Vitamin D

We have been so happy with the much needed sunshine and warmth that Portland has been getting in the last few days. We have been outside every waking moment...soaking up some vitamin D.
It isn't so easy to take pictures of two kids at the same time. I'm lucky to get a good one of them together. Either they aren't looking and it just isn't a good one...
...or he hides behind Mezmur...
...or he jumps in front of Mezmur. I'll keep trying and share the good ones with you.

The other night...
DAD: Rhett, why do you always itch your nose when you brush your teeth? Does the electric toothbrush tickle your nose?
RHETT: No, it doesn't tickle it itches!
DAD: Rhett, that is sort of the same thing.
RHETT: No, Dad, they aren't synomyns! (synonyms)
No, we don't quiz our four year old, but Dan does recall months ago telling Rhett what a synonym was...and he remembered. Now if only I could get him to remember to put away his toys.

Is it seriously tshirt weather up there? Susan stayed in our house this weekend and kept writing me about the shops on Freemont and the cherry blossoms, and oh, the ache to get back!

That's so funny about the "synonyms" - we recently taught Charlie that word, too, and he likes it!
