Getting ready to head out the door for Juliette’s dance recital, Papa took the time to heed an age-old rule for parents: when the kids are dressed up and before they get a chance to get dirty, get out the camera! So here are a few pictures we snapped of Juliette before she headed out the door for the big show.
Juliette’s big moment comes at the 4:55 mark, squeezed in between the clowns and the footballers. If we’d had jokers instead of footballers, I’d have a great Stealers Wheels joke on my hands.
Juliette’s class put on a dance recital to celebrate the springtime. Their first song was about vegetables. (Juliette’s in the red skirt)
Even the cold, wet, grey start to Easter morning couldn’t wipe the smiles off the kids’ faces when they discovered their Easter baskets. Mama and Papa had already been a little generous with the candy this year, and when the grandparents arrived with even more chocolates, their little baskets overfloweth. They weren’t complaining, though.
Today was a perfect spring day. Cloudless skies, warm sunshine and just the right weather to be outside in shirt sleeves. We took the opportunity to make the most of it — all morning playing outside, lunch on the terrace, a quick afternoon siesta, then back outside to enjoy spring sunshine.
Days like these are rare. Best to enjoy them while we can.
The wee man is ready for summer!
With the warmer weather coming, it’s time for ice cream after lunch. Eat a little bit, wear a little bit.
