Day-to-Day, February 26

And here we are at the end of February already!  Crazy.  Here are a few pictures from this month...

February started with a conference I went to for work, which happened to coincide with the craziest little snow storm Dallas has seen in a while!  The view from my hotel balcony...

Eli's school closed early and I was at the conference, so poor Eric spent HOURS on the road that day shuttling Eli back and forth.  Crazy coincidence!

Eli had a week off last week for winter break, so I took him to the zoo one day.  He wanted to have his picture taken by the crocodiles.

He is always doing these goofy faces for pictures lately.  I love it.  :)

Playing in the water- it was juuuuust warm enough to do this.

Another crazy pose.

This lion was extra playful while we were there.  I literally had to physically push Eli over to the glass so I could get a picture- he was a little scared of the pacing lion right behind him!  

Last weekend we went to Daingerfield with our friends the Ninos.  We had a blast, as always!

Goofy, goofy, goofy.

Our new hammock is a HIT!  

Eli and Ethan.  Who happen to be semi-matching.

My sweet boy, on a hike.

A rare picture of the two of us together!

They had a little craft time for the kids on Saturday.  This craft was right up Eli's alley!  (It's a campfire in case you can't tell from the blurry phone picture!)

The boys on the boat.  

Traditional sit-on-the-sign-with-the-sun-in-your-eyes photograph.

And with that, it's March!  We're super ready for spring!

Day-to-Day, February 4

January was pretty uneventful, which was a welcome relief after a crazy holiday season!  Here are some pictures from this month...

Painting a train set that Uncle Les and Aunt Robyn gave Eli for Christmas:

We played a lot of baseball this month.  Eli loves it.

Charlie had his 4th birthday at the Gentle Zoo.  Eli, always the animal lover, enjoyed feeding the goats:

They have this amazing bounce "pad" thing at the Gentle Zoo.  The kids LOVED it and stayed on it forever.  The dads couldn't help themselves either (see Eric in the background).  :)

And the giant sandbox is always a hit:

All dressed up for "work."  (He really, in all seriousness, thinks that his "job" is to "work with Timothy."  The schemes and plans those two come up with are insane and adorable all at the same time.)

Eli loves to lay in our bed because "it's the coziest."

Last weekend we went to a Sidekicks (professional indoor soccer) game.  Eli was totally enthralled.

His face here cracks me up.

It's been a really nice month!  We've so enjoyed the weekends together without big plans- this is totally contrary to our normal "M.O.," but it has been so refreshing!  I feel like it is a gift from the Lord before spring comes and pushes us back into a busier schedule!  

Blessings to you this as we begin February!
