The entire way there Thursday night the boys were so excited that Ben would randomly squeal at the top of his lungs and say "yay!!! Cat-a-goo-ga!!! Drew continually asked "this is Cat-a-goo-ga, Daddy?" and when we finally answered 'yes, this is it!' they about came unglued. I'm still not sure why they got so pumped, other than we had been telling them about the choo-choos and fishies.
So Friday we got off to an early start, and here are the boys at the famous Choo-Choo. All I wanted was a good picture for their upcoming big boy room in front of the train. But I guess that was too much to ask. This was good as I got:And here they are asking for some pennies to throw into the fountain at the train station. I still can't believe they are both looking at the camera at the same time.
After we left there we headed over to the Aquarium to meet up with Jim and Jennifer and their two boys, Jacob and James. (It really took me back to that formal we had there almost 10 years ago, all you Phi Sig girls!) We hadn't seen them in several months, so it was really great to be together with such good friends again. I hunted and hunted through our pictures to find one on the computer of Jim and Michael back in their college days to look at side by side of this next one. I thought it would be so neat to see these two friends years later with all four of their boys. But they are all the old-school kind (which I'm sure Michael is thankful for!). So, this is all you get:

Even though she didn't feel great, MawMaw still found time and energy to stuff Easter Eggs for a little hunt. It was rainy and cold that day, so while the boys took naps, Michael hid the eggs inside the house. Poor Dressie: it's just torture for a 6 year old to see where all the eggs are hidden, but have to wait until the twins woke up from naptime to find them all. She's such a good sport, and so very sweet to her little buddies. One of the highlights of the trip was letting the boys go inside to her "big girl school" with Aunt Chelle to pick her up on Friday afternoon. Her whole class knows them (from how much she talks about them) and they all got to say hello and wave to the babies. Then, Dressie held Ben's hand on one side and Drew's hand on her other side and led them and the whole kindergarten down the hall. All three of them were just beaming and so proud of themselves.We had such a good time! Happy Birthday, MawMaw! We love you and wish you many many more.

Ben's turn to throw one at me.
My favorite men in the whole world. Drew making "thno an-dels" (snow angels)Ben throwing snow onto Drew as he works on his snow angels. I wish you all could have heard the laughter coming from our front yard.
