Jack, Sam and I spent some time along the pond at the park across from Sam's school. He was content to throw things into it but grabbed what he thought was a rock and said "Ewwwww!" I took a look and told him to drop it as it was old dried up dog poo. He then took a few more steps and pointed to a dog pile that had turned green and solemnly announced: "That is frog poop....frog's poop green". ... and walked away.We washed hands when we got home.
Obviously the frog/dog does not have issue of pooing in public!! :)

But, what is that??? A bird flew back...and then left again..OH CRAP!! This is what I saw outside my window...you know what that means. Those dang birds are building a bird's nest in our gutters!! Darn it! This means that we (JB) needs to go up there and get rid of it BEFORE it lays eggs! Then you know if they build it once in a place, they will build it again in the same place. So now we will have to keep our eye on the area and I haven't looked, but you know they "leave" their mark with white stuff all over...spring isn't so beautiful right now...

Sam and Roo getting ready to go outside for the Easter egg hunt at my mom's. She hid about 58 eggs. Jack was to find the green, pink and orange ones. Sam was to find the blue, purple and yellow ones. If you listened closely, you could hear Jack under his breath chanting, "Green, pink, orange. Green, pink, orange..."
After the hunt, Aunt helped the boys count their eggs and find out if they missed any by checking it with the "master" list. The boys did pretty well...they only missed four!

Sam went there for dinner the one night and later told me... "MOM, Nanny (my mom) MADE MAC N' CHEESE ALL BY HERSELF!" Oh...(yee) I thought...she makes mac n' cheese all the time. So I say in my best chef knowingness, "Oh, did you have shells and cheese or Kraft?" (two of my specialties, by the way.) Sam looks at me like my head just spun around. "NO! SHE MADE MAC N' CHEESE ALL BY HERSELF!! She... didn't...have...a....... BOX!! It was the BEST ever!!" Oh. I thought to myself again. HOMEMADE mac n' cheese. Just great.
So, Sam came Monday, which is his night to pick dinner, and asked, "Remember when Nanny made me mac n' cheese without a box, do you think we could have that tonight?"
Honestly, several thoughts went through my head at once...NO (was the first), go to your Nanny's (was my 2nd) and then last of all...How the hell would you make something like that and why would you want to make that when you can get it from a box? But, I kindly replied, "Well, I will have to try to find a recipe for that." (but, please DO NOT send me any recipes.)
So, just want to say, Thanks to my mom for setting the bar so high! And could you let me know when you are having "real" mac n' cheese so Sam can have it for dinner?
