William all dressed up and ready to go to his first job interview.
Karen, sitting on the porch sorting through her gardening equipment and supplies, enjoys watching a woodpecker in a nearby tree.
A woodpecker looks down from the tree at the bird feeder hanging from a post on our front porch, deciding if it is safe to come down and partake while Karen is sitting nearby.
William tries to hide from Gordon's ever-present camera while watching a tennis match.
Thomas starts to assemble the entertainment center for the apartment that he and Erin moved into over the weekend.
Daniel stands guard—well, sits guard—over our new trailer, which was used to move furniture into Tom ans Erin's apartment, but which will eventually be turned into a another camper.
Ambush wants desperately to catch the squirrel on the deck. The squirrel wants desperately to steal the bird food hanging from the balcony joists. Ultimately, the squirrel made out slightly better than the cat.
Thomas looks around the apartment that he and Erin are moving into at the end of this week.
William takes off his hoodie in the sudden wave of warm weather we got. He was watching the girls' tennis match.
Gordon mixes up some egg creams, which have neither egg nor cream, for the family. Odd as they are, they are also very tasty.
Karen removed a kitchen drawer to do a little spring cleaning, and Sukkie decided that it was a new cat cubbyhole.
Tom gives Erin a little cuddle after bowling.
Gordon gets a high five from Danny and smiles from Tom after a perfect strike.
Karen and William work on decorations for an unusual class project: a model of a cell in the form of a cake.
William's biology project: a cake decorated to represent a cell. The decorations were hard and unappetizing, and stuck to the parchment. But the cake was moist and light, and the frosting fluffy and chocolatey.
Nature sent us an April Fool's joke. This storm dropped about as much snow as the last one, but without the high winds this one was easier to cope with.
William walks back from the lane before his ball even passes the pins from the gutter. He knows when to move on.
Thomas offers some bowling advice to Danny, trying to hit something other than the gutter for his second ball of the frame.
Karen is not celebrating the one-pin throw she just made; she's just sharing a joke with Erin.
We had to wait for awhile for a lane at the bowling alley, so Tom and Danny spent some time using Danny's tablet to watch a live video of a videogame tournament.
Erin and Thomas arrive a bit late for a bowling date with the family. They stopped for coffee (well, Erin had coffee; Thomas had something else).
William and Erin hold a Jedi battle with snow shovels, complete with fire from the sky.
Karen doles out See's chocolates to Tom and Erin. These are rare treats for us; we have to have them shipped because there are no See's retailers in New Hampshire.
Thomas with a slice of chocolate truffle pie that Karen and William made for him for his birthday. He had already had cake with dinner, so he decided to take this slice to work to have at his meal break.
Danny made some strawberry shortcake for us for dessert.
Erin and Thomas look on while Danny and William finish some of the shoveling on the morning after our blizzard.
William works hard to return a serve in his first tennis practice of the season, which was indoors (courtesy fo the local private high school) because of the horrible weather.
Karen adds meatballs to the pizza that was an early dinner for Gordon, and a late lunch for everyone else, before Gordon went off for and overnight work stay at the resort.
Daniel shovels the blizzard that interrupted our nice, warm late Winter.
William makes himself dinner while trying to ignore his father who's playing around with a new camera.
William shows off his knife skills cutting up a pineapple for our breakfast.
Karen had a morning doctor's appointment, and Gordon had the day off, so they went off together and, after the appointment, prowled around a couple of antique shops for fun.
Danny shows his new haircut to Karen, already anticipating the warmer weather. Even haircuts are hard to arrange on our current schedule.
Danny enjoys some time on the deck in a scene from Spring. Except that this picture was taken on February 25th. Weird.
Karen makes some sketches of the new, larger trailer she wants to build on the only available surface: the take-home box from the restaurant.
William shovels the huge pile of snow that accumulated on the back deck during one-and-a-half storms (a half storm because Gordon had shoveled it off in the middle of the first storm).
Danny scrapes snow and ice off the front deck.
"No, I wasn't even considering getting onto the table. How could you think such a thing? I'm just innocently sitting on the arm of this chair."
Danny and William shovel out the cars from the latest overnight snowstorm.
Karen and Gordon went out for Valentine's Day. Karen, ever the architect, wanted pictures of the interesting shutters at the restaurant.
Gordon came in with snow in his hair from shoveling on the back deck. He was trying to stay ahead of the latest storm.
William got new glasses. They are similar to the glasses he had before; the lenses are a little bigger, the frame a bit thicker, and it has a dashing greenish-yellow highlight on the earpiece.
Gordon got new glasses. He decided to go with a very different frame style. He was looking for John Lennon glasses, but this is as close as he could get.
Gordon at the his new job, working the front desk at a timeshare.
