I decided chicken was gross, and so was daddy's spaghetti and mozzarella sticks. I'll just stick to eating daddy's ice cream and Browne.
It sure was fun eating in the trolley.
Look at the Giant Andean Condor (witch 3 seconds later go into a fight with another one, and we all jumped about 3 feet)
Walker with Mommy and Daddy (Wilson wouldn't get out of the wagon).

...waiting for a bite...
...what the? The only catch was a bunch of leaves...
...but it was fun...
Good times with Daddy!
a little video of the casting action!
Brad and Wilson may try to get out to the creek again after naptime today. Their trip was cut short yesterday by some sprinkles.

And here is a little video of the boys dancing to "Trading My Sorrows/Yes Lord."
- Today Wilson displayed his super-human strength at the immunization clinic. Now he is already for school in the fall! Thank you, Brad, for taking care of that detail! (He has bruises from wiggling, and Brad said he kept yelling "I want it in the finger"...he had a finger-prick blood draw last week.)
- Walker had hives for the 2nd day so we discontinued his amoxicillian prescription, we'll see what the Doc tells us tomorrow.
- Did I mention that both boys got to pee in a cup last week? Boy was that a fun time!
- And, thankfully, I get to go to the doc tomorrow to find out what is up with all these headaches...hopefully the blood tests show something simple.
And a HUGE PRAISE. We have told most of you about Brad's Great Aunt Hilda (grandma G's youngest sister)...she went into a coma about 11 days ago. They weren't exactly sure why, and the diagnosis wasn't good. They even discussed organ donation; her living will stated that she didn't want to stay on life support. But, she has started responding to the doctors and it looks as though she is improving...even breathing on her own yesterday, winking, and moving toes and fingers. Please continue to keep the Aho family in your prayers as they stand witness to this miracle; waiting in faith for a complete recovery.

Wilson has been wanting to go fishing for some time now, actually, it probably goes back all the way to when he went with Uncle Dan back in Michigan. Well, Daddy has been working on some casting techniques in the yard. The big trip is supposed to be tomorrow, but it might have to wait until the weather warms up... The forecast is a bit nasty for tonight/tomorrow...
I love watching Daddy teaching the boys something...or just playing with them.
Wil picked out his pole himself, of course, its Cars. We were going to buy it for him, but he insisted on using his own money. I wish I had videotaped him getting it from the shelf (I had to tell him that they might not have a Cars fishing pole before we went, you know, just in case; but when we got there and he saw it...wow!)
After all our family visits over the last month, our house seems a little big and empty this week. We are surviving though =) It was such a blessing for all of us to see so many loved ones! Brad is on leave and we are taking care of this, that, and the other. Oh, and just to spice things up, I cut Muskoka on Tuesday. You read it right. I cut her ear. Poor thing. Now both of the big people in her life have cut her. Thankfully she didn't need stitches this time around! (In defense of my stupidity, I was trying to get some of the mats out of her fur. She has an appointment with a real groomer next Tuesday...)

This shot captures the boys' reaction to our singing of "Happy Birthday." Let's just say none of us will be on American Idol any time soon...
Blowing out the candles!
Hopefully Yaya enjoyed her Oklahoma birthday celebration. My friend, Shannon, let us borrow her mini van so we could all ride to lunch, (which was a treat from Mom's coworker, JoDee.) So, thanks to the two of them, we went to Red Lobster... Yum! Then we watched Snowbuddies and had Buffalo Chicken Dip for dinner, followed by the beautiful triple chocolate cake. Overall, I think it turned out to be a good day for her.
chillin' in the sand box/hot tub
three giggling boys and their Yaya
showing off their Levi's
It was a beautiful Valentine's day. I think the high was around 78! Wow! It was nice for the boys to get out and play in their matching "future heartbreakers" t-shirts from Yaya.

comparing piggies! (aren't piggies irresistable??)
And some random shots from the day
