Lately...

...we've been enjoying our art lessons.  This is our family landscape.  Poppy was the director.  She picked the paint colors and told us what to paint and where.  I painted the grass, sky and clouds...
Poppy began painting the barn and the road and then directed Marc to finish it up for her...
Didn't it turn out cute?
Lately, we've also been enjoying our stroller and some time at the playground.  The weather has been great, right up until the snow storm we got this morning.



She was pretending that she was driving a train with this wheel.  She was the conductor and me and Sam were in charge of filling the coal cars.

This past weekend was Maple Weekend in WNY, so we packed up the car and took a drive out to Moore's sugar shack for some all you can eat pancakes and real maple syrup (Poppy came up with the idea to paint a farm for our landscape painting while we were on this drive).

The waitress brought out a bunny shaped pancake for Sam and I have never seen this kid any happier than he was when he was eating that thing.  It was the size of 2 regular sized pancakes and he ate every last bite!  And Poppy ate 6 regular pancakes, 3 sausage patties and 2 glasses of oj!  I've never seen anything like it!

Sweet stroller! Very nice. Is that a Phil/Ted?
We are supposed to go to that sugar shack next weekend. How was it? Worth the drive?

I love this art class you are doing -- the kids have almost 3 weeks off for spring break, easter and the royal wedding ... I'm thinking they could be pros by the end. I'm signing us up!!
