[this comment was logged as an upbeat complaint about my cooking. i recently discovered julia child's 20-second omelet technique and have since then shamefully let slide my talent for preparing challenging eggs. and here i was thinking that was a good thing!]

The insurance company acknowledged Eoghan's 2-month birthday by sending him his very first bill.
We're going to see if the insurance company will take payment in baby cuteness.

To celebrate Seimi's fourth birthday, the Mayor took him camping, which was what the medium-sized boy really wanted. The Mayor kept it low-key, and the guys went camping down by the river behind Clean Food Farm, Grammy and Grampz's farm.
Seimi enjoyed the 5-minute "hike" back to the camping spot, perched in the garden cart atop the sleeping bags.
Here's the tent and Seimi with his current favorite portrait pose, "Mouth Wide Open."
Seimi especially loved hanging out with Grammy and Grampz and getting the "Micros Machines" all to himself. He even got to play with the P-51 Mustang the entire time, which never happens when Boookie is there.

The Hobbit Wife instructed Seimi to get dressed up to go outside. He came up with a dirty sweatshirt and suit pants. We love our newly-minted four-year-old!
Ela has had some opportunities to try her hand at photography. We couldn't possibly post all the pictures of beautiful trees and flowers, but here are a few selections from her perspective.
Seimi lost his water bottle last night so the Mayor filled up an empty beer bottle for the medium-size boy, who was disappointed it was "Wass, Not Beer."

The hobbitlings hovering over the "end of spring" Hawaiian feast last night.
And what post about the changing seasons would be complete without pictures of the ever-changing, ever-changed littlest hobbitling, Eoghan. These photos were taken seconds apart.
