Another Easter, another day spent with family and friends. The photos tell the story:
Without the rabbits’ teeth …
When in doubt, overdress.
Not to be left out.

This morning the kids and I headed a block north to Laurelhurst Park for the annual kids Easter Egg Hunt. We’ve been going to this event every year since 2009 but, amazingly, this is the first time its made this blog since, well, 2009.
Reese, Avery, Olivia, Maddy and Finn before the starter said “go.”
Not much to report here other than that the kids scored their share of eggs slash candy.
Tomorrow: Easter brunch.

It’s been a few years since the Jenkins fam last hit the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Five years, in fact. Finn, who now looks like this:

And Reese, who now looks like this:

Today we returned.
Once again, the flower show turned into a photo shoot. Not just for us but for the rest of the show goers — cameras were everywhere.
We ended up with 400+ pics. I uploaded most of the best ones to Snapfish.
Amazingly, our best family pics were selfies. The background tulips were obvious casualties.

Ok not really, that was two weeks ago. But yesterday was the first glorious day of Spring 2014, and we made good use of it. Our destination was Discovery Park. With us — George and Charlotte Swapp. Darn near a perfect day.
A few pics:
This field USED to be full of rabbits. No more.
George and Charlotte.
Had to get a selfie in.
The gang. Four of about 500 people in the park on this day.
Another eating stop.
The mountain was out.
Had to get this one.
Finn building up his biceps.
Charlotte striking a pose.

Tonight Reese and Finn had tee-ball games.
Reese’s SMG Models took on Finn’s Zeeks Pizza Pirates.
Not particularly remarkable.
Except that I coach the Pirates and assist for the Models.
A few pics:
Finn givin’ one a rip.
Caroline, Nellie and Reese.
Off to first base he goes.
Finn surrounded by gals — as always.
I thought we had this batting thing worked out in practice …
Lane McLaughlin was an outstanding assistant coach.
It’s a LONG throw to first base.
I coached for both teams …
Note the change of attire.
Reese on her way home.
Kris Faucett was an outstanding coach for the Models.
Congrats on a great game.
My favorite Pirate — and Model.
