sand. The girls spent Patriot's Day soaking in the sun down at the Cape with Mama Mer (Mama Fran was at work... the Dutch are lousy Patriots). The Spring weather has been most cooperative with our love of all things playground... did someone say play?! Who would think that Gilbert and Sullivan would appeal to the 5 and 3 year old set? Well, Nonne would and thanks to her part in the wonderful production of Pirates of Penzance, our girls now walk around singing the soundtrack - - tarantara tarantara. Carmen enjoys the "Major Generwal" even though "he tells a lie" and Lucia hopes to "sing as high as Mabel" someday. A mother can dare to dream...

Sorry for the delayed Easter post... we've been trying to remove Carmen's Blue Man Group audition body art. The girls enjoyed full immersion egg dyeing this year with their pal Alexa.... although Carmen objected to the term dyeing, "We gonna die the eggs? Noooo!" So we tried to call it coloring for her sake. Another cute Carmenism happening at the moment is her saying "Awwight" (all right). Example, "Carmen please clean up the markers" *heavy 3 year old sigh* "Awwight"... it's adorbs. After the hard work spent on the egg assembly line, we headed over to Mimi's house where you know who had paid a visit. There were treats galore and who gets to have an egg hunt in the woods?!? Oh yeah, these two princesses. Don't tell them we only had about 20 eggs, and when they weren't looking I'd just take one out of their basket and toss it over my shoulder. We could have stayed out there all_day. It's a good thing our girls can eat their weight in hard boiled eggs, they need all the protein for their Olympic training.
