Maddie finally gave her dad the okay to let go of the bike and she took off! I can't believe how grown up she is! Good Job Maddie!!!

|Make a postcard - it's easy!|
Yesterday Maddie's preschool took a field trip to American Western Heritage Center. It's an old fashioned farm. The kids got to hold and touch many of the baby animals and learn a lot about them. Garen tagged along of course, and he enjoyed chasing the chickens! It was a bit rainy and cold during the field trip, but it really warmed up later.
I had a bunch of kids playing in my backyard. They were having a great time doing tricks down the slide. Garen learned how to go down head first and we had a few kids fall of the top! Does anyone want to send their kids over to play at my place? :) Don't worry no one got hurt to badly.-

So Andy had to buzz his hair to even everything up! I hope it grows back soon! I like his shaggy hair.

Today is Andy's dad's 50th birthday!!! He is such a great person, dad, and grandfather, I hope we have him around for another 50!
Also today, my sister came for a visit with her two kids (same ages as my kids). Maddie loved her time with her cousin and I enjoyed my time with my sister! Thanks for coming Sara!

This is Grandma Vonnie singing to Maddie last time we went for a visit-
On that same day it was my sister-in-law, Amber's birthday. I will be following in her footsteps of hitting the big 25 here soon. And last by not least, again on the same day it was Andy's grandma Margaret's birthday.
We went out to Clarkston and had a yummy dinner and cake and Ice cream to celebrate! Grandma and Amber, the birthday girls-
Andy and his Grandpa-
Jann and the 3 grandkids- (I love the look on baby Levi's face-he's just waiting for Maddie to pop up and make him laugh)-

This morning me and my friend Brenda ran a 5K (actually this one was 3.3 miles) race. It was in support of the Family Support Center and child abuse awareness. It felt great when I was done, but some of those Wellsville hills were killers! Thanks for stick'en with me Brenda!
Andy brought the kids out to watch us finish the race and they got to play at the park for awhile.
The happy laughter of Garen swinging-

Since it is Maddie's Spring Break from Preschool and ballet this week, we've tried to come up with some fun things to do. Today we met some friends at the fun park.
Garen, for some reason is terrified of the play tubes and tube slides (like the ones at McDonalds) so he didn't like it very much-and is was his nap time. But Maddie had a great time with Jacob!
Garen, Maddie, Danny, and Jacob-
Garen stuck with driving the cars-

Today was finally a nice day outside! And even better Andy was home. So we took the kids to the park this morning. Maddie loves this park because of the fun hiking trail. We even saw three deer on our hike! They were to quick for me to get a picture of them.
After an hour or so at the park we took the kids to McDonalds for lunch (a rare occasion). It was such a nice day together.
Later this evening, my little soccer team (including Maddie) had practice. It was so much fun and the kids are so entertaining! Maddie did really well even though she is the smallest one on the team. I didn't get any pictures of her because I was to busy trying to coach 10 five year olds.
After soccer practice I got to go play church Futsol (indoor soccer). It was such a blast! But I am definitely ready to go to bed now! I hope everyone else is enjoying some nice weather!

Also this week we got some new neighbors! Maddie loves that she has 3 new girls to play with next door. They are a cute little family, but I cannot pronounce any of their names!
