A Taste of Spring

On Friday, we had a little taste of spring, unfortunately it didn't last long, since the snow arrived again on Saturday! But, we took full advantage of the beautiful day while it lasted and took a walk to the playground. The girls were so happy to be playing outside and had a blast! I can't wait for winter to be over so we can get back to enjoying outdoor activities again!!!

My Little Ham!

I've been trying to take a lot of pictures of the girls recently to practice my newly learned skills (I still have a long way to go!); however, only Macy seems willing to put up with having the camera in her face all of the time. She even seems to be enjoying it a little bit and has been smiling and hamming it up...

Fun playgroup at COSI

Today the girls and I went down to COSI, the science museum here in Columbus. We went with our Thursday, twins playgroup and we had an absolute blast. The girls had been once before, but they weren't old enough to fully enjoy the Kidspace play area. However, today, they were at the perfect age to take advantage of every activity and they loved it!

Of course, the water table was the biggest hit, despite my best efforts to keep them away from discovering it! Thank goodness I brought a change of clothes, because they were soaked! The museum provides cute raincoats for kids to wear, but that doesn't protect their pants and shoes from the buckets of water that get dumped everywhere!
And finally, we ended our adventure by going down to the food court to eat lunch with all of our friends! We were quite the sight, 4 Mom's and 8 kids!

Growing Up

It continues to amaze me how much the girls are changing and growing up recently. They are talking away, repeating everything, understanding so much and quickly turning into little girls! On a whim the other day, I decided to ditch our high chairs for lunch time, in order to try out a meal at "the big girl table." The girls shocked me when they actually stayed seated, kept their food on their plates and ate like big kids! Now, we're not ready to eat here all of the time, but it's quickly becoming a fun treat a few times per week!

We've been going a little crazy at our house, being cooped up in doors with the recent ice storm (pictures coming soon). But, it's allowed me to focus a lot on party planning! Can you believe that in 3.5 months, the girls will be 2 years old?!? It's sure to be another amazing bash again this year and I'm already having so much fun planning away!
