The Beach Patrol!

Before Ben was born, Daddy found us all cool matching sweatshirts that say “Beach Patrol” on them, and we ALL fit in them right now! Mommy knew that wasn’t going to last long, so she wanted to get us out to try and get a picture of us in them, so we bundled up this morning and headed out to the lake by our house! There was a bit of whining since it was cold, the ground was wet, the sun was too bright, all of us have colds, and we just LIKE to whine these days, but mommy INSISTED that we try! We actually ended up have a GREAT morning of playing with mommy! Thanks for the fun outing!

Emily LOVED throwing rocks, sticks & sand into the lake, and unfortunately for mommy, she liked WALKING in it too…

Mommy was VERY impressed with my rock climbing skills! I am SO ready for some good hiking with daddy this spring!

We packed a basket of snacks so we could have a little picnic at the park too!

What could be better than a picnic of fruit snacks on the grass?!?!?!?

After our picnic, we headed over to the park to play on the jungle gym! Ben had a BLAST on the swings, and we LOVED playing together!

Mommy’s whole goal in our outing today was to get ONE good picture of all of us in our “Beach Patrol” sweatshirts, and she’ll just have to be happy with what she got! Before we left the park, Emily fell, busted her top lip, and bled ALL OVER her sweatshirt! Oh well! She was just as happy to have a Cinderella ice pack and some cuddle time with mommy! It was STILL a great day!

Puffs!

A WHOLE new world has been opened up to me tonight when mommy finally gave me PUFFS!!!! I had NO idea what this thing was, but since I try to put everything in my mouth these days, mommy figured it would go over pretty well! These little suckers are hard to pick up, but with a little bit of help, I LOVED them! I’ll be feeding myself in no time!

Spring Party at Preschool!

Today was an AWESOME day at preschool! Grandma Worthing had a very special spring party for us! When we got there, we got to dye Easter eggs, and decorate them with GLITTER! They were the most beautiful eggs mommy said she’s ever seen!

It was sunny and almost 80 degrees outside, so we read our stories out by the fish pond to enjoy the fresh air!

After our snack, we got to go on a cool “photo puzzle” treasure hunt that mommy made up for me and my friends. We each got to put together puzzles that were pictures of where our next clue was hidden. Julie’s mommy even bought us cool treasures to pick up along the way! We did a great job at helping each other to figure out each hiding spot!
