Catching up…

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

I debated posting old stuff that never made it to the blog, although blog worthy, and have decided that it will at least give you all something to look at.  That, and help you appreciate how nice our winter was now that it’s turning scalding hot warm.

These are photos from a play date with Ayla at the park on a gorgeous February morning. 

This was Kate’s very first set of pigtails; she looked just like Boo from Monsters Inc!

How can this welcome not bring a smile to your face?  Ayla was running in from the parking lot, they were both so excited!

Can I ride?!?!

Noah loves a good swing!  I love this series of photos!  I couldn’t decide which ones to post, so you get three.


Ok, four.  I can’t help myself.  This is Noah in the same swing at 9 months.  What a difference 3 years makes!!  It doesn’t even look like the same kid!

Every holiday or occasion in my family growing up was marked by a pool party.  Not much has changed since then with Grammy and Papa down the street and family nearby!  We’re very lucky to have our family close and hopefully this time next year even more will have moved south!

On Easter Sunday we went to church (our biannual visit) for the service and Easter egg hunt.  The kids had a blast!

And Walter got to spend more time than usual in front of the camera!



Our church also has a butterfly release after service each year and both kids were finally able to enjoy it!


Kate was so curious!


Noah’s butterfly didn’t want to go very far!

And we thought the gathering was a perfect excuse for some impromptu family photos!

After church we went to my parents’ and swam and ate like kings.  Unfortunately we have no photos of that because Walter got sick on the way over.  It’s very unlike him to sit out so I knew it was best to give him a break.  You’ll have to see our new tans in the next post!
