Easter in SC

Katie was kind of unsure about the beach, but then again, only had the view from her tummy as perspective...

In the water...the whole time.

Ben in his fort that we made to keep Katie in the shade...

In her Easter bonnet...

On his bike from the Easter Bunny!

Father-Son Doughnut Eating Contest:Play by Play!

Todd preparing for the start. The challenge was who could eat 5 Powdered Doughnuts the fastest.

Ben didn't quite the get the "speed" element of his first competitive eating match. Or maybe he just knows to savor every single bite of a good doughnut.

Working hard, but not hard enough for a win.

Plugging away...

Ben's plate when time was up.
He was given a handicap...three doughnuts instead of five.

I've never seen Ben so disappointed as when he learned he didn't win. Not sure if we should be concerned about a new love for competitive eating, or just his very well-known love of doughnuts. (:

Wristband Weekend!

First the Train Festival on Saturday and an Earth Day Festival in ATL on Sunday...we're officially festival-ed out. Here is Pirate Captain Ben with his balloon sword and ECU Pirate Todd.

Train Day!

We went to Train Day at the Athens Community Council on Aging (I guess they figure young and old like trains?) and Ben loved it! He rode a train, looked at all the model trains, LOVED a giant Lego train set-up (it even had a Chick Fil-a...so random) and won some cupcakes on his first ever cake walk...success!

Ben's New Haircut

He wasn't happy about it, but an ice cream cone afterward made it all worthwhile...summer, here we come!

Ben's School Friends

Added to the ever-growing list of "things that make me feel old": ordering class pictures.
