After months and months of nothing but rain, we have finally had a few days of sunshine around here. Just a few, though. In addition to our normal activities, we travelled to the coast for a weekend with my family, spent a day at the Chinese Gardens, celebrated Easter, and visited the Tulip Farm. There are so many pictures that we thought we would split the rest of the month's pictures into two posts and share just the pictures with a few comments.
Digging in the sand at Netarts (Oregon coast). Madelyn has grown up so much since our first visit to the coast when she hardly knew what to do with the sand and almost blew over in the wind.
Getting ready for the circle song in Toddler Tunes class. We now sing the songs from that class at every opportunity. Mommy and Daddy wake up with them going through their heads. Daddy's current 3 am song: “Wake me, shake me, don't let me sleep too late!” Mama's song: “Why oh why oh why, are the birdies in the sky? Up so high, in the sky, why oh why oh why?”
Showing Mama how to use all of the musical instruments. The drums are a favorite. Madelyn is learning that practically anything at home can be a drum! The drum song? “We play and we play and we play and we stop!” (Sometimes its hard to remember the stopping part though, and sometimes we get so distracted by watching the other toddlers that we stop when we are still supposed to be playing.)
