Happy Monday, Everyone! Today I'm going to do something new and link up with Heather at Hold My Heart for Mamarazzi Monday.
The goal of this link-up is to post photos that you take throughout the week. Almost like a photo-dump. I'm pretty excited about this as it's a perfect way to sneak more photos into the blog that normally wouldn't make the cut :-).
This week, I broke the rules a little and uploaded a few photos that are not from this week. I just couldn't leave them out! From now on though, I'll do the previous week's photos only.
The photo was actually taken at the end of January. We fixed Brenson's hair for church, and between that and his little button-up, I couldn't get over how BIG he looked. So handsome!
Love my guys in their matching ties :-)
We went to the mall a few weeks ago, and Brenson loooooved this car. So fun.
The rest of the photos are from this week :-).
Our weather has been super wonky lately. One day it's 70 degrees and the next it's snowing. Now, don't get me wrong, I love the winter and the snow, but the nicer days have been fabulous! Thursday, we spent quite a bit of time outside playing. Brenson got this mower for his birthday and it's a BIG hit!
Daddy got home while we were playing and joined us for a bit.
Brianna enjoyed her big wheel. She's finally getting big enough to reach the pedals really well.
After a while, she ditched the big wheel for bubbles . . . probably her favorite outside activity.
Brenson had to take a break from mowing to rest in the grass. We were quickly losing daylight, but that won't be as much of an issue now that we are in DST again. I have a love-hate relationship with DST.
This is pretty much what Brianna's hair always looks like by the end of the day if I don't re-fix it. Oh well.
After mowing, big wheels, and bubbles, we broke out the side-walk chalk. Definitely another favorite! Brenson was such a mess when we were through. Happy, but a mess!
We had a playdate with our favorite twins on Friday. We packed a lunch and planned to go to the park, but the weather betrayed us and it ended up cold and rainy. Boooo. Brianna was so disappointed, so we told her that we would go on Saturday if the weather permitted. Well, it was cold and super windy on Saturday, so we took a walk around our neighborhood, but didn't end up playing outside much or going to the park. Instead, we took a little field trip to Atwoods (a local farm store) to see the baby chicks. Every year in the spring, Atwoods has several troughs that house baby chickens, turkeys, guineas, and ducks. It makes for a fun, quick, and free outing!
They were also handing out free popcorn, so we enjoyed that!
After getting home from Atwoods, we noticed that Brenson felt really hot. Sure enough, he was running a fever. He was so grumpy the rest of the day, and took an extra long afternoon nap. He woke up yesterday (Sunday) with a fever and acting the same, so I kept him home from church. Brianna and Daddy went by themselves.
She looked especially cute - albeit so grown up - yesterday!
I think Brenson is teething? I'm not sure though and didn't want to risk getting anyone else sick if it's a virus. Either way, I'm ready to have my happy guy back!
While Brenson was being a total grumpy-gus and taking up his parents' attention, Brianna happily played in her room. She's generally very good about that. She has several (as you can see) of these snap-n-style girls, babies, and dogs. She loves them because she can dress them herself, and I love them for the same reason :-). We went to check on her and found this:
I love the way they were all dressed and lined up!
Yay for Mamarazzi Monday!
