Spring, is that you?

Signs of spring are everywhere.

Our weekend weather was perfect and we spent most of our days outside.

Mike and Will went for a hike on the trail behind our house yesterday.  Mike always brings his backpack on these outings for snacks and drinks.  Will insisted on bring his bag, too.  When I asked him what was in it, he was hesitant to show me at first, telling me "I'll show you later."  After some prodding, he finally showed me the Lightening McQueen pillow he had stuffed in there.

Also on our to-do list: a bike ride to the park.  He loves to ride his bike.

Baby loves to swing.  And eat mulch.

On the way home from the park we saw some people in the cul-de-sac.  We decided to go stalk them a bit since I'm in desperate need of some friends and socialization in this new 'hood of ours.  Once there, it became obvious we were walking in on a party - an impromptu block party. Kids everywhere, music, food, bbq grills. Apparently a regular occurrence when the weather is nice.  I love that we live here.

We were welcomed and initiated with a game of kick ball for Will and Mike.

Eight years ago today, Mike and I went on our first date.  It's something we celebrate every year by returning to PF Chang's and, yesterday, we went with our two little ones. We've learned so much over the years.  Mostly that eating out with kids really sucks.

I love Amelia's pink "kicks"! Looking forward to seeing your 'hood. I'll be pricing tix on Thursday.
