This may be my longest post ever...
These photos comprise the past two months from Janelle's camera, her mom's camera,
and my camera.
We begin with Janelle's Parents Visit during SW Washington's Springbreak
Papa & Grandson
Entrance to Virginia Living Museum (Thaddeus' favorite place to explore, especially now that he knows the place so well).
Truly playing down at their level
Early Spring walk
Their day together at Williamsburg
Thaddeus getting to know the Colonial kids and guns
Thaddeus struck up a long conversation with "Thomas Jefferson"
Thaddeus found the letter "T" in the colonial alphabet cards
Hanging out with mother-in-law
Family photo on the front stoop
Back when Thaddeus and I were building our raised beds
We enjoyed a "King Cake" party with our Louisiana Friends down the street
King Cake is the traditional cake you see in the picture for Mardi Gras
Monster pot of jambalaya enjoyed by over 150 people at the party
Janelle's Mom's group took a trip to the Newport News Fire Dept.
My boys were in heaven
This photo reminds me of a political campaign poster with the natural light casting an aura and all. :o)
Johannes with his laughter sneeking out between his thumb sucking
Johannes turns "One"
He is excited
His Elmo card from Grammy and Grandpa Lambert

Celebrating Dave and Jan's Birthdays
Thaddeus getting his groove on
Practicing his left handing pitching with a dirt clod
Nice form, and thankfully the camera is a safe distance thanks to zoom lens
Dogwood in the yard with our dead tree in the background
View of our home from the neighbors yard
A trip to Hampton's International Children's Festival
A traveling bandwagon in the background
Thaddeus loves to give hugs to anyone in costume
When you are a beautiful woman showing interest in your surroundings...guaranteed target for an interview with the local media
She was awesome, of course!
Thaddeus sporting gifts from Nana
John Deer hat and Cowboy boots
Those boots have gotten rave reviews everywhere he goes.
One of those looks from Thaddeus that lets me know he is a "Big Boy" already!
And he is reading up on what he can expect out of me...
Thaddeus in the arms of one of the "pillars" of the church we attend
Getting ready for an Easter Egg hunt
At our friends house on Easter Sunday
Thaddeus and his friends are always superheroes...
Even without T.V. the commercialism is out there hounding the youth at a young age...amazing to me!
Our friend Will captured all the attention with his "nerf" rocket industrialized via the air compressor from the garage. Supercool!!!
Thad finds the "coolest" toy in the backyard
The Morin Family
Thaddeus stayed pretty clean in his "Easter Attire"
The humidity is in the air--
It gives Thaddeus great hair days!
I am vain for my kid :o)
I think he inherited some vanity though, as he needs a mirror for all his new clothes these days.
