So ... Carter and Lesley are driving in the car and a very pristine corvette passes them. Carter has been in the mood lately of saying "I like that car. Can you buy it for me when I'm 5 years old?" This particular occasion was no different but Lesley decided to elaborate.
"That's a corvette, Carter. It's faster than a Mustang ..."
"Then I'll drive a Corvette, and Dad can drive a Mustang, and then I'll beat him."
I might be feeding this kid too much competition. Can't have my own flesh and blood show me up, now can I? It's the perfect justification. Lamborghini, here I come!
At least my kid will continue to look up to me for all the cool things I have ... or in this case, look forward to me ... a long ways forward.

This one wont be too hard to get too. Can you see the infant car seat? I hope it will still be safe for him to ride in!

We had a good time, but probably will be the last time until fall. Since we are in the high 90's already.

My mom and Carter planted seeds and it has been fun to watch them grow.
Then Derek, Demie, and Harlie came over for dinner. We had another egg hunt with Carter and Harlie. The kids had tons of candy thanks to Grandpa of course.
I am thankful for the Easter holiday and we can teach our children of the Savior and his Redeeming love for us.

It is called the Light Rail here in Phoenix. Carter knows it as a train. Public transportation between cities and it looks like a train so a train it is.Carter got to ride on the Light Rail because he finally has been sleeping through the night and not waking us up. I know I promised him the city bus ride but the day we had planned to ride the city bus about 900 of the bus drivers were on strike. That meant that only a few buses were actually running. We went on the "train" instead. We parked the car, road the train to Tempe, and got off and ate lunch. We had an all day pass so we decided to head to downtown Phoenix. We got off there and walked around and came back. Carter had a good time. He got bored toward the end because it was crowded and we couldn't pick our seats so he couldn't really see out. Once everyone cleared out we switched seats so he could see out. That made him enjoy the ride more and he didn't want to get off. We had a good time.

This is Carter coming out of the slide.

Carter has been waking up in the middle of the night EVERY NIGHT! For the past week and a half 2 or 3 times at night. I just don't know what to do. He gets up having to go to the bathroom, or because he is hungry, or he can't put his blanket on (which we have taught him and he can do it himself he just wants an excuse to wake up). We are so frustrated. I get up in the morning so exhausted and Dave already can't sleep. Do you wonder yet why I titled this post "city bus". Because Carter likes buses. Every time we see a bus, "that's a city bus" or "that's a school bus".

This is the first year that I have actually thought about goal, written them out and am conscious about them most everyday. It feels good. To actually have something to work towards.
