Spring is finally here and Matthew and I took a walk to celebrate. The blossoms on the trees and bushes are so bright and cheery. Check out how these blossoms match Matthew's sweat shirt.

The one thing Nicholas and Holden wanted to do during Spring break was have a day where he could stay home. They really are Joe's sons. So while the party poopers stayed home on Wednesday, Matthew and I headed to the Springfield Museums to see a puppet show. His friend Jacob and his mom came to watch it with us.
Aunt Karen gave the boys some fun kites for Easter. They have had a really good time flying them. Nicholas and Matthew played with them while Holden was at soccer practice. The first day everything went great.
The second day was perfectly breezy day. Then Nicholas's kite got got in a tree. He gave up right away, but Joe didn't. He took two sticks and bound them together with vines he found on the ground. And it worked. We saved the kite.

We headed off the the Quabbin Resevoir on the second day of spring break with some friends from church. It was a beautiful day and we really enjoyed it.
|Here are all the kiddos right when we arrived.|
|This is the back side of the dam. The kids were running right up it. The ground was soggy.|
|Waiting for the slow visiting moms.|
|I wish I could take credit for this beautiful photo, but Marcia took it.|
|The kids found a great field to play frisbee.|
There were loads of trails along the streams. It was fun to explore and be out in such nice weather.
On the way home we stopped at McDonalds and used our free ice cream cone coupons.
Holden gave his ice cream horns.
Matthew made his into a chair.
Three cheers for no school!

Anders see a wonderful therapist named Alice. She has been so very helpful. She is an art therapist which of course is perfect for Anders, who is so artisitc. He made this during one of his sessions and ask Alice to take a picture so he could always remember it. It is a face. The holes of the scissors are the eyes, the blue play dough is the mouth, and the yellow plastic sticking out are the teeth. His name is Doodle.
