Just back from spending the first night of Passover with cousins in the DC area – where everything is blooming a little faster. Cousins romped in the driveway, and we checked out the cherry trees blossoming in Chevy Chase. Some clever little boys even set up a lemonade stand and reaped the benefits of a lot of foot traffic. Ezra is already excited to do this again in the next few months.

My husband and Ezra are taking ukulele lessons on Saturday now. According to my husband this is the perfect little instrument for tiny hands, and Ezra loves it. He rocks out like a Hawaiin rock star.

Look what I found! Growing in front of a building in our neighborhood.. a flower! A real flower! Things bursting up out of the ground everywhere finally. Spring might really be here!
Enjoy your weekend
Ezra’s teacher told us – the night before Ezra’s play – that he would need a wolf costume to perform in. All I have to say is thank GOODNESS we know someone who use to design costumes for Lion King! Thanks mamma Loren and Brad for lending us a wolf costume. We couldn’t have pulled this one off without you! See the morning of the play, and then Ezra on stage in the photos below –

Who knew? On the very last day that the slopes were open, Ezra tried his hand at skiing and LOVED IT! He now compares his love for skiing to his love for ipad time… uh oh. We may be on the slopes more often next winter.
