Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Magnolia had a fantastic Easter weekend. On Saturday she had a couple egg hunts that she loved. Yesterday the Easter bunny brought Magnolia a very special Easter basket, which included a new scooter! We are now just waiting for it to warm up and stop raining so we can go outside and ride it! Thank goodness we have wood floors so she can ride it a bit inside!
For our Easter dinner we went over to our friends Scott, Heidi and Will's house. Magnolia was in heaven because they had ham! This child of ours ate 4 pieces!! She has been waiting for weeks to go over and eat some ham so she was one happy camper! We also got to see David's god parents(John and Jo) over there, which is always a fun time. Magnolia got some planting toys from John and Jo so as soon as it warms up we will be getting some flowers to plant. Thank you Scott and Heidi for having us over and making our child so happy by having ham!!!

Fairy Magnolia

Magnolia woke up this morning and wanted to be a fairy. She must have dreams of fairies all night because that was the only thing on her mind all morning. Hands down, she is the cutest fairy I have ever seen! She put her whole outfit together... even the pink high heel shoes! (Makes me glad that I am not a fairy so I dont have to wear high heels!!!!) She was even a fairy when we went to Whole Foods, Target and out for lunch with her daddy. Ahh, I LOVE her imagination!

Magnolia LOVES LOVES LOVES to sing! She usually does not like me recording her, but I finally got a good one of her singing her ABC's. Oh my goodness she is growing up fast!

Saturday- Kites and the beach

We had some very drastic weather changes this weekend. Yesterday we spent the morning at a kite festival and the afternoon at the beach. The weather was SO perfect and truly felt like spring. Magnolia had fun throwing rocks in the water and building sand castles at the beach. Sure makes us excited for summer!

(*You may be asking yourself... "was it really that nice there?" The answer is YES and I have the sunburn to prove it! :) *)

Sunday- SNOW

Yesterday was so beautiful and springy, so we were very surprised when we woke up to snow this morning! Magnolia got new snow shoes from her grammy and pappa and has been waiting and waiting to use them. Needless to say, she was so excited when she saw the snow and realized she could finally get out there and try them out. Even though it was just a bit of snow, she had a blast and reinforced the fact that this child is a snow bunny! She got the hang of them very quickly and within minutes was running around the yard!

Magnolia is allowing me to have a post even though there will not be a single picture of her! Here are just a few of my highlights of Boston. I had such a wonderful time visiting my friend Mariah, getting to know her husband, and meeting her adorable dog Gus. We spent a great deal of time exploring and just enjoying the fact that I could be out and about all day and not have to get home to get a little munchkin down for nap! We went to the town of Magnolia, which is an adorable little coast town. We also saw a really cool castle by the town of Magnolia. We saw the Cheers bar and had fresh lobster for dinner. Thank you to Mariah, Ryan and Gus for the amazing hospitality!

Grammy and Pappa

Grammy and Pappa came last week for a fun-filled visit. I am a bit left out when writing this blog because I was not here for most of their visit. My amazing husband surprised me with a trip to Boston to visit a friend. So... I am only reporting the information that I was told. I wonder if there are any stories that everyone seemed to have "forgotten" to tell me... :) Anyway, it sounds like David, Magnolia, Grammy and Pappa were VERY busy. They went to a few parks, the mall, botanical gardens, skiing, and swimming! Thank you so much to David, Bob and Francyne for taking such great care of Magnolia and allowing me to go enjoy Boston!
