Spring = outside

This spring has been a bizarre one because it's been so warm!  Granted there are days that are cooler - like in the 60's - but overall, we've had a warm spring. Because of that, lots of days have been spent outside. At a park, in the yard, working in the garden, we're not picky about what we DO outside; just as long as we're outside!  I loved looking back at these pictures over this month because of the variety of clothes that the kids have worn outside. One day sweatshirts, the next day just diapers, very strange! So anyway, here are the pictures...enjoy!

Caleb being like his Daddy wearing a backpack. 
It also doubles as a pillow to watch Toy Story on the iPhone!

My Garden!!  It's actually much bigger and mostly in the ground now!  This makes me happy :)
                                                                   Beans and Corn
Broccoli, squash and cucumbers                                                                                      


                         Collard and Mustard Greens

                                                       Lettuce - isn't it cute? It reminds me of cabbage patch kids

This day we were working with Tink and Creed on how to use a spoon and I thought it would be a good idea to use Sundays from McDonalds because what could be better motivation to not miss your mouth than ice cream?  It kind of worked and they had fun so I guess that's a success :)

This baby LOVES a truck - really anything with wheels. And we often find him outside standing in his dump truck like this. and he has a mouthful of corn from our "corn box" that's why his mouth is weird :) 

Boys = Swords in the Andersen house. And swords = tears and lots of pirate noises. But we like it!

and in other HUGE news.....Here's a video of why there are no pictures of Cadence.....she's hard to capture these days :)  and we are SO proud of her!  Click HERE to watch!

We picked the perfect weekend to go to the Mountains - way back in February - because it snowed!!  This winter has been unseasonably warm for us (which I love) but because of that we haven't had opportunities for the kids to play in snow. So, when the forecast said "snow" we were excited. :)  So, sure enough, the day after playing at the aquarium, we woke up to white. and because we were up high in the mtns, it was good snow that packed really well for snowballs.  After dressing the kids warmly, and checking out of our condo, we were off to find a place to play in the snow. We found a great spot and had lots of fun....for about 10 minutes and then the kids were crying because their hands hurt :(  But those 10 minutes were lots of fun and we have the pictures to prove it!  

All our Precious Babies!

 I'm so grateful that our kids have a Daddy they love and who plays with them. He's pretty great :)

We found this pretty cool bridge where i thought that we could get out and walk on and the go down a trail or something, but Caleb wasn't having anything to do with that, so after a few quick pictures, we loaded everyone back up and headed home.
