Nate got his first pedal bike this week!  He had a balance bike before that he’d got quite good on but it was getting so small for him that as his Easter present it was time for a new one.  He was so excited when he saw it and even though he hasn’t had pedals before, he knows exactly what to do and got the hang of it really fast… next step is taking the stabilisers off!

Ollie’s old bike was broken and also too small so he got a new bike too.  His new one is a gorgeous red colour and he was so excited when he got it that he didn’t believe me that it was for him.  It’s bigger than his last one so it took a bit of getting used to but he’s zooming about now.

Happy Easter bonnet time!!!  Ollie needed to make one for school’s last day so Nate really wanted to make one too.  They turned out identical except for Ollie’s having chicks on and Nate’s having bunnies!  Both boys were so pleased with how they turned out and wore them to school excitedly!

We had a lovely Mother’s Day on Sunday!  Complete with cards, gifts, delicious breakfast and lots of lovely quality time.  We rambled and we geocached and the dogs ran crazy… I napped for 2 hours and we played a new boardgame!  The boys had as much fun trying to make it special as I had enjoying the day.  Also, do you know how hard it is taking a selfie with a DSLR?  Ha!

We spent a lovely part of a Saturday morning exploring the forest beside where we live.  Finally it seems like the weather is brightening up some and we are excited to adventure without freezing!  Both boys wore their wellies and Nate picked up a lot of sticks along the way!

Ollie is an adventurer at heart.  He loves being outdoors.  When we are out walking, I’ll often hear him telling a story out loud, even if he is the only one who hears it.  His brain is so full of imagination.

I got both boys rooms decorated a couple of months ago and they love them.  In each of their rooms they have banners that come as a ton of letters and you can have them say anything you like.  Nate’s room is now superhero themed and Ollie’s doesn’t have a theme, but is full of weird and wonderful things.

I love the absolute bones of these boys.  We had a nice little Valentine’s morning… I got them a couple of gifts each and made them waffles with bacon and maple syrup.  The made a couple of cards and made sure that I knew they loved me.  Lucky isn’t a strong enough word.
