79 of 366 | Saturday morning. We kicked off spring break with waffles, pajamas, and bed head. Although, I forgot about the waffles in the oven and they were hard as rocks, which is even more hilarious because I really do know how to cook. Oops.

81 of 366 | Headed to Power Play as one of our spring break staycation activities. The boys are still young enough to be perfectly happy pretending to play the games. And we are perfectly happy to not spend all of the money!

82 of 366 | There is pretty much only one subject that can produce laughs like this around here.

83 of 366 | All three in the frame doing their thing. Exactly how I prefer it.

71 of 366 | Despite the fact that we miss Nikita the polar bear since he moved to NC, we still start every single trip to the zoo with a visit to Berlin. She may not be as flashy as Nikita is, but the middle still loves seeing her just as much. And he’s figured out where his best vantage point is for a chance to spot her.

73 of 366 | I may have woken him up and told him to throw on his hoodie and shoes for this.

73-366

74 of 366 | He has sensory issues and he hates being dirty. He gets OT to help him not have a sensory meltdown in response. Today he wanted to peel the cutie himself. And I captured the messy details. A victory.

74-366

75 of 366 | Today’s agenda included voting in the primaries and ice cream. But I may have arrived an hour before the ice cream place even opened. So we headed to the park instead. Still a successful day!

75-366

76 of 366 | The other day my speech delayed middle told me “Okay, I go get ice cream!” It is the longest sentence I have ever heard him say. So we celebrated with ice cream. Or rather fro-yo.

64 of 366 | This dude turns four in five days. So we bought some balloons to kick off celebrating. He popped all of them within an hour. Oh, and polar bear came along to help pick out the balloons.

64-366

65 of 366 | He started running a fever. Again. He fell asleep as I was getting him dressed after a diaper change. And I really liked the light. But don’t be deceived because I’m still kind of over this whole sick thing.

65-366

66 of 366 | Some friends from church have chickens and we got some eggs from them. We had only one casualty while cleaning them.

67 of 366 | The look he gave me as some dark clouds began to roll in.

68 of 366 | He had yogurt for lunch. He made a huge mess. He had another sink bath.

68-366

69 of 366 | Today is the middle’s fourth birthday, but we didn’t get the chance to celebrate. For the second time in a week and a half, we had to take a kid to urgent care. He was on day five of running a fever, so we thought he might have pneumonia like the biggest did. Nope, not pneumonia. The flu. We are so done with being sick.

57 of 366 | The biggest had to stay home from school today because of a fever. But on a good note, these two are getting along today.

57-366

58 of 366 | Saturday morning mischief and yet another time both Tim and I were sternly telling them to get down as I quickly snapped a shot. But, these boys view these stairs as a challenge. And on the bright side, I managed to capture all three in the frame.

58-366

59 of 366 | The biggest wants to be just like Tim. Right down to the Earthbound inspired tattoo.

59-366

60 of 366 | He still hasn’t made it 24 hours fever free. But that light.

60-366

61 of 366 | After an urgent care trip last night, we found out he has pneumonia. We headed to Target this morning to pick up a few things to help him feel better. He told me that some new LEGOs would help. And I caved.

61-366

62 of 366 | Because why get everything you need in one trip when you can forget things and go back the very next day? Pretty much the story of my life. I mean, I forgot milk. Milk! Also, this is probably why it feels like Target gets all of our money.

63 of 366 | Channeling his inner Sith Lord. And, yes, I am now completely obsessed with this light we get in the hallway during the afternoon.
