a beautiful day....

Yesterday was the most beautiful spring day we have had (there haven't been many!). Blake and I spent most of the day outside. We went on a walk, went to the park, and played in the backyard where Blake likes to play in the rocks.

It's raining today... so it's most likely a day stuck inside- but at least we had yesterday to enjoy.

I wish I would have taken my camera outside with us, but at least I thought to snap a couple on our goldfish snack break!

Blake is learning more and more everyday! His vocabulary has expanded to ball, uh-oh, momma, dada, nana (banana), baba (bottle), did it (i did it). He is really starting to love books which has been so fun for me. I ask him questions about things that are on the page and most of the time he can point to what I am asking about. He's getting so big!!!

snow in april....

Yes, that's right! It's been a long, long winter stuck inside... and last Saturday was no different as it snowed lightly all day long. Isn't April supposed to bring flowers and sunshine? Luckily the forecast is looking better- upper 60's this coming weekend and no more being stuck indoors for this family!!

Nolan thought that building a tent would help to pass the time while being inside. Both he and Blake had fun- although Blake wasn't quite sure how to walk through the tent without falling down... you'll see why in the video.
