February Update

As is the case with most months, I have a bunch of random pics I want to keep in for our scrapbook that didn't make it into any of the posts this months.  Without further ado, here is a picture dump from February.

Lila on a buggy ride with her friends at school

Ad working in the computer lab

Lila made me a sweet Valentine's craft at school

Jenn and I went to see Sound of Music at the theater.  It was a fun girl's night out.

And it was sooo good.

Lila is always in to everything.  On this morning, I went to do something in the other room for no less than 2 minutes and came back to her unrolling all the toilet paper.  Sigh.

On one of my Friday's off, the girls and I headed to the garden center to gather supplies to plant a little garden.

We painted paint stirrers with black paint

And apparently painted our hands too....

Then we gathered our shovel and seeds

And planted a little garden.  We have been watering it and watching everything grow.  Ad asks to check on our garden every evening, and I love letting them see what is growing from those tiny seeds we planted.

The finished product

I also got some new flowers for my front porch planters to make things feel a little more like spring.

We were out running a few errands, and I let the girls go in Pet's Mart to see the puppies.  They LOVE doing this.  Free entertainment for the win.

We have been enjoying lots of time outdoors soaking in the gorgeous weather we had in February.  It was full blown spring weather.  Bye bye to our super mild winter.

I could just eat this girl right up.

Lila saw Ad on the potty and wants to do EVERYTHING that Addie does so she had a turn as well.  Of course, there were no results, but I'm hoping this means she will be easy to potty train.  #fingerscrossed

Using our Frozen umbrella on this rainy day.

More candyland

I did my civic duty and voted in the Texas presidential primary election

Ad was sick on this day, and I was in charge of a training so had to be at work.  Poor baby came with me and slept on the floor in the training room.

Then perked up a little and had lunch with me at our lunch and learn.

But then asked to take another nap next to my desk that afternoon.  Poor baby.

Lake Weekend

The last weekend in February, we headed up to the lake with the Rohlings for a weekend of fun and relaxation.  The weather was perfection, and the kiddos had the best time playing together.  We ate, we fished, we went on a boat ride and mostly just enjoyed hanging out for the weekend with our friends.
I love watching the sun rise on the lake.  So pretty.

These three friends are ready for a boat ride.

and so is sweet Marin.

My girls and I out on the water.  I can't think of many things better than this.

We had a pretty cute tour guide.  :)

When each of the girls were born, my dad gave them their own little fishing poles.  We finally brought them up to the lake and they "fished" with the little rubber fish on the ends all weekend long.  Ad really got good at casting, and they loved that they "caught" something every reel in.

The best family pic we could get.  haha

The boys did put some real bait in the water back at the boat house and caught a few fish to show the kids.

Lila got her first ever powdered doughnut that weekend.  Can you tell she was a huge fan?!?  I'm telling you, that girl takes after her mama with her love of sweets.

We came back Sunday evening and played a little Candyland before heading to bed.  My parents got Addie Candyland for Christmas, and she has been absolutely obsessed ever since.  We play several games EVERY night before bed.

The weekend obviously wore the girls out bc when I pulled into the school parking lot Monday morning, this was the sight in my back seat.  :)
