Some more pictures

Just some pictures I've taken over the past week or so!

Flying a kite with dad in the backyard

Conspiring with the kids at Bri's birthday party

Climbing this huge ladder BY HERSELF!
She went up it again and again - like it was no problem at all.

Blowing bubbles with Dad

She figured out how to blow bubbles by herself, too!

Watching the turtle eat everything in the flowerbed

Watching the planes at the airshow with dad - one of many!
Actually now we can say that both of our kids have been going to airshows
since before they were born - Her 'real' first one was at Miramar AFB
while I was pregnant with her!

And Mike's birthday is tomorrow, so I made these Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes for him! They are SOOO good - hopefully there will be some left tomorrow :)

Spring has sprung!

Well, it is fully and undoubtedly spring here - so that means yard work! And considering that we're going to be up in the 90's next week, we have to take the opportunity while we can. So Mike bought 4 new citrus trees and a whole bunch of flowering vines and bushes. He and Aurora have been spending all their free time outside playing in the mud and water getting everything planted. Of course, I've been taking pictures!

At Home Depot looking at plants - I ask her to smile, and this is what I get:

Here are the four new trees around the pool -
lemon, grapefruit, lime and orange.
The lemon already has tons of baby lemons on it!

Helping daddy plant the lemon tree

Lemon tree, very pretty - and the lemon flower is sweet -

Yep, playing in the pool in February!

"Sleeping" with Brianna after brunch this morning -

And the beautiful bouquet Mike picked for me from our own backyard!
