More Firsts and Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday!

Wow, we had some crazy weather yesterday afternoon/evening here in Wisconsin!  We were under a tornado warning and even went and sat in the basement for 30 minutes.  Yikes.  All is well though.  No damage, just frayed nerves.

I have a lot of cute pictures to post, but will probably break them up into a couple of days, so that I don't overwhelm anyone! (Ha!)

Now that the weather is getting nicer, Braelyn has been enjoying a cookie at the picnic table with Mama almost every day.  She likes to look at the water (river) in our backyard and listen to the loud geese.

(Side note...check out one of my fave Mom Blogs for a really sad goose story...)

Here are a few of my recent favorite pictures...

First cookie picnic!
Warm weather also means walks in the stroller!  (I made a note to myself, "must buy baby sunglasses"...notice her little squint/frown?)  It's bright out for us fair-skinned gals!
Daddy put up her new swing!  We thought she'd be scared of it, but she loved it!!!
14 DAYS until my Lil' Peanut turns 1 YEAR!!!

Seriously cannot believe it...


  1. Cute photos. She is darling. My kids have been enjoying their time outdoors lately, too. it's so nice for them to be able to get some fresh air and burn off some of their energy!!

  2. Thanks Dawn! Yes, warm weather means that we're almost ready to plant our big garden too! Looking forward to that! =)

  3. she'll love the garden - think that's why Chris is so fond of gardening (had to harness him and tie him to the pine tree while I turned soil and planted!) never too soon to expose them to you having fun doing neat stuff!
