Travis is working on potty training so he can go to preschool in the fall. | March has come and also some stories and not the kind Frank can read to the boys. Travis doesn't like the car seat any more. From the back seat we hear "James, James. Let me out. Let me out. James!" James was smart enough to tell him no.

31: April 16th was Frank's birthday. He celebrated with the Sheldon's and had some yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Saturday Frank & Molly went to the Sounders game. The Sounders were kind of asleep in my opinion for most of the game. They would give up passes and wait for the ball to come to them. At the end of play time there was 4 min. of outage time and about 2 min into it I was just going to say to Frank lets go to beat the crowd. Just as I had that thought they scored a goal! Go figure. We then went out for dinner/ lunch at Red Robin before picking the boys up from moms.
32: April 24, 2010 The boys dressed themselves and looked cute so I had Frank grab the camera to take some picture. James was not in the mood for a picture so we didn't get a full body shot of him in his yellow rubber boots, one leg tucked in and the other over the boot, a hoodie sweat coat with a hat on top of it. He was proud of himself and we are proud of them too.
33: May 11, 2010 -West Seattle dinner on the water. The boys had fun looking for shells and playing on the beach. Nana fed the birds and the sunset was beautiful. We had a nice evening and the boys were tired by the time we stared to head home around 7:30.
34: May 12, 2010 Time outside with bubbles were a treat for the boys. The pictures show the magic of bubbles in their eyes. I love these boys.
35: May 15, 2010 3 days before this sunny day Travis was outside in a sweater. Good old Washington. We all can rejoice when the sun comes out around here after a long winter.
36: May 16, 2010 A Sunday drive can be a great time to enjoy what we have been blessed with and reflect on it. We all walked along the beach and tossed rocks into the water, climbed logs and had a wonderful time. It was one of those times where everyone is enjoying it and you hate to leave. The kids had fun on the tire swing. Dad led us in a game of bochie ball. We built a fire on the beach without matches. It smelled so good. Beach fires make me think of the 4th of July. Mom and dad would bring us there for the 4th while we were growing up. Ahh memories We all can't wait to go back.
