Thanks for coming, Gigi!

It was so much fun to have my mom in town last month. Thankfully the weather cooperated, and we enjoyed some gorgeous days outside. The boys loved playing games with Gigi, and reading lots of books together. We had a picnic outside for the first time this season, and enjoyed playing in the yard.

Will and Graham's preschool held a Spring program was held that same week, so it worked out perfectly that my Mom was here...what a fun memory that she was able to share with us. In addition to Dave and I and my mom being there, Dave's dad came (his mom wasn't able to attend, because she was still in Sioux Falls helping out with Jude), and our good friend Diane. Graham's class sang a song called "Kitchen Band Parade," and they marched onto the stage banging on pots and pans with wooden spoons - it was so cute. Will's class sang, "Turn Your Body Around" while dancing and waving colorful streamers, they sang "God Bless America," and also recited The Lord's Prayer. The boys both did such a great job - we were so proud of them!

My friend, Loree came back into town for a week, and hung out with my mom and me and the kids for a day. It was so great seeing her again. Loree and my mom played baseball with Will, and blew bubbles with Graham :) My mom was gracious enough to stay at the house while Macy was napping, so Loree and I could take a walk with the boys. She wanted to treat them to ice cream at our favorite gelato shop just a few blocks up the road. Such a fun day, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect.

We're enjoying temps 20 degrees above normal all's been amazing. I have the windows wide open and can hear the birds chirping and can see the leaves starting to sprout on the trees. Although I can't complain about the mild winter we had, I absolutely love and very much look forward to the Spring and Summer months. I love not being cooped up anymore, and feel like I can breathe again!

We took a day trip to Sioux Falls, SD to meet our little nephew, Jude a few Saturdays ago. It was a quick trip, but wonderful being able to meet our kids's first official cousin :) He sure is a handsome little feller ;-) Congrats again, Dan and're going to be such awesome parents!
