Loving the Sunshine

The sun has come out to play the last couple of days so I've taken advantage of it we have gone out to play too. We went to Russell Road Park yesterday. Here are some photo's to prove that there is sun in Seattle.
Little picnic to give us some energy to play!
Joseph showing off his guns.
Elizabeth...she didn't like the swing.
Her new snazzy shoes. She had to learn how to walk all over again! She loooooved the park though. She screamed a lot when we had to go.
Connor is a great climber.
Joseph looks so much like his Nelson cousins here.
I called this the 'chromosome'. Spencer had a difficult time getting up this thing at first, but I told him he wasn't allowed to say "I can't" and that he needed to practice. Within a half hour he had it mastered! That's my boy! With his hypermobility, he has a much more difficult time climbing etc, but he is really doing well.
We happened upon this little pirate ship park on the walk we went on after playing in the park. So, they got 2 parks in one day! Sweet!
My best attempt to get a group photo. I took about 5 and this is the closest I could get to seeing everyones face.
Before we left the boys had to draw in their Nature Notebooks.
Little Miss passed out at the pirate park. It was a great day!

Lately we...

Built a volcano out of homemade clay for science. We named it Mt. Vesuvius 2.
Celebrated Grandpa Nelson's 80th birthday!

Went to Costco and ate giant hotdogs.

Connor really likes Costco hotdogs.
Ate donuts from Krispie Kreme..(this is a chocolate Fling)
And a little toe jam too. (o:
Finally...we watched cartoons on our Directv.
That about sums up our life. Simple but wonderful. We have started a new math program and it is going wonderfully. That's about it.
Oh yah! I also enjoy wearing my Muggle shirt around and either getting funny looks or thumbs up from the cool people that get it. (o:
