Desert wildflower season!

We had a beautiful day at the az Sonora desert museum today. Amazing wildflowers this year! And look at this big boys! 

And here is a familiar snarl from this little boy who is a great example of the "terrible threes"...

We also saw several hummingbird nests in the hummingbird exhibit. Amazing! There are about the size of a walnut shell.

Noah's school had a running fundraiser this morning. I had a great time watching him do 11 laps on the little circuit and try to catch kids running by to mark their numbers with a sharpie for every lap. This little boy is going to sleep well tonight!

Spring break lake

At laughlin's lake Mohave. I had no idea there were such pretty beaches there!

Above, Wes with his "boats".

A shot of the pretty beach. On those walls people carve lots of graffiti. Here were my favorites:

Happy spring!

Laughlin spring break

A lovely spring break so far with all the retired folks in Laughlin. We've been enjoying the river walks and desert hikes!

My Little Cook

Yikes I'm so far behind on posting! We took the boys backpacking a couple of weeks ago and I will share those pictures. For now, a few cooking projects with my little kitchen helper.

Here, he's making Alfredo using my grandma's recipe. There was a little setback when I had to leave the room and he continued on his own, dumping the Parmesan into a bowl of broccoli. But we fished it all out.

Yes, I even let him stir it on the stove. He's very careful (at least when I remind him every thirty seconds).

And here he is again, this time making some healthy "cookies". They were just ground oats, mushed bananas, and chocolate chips. They turned out pretty good!
