This pouty face is pretty common these days. Miles is throwing some crazy tantrums lately when you tell him no. We're working on them but man, this is one spirited little boy! Any suggestions?
We went over to Grandma Jeanne's on Easter Sunday. Dad and Miles had a great time walking around the pond and looking at the ducks.

John and I thought it would be festive to dye Easter eggs. It was fun for us, but what were we thinking? Miles just grabbed them and smashed them together and made huge messes with them. We still have a couple left in our refrigerator and every time I open it and Miles sees them (and doesn't get one) he falls to the floor, crying and kicking his legs. I think I'll just throw them away so we don't have to go through this ritual five times a day.

We hid cars in Miles Easter basket. He had a lot of fun digging them out and LOVES playing with them. I try to read books and sing songs to him but all he wants to do, all day long, everyday, is play with his cars. Today while I was singing "five little monkeys" he came up to me and put his hand over my mouth and handed me a car as if to say, "enough already mom, can we just get back to playing with my cars!"

ta da! Miles in his Easter tie.

A few weeks ago we took a trip down to St. George with some of our friends. It was so nice to feel the warm sunshine and let the boys run around outside all day. The boys (Kai, Miles and Carter) had a blast together. Next time we do it though, the mom's decided to have the husbands come down too, to give us a break. It was like living in toddler town 24/7.

Aunt Stephi took Miles and I to the zoo last week. Miles (and Aunt Stephi's) favorite part was the giraffe house. There was a baby giraffe there too! We were there to watch them eat there dinner. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a great time. Stephi bought Miles a toy car (toyota land cruiser that has giraffe print all over it. Miles plays with it everyday. Thanks Aunt Steph!
