As I mentioned in the older post,
Milo was invited to an Ester party from Mother Earth school people.
The place was in Aki's neighborhood,
so Aki and Mil walked their with their baskets.
We sang songs together and appreciated spring arrival,
and made wishes with holding a magnolia flower petal.
Then, it's time to find some treasures in the yard!
Milo found this "treasure," which was not meant to be a treasure...
He found this kitty too and tried to put in his basket.
He missed it though.
Yey, he got a basket (almost) full of treasures.
He really enjoyed this Easter event and spring sunshine.
Then we had an amazing potluck lunch,
under the sakura tree.
For Japanese people, it is tradition to have a picknic
under the sakura tree (we call it "hanami") in spring.
So we could experience both Japanese and American spring celebration at the same time!
It was the perfect Easter we could have.

We finally had a day at the temperature of over 70 degree here in Portland!
Milo and his mama took an advantage of the weather and went to a hike.
Milo found some butterflies flying over him
and told his mama about it.
Being in the wood with Milo made his mama's day!
Milo loved watching the river
and climbed up the bridge without his mama's help.

He has had a weird habit lately.
Every time we goes out he claims the shoes Yuri is wearing as his shoes
and he tells her to take them off.
Then he has to walk around in her shoes.
Then this happens...
and he realizes they are too big for him.
Yes, it is kinds pain in the butt, but usually letting him try those shoes on
is quicker than trying to convince him by words and making him fussy...

Today Yuri watched Milo and Aki alone,
and here is her activity report:
1) Art and Craft
We drew some pictures and made some buttons out of them.
We made coconuts orange scones.
Aki and Milo took turns and measured all ingrediants.
They mixed all ingredients together,
and kneaded them.
Then they threw the dough onto the tray and smashed them.
(I had to reshape some of them)
3) Outdoor activities
I put Aki in the stroller, Milo in the backpack carrier, and Kip on the leash
and took all of them to Maricara park.
It was sprinkling, but they did not care and took off to the wildness!
They said "Cheese".
Not many captures were needed in the woods.
