Happy Spring

Who needs a dipper tool for dying eggs?  Full hand dipping is much more effective.
Thanks for my beautiful flowers Noah

Photo Story

Beyond photos, it'd be great to include interesting updates about 'life these days'.  In summary: Ian walks over and tells me his (red) shirt matches my eyes.  I wonder?  
Top 3 headlines for the Bates would look like: Mortgage Might Fall Through; Which State (Coast) Do I Live on?; Leper Nation (or, Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease)

My boys (Noah is bouncing something off the wall in background)
Above - Baltimore (backyard/Inner Harbour);  Below - California... 
I wish I could go there and even begin to explain this hike!  We did make it to the top.

Ian's snake went everywhere with us - even had mash potatoes in the restaurant! But alas he was left in the rental car... somewhere in San Francisco...

Faces to love!

Ian has a wonderfully interesting sense of style (this shirt is about one-year too small).
