Outside Play

It was a beautiful weekend here in CT.  Ben wanted to play outside as much as possible, so we broke out some of last years backyard toys and got to playing!  Turns out he has outgrown his play car and told me, "Mommy, can you call Mimi?  I need a new car."  He clearly remembers who gave him his first car and expects another one whenever he needs it.  Let's hope this doesn't last into the teen years!

We did a lot of bubbles and a lot of shoveling and raking.  I think we are in need of a sandbox and some Tommy toys.  I'll get right on that...

First Haircut

Saturday was a big day for us - Tommy had his first haircut!  He looks so much older now.  A definite transition into toddler-hood.

Spring is here!

Spring is finally here (really) and we are so excited to get outside! The sun is still up after school so there is plenty of play time. Today we broke out some patio/yard toys and had some fun before dinner.

Any good outdoor toys/games/ideas for summer fun?

Free Photo Shoot

When we took this amazing Christmas photo last December, we were automatically entered in a drawing for a free photo shoot with the same photo studio.  Amazingly, we won.  (And so did all my other friends who took pictures with that Santa, but I digress...)

So, off we went to a family photo shoot a few weeks ago.  It was a rough morning.  Early on a Sunday was the only time we could all manage to get together to do it.  So, the pictures weren't the best, but we did get this one gem.  He's a keeper. ; )

A Few Weeks in Photos

With Easter, sickness, travel, spring break, etc, our lives have never been busier.  So, it's come down to just some pictures.  Suffice to say we are happy and healthy (generally!) and looking forward to spring when we all have birthdays and lots of time to catch up and relax a bit. 

Tommy is now waving all the time and sticking his tongue out whenever there isn't a paci in his mouth!

Ben cheesin' really hard for a great pic

First sunny and warm weekend of the Spring - everyone was at the playground

Blurry but handsome Ben

Adorable Tommy!

Loves to play!  Does this look like a kid with a double ear infection to you?!

Deciding which book to read.  AKA destroying the playroom shelves!

Playtime in the backyard!
