We enjoyed the nice weather and took the kids on many walks...
This is how Jake sleeps in the car - I LOVE how he crosses his legs :)
We got Claire a bike for her birthday and she does really well with it! She is still learning how to do the breaks, but she is getting there!
We took on the big project of staining our fence. As you can see, it needed some TLC. We were doing it by hand at first but that was taking FOREVER. So we went and bought a sprayer and it was well worth the money!
We even got the little pool out for a couple of days
On Claire's birthday we went to the mall (She loves the mall!). Grammy, Aunt Sarah and Bently met us there and we had a great time!
Thankfully she wasn't doing this to real people...
At the beginning of March, we took the kids swimming on a Friday night. Our kids love to swim and we all had a great time!
On Claire's actual birthday, Pete took her to the store to pick something out and she picked roller skates. Claire is clumsy without skates so it is pretty disastrous on skates - but we admire her courage! (It's a good thing we didn't name HER Grace :)
For Claire's birthday party this year, we went a little crazy! We rented a pony to come to our backyard and give all of the kids pony rides. It was a blast and well worth it! The party was great and we simply loved being surrounded my so many family and friends. We were touched at all of the people that drove into town to celebrate - Great Grandma and Great Grandpa K, Aunt Kathy and Uncle Kwabena, Aunt Beth and Uncle Matt (soon enough, right?), Grandma, and The Getty Family with Claire's best bud, Jude!
