Hello Spring!

We had a great weekend.  Grandma and Grandpa Benedict came to visit us.  On Friday all of us went to the Houston Rodeo.  It was great warm sunny weather.  It's definitely spring time here in Houston, Texas.  We had a great time seeing the animals and the attractions at the rodeo.  We (mostly me) enjoyed a oh so yummy funnel cake.  I don't eat those, but maybe once a year if that so it was definitely a treat.  The girls enjoyed getting out in the nice weather and experiencing the rodeo for the first time.

We and the girls enjoyed spending time with grandma and grandpa.  We did some shopping and spent some time relaxing and having fun.

 The girls are getting more and more active each day.  Rachel has been venturing (army crawling) out of the living room more and more.  We are going to have to get some baby gates sooner than later.  Haley our little mover and shaker has been doing well at transitioning from laying to sitting.

It was such a beautiful day this first day of Spring.  We took a walk and enjoyed the weather with a temp in the high 70's.  I love Spring weather!  It's so nice to say goodbye to Winter.
