I had so many pictures from going to my (emily's) parents' and the boys in their matching jammies...Elias' face smashed up against the glass door and the boys in the wagon from my childhood...Corbin playing in my old sandbox and riding my old bike...riding my dad's 3 wheeler...Elias' teeth...Elias crawling and walking with help! And while taking pictures of a hideous sculpture in Rugby, my camera told me that the format was incorrect! AAAAHHHHHH! So I lost all those pictures...every single one of them...at least 300! I guess this will put my memory to the test...will I remember without a picture for proof?

On Thursday morning, Joel was getting ready to go to work and as always Corbin asked him where he was going. He told Corbin that he was going to church to "make the donuts". Corbin repeated it a few times and then we went on with our day. When Joel came home to pick something up, Corbin immediately asked dad about the donuts. He really thought Joel was going to make donuts! We tried to explain to him that dad was just making money...but Corbin didn't get that. So, when Joel came home for the day, he was expecting donuts....which Joel didn't have. Corbin was devastated! He wanted donuts, now! I distracted him by taking him to the store, or so I thought. He told everyone in the store that we were there to buy donuts. Yet again he was devastated when we didn't buy them there. So, being he keeps bringing it up, we really feel like we might have to make some donuts....because now we are craving them, too!

So, I just hear the absolute cutest noise coming from the bathroom. I heard a "hehehehe" and "hahahaha". I listened a little closer and Joel was having Corbin brush his teeth and they were "tickling" them...so his teeth were laughing, "hehehe"! Isn't that cute? What a wonderful daddy!

Corbin helped himself to a few pieces of bread for breakfast and sat next to Elias, ripped a few tiny pieces for him and SHARED!!!! ("share" rarely happens in our house)

Corbin on his "bike". He rode over to Bible study this morning with Joel, to the church and home this morning. He enjoyed all of it and really did a great job!
Today, we broke out of the house for hours and hours! It was such a beautiful day I actually let Corbin take off his hat and coat! I probably could have let him run around in shorts and a t-shirt. It was so nice!
I let Elias go in the grass and he took off! He didn't mind the feeling of the grass on his fingers (for the first time) at all! He was all over the yard, putting every piece of grass and leaf and sand in his mouth!
For almost two weeks, Corbin looks out his window during nap and says "sandbox" over and over. Finally, he and his sandbox were reunited!

RADA put on an Easter Egg Hunt at the city park on Saturday. Corbin really enjoyed looking for all the eggs and being Joel helped hide them, he knew were some were.
S is home and this is the first time Corbin has seen her! Sadly, I don't think he fully remembers her.

During our playdate, we played with toys, ate and dyed eggs...all while having adult conversation (and breaking up a couple of fights here and there)!!!

A with Elias.
Both girls were set that Joel and I needed to get sick so that they could take care of Elias and Corbin for us. (Because when Corbin was 3 months old Joel and I (emily) were so sick that we couldn't take care of the poor kid, so we sent him over to our wonderful friends for an overnight.)
We went for our first spring walk! It felt so good! We were in need of getting some fresh air...for about the last 3 months!
A & E greeted us while on our walk and asked us to come in. We had a great time!

I got these "matching" shirts when I was in OR. They fit them just right!
Corbin's shirt says, "Sometimes crabby, but always cute!"
Elias' says "teething bites"...which is very fitting right now! He just got his top two front teeth in yesterday, poor kiddo!
