We've been busy this Spring. Weekends full of family activities, friend visits, sport events and cousin time. Our family is big into outdoor activities so some highlights we've done the past few months now that it's warming up include: park and zoo visits, hiking at the ranch, boating at the lake and teaching/learning new activities for the little man using STEAM program tactics.
We had an amazing Easter hunting eggs in our front yard with Cullen's cousins, consuming a full-on Easter ham, scalloped potatoes and roasted carrots the Easter bunny left behind. Afterwards, we played outside with bikes, sidewalk chalk and water table fun. It was one of the best days we had. Just enjoying the moments and sharing our love and joy. We were able to continue that the following weekend going to Jason's in law's Ranch where we hiked, played outside and saw Yaya and Papa. Cullen learned about cows, turkeys, birds and otters.
This past weekend, Emily hosted her best friend's baby shower for little Lottie Fran - the second girl to join the gang. Her mom, Jackie, was showered with loads of pink, bows and frills. Her auntie em mighta coulda spoiled her a lot.... We told Cullen he's got a new cousin coming and explained to him about babies and how he's going to be a big brother just like his cousin Conner. He knows what a baby is and has now been going around the house saying "baee baee" "baee baee, mine." like he's already owned the role of a big bro.
This next weekend we are off to the lake again with Mimi and Grandpa. Grandpa bought a new boat and we've got to go take it for a test drive, of course. We will be fishing, grilling and enjoying the sun. Cullen's never had marshmallows before... he's going to get his first s'more. More news to come, but for now, we've got to go wrangler a toddler.
