What those Bowen boys are doing

The boys had their first Easter egg hunt along with other little eager seekers at our friend’s house last week. I have to admit, I kind of poo-pooed the whole Easter egg hunt business until I saw all the eager and excited faces. My fellow took his first hunt seriously – search and conquer.


Warmer days are here at last! These two were quite pleased with their view from way up “high on the house.”

It’s hard to believe but my little Oliver will be one year-old next month! He’s getting more sturdy on his feet and perches on one knee and can even stand occasionally for a few seconds. But he doesn’t seem in much of a rush to get walking which is totally okay with me!

Shae is a conversationalist. He likes to introduce himself and his brother and his mom to strangers at the medical clinic. Some of his sweetest expressions these days include:

“Mama, stop all the llama drama!” (He has these Llama, Llama books and apparently they are quite quotable)

“It fits!”

“Two boys! Shae and Oliver.” (This as I heave them both up on either hip)

“Where’s Thomas and Percy?” (He’s constantly loosing one or more of his trains)

“I got the phone.”

“Pusha the light” (Although this comes at bedtime in protest)


And those are your Bowen highlights for this week. Enjoy the weekend!
