Hugging the recently shorn mop.  (4/3/17)

Spider-Men on a tire swing.  (4/6/17)

"I'm flying like a fairy!  Wait, no, I'm flying like SPIDER-MAN!"‬  (4/6/17)

Spider-Man wants to give you a high five.  (4/6/17)


Spider-Men on a slide.  (4/6/17)

Very exciting wrapping paper.  (4/8/17)

Elaine made Daddy's birthday cake all by herself.  (4/8/17)

A cluster of tulips in the wilds of our back yard.  (4/15/17)

The ever-patient Easter Sheltie.  (4/15/17)

Elaine carefully arranged five eggs in her basket; Wesley piled the eggs into his basket several layers deep.  (4/15/17)

At first Wesley watches while the more experienced artists dye eggs.  (4/15/17)

Soon, he was dying eggs with the best of them.  Mostly yellow.  And very rapidly.  They made some disturbing crashing sounds when he'd put them down.  (4/15/17)

In spite of his impatience, Wesley even managed to dye an egg with stripes.  (4/15/17)

Such bright, beautiful colors.  (4/15/17)

Carefully counting jelly beans.  The ears are gone in one bite.  (4/16/17)

Scattering out to find eggs.  (4/16/17)

Some were way up high.  Some kept falling out of Wesley's basket.  (4/16/17)

Recovening to count the eggs and see if they've all been found.  (4/16/17)


Something more valuable than tenure -- a daughter who'll bake a "HAPPY TENYR" cake for you, just because she's amazing.  (4/30/17)
