Easter 2012

Life has been busy! We have been squeezing so many things into a small amount of time so I have had a bit of trouble keeping up with the blog. Between building a home, managing a household, working, Cabo, Port A, Easter, Avery’s 4th Birthday which we celebrated two weekends in a row, Lyla’s 1st Birthday, and other things that I’m forgetting right now, I’m finding it hard to keep up. I’m really looking forward to this summer because we have tons of fun things planned but it will be much like the Spring so my challenge will be to post more often if possible.

Avery and Olivia are the most precious gifts I could have ever been given.   They inspire me, challenge me, keep me grounded, bring so much happiness, love me unconditionally, and exhaust me every single day.   I’m so blessed to have these precious girls in my life!   Children open your eyes to things you’ve either never seen before or have forgotten.   With Mother’s Day having just past (which I owe a post on as well as Easter and Avery’s 4th birthday), I have been thinking about how becoming a mom has changed my life and all I can feel is exceptionally grateful!

A couple of weeks ago, Scott booked us a week at Cinnamon Shores in Port Aransas. Last summer, I noticed the new seaside village and was dying to stay there so he surprised me with the trip. He also managed to slip in some work by visiting his customers down in that area.

The home we rented was amazing! It was a great home away from home. We brought our nanny, Adrienne, so we could get some R&R as well. The girls had the best time and it was nice to just spend quality time together as a family for a week without a ton of work-related distractions. Avery and Olivia are growing way too fast and I really cherish these special times with them where I can just focus on them.

Cabo Spring 2012

To say that I’m behind on posting would be an understatement. I’ve been so busy living life that I keep forgetting to update this blog. However, I don’t want the girls to forget these memories and nor do I so I’m forcing myself to catch up!

We went to Cabo with Dawn and Matt for Spring Break in early March. Avery came along with us and Nana and Papa offered to keep Lyla and Livy so they stayed behind. We had a very memorable and wonderful trip from start to finish. If Livy was with us, we sure would have loved to stay there a lot longer than a week. We always enjoy it there so much! I certainly look forward to going back soon!

Waiting for our flight (which turned out to be very, very, very delayed due to weather):

Once we finally arrived, it was all about being in the water for this little fish:
