Wish we could bottle this . . .

This happens every year in late March and April. It is so glorious, truly glorious, outside, that it is impossible to believe that in two months we will want to avoid outside at all costs. Because right now, we're pretty much living outside.

What do we do outside? We conduct experiments to see what happens when you add Mentos to a 2 liter bottle of Diet Coke:

Answer: spectacular (unphotographed) Diet Coke geyser. Now you know.

We let the force be with us.

Elizabeth frequently rebuffs Jacob's requests for a light saber fight, much to his great frustration (and Caroline is downright scary when wielding a light saber). But they both accepted Jacob's challenge this time, and he held his own against two opponents (and a total of three light sabers). All that practice is paying off, buddy.

We eat Krispy Kreme donuts:

We roll down the hill.

We take a break from rolling down the hill and humor mom by looking up at her and her %^$&@$!* omnipresent camera:

We get all pensive:

We get all silly:

We ham it up:

We water the herbs while wearing movie star sunglasses upside down:

Ice cream lady!!

Here's to hoping for a few more weeks of this before the bugs and heat drive us inside!
