We started playing Blokus about a week ago and have played it every day. The boys play together or I will play with one of them. Eric and I even have matches at night. It is pretty neat game that really challenges your brain. We're just loving it.
We learned about the 4 groups of instruments and then listened while being entertained to Peter and the Wolf. The narrator was terrific. He used such unexpected props. A feather duster for the duck, a purse for the cat, a suitcase for the wolf, plungers for the hunters' guns.....it was so creative and really made one use their imagination while listening for the pieces of music that represented each character. The boys totally loved it.
We then had a bite to eat and since it was so beautiful outside headed to the beach to play and enjoy the afternoon.
Home for a little rest, a game of Blokus- a new favorite- soccer practice for Landon and then off to check out something new.
Yes, instead of hunting for eggs and candy we went to our favorite orchard this past Saturday and hunted for apples. It was bitter cold for April but the boys had a great time. Tons of kids, 10,000 apples. And if they happened to gather ones with stickers they did get a few treats.
They rode a horse drawn carriage whose horses had the names of some of their favorite cartoon characters. (Tom and Jerry)
And pictures with the Easter Bunny!A first for William. He has never been a fan of over sized bunnies.
