Hints of Spring

This afternoon we headed to the park... with this 70* weather you have to enjoy it.  Of course, everyone else had the same idea but the kids still had fun.  Camden finally got up the courage to go all the way to the top of the play set and go down the twisty slide all by himself.

Tiana loves hanging and swinging from the monkey bars.

This little monkey didn't want me to take his photo and so he spent most of the time avoiding me at all cost!

Caught him peeking at me!

Tiana LOVES the swings, she is almost too big for the baby swings but isn't quite old enough for the big swings... good thing she still likes being squeezed into the baby swings!

They had a great time giggling together!

And trying to touch hands!

Keaton can almost do the monkey bars all by himself!  He still thinks that he needs me to hold onto his legs.... even though I keep telling him that I am not really doing anything!

Watching a soccer game!

Running down the hill to tackle Mommy!

Taking one last "roll" down the hill!
 We then headed down the street to Sonic to get a half price slush before nap time!
Comparing tongue colors!

The kids just woke up so back outside we go!!  Hope you are all enjoying your day and that it has been as nice as ours!

Papa's Birthday!

Yesterday we headed over to help Papa celebrate his birthday!  We stopped by and saw Grandma Great on the way and got a little dress crocheted by Tiana's great-great-great Grandma!!!  Grandma Great has photos of herself in it when she was little and we can't wait to do Tiana's photos in it this spring.  It is BEAUTIFUL and looks so cute on her.  Now I just have to make a slip to go under it and find some crocheted lace for the trim.

Papa had lots of help blowing out candles!

They were very willing to take out all the candles for some strange reason!

When we were little Dad always used to give us towel rides where he would swing us back and forth and then flip us over!  From time to time he gives the kids rides.  This was Camden's first time and he thought it was fun the first swing then was yelling SCARY SCARY!  Tiana took one ride and was DONE... no more!

Keaton pretty much loved it!!

Daddy gave it a try!

Up and....

Around!!!  No Keaton didn't fall out but the photo makes it look pretty scary!!  Daddy got better at it after this!

Papa and his kids!

Happy Birthday, we love you!

I tell her to smile...

I tell her to smile and I get this:

This smile was only because she caught a glimpse of herself in the lens and cracked up causing her to lose her pose!

 And yes... we have a little drama queen!
Meanwhile, Camden watches it all taking it all in.... I am guessing he is taking notes!
