Lately . . .

Oh my poor blog! It's harder and harder to keep up with this but I do want a record of my life with two young kiddos.

We have been busy the past few weeks! Lots of outdoor playtime, birthday parties galore and we even had a Master's party last night. Evie and Henry were so excited to have a party since we never host more than one family at a time. It was for our church small-group and it was really fun! 

Evie had a birthday party this afternoon and the moms came up with a wonderful idea. We split into shifts. Taylor's mom picked up Evie and Sloan and then Sloan's mom took the middle shift and I had the last shift - with ice-cream and cake. I dropped off the girls on the way home. Birthday parties are getting longer and longer these days so it is so nice to share the load with other moms. Evie was beyond thrilled to ride in the car with her friends.

Evie started back with swim lessons a few weeks ago and is loving them! I love that she only goes twice a week and am hoping to her ready to pass the YMCA swim test this summer. Evie jumped right in on the first day and loves that her sweet friend, Molly, is in her class. 

Easter egg hunting is another favorite right now. We have been to one hunt already and have a few more in the works. Henry hunts for blue eggs and opens it immediately eating the candy. Evie rapidly collects the eggs and then finds a safe spot to devour her loot.  It's so fun to see how different Henry and Evie are from each other. 


  1. i'm sure i've said this before, but they remind me so much of my little brother and me. so sweet. i hope you guys have a nice easter!

  2. Such cuties! I don't look forward to tons of bday parties in our future...I guess it's just a part of having small kids. My brother says they have at least three birthday parties a weekend! Ahhhhh!!!

  3. Nice to read an update of your family! Hope you have a lovely Easter celebration!

  4. You are on my list to message this week to check on work news and share work news. I am right there with you on the blog. I am so behind consistently, and I want to blog about our trip before catching up. Sharing times at birthday parties would be great since there are more and more of them to attend. I doubt Avery would approve though.
