Pink or Blue

We are counting down to Wednesday when we find out if baby Snelders will be wearing Pink or Blue. I think it is fun to guess but I'm too computer illiterate to know how to make one of those cute little poles that I've seen on other blogs. So just make a comment and let us know what you think. Today Britt told us if it's a girl she wants to name her Macy and if it's a boy she wants to name him Luke. Nathan however had more creative names. If it's a boy he thinks Nacho would be a great name and if it's a girl we should name her Daisy or Peach!! (Do you think someone has been playing too much Wii? For those who don't know those are Mario character names!) Hopefully we get alot of comments because I think it's just fun to guess and I can't get my husband to play these little games with me so I hope you will!

Spring time in Star

World's best DAD! He had to fly the kite the most--and do all the running to get it in the air!
I thought my jacket would mask my rapidly expanding waistline better than this! (18 1/2 weeks but whose counting?)

Britt is such a good girl for letting me get at least 1 picture for the scrapbook before
she ditched us for the monkey bars!

Notice the level of the string...not a successful flight!

Tonight for FHE we took the kids to the park to fly kites. We were all very excited as we loaded everyone in the car... and then it was the same story as last year. They were all excited to go fly kites until they got to the park. Once the kite was in the air the kids quickly disappear to play at the playground. Then Scott and I feel very manipulated as we stand there flying the kite and we realize Britt & Nate used "kite flying" to trick us into going to the park!! Kid's are not dumb. They realize quickly that swings and slides are much more action packed than holding onto some string. SO, the pictures I got of the kids "flying" the kite lasted approximately 30 seconds each! But at least I had something to post on my blog. The real fun was Dad kept them playing at the park for another 45 minutes. Britt now is an expert at the monkey bars. She wants us to buy some for our backyard so she can practice. I bet she can't wait until Spring Break is over so she can show her Kindergarten "Peeps" her new found skills.
