Enjoying Spring

I haven't posted in a while as we have been busy getting out and about and enjoying the beautiful world we live in.
The boys seem to finally have seen the last of the Winter bugs (touch wood!). And the weather, though changeable, has given us some beautiful days.

One of Mikko's favourite things to do is go to a beach/river/puddle and throw stones in. Last week we went to the beach after preschool several times and the boys had a great time!

We have MAJORLY cut back on TV time for Mikko. Mikko just loves TV and he is so happy and relaxed when it is on. He bounds around, chatters away and shrieks with joy. BUT when it goes off he is miserable and just pretty much cries or screams for it to come back on. So the week before last I turned it off on Friday midday and didn't put it back on till Tues 1pm. Since then I have had a lot more success with using it sparingly to give both Mikko and I a break. He's been really good. He's doing a lot more, asking for TV less and when he does ask and I say no he is a million times better about it!

Catch ya later!

Life's a picnic

well Father's day was a picnic this year anyway!
We (me the hubby and our boys, sis and bro-in-law and their boys, bro, and Grandpa) decided to have a BBQ picnic at Wenderholm and despite being rather chilly it was great fun.
