Family Life

Lots of adventures

I have so many pictures and I am just loading them all into one post.

Shortly after we moved here, my parents came and visited, partly to bring us our car that we had left behind. They also brought a cousin along with them, which was a surprise for MM.

This is where I live now. It’s beautiful. The lake level has been going up steadily.

IMG_0046

MM loved playing with her cousin. Here they are at the park.

IMG_0051

Here is my dad.

IMG_0052

Here is BB.

We’ve had lots of good time spent at home together as a family. Sometimes we watch movies.

IMG_0078

And we cuddle.

IMG_0079

And we hop on pop.

So spring has not been very agreeable. Lots of snow. We woke up to this one day:

IMG_0087

This was in March. I don’t remember if they had a snow day at the schools for this snow storm, or for another snow storm. Get it together, weather. We want spring.

IMG_0094

But it’s fun to go outside no matter what the weather.

IMG_0104

And we did build our snowman.

IMG_0106

More cuddling.

IMG_0107

This area is now covered in water.

IMG_0111

MM got her foot wet.

IMG_0112

We went to a science museum and had quite a good time together.

IMG_0122

My kids love playing together.

And this is from making Easter eggs. Which we did the day before Easter.

IMG_0134

Crayons and food coloring.

I didn’t boil that many eggs, but it was fun. That’s about all we did for Easter. We barely had any candy, and I very much liked it that way. There are so many holidays with candy. I don’t like candy. I don’t like my kids when they have candy.

I like them like this:

We read stories together every day. This is right before bed time:

IMG_0154

And look, another snow storm. I think this is actually the one with the snow day, not the last one.

IMG_0156

So BB picked through his toys and got out the cars to play with. He can stand on his own now. He’s taken a few steps even, but not walking yet.

IMG_0158

I love baby smiles, don’t you?

IMG_0159

Still snow! We were going outside and writing notes in our journals about what we saw.

IMG_0208

MM loves making funny faces.

IMG_0210

BB does what I tell him to better.

IMG_0212

Little scientist.

IMG_0214

I love his dimple.

IMG_0216

Laughing.

IMG_0225

MM loves to slide down the banister.

IMG_0229

BB likes to sing sometimes.

IMG_0232

And we have deer in our yard constantly. I’m not sure about gardening this year.

IMG_0257

Again, hopping on pop.

IMG_0276

SR loves to stick his tongue out.

IMG_0283

BB loves this hat.

IMG_0286

MM sings too sometimes.

IMG_0291

And we play with dinosaurs. And trucks. And take my books off the shelf.

IMG_0295

Hide and seek is a regular occurrence. My best hiding place recently was behind a snow suit.

IMG_0302

We went on a hike. When there wasn’t snow and it felt like spring instead of winter.

IMG_0307

MM and BB walked some of the way. But not all of the way.

IMG_0312

In the wetlands.

IMG_0315

I love hiking.

IMG_0319

BB can get quite energetic.

IMG_0322

BB again.

IMG_0333

There is a picture of me. I am happy because I am hiking.

IMG_0334

SR loved hiking too.

IMG_0338

Here is yet another picture of me.

IMG_0351

My boys like each other.

IMG_0354

MM wasn’t always happy when she had to walk.

IMG_0362

I’m at the end of the post. There are other things we have been doing I don’t have pictures of: going to church, playing with friends, visiting people, going to tumbling class (MM does well, BB just likes to run very fast all over the place and he doesn’t participate beyond somersaults), going to an hour a week preschool program (we learned about metamorphosis today), going to the library, story time, etc.

So many good things in life. There are always good things in life if you choose to notice them.
