A Glimpse of Spring

There have been glimpses of Spring this week, but we have been stuck at school or work.  I was hoping that it would be a nice weekend after all the rain of yesterday and mother nature complied.  We had gymnastics this morning and Emma you were quite the monkey.  One of the stations was the rope and you were just supposed to hold on and tuck your knees into you, well the next thing we see if you have climbed yourself half-way up the knotted rope.  I really should have snapped a picture, but Daddy and I were a little shocked and laughing at the same time.  One of the coaches came over and got you down.

After gymnastics we had breakfast and came home.  It had warmed up since the morning and you ladies wanted to play in the yard and then asked if you could ride your bikes.  You have not been able to ride your bikes much since your birthday and today was a great day to do that.

what a gorgeous day
You ladies are getting much better at peddling and getting started by yourselves.  Emma you have even started to peddle without sitting to use all your momentum.

It is really nice that we live on the cul de sac and you ladies can just ride around in circles with very little traffic. Our neighbors even come out and move the cars so you have more room, that or they are afraid of you running into the cars :) Hopefully this weather continues and we can get out more often.  Maybe mommy and daddy will get  some bikes and we can all explore around.

Valentine's Day 2014

I love Valentine's Day.  It was Valentine's Day 5 years ago that we found out we were expecting and since then this has always been an amazing holiday for us.  I love putting together little love baskets for you ladies.
Daddy surprised you with cupcakes and roses for mommy :)
Since you were having a party at school you got to wear party clothes and your new bubblegum necklaces.
my loves on love day

Speaking of school this is the third year we have done the non-candy valentine's and it is super fun searching Pinterest to find what we are going to do.  Lily you brought loopy straws that we found and Emma brought pencils.  I think they turned out super cute.

When I got to work I had a present on my desk from Peggy.  When you ladies had your day of fun with Peggy and Chris one of the things that you did was paint a picture so Peggy and Chris took parts of the pictures you painted and framed them for me.  They are so sweet and I love them.
We decided to go out to dinner with the entire town and after 3 hours dinner was done and we were home. It was such a great day!
