We've had a busy few weeks so now it's time to catch up on the blog! Brody lost his first tooth last week! He did a great job wiggling it until it was almost out and then I came in and did one little push and it was out! He was so happy to have the tooth fairy visit! Luckily for his birthday last year his BFF Kolden gave him a tooth fairy pillow! I'm sure he will put it to great use in the next few years! He instantly looks older with a missing tooth! The adult tooth is already through the gum so it was definitely time!
My Aunt Anita and her friend Sonjia came to stay with us for a week and escape from the cold weather in Iowa. It was fun to catch up with them and show them around our new digs! They took us out for ice cream at our new favorite ice cream shoppe on the last night before they flew home! We had lots of fun and even learned a few new games! Can't wait until they come again!
Last weekend we kept on the go! It really started Thursday night with a trip to the park with our neighbors and then we headed to school to see Marissa's project in the science fair. Friday night, my husband the grillmaster, grilled us a very yummy dinner which was followed by a glow stick party aka gymnastics with the glow sticks on. The kids love playing in the back yard and doing gymnastics and it has really warmed up this week into the 80's again. We of course LOVE the warmth! Saturday we spent at the Jacksonville Zoo. Tony's family had gifted us admission for Christmas. It was so fun to see all the different animals they had and lots of interactive opportunities as well.
Sunday after church we went to the beach as we just had to take advantage of the beautiful weather. After we forced ourselves to leave we tried a new seafood restaurant that had just opened on the intercoastal waterway. Super yummy! Can't wait to try it again!
Brody's baseball started tonight so I'm anxiously awaiting to hear how it went! We also got our fence installed today so we are super excited about that! It's the little things that get done around here that are the exciting things in our lives. HA! We are counting down the days until Grandpa and Grandma arrive over Spring Break! Well that's about it for us! Until next time....
