First Swim of the Season!

We are SO happy to see the weather warming up. The kids couldn't wait to go swimming at the pool ... and so we had our first swim of the season. Woo Hoo! We will probably spend a lot of time there this summer (They always take great naps when we're done, making their mom extra happy). We love summer!

Bowling Fun

We took the kids bowling for the first time. It was hilarious! When we gave Joshua his bowling shoes, he said, "These shoes are awesome!" They didn't have shoes or a ball small enough for Livi, so she basically just cheered us on and gave a million high-fives throughout the night. I won't tell you our final scores because that would be humiliating, but let's just say Joshua was winning for most of the game. I guess we need to brush up on our skills. :-)

I took the kids in for pictures a couple weeks ago- Joshua for his 4 year photos, and Livi for her 2 year photos. There is truly nothing more stressful than a portrait studio! At least we got some cute shots out of it. :-)

Mom Day

I had a fabulous Mother's Day. Jason and the kids spoiled me rotten. They surprised me with flowers, candy, cards and a custom-made necklace by Joshua (Very Fancy!) My favorite part of the day was lying in bed, listening to them make breakfast for me. Jason was trying to be all quiet and secretive, but that's pretty much impossible with our kids. It made me laugh. I feel so blessed to be a Mom!

Happy Birthday Livi!

Livi turned 2 today! We had a fun-filled weekend to celebrate. Yesterday, we took her to Build-A-Bear, and she was IN HEAVEN! I think she hugged every animal in the store. After some tough decision-making (There were walls and walls of outfits and accessories ... how's a girl to choose?), she picked a Tinkerbell costume, complete with wand and wings. Today we had family over for dinner and a princess party. She loved opening her gifts and blowing out the candle on her cake ... 4 times. Happy Birthday Livi! We love you!!
