April Wrap Up

In April I/we

-Celebrated Ian's 3rd birthday with a Jump Zone party and monster themed cupcakes
-Had a week long spring break/Camp Mommy with lots of fun places visited. I <3 Three Bears Acres!
-Read 3 books, The Nobodies Album is making Best of 2013 for sure. You're Not Doing it Right, sadly a disappointment.  No Taco Party, Part II as hoped
-Took the boys to Touch a Truck
-Went to the Duke documentary Film Festival and vow to buy a weekend pass for 2014
-Developed 2 new workout plans with the trainer involving running a series of laps and stairs and using the TRX bands. I've been doing it 3x for the better part of a month and wow it is intense upper body and core workout.
-Volunteered three times with Ben's class
-Got Ben and Ian registered and enrolled for summer camps. Hello Jr Jazzercise.
- Helped chaperone 50 awesomely well behaved students to Philadelphia, Amish Country, and Gettysburg on a History Club field trip
-Regretted buying Ben a play musket on said field trip.  He is one step away from reliving the Lincoln assassination on a nightly basis
-Purchased new spring clothes including 20th high school reunion dress contender
-Ben and Bill camping weekend at Camp Seagull with Y Guides
-Completed the purge of all Baby and Toddler loot, almost all gone minus one box leaving tomorrow en route to a happy 1 year old ready to get his Lightening McQueen on.

I love April for the abounding flowers, including one of my bushes with it's buds a burstin' a few weeks ago. This past week house/deck/porches were powerwashed, new plants bought, and dreams of summer porch sitting realized.

No April wrap up is complete without this beauty of an actual musket demonstration we happened to have timed our Gettysburg trip to see.  Awesome on all kinds of levels of history dorkery.
