April was a crazy busy month starting with Easter with cousins. We colored, hunted, basketed, smashed a pinata, made diet coke/mentos geysers and had an amazing trip!
Other craziness in a nut shell: started yoga, ballet observation day, PreFlight, spring preschool program (where S did not sing), Daydream Camp, April Fools Day (we made brown "E"s for S!), met baby Annie, all three of us had strep, found out S is allergic to Penicillin, flag football games and Creative Boot Camp.
We also participated for the first time in Record Store Day, much to our unhappiness. I desperately wanted the first public release of my favorite album of the White Stripes Get Behind Me Satan. This special record would only be available on RSD. Months in advance we called our local record store and ask for them to please order some in. They said they would. We check again four weeks from RSD and the owner assured us he ordered three and if Bret was there early he should get one. We confirmed a week before and the owner said if Bret was there with in the first two hours he had one held for Bret. We thought we were golden. Bret was 3rd in line at 7am for the store open at 11am. He went straight to the owner who told him he didn't have the record. By the time Bret was able to get out of the store and call all the local Spokane and CDA record stores, they were all sold out. It was so disheartening.
All ended well though. I was at an event and a friend who I had told this whole story to saw me get the text from Bret saying we did not have my record. She called a record store in Illinois, where she would be vacationing the next week, had them hold one for her friend who lived a town a way, who went and paid for the record. She then brought me my precious record the next week. Needless to say I have an awesome friend and we're in the market for a new local record store.
On to championships, lasts days of preschool and local music...
