Spring has sprung...finally

So the winter that won't quit seems to be receding which is good because this week was spring break for Annie.  That was reason enough for me to take a couple of days off & hang with my kidlets.

We started it off with a chilly rainy Saturday so we spent the majority of the day at home.  We got out for dinner & to run a few errands that evening though & Annie & I were lucky enough to be accompanied by not one but two heroes.


Then Sunday we went to church & napped.  Let me take a minute to clarify - we went to church & afterward napped. ;)
 

When we woke up we decided to go see the Thunder play the Mavericks that evening. 


We had a good time.  Denver watched & napped some while Annie cheered her heart out putting her own spin on some of the cheers such as chanting O-S-U instead of O-K-C.  

 

Sadly our cheering did not help because Dallas soundly beat them.
 

On Monday we ate lunch at Annie's favorite place Chick-fil-a and found what Annie declared was "the last toy I will ever want." (Whew! Santa can rest easy now.) So she spent her Christmas money & proceeded to work on her play-doh skills for the rest of the day.
 

While Denver tried to figure out how a walker works & met Cookie Monster.


Day 2 of spring break consisted of a car picnic because we live in the state where the wind comes sweeping down the plain. Followed by fun at the park.
 



 

 

I went back to work on Wednesday & Nana came to stay & babysit which is a treat for all of us.

Now we are at the end of the break and there are signs of spring popping up everywhere.  This means the end of the school year and more relaxed pace of summer is in sight.  Yay!

Sesame Street LIVE

Because as parents sometimes you take one for the team...
 
 
The kiddos liked it
 



Well, for the most part.  Annie has always been suspect/scared of people dressed as large characters & Denver crashed early on. But Brynny Bear loved every minute.
 

 
It is also worth noting that we were in fact THOSE people who were walking through the streets of Bricktown at 8:30 PM back to our hotel with 2 small children & a baby in tow.
 
However, there is no need to be concerned about what anyone we came upon thought about our mad parenting skills because clearly the two gigantic Elmo/Cookie Monster helium balloons we were wrangling in the Oklahoma wind sealed the deal on how much we cared about our little ones & how classy we are.







34

So I had a birthday...
 
I am now 34 which I look every minute of and more in the above picture because it was the end of a busy week and not even actually my birthday but we get excited about cake, I mean, birthdays so we partied as soon as Philip arrived.

Confession: I'm not sure where I thought I'd be at 34 years ago (and probably I didn't think specifically about 34 because it's not really a landmark birthday) but I'm so pleased with where God has put me and the sweet people who have helped me get there and are beside me now.
