With Spring has shown her lovely face again in our world. It might have been a brief appearance, but I know she will be returning with her grace and loveliness many more times. The arrival of spring has left us with lots of beautiful flower blooming everywhere! Our orchard teetering on the edge of blooming wonderment! Did I mention how much I love spring! I think that since having children I even love it more. Of course I bet that my spring babies might have something to do with my increased love!
Just recently I ventured out with only my baby girl. Where did we go you ask...Well, Goodwill! I have been there so very since the beginning of the year. But, usually rolling up to the back and off loading our crap to them. Well, this time I seized the opportunity to see other peoples crap that they donated to see if it could replace the stuff we let go... I did restrain myself, but we did come home with this new treasure. Devon calls it a motorcycle. We did not correct him. Hahaha! He loves this Dora bike! Wow, he can't reach the pedals quite yet, but loves to schooch all over the gravel driveway with this guy. And the best news was it was only $3.99. OMG, I am always going to check out GW before I pay full price on any kids toy!
Isabelle is loving the nice weather we are having. But, I feel she might just be a fall baby at heart. When she sees a fallen leaf on the ground, she instantly crawls over to it to see how it tastes. I keep telling myself it is organic! But, I really love her curiosity and total fearlessness. How can two kids be so different?
Devon learned he can move the white lawn chairs. Go dude! However, this resulted in a small booboo on his lip. But he is a tough guy! I don't know what about these two photos I like, but the chair is really working for me?
Both kids are getting great at "helping" us in the shop. I wonder if child labor laws apply to your own kids?
The many faces of my little dude! Such joy and freedom. I only wish adults were this apparent.
With April right around the corner, I thought it was fitting to show you the insanity that is my bookkeeping! Well, it is quite possible a busy year last year and maybe I get a pass on it? Well, I think I did quite good since I did NOTHING all year long. But, I think I had almost all the receipts to record!
We made our way to the water the past week. There was a tiny patch of sand during low tide that revealed itself by a playground. Of course, I had to let Devon and Isabelle explore this awesomeness.
Both kids got a bit sandy during our excursion...Mostly due to Devon and his naughty habit of throwing stuff right now.
The kids were invited to one of there friends birthday party. One thing they LOVED was licking or sucking on every piece of fake food that was there to play with. I had to tell the mom to be sure to hose it off after we left.
As you can see, Isabelle was "enjoying" herself. Balloon and all!
Devon found a digger! I can hear the angels singing now!
Isabelle is turning 11 months old tomorrow! I just can't believe it! She seems so small and baby-ish to me. I guess Devon had the unfair situation of having to get kicked out of the baby seat soo soon since Isabelle was on the way. It is really nice to have Isabelle be a baby that much longer. I now know how fleeting "baby" is and I really want to cherish every single moment of it.
Have a great day!
