Double Rainbow

It's Tuesday night of another cool, wet Spring day.  Aden started guitar lessons this afternoon.  I'm pretty excited about that.  I might  try them too.  Amy is headed out for her 2nd girl's night in a few days.  Not that I'm counting.  I guess that's why she let me go to the concert last night.  The older two are behind me playing a spelling game on the iPad.  First, I'm amazed they are playing together on the same team and then Ariel is holding her end up.  She's guessing a lot of the letters correctly.  

Pick up at school.
 Ariel was checking out Aden's new guitar.
 The sky is falling!

 We were stuck inside during a crazy thunderstorm.
 Eli entertained us.
 The storm left us with a double rainbow!

 Now that is a cool picture if I do say so myself.
 After all the practices and meetings, it was finally time for cheerleading tryouts.  We just dropped Ariel off so we don't know how she did.
 But she was happy when we picked her up.
 We still don't know their decision on her.
 Enjoying that corn Eli?
 Noah was helping Ariel find words.
 What are you cooking Eli?

 Are we really going to make him keep playing the clarinet?
 Ariel likes to try on Amy's shoes.
 They are building a rainforest in Ariel's class.

 Such a big boy!

Mother's Day Cake

I had a bit of an adventure tonight.  I went to the Sands Casino in Bethlehem to see The Hollywood Vampires.  Johnny Depp's band.  It was fun.  More on that later.  Back to last Sunday and Monday.

Mother's Day and I decided to bake a cake.  All the kids helped.

 Some less than others.  

 It came out yummy.
 Eva and Gwen came over and the kids went nuts.  

 Hanging  out with Amy's family.  

 Gwen is a great eater.
 I'm sure this was deep conversation about sports.

 Playing outside Monday.

 We had a sitter to help.  Amy went to a cheerleading meeting.  She says the next level Ariel might be in seems pretty intense.

Ariel the Flyer

Here's a quick post for Monday.  I forgot to do this last night and I'm rushing to get ready this morning.  We have a new team of teenage babysitters. 
 Madi is a great dancer and has been working with Ariel.
 Ariel had a practice session for cheerleading tryouts.  
Ariel the flyer!
I took the boys up to the school.  

 Then we were stuck in the rest of the day with rain.  Someone wanted to go out to play football.
 Mother's Day morning!  Everyone on top of mommy!
 This is what I got her.  LOL.  
 Even though it was rainy, we needed to get out of the house.  

 Food shopping is hard with the kids.  They grab everything!
