Happy Holi!

We celebrated the Indian Holiday of Holi and even had the gulaal powder. It absolutely is as messy as it looks, but it was SO worth it. The kids had a blast, and could not believe that this was mom-approved fun. By the end of it, Max had completely stripped down and was pink from head to toe. There is a picture of him streaking down the hallway, but I'll save that for blackmail when he's older :) My friend Amy took the pics, mainly to stay out of the mess - she thinks I'm absolutely insane for allowing this. Visit http://www.holifestival.org for more information on this fabulously fun holiday.

Rockets and Dances

Madeline and Daddy at the Father - Daughter dance. This year she stuck to him like glue and they danced together all night.

Before the dance

Daddy and Mason on the pond. Waiting for the rocket launch. Dan with his winter beard :)

Playing on the ice - Miranda, Myles, Max, Maddie

Myles has been so excited about these rockets. It's something my dad used to do with me, and I impulsively bought one for him. We've had so much fun putting it together, painting it, getting ready for the launches. A few days after this, Dan decided to use big engines and launch it from our front yard. Shockingly, the rocket flew WAY up, and got carried who knows where. Good thing we have another one to build. Lesson learned by Daddy - you need MORE not Less room with a bigger engine.
