Busy boys

We bought a new soccer goal a few weeks ago.  They boys really love it!
Graham loves being the scorer where as Charlie is still working on being the goalie :-)
The boys also love helping Mommy in the yard.  We're trying to put together a little paved spot for the mower this Spring.
 So busy!
Speaking of Spring, our bradford pear tree didn't have a full bloom this year.  The white flowers are so pretty but everything turned green so quickly this year!
And they say not to touch those daffodil bulbs once they are out, but I decided to move some bulbs to the front yard just last month.  There were a whole bunch of them surrounding a tree that we have removed recently in the backyard.  Well, I'm happy to say those daffodils survived the transplant!
 Nothing too much else going on.  We made a quick trip to the aquarium last Friday. The boys always enjoy doing that.  The eel was out from hiding when we were there.  It's so creepy looking!
And then, there's also the HUGE creepy looking snapping turtle!  This picture does not do it justice. Trust me, it was huge!
As usual, the boys loved the little tortoises.  It's nice that the glass viewing is just at the right height for Charlie:
Graham wanted to take a pic with the (fake) crocodile out front but didn't stay on it for too long because he said the crocodile was very spiky. He he...
Charlie, on the other hand was just happy with his snack in the stroller on the way to the car.
And oh, here's my first attempt at an pirate eye patch.  It was Pirate Day for Graham at school today.
The eye patch might have been just a tad big but he was really happy with it.  Lesson learnt though - can't make eye patches with felt as the fabric is too fragile for a 3 1/2 year old!  Thankfully it lasted just long enough for his treasure hunt :-)
