Spring wrap up!

Wow- that happened quickly!  February and March have really rushed by us.  For some reason, I haven't been feeling like blogging, but figured I should do a little catch up before it all gets away from me.

We took a trip to LA in February for my step brother's wedding.  Congrats, Mike and Janet! Luckily enough while we were down there, we were able to visit Disneyland again with Kim, and the boys and Sarah and Drew and their girls. (Thanks again Uncle Bob!!)  We all had a blast!

Maisy got to meet Snow White.  I saw her walking alone near the castle and I grabbed Maisy and we jogged very quickly to meet up with her.   We were only the second folks in line to see her. Todd and I were both thrilled since we were going to take her to stand in the crazy long line to meet the princesses, but this crossed that right off our list!  Oh, and Maisy was a bit star struck too.

From LA, we were home for a day and then headed up to Tahoe to meet up with Mimi, Papa J and Uncle Steven for some skiing.  It felt great to get out and ski again!  I hadn't skied since before I got pregnant with Maisy.  Unfortunately coming off of a week in LA, the girls' schedule was so messed up and they were so over tired and cranky almost the entire time.  Maisy refused to go and play in the snow.  We have a brand new sled that has never been used.  Hopefully next time she'll feel more adventurous and want to get out.  Maren was a happy little snow girl at least! I think we were all a bit exhausted, because we didn't take any pictures with our good camera- only tiny little shots with our phones....  next time we'll be more with it!  We are still so glad we went and look forward to the next adventure!

Kim came up for a special sisters' weekend.  It was great.  I can't believe we've never thought to do this before!  Pedis, a movie, a couple of drinks all with no kids!  Thanks to Rigo and Todd for being the main care takers that weekend.

Lunch on St. Patrick's Day.

We've been keeping busy, doing a few activities with the girls.  I saw on Pinterest you can make sidewalk paint using equal parts cornstarch to water with a few drops of food coloring.

Maren had her well baby visit last week and had her last shot before kindergarten!  She weighs 22 lbs 8 oz and is 2 feet 8.5 inches tall.  She is talking up a storm and is very determined.  She does not like being strapped in or held.  She wants to experience it all first hand!  She and Maisy are getting along very well and are becomming great friends.  Maren loves dancing and being outside. She is not a fan of being left at the YMCA daycare, though.  We need to work on that just a bit.

We celebrated Uncle Steven's birthday last week as well at a great little restaurant in SOMA called Tropisueno.  Happy Birthday, Steven!!

Other than that, we've been busy at home crossing things off our to-do list and planting our vegetables in the garden.  We are excited to see what we can get to grow!

Hope your spring is off to a good start.  With all this rain we've had lately, I'm ready for SUMMER! Coming up next is our Coachella trip!  Can't wait!!!
