Family Time at the Park

they were begging me for pictures in front
of this pretty bush!

love this real smile!

he LOVES the swings!

cailey and braden were able to do the monkey bars!

ephram LOVED putting the mulch, pollen,
sticks, and dirt in his mouth. getting a picture
of his smiling was hard because he was more interested
in eating everything!

goofy girl:)

taking a walk

daddy met us there for a picnic dinner!

i love this one of Cailey and Braden!

cailey kept asking me to take her picture but
then did this fake smile 'sigh'

I have been taking advantage of our beautiful spring days by taking the kids to different parks. I don't always bring the camera anymore, but did this day because I knew daddy would be meeting us for a picnic later. We spent several hours at the park playing before he came and then another hour afterwards. I LOVE this cool weather!

Date with my Big Girl

Cailey and I went on a date a couple weeks ago too! We walked 1.2 miles to Subway for dinner, ate, and then walked home. It was so nice to just be able to talk with my girl and listen to what's on her heart. I treasure the one on one time I get with all the kiddos because they are growing up so fast! Cailey and I shared a ham and cheese footlong (my half plain and hers with the works), sunchips, and she got some lemonade (i stuck to my favorite...water!) I surprised her on the way home by stopping in Food Lion and letting her pick out her favorite candy bar for dessert...3 Musketeers! Then we came home and hung out with the family in the front yard.

Date with my Big Boy

A couple weeks ago Braden and I went on a double date with Marsie and Braeden. We ate dinner at Chili's and then went to the Magic Tree House book club that the bookstore has once a month. Braden had been looking forward to it for a couple weeks! For his birthday Cailey bought him the book he needed to read for it with her own money (Eve of The Emperor Penguin). He read it a few times and was excited to talk about it and do a craft.

they can't wait!

When we got there we saw a big sign that said American Girl Book Club....uh oh! Marsie had called several times to be sure it really was the right date and apparently they were mistaken. The boys still had fun going out to eat and reading some books at the bookstore:). I love hanging out with my big boy!
