Ahh...Spring:butterflies and scooters


The weather has been wonderful and I decided to let the girls take their scooters to the park. I thought they would ride around the track with them but turns out just the scoot to the playground wore them out. They sure are cute when they scoot though. June was a bit slow so I let her ride on it while I pulled her to the playground. Then, a few days later I made this cute spring breakfast for them. I adapted it from a blog I read. Biscuits- cut in half and put round sides together. spread a bit of jelly on top and sprinkle colored sugar. Bake according to directions on package. When they are done, squirt whipped cream for the body and use whatever you have to make antennae and face(I used orange peel). I added sliced stawberries to the wings.

All About Kids (Spring '10)




This past Friday we went to All About Kids again. We haven't been in probably a year so it was due time. One of Bay's favorite friends, Kat, was there. The girls are old enough now that I can just let them go. I try to make sure I can see them from a distance. Bay is so fast and moves frequently so I didn't see as much of her as I did June. June is a bit slower so I was able to take a couple of videos of her. Here she is on the balancing beam.

New

I am loving that it is Spring weather. I love seeing all the new sprouts! It gets me going which means the projects are cluttering my head trying to get out. Some projects that I can't stop thinking about are:
sanding/painting bunk beds
building beds
building a "window" end table
fixing the first window table
art shelves
repainting a few things(walls, baseboards)
daddy building fence
daddy building swing set
sewing ottoman covers
I guess we got some building to do! Feels good to get it out of my head for a minute

Comedy Show

Saturday night Tony and I went to see Brian Reagan. He is a comedian with clean jokes. SOOOOOO funny! He has had a few shows on comedian central lately. We were really excited about going. We have been thinking that going out to eat is boring and we should try to do new things together. Tony's dad and Koko came over to watch the girls. Tony and I went out to eat and then rushed to the Brown theatre. We had to park on the top level of a parking garage. We ran down 4 flights of stairs and around the corner to the front door. I was wearing heels too. Then we squeezed into our seats which were in the center of the row. I hate that. having people get up to let you by. anyway the people on each side of us were the type to laugh at EVERYTHING. If you are that type that is wonderful. I guess you must enjoy life more than I do. This problem only lasted through the guy that opened for Brian Reagan. Because Brian Reagan is so funny we were laughing at everything he said. The first guy wasn't too bad but he mumbled a lot so I couldn't hear him. I forgot my camera so no pictures this time. When the show was over we walked up the many stairs to our car and then waited for all the cars below us to file out and leave. It was a good time. The girls don't like it when we go out. They don't cry when we leave but they have their moments. Bay had hers earlier that day at naptime. Crying, saying she didn't want me to go on a date. Then June cries the next night thinking we were putting them to bed and leaving her. dang kids, chill out! Mommy and daddy love each other. I tried to convince Bay that it was good for us to go out on dates because we love each other and she definitely wants a mommy and daddy who love each other. I think she got it but she told me later, " Mom, I don't want you to go out on a date ever ever again". Sorry about your luck kid. If you have never heard Brian Reagan go to youtube.com and search his name.
