The 20th... on time!

The 20th again... and this time, I'm on time with the post!
(You can thank my mom, and her never ending harassment.)

This first photo was taken on the morning of St. Patrick's Day. We clearly had not done hair yet (sheesh, Lilly!), but the kids were very excited that some mischievous leprechauns had visited us overnight. They gave us each kisses, which we knew because they left green hearts on our hands. They also turned our milk green and our pancakes green. It was pretty silly, to say the least.

The weather has been gorgeous, which means lots of outside playtime! This, of course, leads to scrapes and bruises.
My parents are redoing their living room, so my dad thought it would be funny to pretend he was a picture of himself, using this huge frame. Once the kids figured out it was him, they wanted to pretend they were a picture too.
Yesterday, Lilly got to go to her friend, Olivia's, birthday party. I was so proud of her writing (and drawing) on the card she picked out.
Ready to party!
Handsome boy! Kendra was so nice and volunteered to watch Zac while I took Lilly to the party! Thanks sister!
Lilly had a blast at the party, and was very well behaved. Also, she rocked the pinata!
And, today. We have done NOTHING but play outside this morning, up until nap/rest time. We played in the backyard, then took the bike and scooter for a spin around the neighborhood. Then, back to the backyard. They wanted to take another walk, this time without their vehicles.
Oh My God Aren't They Cute Holding Hands!?!

Please know that they held hands for all of 12 seconds. Still, it was super cute, and I caught some on camera. Win!

Busy days

We've been busy around here, but I figured it was time for a post! It's just kind of a random assortment...
First, look at this sunset from tonight. Lilly asked me to take a picture of it, and who can say no to that?

A couple of weeks ago we went to Phoenix and had a great time visiting my friends Kim and Matt and little girl Kaylie, then going to transportation Day and having a fun evening with Natalie and her family and Laura and her family. Whew it was a busy weekend.
While there, we went to Hot Dog On A Stick, and Lilly got this hat!
Speaking of Lilly, she went on her birthday date with Kendra and Stevie the other day. I could copy pictures from her blog and repost them, but I think I'll just send you over there. Click HERE to see that post. She had a blast!

This is a picture of Zac throwing a fit in the grocery store the other day. It didn't last long, but I snapped the picture to show his first girlfriend one day.

Here is a much more flattering picture of my little man.
The kids and I have made a habit of getting bagels for breakfast about twice a month or so. I love bagels, they love bagels, plus it's good practice of restaurant manners. Here's a couple pics from our last breakfast date.

Last night, the kids spent the night at my parents' house. After running early this morning, I drove up to see them finishing their walk. Lilly walked Bruski the whole way! She's getting so big.

It's finally nice enough to take evening walks after dinner! Also, finally we can do so sans stroller! The other day, I snapped this picture.

Then, tonight, I took these closeups since both kids had haircuts today!
Zac looking handsome:

And Lilly with her beautiful bangs.

Happy Spring!
