Harper's first Gymnastics Class

We took you to let it shine for your first gymnastics class - you loved the first 20 minutes when it was FREE play but once they stuck you in a room and made you go in a circle you hated it.  Memo and Papa were there to watch Brady which was helpful!!

You loved the balance beam and the foam pit!!
Walking on the balance beam!

Brady's first Ice Cream Cone

Easter 2012

We were in Ohio for Easter this year, and it was unseasonably warm!  We took advantage of the weather and played outside the entire day!
Harper you loved coloring Easter eggs and Brady you enjoyed being able to walk around outside the entire time!
It was very windy on Easter
