Water Baby

We enjoyed a lovely visit at Grandpa Russ and Grandma Brenda's house to celebrate Grandma Brenda's birthday. Owen adores the water and had a great time splashing around their pool!

When there's a will...

There's a way!

I was pretty determined to get this swimming pool home today. Unfortunetely it wouldn't fit in the back of the escape so I had to get creative. It was a slow drive home but we made it!

Wednesdays with Hailey

Wednesdays with Hailey started last fall during my first Moms In Motion team. Owen and I would meet Aly and Hailey at Taylor's school. Aly and I would push Hailey and Owen for about a 30-40 minute walk and then we would stop at a park so the kids could play. We all enjoyed each others company so much that when the weather turned cold and rainy we started taking turns getting together at each others houses for play dates!

Two arrival rituals have formed:

1. When Aly and Hailey arrive at our house, Hailey hides behind Aly and Aly pretends like Hailey didn't come. Then Hailey jumps out from behind Aly and Owen and I act shocked! Owen thinks this is hilarious!

2. When Owen and I arrive at their house, well let me back up a bit...

The Viducich family have a security door with a solid glass pane and they often leave their front door open when they're expecting visitors or want a little extra light or...

So like I was saying, when Owen and I arrive at their house, Owen jumps out of the car and goes running up to the security door. Without fail smacks right into it with a loud THUD announcing to everyone Owens here!!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Today we attended a fun Cinco de Mayo themed StrollerFit class and StrollerFriends play date. Once again Tammy made the whole thing super special with her clever and crafty activities. Unfortunately I completely forgot I had my camera so I didn't get any pics! A little later, while playing at the park, fellow mom Erin put her two cuties in the toddler swing together and the image of my camera sitting in the pocket of the stroller flooded my brain! I couldn't pass up this photo op!
Cinco de Mayo is a memorable occasion at our house. It is the anniversary of the first time Aaron ever came over for dinner way back when. I had invited a few of my girlfriends over for dinner and he showed up as the guest of a mutual friend. I figured since he was the only guy there he was either really smart or had been dragged kicking and screaming! Turns out he was really smart - he claims that his plan was for my friends to see how cute and nice he was and maybe I would think so too! Well it worked! This is our 8th Cinco de Mayo together!

Casino Royale

Happy Birthday Jimy! We had the pleasure of attending a "grown-up" birthday party at my sister's this weekend! The party was complete with a Casino Royale style poker tournament. We had a great time!
