(As usual I posted these pictures from my phone and so they are cut off. Please just click on the pictures to see the whole shot. Poor kids keep getting cut off.)
We have had such a nice spring so far. It has been warmer than usual, seems to be a common story for the west coast. Any how, we've been able to take advantage of the weekends and holiday. Mike is usually busy with church stuff most weekends so it was nice having a couple that we could spend with him. We went on a nature walk through the wild flowers at the wind wolves nature preserve. We've been camping here a couple times and it is beautiful in the spring (when we've had rain ) otherwise it's a barren wasteland. Luckily we've been blessed with rain. ( I swear this post was not meant to be a bakersfield weather report. ;)
We had a nice valentine's day spent all together with yummy fondu!
On presidents day we went to the beach with our good friend Irene. She brought her great niece and nephew along and we had a good time checking out the elephant seals, finding shells and sand dollars, and eating icecream. It was nice to get away and do something new. Vivian is sure enjoying preschool. She has a new best friend, Mason. Everything is about "mason" right now. :) I forgot to document a few funny things my girls have said and done. Emma was the star student at school one day and her dad came to read the class a story. She introduced him as Bishop Sharp. (LOL) Mike told her she could just call him Dad.
I was getting out of the car one day to run and grab something. When I came back Vivian said , "you were quick mom" I responded by saying, "yes I am speedy" in which she replied, "you are a genius". :)
Gordon had officially begun to crawl and had 2 new shiny teeth poking through. He sure has been a grump lately so hopefully I can figure out a way to make him more comfortable.
We are gearing up for Emma's 6th birthday party. It is going to be a friend party and quite the event. I am insane! It's so hard because you can't invite one person and then not another. It will be over spring break so we'll either have a huge turn out or maybe some people will be gone on vacation. I'll keep you posted on that event. (Carnival theme )
