tap tap. Ah, poor neglected blog. Much like many other poor, neglected things in my life right now. My house, the yard, my weight loss program…the list goes on. There is just not enough time in the day or in the weekend for that matter. In an attempt to have ONE “What have we been up to?” post in between the Mylestone updates (which I seriously have to force myself to write…no time, no time!), I give you the D Family events recap:
We’ve been sick. That’s about it in a nutshell. I know, how boring. J with bronchitis, me with some form of sinus infection, M with double EIs and now S, off to the doctor today with daddy after complaining at night that her ear hurt, is the likely next candidate for some antibiotics. We’ve spent more money at Wags this past month than I care to admit (although most of that comes off of our Benny card…love that!). It seems that as soon as the nice weather hit, we all caught a bug of some kind.
Speaking of the weather, how glorious to have 70/80 degree temps in MARCH! Yup, good ‘ol WI weather, sure never know what to expect. Once I heard the forecast for the week, I dove into closets and boxes and started pulling tags off of all the kids’ summer clothes. It was so much fun. Seriously. I LOVE getting them ready for new seasons and pulling out all my bargin finds.
S has been enjoying all things outdoors…chalk, trips to the park, walks on the nature trail, backyard fun. And Myles has taken his first swing at the park and discovered the weirdness of grass. He’s totally perplexed by it, it’s really kind of funny.
This early summer-like weather has me thinking of all the fun things we want to do this summer. Trips up north, swimming lessons, storybook ballet (S is totally game for another round!), library trips, setting up the pool in the backyard, strawberry picking, etc., etc. Oh, and one big birthday bash for a certain little man who will be turning ONE and a special little lady turning FOUR. Yeah, mommy’s been planning some splashy good fun (in all my spare time). And with spring break quickly approaching (thank gawd!), I’m hoping this weather streak will continue and we can partake in picnics and trips to the zoo and all kinds of outdoor fun things very soon!
So, not much of an exciting read, but it makes me feel better to get a post out there. And what would a post be without some pics of the kiddos? ‘Til next time…

mmm…mangoes. and dare I say “I’ll have the roast duck with the mango salsa” in my best caveman voice?
S’s new picnic table courtesy of our awesome neighbors!
