Trip to the Dentist

Boy #1 has his first cavity and boy #2 needs to stop sucking his thumb. Any suggestions? They went to the dentist a few weeks ago and they love the cool sunglasses they get to wear. They also love the balloon animals they get to take home.

For now the weather is beautiful and the forsythia are in full bloom. Seeing the bright yellow bushes makes me happy. Rain is in the forecast again but I will enjoy the weather today.

Young at Heart

Last week we left the kids with a sitter and headed off to a rock concert. The big city has some great venues these days were you can get really close to the band. We saw a not so good opening band, but then Spoon made up for that. When we first heard Spoon was coming we debated going, but I'm glad we did. It was great and I felt like a teenager again staying out til 1 a.m. I discovered that the sound is not so good on the video phone, but you can get the gist from the following clip. I also think the bass guitarist strangely looks like Jason Bateman, who I have a mild crush on.

This song was released when I was training for the marathon, so I was constantly singing it on my runs

This is what we woke up to on Easter morning. When will it really be spring? Later in the day boy #1 lost the second of his two front teeth. By the end of the day most of the snow melted and it was time for an Easter egg hunt with the neighbors.

We had a bunny and a dog at our egg hunt
