Whale Done!

As you know, we've been struggling with getting Harper to go to bed on time and without fighting.  The other night it was getting really late, Shyla was fast asleep in dreamland, and Harper was still up.  Of course.  Eventually, even later, it was finally quiet upstairs so I went up to check on the girls, whom I thought were sleeping.  
However, I was shocked when I came across Harper, wide awake, sitting in my bed, reading a book my principal gave me titled, "Whale Done!" about how the right type of encouragement can help others bring out their bests.  Here's hoping the book had an affect on her life….

It's Tough Being the Little One...

I snapped this picture and was immediately reminded of my days being the smallest of the cousins.  This picture depicts Grandpa driving Lilly, Zac, and Shyla home from the playground in Nelly-Bell, with Harper chasing after.

Coronado Vacation!

The girls and I were blessed to spend about a week of my Spring Break on Coronado Island with my parents and Zac and Lilly.  We had a blast and got a lot of quality time together.  We played at Star Park & Orange Sparkles, spent an afternoon at Inflatable World, got to spend time with Uncle Dan and Auntie Erin, took a quick trip to the ER, just the normal!
These are the memories that I know the kids, and I, will treasure forever!

Lilly's Birthday Date

Continuing with tradition we took Lilly on a date instead of getting her a birthday present.  This year we took her to The Melting Pot and it was a delicious outing!  She did great and we had a blast!  We are SO VERY late in scheduling Zac's birthday date…..
