With the beautiful weather, April truly brought us countless hours of fun outside and some good memories inside too. Here are highlights of the month.
This. This is what my walks or runs with the stroller have become. The boys basically still love the stroller at age 5....Kylie however, is giving up the stroller along with her naps. Help!
Jaden has a known peanut allergy and has had a bad reaction once. Because of this, our pediatrician recommended we wait to feed peanut butter (or anything with peanuts) until Kylie could talk and be able to tell us if she itches, can't breath, etc. One Saturday in April we tested her peanut tolerance with what else but Peanut Butter Captain Crunch! This was actually the first peanut product Jaden had and got a rash from consuming. I also had Evan try this as we have tended to shelter Evan from peanuts too. Luckily, both Evan and Kylie were just fine after consuming the cereal, which of course they found amazing!
I used to be able to handle two, 2-year olds every day. Give me two for an afternoon now and look what happens! I literally went to boil water and these girls colored a lot of stuff, including themselves! BFFs!
True to the Schumacher love of movies, we have taken the boys to animated movies about once every-other month this year. April was Kylie's first time at the movies! With the help of the never-ending bowl of popcorn delivered right to your seat, she and everyone else did great. A fun family tradition.....I mean, I just go for the popcorn:)
Hiding from dad!
Evan's version of flying a kite.
Bubbles and parktime fun!!
Quiet play time. Kylie feeding her baby, Penny, and Jaden doing puzzle after puzzle in the toy room.
Apparently if the apple isn't sliced, this happens.
And since when has a 'real' carrot become a treat?!
Evan came with me to a kids cooking event at the ISU Foods Lab hosted by my students. Two stations had peanut butter- so he was beyond thrilled! I think he learned an appreciation for healthy lunches too, maybe?!
Best Buds Forever.
