Tyler loves sharing a party with his mom :)
Good thing he got his own too. He partied in the "fast lane" with some bowling and pizza for his 9th birthday. Scheduling his party around Memorial Day weekend is always tricky, but he has some great friends who were sure to be there and made it a fun celebration.

I realized that in my last session of mass-posting, I left out Easter pictures. I wish there was a way to edit the order of your blog posts. I guess it really doesn't matter, only to "obsessive-me" who now has to be bothered that the posts aren't truly chronological. Regardless, we had a wonderful Easter and some really handsome boys that should get posted about, out-of-order or not. Easter is one of those really special holidays, the only "Sunday" holiday, that seems to hold it's meaning and purpose. Sure, we do the candy and egg hunts that the kids love - but I love that my kids seem to truly understand the reason we celebrate. Bo brought home an Easter lesson from preschool the previous week and was so excited to share it with all of his. He did an amazing job of describing the events around the crusifixion and ressurection. We watched "He is Risen" and I showed the kids my pictures of the garden tomb and holy lands from when I went to Jerusalem with my family as a teenager. The loved seeing the pictures and had a lot of questions. It was just an enjoyable, wonderful, peaceful day. And, any Sunday where we get to have our Dad home more is great.
It took some coaxing to get Luke to put down his plastic Egg for a picture...
