April Highlights

Since there has been a lot of construction going on around our house (including a year and a half long road widening project down the main drag in town...), McKay has developed a perhaps not-so-healthy obsession for construction trucks. I think we talk about trucks more than anything else at home.

The neighbors behind us abandoned some toy trucks last summer so McKay quickly adopted them for his own when he discovered them this spring. We play outside with the trucks every day.

Easter was simple but fun. McKay was kind enough to share his Easter basket with all of us.
McKay ate his first ice cream cone. He calls it "cone cake." Sometimes he sings "Happy Birthday" when we give him one. We don't really know where the correlation came from, but it's pretty cute.

Towards the end of April, my sister and I started texting one Sunday night. In the course of the conversation she mentioned she was on her way to Nauvoo for the week with some friends. On Monday I told Burke it would be fun to go meet her, and Wednesday night after teaching my music class, I was off for Nauvoo with McKay. We got there Thursday morning, spent the day with my sister and drove home Friday morning. Although I spent 16 hours driving and only 24 hours (almost exactly) with Kathryn, it was totally worth it, and Nauvoo was wet but beautiful.
 We found a frog. McKay was a little unsure of it.
