Spring Fever

The week started off cold and even included another missed day of school due to icy roads, but it ended beautifully!!  We are looking at 50s and 60s from this point on!!  And then bring on summer!  Ok, I won't get ahead of myself, but I am so glad winter seems to be over!  

Ryan attended his first birthday party yesterday.  It was at Monkey Joe's and he was SO excited!  Andy took Drew and Kayley to a school night at Home Depot on Friday night so I took Ryan with me to the grocery store and he told almost EVERYONE that he was going to Monkey Joe's.  I have never seen him that excited.  He got a little confused a couple of times and told people it was for his birthday.  :-)  

He went down this slide at least 20 times

Kayley and Ryan entertained us last night.  Kayley was a horse first.

Then Ryan was the horse.

You would think with all the nice weather I was talking about, I would have pictures of the kids outdoors, but I didn't take any pictures on our walk today.  I was just too excited to think about taking any pictures!

Fun with Friends!!

Two of my friends from law school, Mel and Angela, came to visit on Saturday with their kids.  It was so good to see them and their adorable kids!  It was a quick visit, but a lot of fun.  The kids had fun playing (when Ryan wasn't crying about having to share his toys) and Mel, Angela and I had fun catching up.  The weather didn't cooperate (what's new!) so Mel and Sam had to drive back Saturday night instead of Sunday, but everyone made it home safely thankfully.  Here are a few pictures from our day:

Is it Summer Yet?

The last few weeks have been bitter cold so we have been going a little stir crazy.  My mom came for a visit a couple of weeks ago and I am sure she was wishing we were visiting them in Phoenix instead!  Drew and Kayley were excited to show off for Grandma at swimming lessons:

Ryan had fun showing us different emotions:

While I was working on this post, Ryan came over and watched his video.  He wanted to do it again so here you go:

Last weekend, Andy's dad came for a visit.  While Andy and his dad did things around the house, I took the kids to the school carnival, the Launch.  It was nice to have something to do since it was so COLD outside!
