We stuck around Brookfield this week. Claire loves riding her bike.
On the swing at the park at the end of our street.
Switching jammies with Violet.
Cinco de Mayo! We've started making margaritas with fresh fruit instead of mixers and they are muy tasty.
I've started to practice the guitar a bit more lately. This week I'm learning the strumming pattern D DU UDU along with the chords Em, A add 9 (Easy A), G, and D. This is my first real week of practicing consistently and I'm finding the transition from G to D very difficult. I'm also finding that the tips of my fingers on my left hand are in quite a bit of pain.

Claire is always finding something silly to do.
We've been getting together with Joe, Jackie, Violet and Maxwell quite
often. Typically once during the week and once on the weekend if we're
The kids love playing together.
Claire has really found an interest in dressing her babies so we took out her old premie clothes for her to use.
She would read books all night if we let her.
We typically ride our bike to the park each night while Jen gets dinner ready.
Then we play around for a bit before heading back.
This is one of Claire's favorite stuffed animals right now. His name is "Peep". She likes the disgruntled look on his face.
My high school friend Jon stopped by on Saturday night with his wife Amy. I haven't seen him since our wedding in 2000.
