Spring is definitely here and we are loving it! Here are some highlights from our week:
|Great-grandparents took the kids out for frozen yogurt for their birthdays. The kids loved it (as you can see) and everyone had a good time.|
|Chicken-noodle-soup-with-wheat-thins is not your typical picnic food (or even a typical meal combination) but it was yum and the weather was nice so they went for it! (Greg was late at work as he has been all week)|
|Abby had her 8-year-old-checkup. She confirmed her heart is working.|
|Greg and Abby went to her school's Engineering Night. They built a catapult and guided a little robot through some obstacles. (Would have been even more fun if those activities were combined!)|
One afternoon the neighbors had their sprinklers on. Abby and Alex of course thought it would be a great idea to turn ours on and run around... even though it was only in the mid-60s. They had fun for 10 minutes or so until Alex all-of-a-sudden realized he was cold. Surprise! He was rockin pretty sweet snow boots though.
Greg had a lot of late nights at work which has been tough but we had a really sweet night on Saturday thanks to work (well, specifically Greg's boss). We got invited to go to a private VIP showing of Beauty and the Beast. The theater was just friends/family of Greg's boss and was all luxury seats, plus whatever we wanted from concessions plus, Debbie's favorite, blankets as well. Greg's sister went with us and we all had a great time. It was the first time we had all gone to a movie as a family (and Alex's first movie theater period) and although we probably won't go again too soon (2+ hours is a long time for Alex to sit through) we all had a lot of fun and it was quite a treat.
|Ended the week with a park trip... not too many days pass without us getting out!|
