Jacobs Garden

We cut down and pulled up some bushes along the side of our garage so we could plant a vegetable garden.  We planted beets, carrots, spinach, lettuce, tomatoes, yellow cherry tomatoes, zucchini, red, green and yellow peppers, corn, green beans, sweet peas, strawberries and lots of herbs (some in planters). Yes, that is MAdeline and Ellie, they are wearing some fun wigs our friends gave us.

Spring Break, Passover and Easter...

On Saturday we enjoyed a lovely Seder dinner at our dear friend Susan's home. On Sunday after church - the Easter bunny came, the girls are still young enough to enjoy a good egg hunt! Ellie lost a tooth - and now LOOKS like the Easter bunny.  Later that evening, we had Easter dinner at the Thatchers. Wonderful weekend.

Spring Break....Thus far...

Unlike last Spring break, where we spent most of it swimming at the beach - this year was cold, even with some snow flurries! But I think we where able to make the most of it.
Day 1: was awfully cold and rainy. We spent most of the day inside at our friends the Dominies where we watched Bolt and played Poly Pockets. 
Day 2: Spent the morning at the Chiropractors getting adjusted. Had another Dr.'s apt, and Madeline had a playdate, that evening the girls had their photos taken.

Day 3: Bronx zoo. Wednesdays are free- or pay what you want, but it was chilly, with some rain and snow flurries - so the zoo wasn't too crowded and that was nice. If we kept on moving and thanks to Aunt Julies "Kuhl" jackets we were able to stay warm - enough. the girls got to ride their first camel, see a baby giraffe, and lion cub, they also had their first lesson on the BIRDS AND THE BEES when 2 monkeys decided to get busy, right in FRONT of the glass!! - I was to shocked to catch THAT one on film!

Sunny Sunday...Palm Sunday

After the first session of General Conference, Ellie had a "great idea" to sunbathe. The girls got on their swimsuits and enjoyed the beautiful day.

Bloomfields Spring Spectacular

Our town had its Easter party on saturday. During Conference sessions we went, and had fun... except for the parking ticket.

Madeline (basket head) can't stay away from the piano!

My two beautiful girls!!
