Tired of cold weather!

Don't forget to sign up for my GIVEAWAY! CLICK HERE TO ENTER!


Is it just me, or is anyone else getting tired of the cold weather?
I am tired of waking up depressed not being able to go anywhere because the roads are too icy and I am just not willing to take that chance with a few certain precious cargos in the back of my van and one within my womb still.

Luckily we had a couple days of nice weather. The first day was Friday, unfortunately we spent the days indoor cleaning for Jonathan's birthday party (bleh, such a waste of a nice day). Then on Saturday my sister and I decided we would take advantage of the semi-nice weather and take our little ones to the park. I was good except when the wind blew it got chilly!

I took them all to a new park they had never been to and they loved it. It was so nice to get the kids out and to let them run off some of the energy they had stored up from prety much the entire winter! I swear they were running non-stop for the entire time we were there, and being typical kids didn't want to leave when it was time!

The park we went to is nice with a rock climbing wall! It's short obviously but the kids always love it.

The only down part of the park what that there was dog poop EVERYWHERE! I was so disgusted. There is a LAW that people are supposed to pick that up because it can spread diseases. Why don't people take responsibility and pick it up. It would take a whole 2 minutes to pick it up and throw it in the trash.

Other than that it was great. It was a decent day for a photo opportunity!

He makes me nervous when he slides down the pole! I just have to remind myself he's not a baby anymore and will be 5 before I know it!

Is this not the most handsome boy you have ever seen?? I may be a bit biased but I sure think he is!

Zonk a girl.

Hubby does the cooking. Why you ask? Because every time I do he has to critique it lol. So I cook maybe once a year (for the entire family) I always make the kids lunches!

Day 30
I love that they love each other!

Car washes are very interesting!

126
Or slightly scary depending on which child you ask.

Side note: I am claustrophobic and when we would go through these as a kid, I would be scared that the doors wouldn't open and it would keep us locked in forever!

Sweet baby hand!

Day 32

Also can I just say I am so proud of my sister!
With her first baby (Becca) she didn't have a whole lot of experience or help with breastfeeding and only made it to 3 months before her milk dried up.
This time around she had a VERY hard time after having Addie.
The doc but the epidural in wrong and she had to get 2 or 3 blood patches and had the worst headache for a week.
I am proud she pushed through the pain and is now still nursing and pumping breast milk for Addie! Addie is 8 months old now! :)
