Yes, this is the way he took the photo
The Wilton aisle. One of the most visited by us! Looking for candy molds and cake pans in the shape of Scooby-Doo. Not for Easter, but for Lon's upcoming fifth birthday (I know, deep breath). He is starting to talk about wanting a Scooby theme. Ruh-ro!
Lon is dying the uncooked eggs for the Italian Easter Egg bread, which Lon now calls Rainbow bread. I like it.
Columba Pasqula. Whew! That is a serious bread, that took two full days to make! Next time, if there is one, I will not have the oven so hot. I think powdered sugar will help alot.
Now we start getting BUSY!

Today we had Bunny pictures! I got Lon dressed up in his clothes at home this year, which is new. These are a couple of the pictures I took at home before we left for the mall.

The first place we went was the family farm section. The petting zoo opens tomorrow, the first day of spring. We saw goats, sheep, a barn owl and miniature panda cows. The only thing that makes the cows miniature is that they have tiny legs.
This silly bird saw a spider on the other side of the glass, and kept flying into the glass to get it. Over and over again.

It was another pretty day! We went out to enjoy it. We took advantage of Lon's new found love of hiking to go on the trails at St. Edward park.
This is the trail grade. It is very pretty. I was not sore or winded but by the time we got to the water my right knee was just shaking. I am now the proud owner of a new knee brace.
After our hike and playground tour we stopped by to see Reyansh. He is getting cuter every day! I even got to cuddle with him, much to the consternation of Lon. He wanted to hold him and if he could not, I should stop right now!

Today we decided to not do yard work or housework or any work at all! We went up to Skagit Valley, looked at the daffodills and then headed up Chuckanut drive to Bellingham. The rain held off till the very end of our drive.
The first field of daffodills we stopped at. There were very few cars. This will change in about two weeks when the tulips are in bloom.
Lon wanted to walk in the fields, but we told him that it was not the thing to do. He was good with that
We stopped by Rozengaard We were able to park at the building, and we did not have to pay the nominal fee to tour the garden! Of course, the tulips are not all in bloom yet. It was still very pretty.
Lon ditched his coat and ran all over the garden. He did not go into the flowers. He did like to sniff every the flowers.
Lon informed us that he is now wanting to go on hikes, and they should start NOW at this trail. Don't you think this would be a good idea? Huh, Mom? Let's go hiking, NOW. We did a little walking on this tiny trail, then we got back into the car and headed up to Bellingham. We ate lunch at a little place called Win's Drive In. I had a Hawaiian burger. Yummy, Lon had a corn dog, and Mark had fish and chips. And they had pineapple shakes! It was a good day.
