These days are for playing out in mild weather: IMG 1229
 and for brushing old ponies: IMG 1230
 Days for exploring Google Earth with friends: IMG 1228 IMG 1231
 Days for earning stripes on belts:

 Days for hiking in woods with a good man, and some fine dogs: IMG 1161
 and discovering signs of spring: IMG 1160
 Days for joining in your Sisters art class, and liking it: IMG 1232
 Days for banging on stuff alone: IMG 1003
 and with friends:
  IMG 1001
 Days for discovering crazy things in the men's bathroom: IMG 1221
I love everyone of these wild colorful days: IMG 1220
 Even when they are found in the men's bathroom.

We love you.

Update! Kaya's arm is doing so much better. With the help of physical therapy a few times a week he is now able to bend it and hold it normally.
He has been working hard:

and playing hard:
  IMG 1066
And it's paid off.
So what do you do when an injured arm get so much better?
You go on out and feast.
 You indulge in a super greasy celebration of good progress!

Evren had a birthday! He awoke to receive his gifts. IMG 1073
 A backpack complete with a dragon from Marlin: IMG 1072

 and a new Skylander from Kaya:
  IMG 1075

 He got the traditional singing Birthday telegram from his Grandparents:
  IMG 1076

 He went on a hike: IMG 1095

 He ate yummy treats at the book store: IMG 1084

 He played with his favorite things, alligators, and his Brother: IMG 1096 IMG 1093

 He went to pick out presents at another store, this involved more goofiness: IMG 1092

 He came home to build his new kit: IMG 1094

 And ride on his new scooter all night long: IMG 1090

Maybe this year, his seventh year, he will finally figure out that it is way less painful to ride down the bannisters the other way… IMG 1070

 Only time will tell.
 Happy Birthday Evren.
 We love you so much!
