Its not the back of the house boat where we really like to do it, but it will do for now. We're just practicing.

Almost every Sunday Jack and Claires CTR4 teachers, Brother and Sister Lee, stop me to tell me what little things my children are talking about in their class. One of the first classes they had was something about Heavenly Father and Jesus creating this world for us. Jackson went OFF about the planets and space. Something he loves and actually knows quite a bit about. A few weeks ago their lesson was about Lehi fleeing into the dessert (a scripture story out of the Book of Mormon). Jackson again knew everything there was to do about CAMPING. Then tonight I got this message from their teacher: "You're daughter is hysterical. In primary yesterday she observed how the tendons in my neck really stick out when I'm excited- she kept asking me to "do it again" (and because I'm a sucker for stupid human tricks I gladly obliged) and she would GIGGLE and then she goes "you look dead!" HAHAHA I love it! :)"
Gotta love these kids!

|Love Max's face when it flips!|
Daddy took a week off for a little R&R. Well, he forgot that Robinsons dont actually R when they R. We run as hard and fast and as fun as we possibly can. So part of the week I had decided we were going to go camping. But it turned out to be a little chilly, so we did everything except the actual sleeping. We went to Turkey Point State Park, the very top of the Chesapeake Bay. There was a mile hike to the light house. Really neat to see. The kids knocked and knocked but no one was home. Only on weekends could you go in it. We went fishing, (a whole different post) and then to the beach for a BBQ and playing in the sand that night. Of course we couldnt keep Max out of the water, cold was it was, and Claire just had to join him. We're going to have to go back. They kids really loved it.
We loved our little garden last year, so we are doubling it. But that also meant doubling the work. Its ok though, its worth it. Heres our spot. We had to dig out all the grass. No, the kids were not helpful, but atleast they werent a distraction either. They did help us plant seeds and were super excited when the "pickle" plant popped up so big :)
The easter bunny brought the kids new bikes for Easter. They have been a huge hit! The only glitch is that Jackson crashed quite a few times that first day and now refuses to ride his. I know he's scared, but its to the point Im going to have to buy him a different bike. He'll ride other bikes, just not his. (sigh).
Daddy had never seen the Cherry Blossoms so one day he was post call (means he worked a 24 hr shift the day before and had the day off to recover). So we headed down. The kids loved running and playing through the fairy leaves. Such a fun thing to see every year.
