While Daryl was off singing today, we dyed eggs and baked Easter rolls.

Ben measuring flour for the rolls

The dough rose a lot! (It's very hot here today....)

Alex shapes the dough for the rolls, or "Look Ma, flour-y hands!"

Look what we made!

The best part

This picture of Ben and Kaloo is from yesterday, but I like it so I threw it in.

Mud Season Continues

Yesterday we went to the strangely named Soldier's Delight Natural Recreational Area nearby for some more mud-seeking. If two very muddy children is the cost of a two-mile walk in a neat place (a long way when you're five), I'm willing to pay. Soldier's Delight is also a serpentine barren, which is a sort of crazy geological anomaly where the earth's mantle is very near the surface, the plants are all different than you expect, and the rocks are weirdly colored from all the heavy metals in them. The birds were pretty neat too.

Stomping in mud...

Jumping into mud puddles...

Throwing rocks into a muddy stream...
