Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Can I just say this whole baby thing is the best?  We have hit a phase where we are going, doing, exploring.  Adelaide is old enough that we can do activities with her that we have been dreaming about since we began dreaming about adding children to our family.  

One of those moments was taking Adelaide to her first baseball game a few weeks ago.  There is a minor league baseball park in our town with an amazing lawn section.  We took our blankets, spread out and enjoyed the game and our little girl taking in the sights.  She mostly rolled around chatting, singing and playing while we watched the game and ate ballpark food.  Although she did decide to sneak one garlic fry.  Let's just say that baby is QUICK when she decides to eat something she shouldn't!  

The afternoon was overcast and actually a little cool for Texas in the spring. 

Of course we had our arsenal of baby-entertaining supplies and snacks.  

She had so much fun and so did we!  We are planning to go again really soon.

A Special Day

One of the items on my 12 in 12 list was for T and I take the little miss to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens.  Not only did we want to share the special place where we got engaged but we knew she would love being outdoors having a little adventure.  

Since we decided due to some other unavoidable commitments to throw her birthday party the weekend after her birthday, we decided to plan a special family day to the gardens to celebrate little miss's birthday and to celebrate the moment that brought us to her existence in the first place.  My sister joined us and we took some really great pictures while we were there.  

It was a little warm but we had a great time exploring and it was just the right little birthday outing for our day of celebration.

Happy Easter

We had a wonderful Easter--the bunny visited our house leaving the little bit with a fun basket.  We celebrated the holiday by going to church, followed by a big family brunch and then everyone took a gloriously long nap. Then we just loused around the house watching the Masters and eating leftovers. It was awesome.  

How was your holiday weekend?

Sorry we have been light on posts lately.  We are still sitting on blankets in the back yard reading books, listening to the Beach Boys, digging in the dirt, planting, and exploring.

And when we are not outdoors were are indoors making tissue paper poofs and stringing streamers everywhere for a special little party we are having this weekend.

Life is oh so very good!
