Ha! I’m gonna get a life lately post in just in the nick of time to call it April. Since I haven’t done a random pic post of what we’ve been up to in a couple months, some of these are several weeks old.
So here’s what’s keeping us busy lately…
Family Nights… We made a ton of Greek food and watched the first Big Fat Greek Wedding as a family movie night recently…*****
Having a family FitBit Challenge for Lent to encourage each of us to be active… This is Gage being our official score keeper. He won the competition ($80! – we each put in $20), but wow, we all got in some serious steps during Lent! Around 500K steps each!
Speaking of Gage, he and Alyssa got engaged! We are thrilled! Wedding is planned for next summer. I just love these two young people so much. We are blessed for sure.
I met up with a couple of girlfriends from high school that I RARELY get to see. I love them so much and we laughed and gabbed until I nearly lost my voice! We are planning a girls weekend for this July and I’m WAY excited. There is something special about being with those friends that have known you since you were a kid. Lucky me to know these beautiful girls. Pic on top was from when we were in college (around 1996)- bottom is from a few weeks ago.
And of course we have been enjoying ALL THE SPRING THINGS… Like…
Kite Flying. April is so windy where we live that it definitely calls for kite flying on sunny afternoons.
And speaking of sunny afternoons. Milo and I spend a lot of time in the backyard… playing with waterguns…dipping our feet in his baby pool…planting and watering our flowers. We are soaking this mild weather up because soon it will be Texas Summer and we’ll die outside in the afternoons.
And it wouldn’t be springtime without patio drinks and picnics.And bike rides! Gage and I did our first race (they are actually called rallies because let’s face it… I’m doing well if I complete – I’m not winning any medals) of the year last weekend! Hopefully we’ll get several more in over the next few months.
And what is April without Wildflowers?!
And Matt’s favorite time in April is DIFF (Dallas International Film Festival)… He saw lots of movies and did several interviews – Cady helped!I love this time of year because there is so much fun outdoor stuff going on. Whether it’s just a walk around the neighborhood or grilling in your backyard…a sanctioned race or the local farmer’s market – there is always a good reason to get out and enjoy a beautiful day!
The next month or so is packed for us. It all starts with Mother’s Day, then ALL THREE KIDS birthdays, then ends with Father’s Day. I love it! So many reasons to celebrate each other. We’re winding down the school year (thank goodness!) and prepping for summer laziness. Until next time…
