The Kid Behind the Blog - April Edition


The first few days of April were cold here in Connecticut, but now the weather has warmed up nicely--right in time for Lewie's spring break.  When I'm not working, we've been spending time at the park bike riding, walking, and even playing hide-and-go-seek.  (Daddy joins in on the fun too.)  Our town rec center has a lot of mini buildings to store baseball equipment, etc., so it provides a perfect place to hide.

For the rest of spring break, Lewie has two trips planned--one for laser tag and another for bowling. He also has a play date scheduled with his best friend Ryan, which means Mommy will have "girl time" with his mom, Sue.  Our aunt from Delaware will be arriving the latter part of this week to celebrate Easter with us.

After Easter, the rest of this month looks fun, too.  The weekend of the 22nd and 23rd, we plan to stay overnight in Massachusetts to see Lewie's cousin Sarah compete in her cheerleading competition. On the 29th and 30th, we have two favorite traditions--the Daffodil Festival and our own homegrown Easter Egg Hunt (complete with prizes for nine little ones since everyone's a winner).

Yes, April is going by quickly, but we're doing our best to enjoy it to the max.

A short walk at Veteran's Memorial Park in Bethany.  In a few weeks, the trees will be bright green again!

What is your favorite thing about spring?
"My favorite thing about spring is that it gets warmer outside because I hate the cold."  (He thinks about his answer and then decides the word hate is too strong.) "Well, I'm tired of the cold."

If April showers bring May flowers then what do May flowers bring?
" brings warm weather?"  I then tell him that the May Flower brings pilgrims.  He still needs another history lesson.

What does a flower need to grow?
"It needs soil, water, and sunlight," he answers matter-of-factly.  Since it was such a quick answer, I ask him if he has anything else to add.  His answer?  "Not really."

Do you like that it's starting to get warmer, or do you like the cold and snow better?
"I like that it's getting warmer.  I like taking walks with my mom, bike riding, and swimming in the pool."  (The swimming won't start until the end of June, but that's okay...)

What do you want to do over your spring break?
"I want to have play dates and play lots of games and be outside a lot."

Bonus:  What is your favorite thing about Easter?
"That it's like Christmas except with a bunny."

I'm looking forward to linking up again with Stephanie of Wife Mommy Me on May 10th. Her April linkup is here:


  1. It's spring break here too. We are enjoying the warmer weather! Simon also thought this means swimming - not yet buddy!

  2. I'm with Lewie...I don't like the cold, either! I hope you have a wonderful Easter!

  3. I hope he has a great Spring Break. We are on Spring Break this week but I've had to work a lot. The boys did get to go to my parents' for a night, and they took them to a movie. And we are going roller skating tomorrow. Plus we did a mega Easter egg hunt on our trails. But I wish we could've done more fun things.

    1. It sounds like you did a lot of amazing things all in one week! Roller skating is definitely on our "to-do" list in the next week or so.
