Spring Break Part 1
So the only reason I have a part one is because in part two I am going to tell about the amazing week of food. It was wonderful having Paul around more during his Spring Break, he is such an amazing dad (I love watching him) and both our girls love him so much and loved having him around. I am so thankful for the help and his creative ideas this past week. He still studied most of the week, but took off a couple hours here and there to hang out with us.

Tuesday we went to the Dallas Arboretum with some friends from our playgroup. We had a picnic near these deer statues and Elyse was pretty much obsessed with them and played on them the whole time. Then right before we left we went and ran around these castles they had built. It is so beautiful at the Arboretum and we had a great time!

Wednesday, we stole Paul away from studying and went to this place called Bounce U, Elyse loves it! We got a great deal on groupon and have been going once a week for the past month. It is a warehouse full of blow-up bouncey things.

Thursday and Friday consisted of some time at the park, I went to a speaker at church, and some other things I can't remember. Saturday, we went to the Heard Museum in Mckinney. It has a bug/dinasour/other random stuff exhibit and a bunch of hiking trails outside. It was so much fun. I got a season pass on groupon so we can go a lot more. Elyse did a ton of walking/hiking, she loved running around and June loved being outside and looking around at everything. We got a family pic (which we don't have very many of those in the past couple months), but my eyes are closed, bummer!

we also got a little work done, washing the cars, Elyse helping out!

Yay for Spring Breaks, I didn't think I was going to get those again after graduating. Thanks Paul for the fun memories!

My favorite peeps..

So I realize all I do is post pictures of my family and talk about what they are doing and how fun they are. Now that I stay at home full time (which I LOVE and so glad that I get to) that is my life. I would love to get into something for me, that I enjoy on my down time, but I am trying to figure out what that is. I started reading again and I am reading The girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Paul and I planned some fun new meals this week, so if they turn out good, I will post those recipes. I am realizing I am also excited about a house because I will have something to do that I love, organize! I like decorating too(not like I am really good, but it is fun for me) and just having a place to call home and take care of. I still feel in transition since I know us living with the Mason's is not permanent, but we are so thankful and glad to be living with them during this time since it has eliminated alot of responsibility that a home would bring. But I feel ready for that again. I am also starting to run/workout more frequently which feels really good! And I have two projects that I am working on; organize all our recipes into one box (they are all over the place) and print pictures for baby book and photo album that Paul got me for Christmas. I am excited about more to look forward to for myself, I feel I have been so lazy the past few months. Paul has spring break this week (whoooh) but not really since he will still be studying, but he will definitely be around more. I hope to do a couple fun things with the family this week, so we will see how much we can steal him away during the day. I hope everyone (like the two people that read this blog) has a great week and hopefully, we will be posting more often:)

Elyse is hosting a Tea party for us and her friends

Last week, I feed some rice cereal to June for the first time (4 1/2 months old, crazy to me b/c I waited until Elyse was 6 months, but she really liked it. I haven't given her any since, but it was fun. My doc said I could, so I thought why not try a little)
