In April, we met some friends for a morning at the Zoo. The first thing we did was ride the carousel, since it is free the first hour the zoo is open.

I was in the next room folding laundry when I heard Jack say, "I can't wait until we trap Charlie."
I loudly said, "NO!" I am not sure exactly what he means by "trap" but I figure it can't be good, and Charlie will definitely not like it.
Patrick responds, "Mom! Just don't listen!"

After many years spent teaching high school P.E., my mom retired this year. Her school surprised her and another veteran teacher with an all-school assembly to honor them and their many years of service. In addition to the surprise of the assembly, they were surprised to see many family and friends had come, too.
The faculty gave a blessing over Mary and Maria.

In early April, Jim and I ran our first half marathon. We had a fabulous weekend filled with lots of friends and activities, and barely any picture-taking by me. The picture of Chris and Kathryn in front of the Arch is one of the only pictures I have from the weekend. Luckily, I can share a few from other people's iPhones.
The weekend started off Friday night when my good friend from high school, Kathryn, and her friend Chris flew in from Denver. Somehow we thought it was a good idea to try on some wigs I had borrowed from my friend Sara.
On Saturday morning, we went downtown to pick up our race packets. Then, we went to the Arch. By the time we got through the line to get into the Arch, I had to leave. Kathryn and Chris stayed and were joined by their other friend Chris who had driven straight to the Arch on her way in town.
The starting line:
A couple weeks before Easter, I took Patrick and Charlie to meet the Easter Bunny while Jack was at school. Charlie was less than thrilled to sit on his lap.

Jack had a pretty good birthday this year. His school allows students to dress out on their birthday, so he didn't have to wear his uniform. He enjoyed a muffin with a "6" candle with his breakfast.
That weekend, we had the family over to celebrate Jack's birthday.
