Dear Noah....a gorgeous Saturday and A&W Root Beer

 We had a nice visit from grandma C and uncle Mike Saturday morning....after they left we got some lunch and took it to the park to eat. It was a gorgeous day weather-wise. Nice and sunny...only about 71 degrees outside. We then decided to drive to Union City, Indiana and go get a root beer at the A&W Root Beer stand.

LOVELY day for a drive. You love their root beer. I tried to get you to

smile..but as you can see you nearly spit it out as you took a big swig and then I said SMILE right afterwards. ANYWAY...we enjoyed the day. Next up was railfanning...watching a couple of long trains that came through Union City and then you taking pics of RR crossings. Back home and a nice evening there too.

I love you my little mustache man.

Happy Easter!

 When Noah was little, he did not enjoy coloring Easter eggs all that much...and most often when his aunties and I would get together to color the eggs (as we still enjoy doing it)..he would opt out. I think it had a lot to do with getting messy dye on his fingers.

Well this year he started out early asking if we were going to color Easter eggs this year. I finally told him we could..if he would actually do it.

SO I boiled a dozen eggs...and put 2 in that were brown shells just to see how
 they might look colored. They turned out more Army green and brown. he is...and enjoying coloring the eggs. One broke after boiling so I ate that one. I decided to let him color all 11 eggs himself...oh...I guess I did end up coloring one to show him how it was done as he could not really remember. He did the other 10. He seemed to really enjoy it and did not mind all that much that some dye got on his fingers. Here are his finished results.
Happy Easter everyone!
