What We've Been Up Too...

Saturday morning, we made our annual trek to Wye Mountain to enjoy the beautiful daffodils {and of course, take some pictures!}. Unfortunately, because of the warm weather we've had this year, the flowers bloomed early and didn't stay long so there was only a very, very small fraction of the normal bounty. But, given the choice between warm weather and daffodils, I would pick warm weather everytime!

My sweet babies!

If I could freeze them all at this age, I would in a heartbeat.

This one, in particular...
...is growing up WAY too fast!

Since, it was St. Patrick's Day, we came home and made a yummy rainbow snack...
YUMMY fruit, marshmallows, chocolate candies and yogurt dip!

We also made our traditional rainbow cupcakes...
Well, with all of the extra help this year, they turned out a bit more like tye-dye cupcakes, but noone complained :o)

After Daddy got off work, we headed to Home Depot...always an exciting trip for the little ones :o)
We loaded up on lots (and LOTS) of mulch!
The kids had a "ball" playing outside while we put the mulch in the flowerbeds :o)

Yesterday, our first day of Spring Break, we played outside all morning...never gets old! The girls made shadow people out of chalk and made a fancy dance floor with the chalk. They danced the morning away...pure bliss!
After lunch, we set out for what we thought would be a quick trip to get a new belt for Daddy's mower. After about two and a half hours, we finally secured the new belt.
Little Pumpkin said, "Why did Daddy break his old belt? He better be careful with this one, it took too long to get it." Haha! I agree!

This morning, Sunshine decided to do a little sewing...
Daddy was the lucky recipient of a new pillow case when he got home from work :o)

The forecast showed rain for this afternoon and for the next couple days so we decided to head to the zoo for a few hours while it was still sunny. The kids LOVE the penguins!
Since the zoo is only 10 minutes from Daddy's office, he met us for lunch at the zoo! Yay!
Check out my sweet baby's smile...awwwww...can't get enough of that sweet baby!
We all love the beautiful birds!

It was a super fun afternoon....followed by a long afternoon/evening of switching the girls' closets over from winter to spring/summer...my least favorite chore!

This spring break sure has me excited about summer break!!
