Here is Maggie wearing one of the first little outfits I made for Lucy. I meant to share this sweet photo a month ago, but it seems like I never sat still long enough to do it.
Spring has always been a busy time at our house, but it seems like this year has been even busier than ever. As April has flown by, I have thought of many blog posts that I want to make. But by the time the evening's activities are done (dinners on the porch, planting flower, playing on the swing set, riding bikes) and we get everyone hosed down and tucked in bed, I'm finished. We've started sitting on the screened in porch after we put the kids to bed. We did this all the time at our old house, but haven't really taken advantage of it here. It's such a nice way to end the night. At the same time, the last thing I think about it updating my blog.
Here's a quick rundown of the month, and then I have lots of individual posts I want to make: I turned (gulp) 35 on April 4 and we enjoyed a fantastic dinner at La Relais. The food was amazing and I was reminded once again of the benefit of living so close to our free baby-sitters (a.k.a. my parents). Two days later, Henry turned (double gulp) seven on April 6. The next day we left with six adults and five kids (including three lap babies) for spring break in Cancun, Mexico. After a wonderful and relaxing week, we returned home. Since then I have thrown a family birthday dinner for the kids, and two friend parties for the kids. Lucy and I went with my grandmother to a dollie and me tea party and we attended opening night at Churchill Downs. Lucy's preschool class also visited a farm. Now, Derby season is in full swing here in Kentucky and we are getting ready to attend the Oaks.
