Playing at the Park!

One of the reasons I love living in Austin is days like today. It got up to 85 degrees, the sun was shining, a cool breeze was in the air. It was a gorgeous day! So we took advantage of the weather ans headed to the park. The kids had a blast and it was a fun way to spend the morning. Here are a few pictures.

18 months

Yesterday, Brooklyn turned 18 months old. Here is what she decided to do in honor of becoming such a "big girl". She poured out the entire box of cereal. Notice how she is escaping from the scene of the crime.After I cleaned up her mess, I got some pictures to mark the day. She is so cute and funny. She is also an independant little girl who likes to do things all by herself. Brooklyn is talking alot and it seems like she says new words everyday. She is growing up so fast. We love our little girl! Here are here 18 month stats:height- 31.5 inches tall, weight- 23 pounds. She is in the 25-50% for both.

Valentine's Day

I love Valentine's Day. It is such a fun day. I totally remember being a kid and picking out my Valentine's cards and deciding which message on the Valentine would go to who. And then we always decorated shoeboxes to put our Valentine's in. Fun memories. Before having kids, Derek and I rotated each year between going out(my choice) and eating in(Derek's choice). Since kids it is a special time for our family to hang out on Valentine's and eat together. This year we ate spaghetti and meatballs and then started a new traditon. We had chocolate fondue(I got this idea from Andrea). It was a HUGE hit. The kids loved it and so did Derek and I. It was fun to just hang out as a family and talk and of course dip chocolate into all sorts of goodies.

A Nice Afternoon

Yesterday, we took advantage of the AWESOME weather we have been having and went to the park at the elementary school down the road from us. Barrett and Brooklyn both love to be outside and they had a fun time playing on the playground. We even did some exploring in the woods. Barrett also loves to run, so we had several races around the track and across the baseball field. It was a fun afternoon and I am so glad we took advantage of the great weather.
