This week

THIS WEEK................

We took these cute boys to COSI

I think Kai did not find it as fun as the rest of us. =)
Kai got to take a bath with his big brothers for the first time!

Noah asked to take the training wheels off his bike so kenta did. He fell just a few timesBut within 10 minutes he had it down!

I am so proud of my big 4 year old boy!

My friend Danielle offered to let us borrow their super fun bouncy house. Of course it rained the first few days we had it. Obviosuly it can't be out in the rain, and the kids were so anxious to play with it! So we set it up in the house. Yep, my kids were the happiest kids in town =)

Just another week in the Harada's life. =)

We celebrated pie day 3.14 with a bunch of YUMMY pies and the pie-n-wood derby. Kenta and I are on the activities commitee at church, so we got to help plan this fun activity. Look at just a few of the delicious pies we had that night! There was a pie eating contest and my dad won. GO DAD! Here are some of my cool friends who participated in the contest. Becca, Danielle and Amy. Don't they look gorgeous =)

The winners of the pie eating contest got to throw pies in these boys faces! Kenta was a good sport for doing this =) My dad didn't want to throw a pie, so he passed the prize along to me. So I got to throw the pie in kentas face! =)

After...It was really enjoyable =)

All the kids had so much fun doing the pinewood derby. There were a lot of great creative cars. Kenta was one of the guys racing the cars. He thought he was pretty cool =)
Here is Noah and his 2 buddies Dash and Grant watching all the cars race. Noah was the happiest little boy that night, he can not wait to do it again he says.
Kai was quite confortable with grandma all night =)

Just some more craftiness

March's card club was held at Kristen's house and the theme this month was Thank You cards. It was a fun night as always. It's always nice to hold conversations with people over the age of 4. Don't get me wrong, conversations with my kids are quite entertaining at times, but every girl needs to have some "girl talk" sometimes =)
Here is the cute fun card Kristen came up with for our "make & take"Here is everybody else's cards

Cathy's...our new clubie =)

Now since this is a crafty post, I wanted show off this rag quilt I just made. My friend Raquel posted one that she had made on her blog a while back and I thought it was so stinkin' cute. I had been wanting to make Kai a baby blanket for a while. Noah and Eli both had baby blankets made for them by some friends and family and Kai didn't have his own baby blanket yet. So thanks to Raquel, who showed me how to do it, I made my first rag quilt....GO ME!.... =) Thanks so much for teaching me how to do this Raquel ! It took about a week of cutting and sewing during nap times and a few late nights but now baby Kai has his own baby blanket =)

This is the back of the quilt

It was alot of work, but I love how it turned out and I think I will be making many more of these in my days. =)

Let's go fly a kite

Today was awesome! I believe it got up to 73 degrees. It was a bit windy so we decided to go to the park and fly some kites and introduce Kai to the outside world. I laid kai on the blanket and the second I laid him down, the wind started blowing in his face and he started giggling. It was the first time we have heard him giggle! It was so cute =) He loved being outside and so did the rest of us! It was so much fun to get out of the house and let the kids run wild. We all had a really good day =)

Kai's Blessing day

Baby Kai was blessed this last Sunday by my dad. Kai was so good and did not make a sound, and he looked so cute in his little blessing outfit. Thank you dad for giving Kai a beautiful blessing.
