Spring is here!

We welcomed spring today with open arms! Let me say that there is not much finer than to be in Carolina on a blue sky spring day! It was cool but beautiful and after rest time my children just had to get outside.
It was only about 65 outside, but there you have it. "Freezy boy" in long sleeves and pants meets "I'm Hot girl" in a swim suit (thanks LaoLao!) at the water table. Kinda makes me wonder how they'll choose to dress in the long, dog-hot, humid days of NC summer...

Something funny that each of the kids are currently saying ~ Caleb is testing his limits right now and we frequently find ourselves telling him, "Don't do that." Now each time he bumps into something and has a new boo-boo he'll look at the offending chair, door frame, or wall and sternly say, "Nuh nuh, Don du dat!"
Kylie is totally into racing to see who can get buckled in her car seat first, who can get dressed or undressed first, who can finish the last bites of food on their plates first... And her declaration of competition is, "I'm gonna beat up on you!" Ian and I are guessing that we need to start correcting that one before someone thinks she's being physically aggressive!

I canNOT believe she is wearing her swimsuit. She is so funny! I have to say I can totally relate to Caleb. I'm sitting in the living room with the fireplace on and a blanket on my feet.

That picture completely looks like my husband and I. He's in long sleeves and I'm in a t shirt!! Cute bathing suit on Kylie! Is that this season or last?

We were warm yesterday, chilly again today! Thanks for hopping over to my site and leaving a kind word about my baby dog.

Hey the first weekend in April T will be spending the weekend with my sister in the town north of you, if you go to the hands on museum (I know you have a pass) on Friday you might see them there.

You will recognize T, and my sister will be the amazon blond about to lose it taking care of T, HEE HEE!

I love that Kylie is wearing her swimsuit already! I soooo feel for her.

And who knows, maybe this Summer Caleb will even wear SHORT sleeves!

How can it be that we haven't met Caleb yet and been with Kylie only a few times. We are going to have to plan another family reunion. Loved the swimsuit - my kind of "Florida girl." AC

What a cute swimsuit!! Love the color on Kylie. It is so fun to overhear what kids say. Glad you all can get outside now.

Funny Funny kids. They are so differnt aren't they. I can just see someone's face in the grocery store line when Kylie says I am going to beat up on you... Reminds me of a story (before I was born) when you said something similar, yet worse in a grocery store line and mortified Dad. :) Funny Funny

You can certainly say that your children are individuals - they both have their own style and comfort levels. Kylie is "styling" in her new bathing suit. Sounds like she is getting quite competitive, wonder where she gets that from, Kristi? haha
They are so adorable.
Love, LaoLao
