Spring Has Sprung!!

Spring has definitely sprung!! There are buds on the trees, daffodils popping, tulips in full bloom, and I think we officially skipped winter! We've been taking advantage of outdoor fun! Here are some weekly high lights...

I've been in spring cleaning mode, so here's my little helper who I spied on my ladder when I wasn't looking!

The spring cleaning meant getting every and all cobwebs GONE, and this is the contraption I made to help reach the high spots....

...but then it made my swiffer duster GONE. Took some creativity to reach that high and get it unstuck.

And even though it was beautiful enough to wash seat pads and quilts, I couldn't compete with the KS wind. That day on our local weather, our warning was 'extreme winds-may cause power outages'! Yikes!

Abi at 6 months on our picnic. This was the same day of the high winds. We took the kids to Keats Park, but then could barely eat our dinner because of the wind, so we had to go back home and play inside.

Alan blessed Isaac with his VERY OWN LAPTOP! This was Alan's very first laptop, and currently Isaac has set up his office (laptop, play laptop, cell phone, mouse) on the stone in front of the fireplace. He "checks his emails" daily ;)

Abi has started sitting on her own for a few minutes at a time!!

...and started rolling over during naptime, which she doesn't mean to do and leaves her very frustrated (and mommy frustrated since she's not sleeping!).

Abi has graduated to the high chair for her cereal with her bottle, which means Isaac now has his very own big boy booster seat! He's even been wanting to sit there during his snack time ;)

Yesterday it got up to about 72, so after I did a photosession, we grabbed the kiddos and headed back to the same park as the session to burn off energy. Here's my little sun-baby with her first sun hat on ;)

...and eating her first picnic bottle ;)

...while daddy and Isaac run wild in the tall grass.

We've never hiked the trails at Warner Park (didn't realize what all was back there!), so we strapped Abi on me, and Isaac got to ride on Daddy's shoulders. We soon realized it was about a mile hike around the park. We decided carrying all this extra weight was the equivalent of a Biggest Loser workout.

Daddy thought Abi was exceptionally cute today and wanted a picture, but Abi wasn't in her modeling mood...

...and got even more frustrated when she pulled her bow down :)

Now off to do more laundry, edit session photos, and change diapers!
