It's been beautiful weather this week and we have been enjoying it! Every evening our cul-de-sac is packed with kids having a blast. Connor, Kaitlynn, and I have been taking regular walks to our neighborhood park. Connor has become quite the bicyclist these days and really loves it.
Kaitlynn's favorite outdoor activity is, what else, playing with the neighbor's dogs. It cracks me up that we are the family who swore we would NEVER have a dog, and then we have a daughter who is truly, madly, and deeply obsessed with them. She finally calls them "puppies" instead of "puppas" and all of our neighbors marvel at how she'll take a good lickin' from the dogs and just squeal with delight.
We are loving this spring weather in February!
I took the following pics of Kaitlynn yesterday. She has a recent obsession with the utensil drawer. She goes there frequently throughout the day and digs around until she finds the kids spoons to play with. I removed them from that drawer, and then she decided to start playing with the adult utensils. This girl doesn't take No for an answer. After seeing these pictures, I noticed how much she is really slimming down. She has been wearing the same size for about a year now.
My last random topic: I have found a new favorite grocery store. HEB. I first started going there because they carry things that I just can't find at my Kroger stores (which are WAY more convenient for me). Then I noticed that the produce section at HEB is incredible with tons of different items and everything always seems much fresher. So now I usually go out of my way to drive to HEB at least once a week. At the checkout counter, the attendants will give Connor and Kaitlynn "Buddy Bucks". These are little papers that look like money that you can take to the HEB Buddy machine in exchange for points and prizes. This is the kids' favorite part of our grocery trip now. Even Kaitlynn figured it out after the first try and does it all by herself now. Anything to keep the kids happy!
