Here are some belated Easter photos. We were invited to a friend's house and had a lovely time. There was some confusion about the process of collecting eggs; Henry would replace the one he grabbed with an egg from his basket. Elliot enjoyed dumping his eggs out and then refilling his pail.

The Zoo!!!

My buddy Staci and I took our kids to the zoo last week when the weather was so springy! Initially we had Maya and Elliot walk on leashes and Henry was contained. I eventually swapped Henry and Elliot, but Henny knew that the way to travel was to be pushed in Maya's stroller. It was great for M&E to run around, test limits (they could only go as far as the leash allowed), learn to walk with crowds and how to navigate stroller/pedestrian spaces. Elliot loved the bats, and Henry was pretty happy with everything. Elliot and I took some time to check out the big machinery they were using to build the new lion exhibit (but that video will come later).

Maya. Elliot & Henry. Henry isn't really that much taller than Elliot.

Another Bad Idea

One day Elliot woke and insisted that I put Henry's shoes on him. They wore matching shoes to Auntie Ada's wedding, so he could have thought they were his. :) Anyhow, he really wanted to go outside, and tried to get out on his own. I'll let you guess how this ended.

This is why we don't stand on chairs

Henry stood on his chair and went boom. There was significant blood and crying, but nothing a popsicle, pressure and time couldn't fix. Phew. It took awhile for that fat lip to fade!
