the fun, too.

The kids checked out the animals, including some goats, cows, horses and a big pig. They even got to feed the ducks and geese. Evelyn spent much of the morning holding her nose (it was a little smelly) and Brandon showed off his mooing skills. Then everyone took a turn on the slide and swings at the farm playground.

Mia Hamm's Records Appear Safe

Evy played in her first official soccer match today.
First Soccer Game!

She had a lot of fun being part of the green team. She ran around a bit, kicked the ball a few times, ate some of the halftime snack and cheered for her teammates.

Evelyn was concerned about one thing - the condition of the pitch (and the condition of her cleats). It was pretty muddy out there.

Maybe her aggressiveness, competitiveness and goal scoring prowess will be awakened with a drier field and some nicer weather next weekend. More from Evy's first soccer game is on Flickr.

April Fools

Evelyn couldn't wait to unveil tonight's dessert. Sponge cake. A new recipe.

It actually looked pretty good. I could tell she took some time with the icing, and who doesn't want a piece of cake after dinner?

Sponge Cake

It was a little tough to cut through. Plus, there was a lot of giggling coming from everyone else at the table. You see, it was an actual sponge. A couple of them.

April fools!
