Spring - Lots of Firsts!

Yikes!! Spring sure is flying by. A lot has been going on here - let's see if I can remember it all:

This is our kids at the local Easter Egg Hunt with the bunny. Gray didn't participate in the hunt of course, but Nora had a good time. The poor girl always hunts eggs and ends up with almost nothing but chocolate (which she doesn't like). But she still had a ton of fun and ate all the Tootsie Rolls in her eggs. ;)

Nora and I took Gray swimming for the first time a few weeks ago. This rec center that we were at is great for first timers: it has a zero-entry pool that is a good temperature. We took Gray on his fifth-month "birthday". Nora hated baths, and the first time I took her to this pool she cried and cried. Grayson loves his baths, and the first time he went to the pool he had a GREAT time. I thought he was going to cry at first, but he ended up liking it. Yay!!

Nora had some weird sickness last week that left her with a low-grade fever and a nauseated belly. This is her "feeling better" face. ;)

Even though she didn't feel one-hundred-percent just yet, she still wanted to go to her first soccer game. The above photo is her pre-tears. :) She ended up crying about "not getting a turn to kick the ball" but after one of the coaches set her up to score a goal, and she got her after-game popsicle, all was well. ;) The poor kid - we tell her to share all the time, so she doesn't really get that in soccer you can go take the ball away from other kids!

The weather around here has been great for the past few days, so we have been spending a lot of time outside. Grayson loves to be outside and put his feet in the grass. Nora has been playing with new spring toys - the above photo is of her doing her ring toss. ;) We also took our first family bike ride yesterday - a super short one, just to try it out and see how everyone would do. It has been gorgeous lately!!

And then of course today is opening day! We all have our Cardinals gear on. Nora gets to go to a game this weekend, so that will be fun for her. It's only her second game ever!

So that's what we have been up to lately. Until next time . . .
