We did actually get out of the house some in February...I just did a lousy job of keeping up with everything. But now that I'm not pregnant anymore life seems to be much more manageable and easy.
So here is a little of what we did:
Silly Safari with lots of friends--kids loved petting uncommon animals.
Went to a birthday party at Gymboree. Selah could climb on anything and be safe! She loved it!
We always say Evangeline is our little gymnast so this was right up her ally. She didn't stop tumbling, dancing, or running the whole time.
Ari was almost too big but still had fun.
On one unusually warmer day we ventured out to a playground even though it was misting and soggy. We didn't care though because we were ready to get out!
Then we went to my favorite for breakfast one morning--Patachou.
And even though we keep it sunny and 75 in our house all year long, the kids would huddle over our vents to get warm. Maybe because they insist on wearing summer clothes all year long?
And then there was a significant amount of snow. So much for the warmer weather with a playground. But AJ took the kids over to church to sled and they had lots of fun- it was Selah's first time.
It was pretty deep so she had a hard time staying up. But she didn't care one bit, she loved being out in the snow.
The kids kept busy for a few days with these paper airplanes, thanks AJ!
And Ari had fun building this fort with his friend.
Then there was more snow and stayed cold for so long that we had snow to play in for a few weeks. Selah wanted to go out all the time.
All the snow in our cul-de-sac gets pushed to one area so there was a giant mound the kids built a fort in.
They also managed to make the largest snowballs I have ever seen.
The snow was fun while it lasted but hopefully we are on to spring now.
