Liam got an Easter egg hunt sampling this morning at an egg hunt hosted by our play group. It was great to see all the kids and to have an opportunity for the Dads to take part. Liam was somewhat into the idea of gathering eggs but he wasn't really into the idea of letting them go into his basket. He just wanted to hold them. Or treat them like a ball to throw (as he often does for Abbey). Needless to say we didn't walk away with a huge "loot" but it was cute to see him in action and he definitely enjoyed the morning with his little buddies! Beside it was a good practice run for Easter Sunday!! Have a great weekend ~

Thank you everyone for all the well wishes and love as we get ready for Street Baby numero dos!
There's plenty more going on in our lives that's kept us preoccupied and busy and yes even a little stressed now and again but we're truly excited and looking forward to the months ahead. Lots to do! Backyard projects, lots of time with family, more plane rides for Liam and a whole lot of summer water fun. Good times!

That's our man, hanging out little monkey style. ;) We've stayed busy this past week with play groups, field trips, gardening and lots o' backyard time in this lovely spring weather we're having. Tomorrow, here's hoping we get out to capture some photos of these lovely Texas bluebonnets before they're all gone for the season!
Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far and here's to a great Sunday!

On Sunday we got together with my family and took part in our annual Family 5K Day! It's an event we started up last year and will continue to do every year as a memorial run in tribute of the many members of our family that have passed. It's been so exciting these past 2 years to see everyone get involved and I know it's because we've all got people we hold in our hearts and miss deeply. Plus we all care about each other and want to live many more healthy years together. ;)
People came together from Texas to Ohio to Florida to even Colorado this year and while the weather wasn't ideal in Austin on Sunday (it was rainy and kind of chilly and you know that can be miserable), we still got out and did it! I kept telling my Mom, "We're hardcore!" ;-P
Anyway....couple of pictures below! Happy Monday!

April might be the best month, I've decided. We're pretty much through any more cold fronts that would require a wardrobe overhaul but nothing has turned so hot yet that it's unbearable to be outside. Things are starting to bloom all around. Many days are overcast in such a way that you think it could rain at any minute but it rarely does. It's just breezy and cool and green eveywhere.
So yeah, best month. And it's fun being on the go with Liam -- I periodically watch him now and then and just ponder how big he's gotten. How much the baby is gone and this little boy is what now exists. I suppose that could make a person sad and melancholy but I don't feel that way about it. I'm just really happy to see him growing so much into this little person that he is. Very eager to engage with the world and so happy to be able to finally start doing so. ;)

Good to be back!
It's nice to see Spring finally settling in here in Austin ~~ the weather has been sunny, warm, but breezy and things are blooming. ;)
Sadly our Galveston trip didn't yield too many pictures because it was mostly just overcast, foggy and cool that weekend but Liam did enjoy looking out over the great big water and we of course enjoyed sampling the seafood of the Coast!
Looking forward to the start of some much warmer days and the return of Summer splash pad trips!! Have a great week everyone~~

Another Friday, woohoo!! Guess where we're going this weekend?? NOWHERE! It's going to be A-mazing. ;)
We've been go-go-go for weeks now and there's nothing more that we want to do than just enjoy a peaceful Saturday morning...get in the yard and clean things up for Spring and then maybe enjoy the sights in our slice of Austin. Talk about heaven.
Next week we'll be back on the ol' blog here at a more regular pace so we look forward to visiting with you again soon!! Until then, have a great weekend!
(Liam here...reading to Abbey) ;)

We disappeared here again although this time, unintentionally. You see, there was a bout of "blech sick" last week along with an impromptu trip to Colorado and then we returned on Sunday and blinked and now it's Thursday. See how crazy that gets? ;-P
Well anyway.....we're stopping in to dust the cobwebs off here before heading back out again. Galveston, TX bound this week and we're so excited because Liam will make his first pilgrimmage to a beach!! Great pictures to come hopefully ~~ Have a lovely weekend!
