Triumphant Return!

The last few months have been the blurriest blur that ever blurred.  I can barely even remember March, April or May.  Luckily, I did manage to take photos occasionally so this is what I've pieced together:

While we were in Denver to celebrate Evie's birthday we also got to meet our brand new niece, Brailyn, and celebrate her baptism.

We had awesome weather (especially for March) when we got back so Evie got to play at the park for the first time!  And promptly ate as many small rocks as possible.
We spent a lot of time as Princess Anna doing the tick tock scene during the song "Do you want to build a snowman?"
 And we read lots of Barney.

Then we had our biggest snowstorm of the year and built our own snow castle.

 "Somebunny" stopped by and we ate way too much chocolate.

We celebrated Dad's birthday.  The cake escaped with only one drop to the face.  Ahh, the joy of three year olds.

We wore underwear on our heads and Loubis to do laundry.
We rested.
And played.

We went to Costa Rica -
and made some new friends.
We pretended to be grown ups.

We played at our new neighborhood's park (oh yeah...we moved too).
We wore pigtails for the first time!
And "taught Carlos how to sit".
We turned into teenagers and spectated big sis' swim lessons.

We gave big sis a ride and scandalized poor Princess Anna.
We celebrated Mother's Day (aka Coronation Day according to L)

We shared juice and suddenly turned into little friends (and also enemies).
We had a new nanny no-show on her first day.  So we called it quits and went to McDonald's.

We broke out our Cinderella waffle maker and made waffles for the first time as a family!

We tried Fudgecicles for the first time and rocked on our new rocking chairs (I've always wanted white rocking chairs on my very own porch!!!)

 We went to the horse races for the first time and got rained out so we went to a video rental place (also for the first time!) and rented all the Disney movies we could get our hands on and had a family movie night.  (We apparently had lots of firsts this Spring!)
We painted our door blue!  And planted flowers and put up our American flag.  And spent a shameful amount of time at Lowe's.

We had a great Memorial Day and finally made it through May!
It feels good to have reached June - the last few months have been a crazy ride with 2 mortgage refinances, buying a new house, moving, several trips, and my fiscal year end.  I'm so excited that summer's here - I've been looking forward to these longer, warmer days for a long time!
