April was an insanely busy month. As the title suggests, I am so surprised how busy I am despite the lack of stuff to do here! I suppose that's why I'm so busy....I feel the need to create things or go to every event to give the kids stuff to do!
The kids enjoyed doing the crafts that Gammy and Grandaddy sent in their Easter baskets. Plus, they both got "seed kits" which was perfect since my friend, Kim, is leading the charge to establish community gardens at the embassy just in time for Earth Day (April 22). More on that and other embassy events in April in another post!!

|Workman glasses, power ranger suit, and cowboy boots. Gotta love it!|
We had two birthday parties - both Spiderman!! First, we had Ismael's party. Max and Siena kept talking about the face painting and pinata. (They love pinatas!!)
|Enjoying the sugar!|
|Ibrahim making sure all the candy is out of the pinata...and Max right there to get it!|
|Playing "Pass the Parcel"|
|Siena refused to open the "parcel" in front of anyone else!|
|I am always so scared the kids are going to bounce right off these trampolines!!|
