The Apple Blossom festival kicked off this weekend. I debated weather or not we were going to go to the parade. We have been so busy lately, I was looking forward to NO schedule this weekend, and Caden has been super sensitive to noise lately that I feared the marching bands and sirens would put him over the edge. But when the weather was perfect Saturday morning, I decided to give it a try. Caden covered his ears the whole time ... even when there were no sirens or music. It's hard not to feel bad for him in this picture he looks perplexed and uncomfortable. But after the parade he proceeded to tell me repeatedly how much fun the parade was and he wanted to see more parade :0)
After the parade we played in this cute little park ... and out of 55 pictures I wasn't able to get the "perfect" one. Caden is go, go, go ... and has no time to stop and pose for a picture!

I brought Caden's potty chair out back with us and told Dan, "Caden has on big boy underwear". Then told Caden, "buddy, if you think you have to go potty tell Daddy and he will help you".
A little while later I was in the back of the house unpacking and Dan yells in at me, "Mom". I walk out the back door to the deck and see this cuteness ...
We saw the doctor on Wednesday, just another little virus. Thank goodness he was feeling better by the weekend, we were able to continue on with our plans!
Dan and I worked a half day on Friday .... when I picked Caden up from Daycare he was standing on the front porch with his lunch box in hand. This kid was glowing with Excitement! He was ready to go to "Kenwack" (Kennewick) and meet new friends. Mr. Bossy directing Dan to load the truck.
Caden had fun playing by the pool ~ it kept me on my toes, fearing he was going to fall in the water.When it came time for the 7:00 dinner Saturday night Caden was WORN out!!! I had hoped he would interact with some of the other kids, but he was done! Dan ended up taking him up to the room around 8:00 and he was out for the night :0(

As soon as we got up to our room, Caden insisted on propping open the door to the balcony. He had the right idea of propping open the door, but his lunchbox wasn't heavy enough :0(
After we checked out of the hotel we went to visit Grandma & Grandpa W. He was excited to get his Birthday present from them ... a "Waggin" (wagon). He loves that the wagon has a door.

I only took a few pictures. I didn't want to be the embarrassing Mom snapping away, and I didn't want to set him off by asking him to smile ...
He adapted fine in his classroom, as I talked with his teachers. I wasn't sure whether to sneak out or say goodbye. I asked his teachers what I should do and they said to say goodbye. I told him I was going to go back to work. He whined a little and told me to sit. I again told him I needed to go back to work and Daddy would pick him up in a little bit. He was okay with it.
Dan picked him up after school and the teacher said he did great! No tears :0) I asked Caden if he had fun at school and he said, "yes, loud". Not sure what he means by loud .... but I think it was a successful first day!
Here's to 15 plus more years of school :0)

Caden wasn't so sure about the whole "Easter Bunny Story". We didn't attempt to see the Easter Bunny this year. His freak out over the Red Robin bird a few weeks ago reassured me there was NO way he was going to tolerate the Rabbit!
After nap we told him the Bunny left eggs outside while he was napping. Again, he wasn't too sure of our story (this kid is too smart - he already thinks we are dumb!). But once he understood that he had to find the hidden eggs, he excitedly proclaimed, "see it" ... and would run to each egg.
We ended our fun day with a yummy Easter dinner ... Ham, Asparagus and Scalloped Potatoes. Mhh good!
