Spring has sprung!

For those of you who weren't aware, spring is here! Yesterday was the first day of spring and for once Mother Nature seems to be obiding by the calendar. This week was so beautiful out I wanted to cry every time I had to go into my office (which doesn't have one window by the way). I tried to keep leaving work early so that I could enjoy the beautiful sunshine out. Luckily with the time change I get to enjoy it even when I can't sneak out early. The kids are so happy that the weather is nice as well. Alex is finally tall enough to reach the peddles on his Big Wheels and has been going all over the neighborhood in it! He is such a big boy!

Amelia wants to get down and explore. She can crawl really fast now and is very intrigued by everything she can find on the ground outside. Rocks, grass, pieces of dirt all are closely inspected and try to go into her mouth....we have entered into the 'I need to taste everything' stage.

Alex also started new gymnastics class, now on Thursday evenings. This class is extra special because his BFF Bridget is in it. They had a blast Thursday evening and wore themselves out running around during class.

Other big news....our kitchen is done!!! Yeah!!!! It actually went really fast and only took a little over a month, but it feels like forever that I've had a fully functioning kitchen. Jayson, our tile guy, finished up around 7:30 last night and we just couldn't be happier with the final results. I just stood in our kitchen last night in total amazement at how it turned out. I am really, really, really, REALLY happy with it! Check it out:

In case you forgot how drastic of a change this really is for us here is a before and after shot:



I encourage all of you to get outside this weekend and enjoy the sunshine! Have a happy and safe weekend!!!

Yay for the kitchen being complete! I think we have the same color of granite.
