It's beginning to look a little like spring.  Here are a few of the clues I've seen.

The boys have had been able to play outside!

Brodie had a friend over that likes football as much as he does.

Waiting to catch the football

They played football all afternoon!

Isaac had fun playing with them

We went to the spring penny carnival for school.
Isaac got some cotton candy

He also played some hungry, hungry hippo

It was a lot of fun!

Isaac lassoing a "bull"

Ahh...March Madness!  We all filled out brackets and the winner will get a big trophy :)

OK maybe the trophy isn't so big :)

The boys making their picks

Isaac kept saying, "oh..this is a tough one..."

Brodie trying to decide who's going to win it all
We went for a few hikes up the Monument!

St. Patrick's Day

Even though we weren't quite as prepared this year, we had a great St. Patrick's day.   The boys made their leprechaun traps the night before St. Patrick's day. 

Checking out the supplies


Brodie's final product.  The cage on top drops down when the gold at the bottom is removed

Isaac's final trap

I had such good ideas for the leprechaun.  Unfortunately, I didn't execute them well enough.  Brodie came out of his room Tuesday morning crying.  He said he had seen the leprechaun's hand and it wasn't small.  It was a big hand and it took his gold.  He said it was very scary.  Apparently, he saw his mother's hand as she was hiding behind the foot of his bed.  Well, I had to tell him I was pretending to be the leprechaun.  He actually took the news better than I could have hoped.  He's done a great job with Isaac.  He just wants to make sure that I will act like the leprechaun again next year.

That naughty leprechaun

The leprechaun turned Isaac's hair green

and he turned the milk green

Isaac said the milk tasted like a leprechaun
 All in all it was a pretty great day!

What a great week!

We had a wonderful week last week!  We were so lucky to have Grandpa Luksan and Grandma & Grandpa Buman come visit us all in the same week.

Papa had to come to Scottsbluff for a night for work.  We were so happy we got to see him before he had to leave!
I wonder what Brodie is telling Papa here

It must be something good

It was a short, but great visit!

Grandpa and Grandma Buman came for a quick visit for the weekend!

They brought the piano with them.

Here it comes

All the guys making sure everything is ready for the piano to come off the truck

Grandma is staying far away from the piano

Made it nice and smoothly.  Brodie has been so excited to have a piano

After the piano was unloaded, there was time for some fun!

Grandma playing a little catch.  Nice throw with your left hand!

It was a great weekend.  It went by way too fast!
