Learn: This is still very tricky to do. But I loaded up G and C's bag with dinner foods for them and Chris and I actually got a nice break. Both kids enjoyed looking around the restaurant and seeing all the festive mexican decorations.
Love: I always dread these sort of things, but then I end up enjoying it immensely. It should become a monthly ritual!
Learn: I have a friend who did this for a playdate back when Chelsea was almost one. She loved it! I need to revisit those activites that made her squeal because I'm sure they would delight Gavin as well.
Love: Most of the toys in are yard are for both kids, but Gavin doesn't get the full enjoyment. This special activity was really tailored for him! (But as you can see his sister liked it too)
Learn: Equipment is key. I have kid sized shovel and watering can which thrilled my little girl. I ended up getting a lot done.
Love: I love watching Chelsea play and mimic the things I'm doing. She was a good little garden helper! But there is still a lot left to do.
Look: It's Mother's Day! I can't think of any better way to celebrate than walking through the city to raise money for Breast Cancer. Cancer has truly affected my family in so many ways, so this walk was great. We brought Grandma along for the 5k walk. There was beautiful weather and we all had fun. C and G were very good sitting in their stroller for the entire thing! At the end we sat and had a mini picnic in front of the art museum.
Learn: I need to do more things downtown with the kids. I used to be such a city gal until I moved to the burbs. The thought of going into Philly had made me nervous, but this race renewed my desire to get out and see all the city has to offer.
Love: I loved walking the race with my family.
Learn: As you can see C really thinks she is a big girl. She wants to walk everywhere these days. Getting her back in the stroller is the tough part. G is getting quite big too now, he wants to try the stuff he sees his sister doing. Kids really do grow right in front of your eyes!
Love: I love that spring is here!
Learn: Running this race was very confidence boosting. I set a goal and reached it!
Love: The best part of the race was seeing my family near the finish line!
