Life lately

Life has been wild and crazy around here! It is finally spring in Ohio and we have loved being outside! It is amazing how fast this year is flying by and that Easter is just a week away!
It has been super windy and the wind brought a new friend to our backyard. The kids had so much fun with turtle! He has gone away now, the wind took him home but we need to buy a replacement friend!
Taking some time for hugs!
They love each other so much
Colin looked so big leaving school this week!
My boys before bed
We did some Sunday driving a few weeks ago and stopped for an early dinner! It was also kids eat free night. We rarely do things like this without planning so it was an unexpected surprise!
We got some ice cream at Graeters and it was amazing! They even made a special face sundae for Kaitlin with eyes, a mouth and a nose! It was so adorable and totally freaked her out! She removed it then enjoyed her icecream,

Can't wait to go back there soon!

A frozen birthday

We got home and wanted to do a small party for Kaitlin on her actual birthday! We got the cutest cake and it was so yummy! Kaitlin was so excited and told the entire birthday it was perfect! She is so sweet!
Just a small party and it was perfect! We got Chickfila and had cake! And we had a ballon!

On our way back to Ohio we stopped at the Newport Aquarium! We wanted to do something fun fot Kaitlin's birthday and this was perfect! It was a huge place and it was crazy busy with spring breakers! We got tickets for the special Peguin Experince for Kory and Kailtin! They got behind the scene access with the peguins and had an amazing time!
They got to play with the peguins and Kaitlin asked tons of questions. And educated the group about the peguins from the show "Little Einsteins"! The peguins were very well behaved and one camped out at Kory's shin for at least five minutes. The peguins were ready to play and very friendly.
Kaitlin loved every second
Look at these cute little guys
And even got to pet them
Kaitlin loved this turtle.... He was 100 years old
Such a fun family day
Kaitlin was so proud that she was almost as tall as a shark
Kaitlin had the best time all day and taught so many people about the different animals!
It was an Experince we will always remember
