Date Night With Bryce
Since Bryce is a pretty huge Wild Kratts fan, when I heard they were going to be in town for a live performance, I splurged on tickets and realized it was worth it when I told him about it and he was counting down the days and anxiously awaiting when he'd get to see the Kratt brothers and wishing for a ride in the Tortuga.
Dinner before the show at a little pizza restaurant. He was a wonderful date and exclaimed that it was the BEST PIZZA EVER.
This one-on-one time is something I treasure and try to do with each of the little ones. But even when we don't have the chance to get away on our own - I am trying to focus on being present and in the moment.
This weekend it was gorgeous outside. Spent Saturday at the zoo, and Sunday was the lazy-around-the-house day. While outside in the backyard I started to ask "What should we do today?" and i stopped myself and said "This is it - this is what we're doing today"....soaking up the sun and enjoying the time together.
Snapshots of some of the Memorable Moments Lately:
|Wild Child that can't be left alone for a moment...|
|Rough housing with Big Sister and Falling off the bed = 3 Weeks In A Boot.|
|First Cozy Coupe Ride|
|Terrible picture - but this is when we watched Momma Gorilla cuddling with her baby, then putting them on her back for a piggy back ride. So excited about this new addition to the Fort Worth Zoo!|
|"Mommy, Look at me. I build a helicopter." - He sure did...this little master builder is always impressing me.|
|This book was one of my favorites when I was younger. So neat to see my kiddos enjoying it!|
|Sisters Shopping at Aldi|
|Lil Lamb on the Run|

Valentine's Day Fun!
|Bryce worked hard on Valentine's cards for all his friends. "Hayden likes airplanes, so I'm putting a lot of airplane stickers on his....." - so sweet!|
|Valentine's Day 2016 - Everyone Smile......classic. :) Brianne was giving an uber cheese and Bryce was not feeling it...at least Brooke was happy.|
|Two crazy pugs contribute to our constant chaos...|
|Monster Truck Jam!|
|Brooke's First Drum Lesson....|
|Flashcard fun - she loves her letters!|
Brooke is getting close to taking her first steps (it's possible daycare tried to tell me she took her first 2 steps today but I'm choosing to believe it will be this weekend when Mark and I are watching her)... :)
That's a glimpse at what we've been up to thus far this year....staying busy and soaking it all up. They grow too fast!!!
