Happy Easter: Part 2!!

We hope everyone had a great holiday. Today Myles woke up eager to see what the Easter Bunny brought him. After patiently waiting for Kirk to go downstairs and get the camera ready, he came down to see the goods. A NEW BIKE!!!! He, unfortunately, wasn't as thrilled as Kirk and I were. Instead he had a look of terror on his face. Once he warmed up to the idea of this cool new bike, he couldn't wait to take it for a spin around the house. The Easter Bunny, however, was not so generous to poor Eamon. He only got a t-shirt and a new cup. Maybe next year he will smile when he has his picture taken with him.
Later in the day we had a nice Easter dinner here at the house with Kirk's mom, Barry and his brother's family. After dinner, the kids went on a treasure hunt to find the goodies the Easter Bunny left for everyone. Sidewalk chalk, Play-Doh, bubbles, a Hot Wheels and a Frisbie. Once again, Eamon got shafted and only got the Hot Wheels which he is too little to play with.

The town of Durham held their annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday from 10:00 to 10:01. Unfortunately, we arrived at 10:02 and missed the egg hunt portion of it. Myles was disappointed for a moment but cheered up when he saw the table of Munchkins, the fire engine and the ambulance. After grabbing as many Munchkins as he could he was off to check out the town vehicles. His dreams came true when he was able sit in the ambulance and the fire truck. Meanwhile, Eamon watched in awe of his cool big brother. He then was forced to have his picture taken with the Easter Bunny.

Sunny Day

Today Myles, Eamon and I enjoyed one of the few sunny days we see in April. After picking up Myles from school, we headed home to begin the fun. We hit golf balls, played in the sandbox, went for a walk down to the stream to throw rocks and did a little yard work.

I'm Tiger Woods, you're Tiger Woods

I'm Tiger Woods, you're Tiger Woods

Myles likes to call himself various names while playing sports. While playing hockey his name is Johhny Skater or Johnny Goalie, Nascar racing he is Jean Jeanne and for baseball he calls himself Ryan Drew. The other piece of it is that if you're playing with him you have to go by that name too. Well, today we were both Tiger Woods minus the big money prize.
