A burrito with buddies and diapers galore.  I love my sweet friends and family!  Thanks to all for celebrating Rory and his future digestive needs. Elizabeth, it was perfect, you're the best!

Swimming Lessons

We shiver on the side of the pool most of the time, but Mr. Jamie is pretty cool and we are liking the jump and bob.

Spring Broke

Happy Birthday, Lacy! (First football gameish)

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth! (Second baseball game)

We did not make the megatron with this even though I posted to Instragram for the first time in forever in the attempt.

Preschool Egg Hunt Field Trip.  Mom first of chaperoning!

Egg dying with the pals.

Egg hunt practice with Lucas.
 And finally, The Great Wolf Lodge.  Silas declared it better than costumes.  The magnitude of that may be hard to understand, but is profound.  He liked sleeping in his wolf den bunk bed possibly the most.  He was also a fan of the waterpark and arcade.  We went to Nakatos, Charlotte campus for dinner and he and Lacy were adorable holding hands to and from the table about a million times. I cannot say the Clocktower show was very impressive, but it might have had to do with the creepy animatronic girl being broken and missing all her lines.  All in all, I think it lived up to its name.

Bike Gang

My son has joined the neighborhood bicycle gang.  They are the coolest kids I know.  For real, I am so impressed with them. They make me smile at the perfection of our neighborhood.  Cute cake baking elderly folks on one side and these dudes on the other.  They practice everyday, have built their own ramps, grinding rails, and other contraptions I don't know the names for.  They are so friendly and always talking to Silas.  I want to tell them how much I love them, but I am thinking it would not have the effect I want- them being teenagish boys and all.  Following their lead, Silas recently started showing interest in the tricycle that has been sitting in our garage for two years.  He had really outgrown it, so we decided to buy him a used "big kid" bike.  The first day he took it out, the whole crew was cheering him on and being so adorable!  They even let me take this picture.  Silas is getting really good, really fast too.  It has been a super fun new development.

These are the only pictures I took in January.  It is mostly because he is always wearing his Peter Pan costume and too many shots with him in a green felt tunic become questionable.  Just wait until February's post...I'll have at least 3!
New Year's at the Oliver's!

Cheetos walk.
