April 27

Kathryn Sam and Colin.
We had more cousin fun today!  Garet's sister Karen came by for the afternoon - we had so much fun with them!  It's so nice to be close to family!

April 26

Sawyer and Colin.
We had a great time today playing with my cousin and her kids!  Sawyer is almost 2 years older than Colin, and Colin LOVES him... we have a car that is named after him!  "Sawyer's car"

April 25

When Dad is in charge.
When I looked outside while Garet was watching Colin, I saw Garet with the hose and Colin laughing like crazy while running through the water... clothes, shoes, cloth diaper, soaked.  It was priceless =)
By the way, this took them all of 15 minutes to do, and Colin loved every minute!  (so did Garet!)

April 24

Enjoying the backyard.
I LOVE having a backyard! Today I just sat and watched Colin and Suzi run around.  We definitely have some landscaping to do, but it is just so nice to be able to sit back and relax (with my big 'ole belly!) while Colin and Suzi get their energy out =)

April 23

It has been a little chilly lately, but that hasn't stopped us from getting outside.  Today Colin helped me sweet the deck.  What a good little helper!

April 22

We went to the Children's Museum today and this was the only pic I got.  Colin was being "a police man" today.  He was making siren noises and beeping all over the place!

April 20

At High Point Museum.
Today we went to the museum and had a great time!  We got to see a train, Colin "drove" a bus, and we got to see a blacksmith working (that is the building Garet and Colin are in front of).  Colin actually enjoyed trying to dig with the shovel rather than watch the blacksmith =)

April 19

Love her.
We have a fence now!  After a few rain delays, it is finally finished!  Suzi LOVES to be able to run around with Colin now!  It is so great!

April 18

Filling up the boat.
We had a fun playdate this morning (why didn't I take a picture of that???) and then this afternoon we played in the water again!

April 17

Our sweet neighbors gave us this boat and the slide... and Colin L.O.V.E.D. it!!!  As you can see he tried to jump in face first!  =)  Silly boy!  He had a blast!

April 16

Sooo happy.
Since we are getting a fence put up, the backyard is off limits for now... so we got creative.  In my head I did NOT plan on it ending up like it did... but I thought, what the heck... get soaked.  =)  As you can see Colin LOVED it!  He was so giggly and happy.... and by the end of our fun he had to be stripped down to go inside!  He was soaked! 

April 15

Choo choo.
We had fun on our train ride at the park today! 
You can read more about our fun day here =)

April 14

Big boy room.
One thing I wanted to make sure I got finished this weekend was Colin's room!  Here is the full view of the room.  =)

April 13

I spy Suzi.
This is our dining room right now...  For our weekend alone we decided to tackle the house, without having any interruptions =)  We did get to go out on dates, but our main goal was to get the house put together.  I got all of our pictures out to try to place them, that's what this picture is of.

April 12

Loving the weather.
Today my parents came by to get Colin... Garet and I had a weekend alone!! 
We have been having picnic's on our patio for almost every meal now that the weather is nice!

April 11

Washing dishes.
I was cooking dinner and Colin was "washing" dishes... which normally is him just running plates under the water.  But tonight I looked over and he had gotten the sponge and some soap and was really washing dishes!  And he was so so so proud!

April 10

Bucket head.
Colin just started walking (and running) around the house with this bucket on his head.  And yes he had a few crashes into the wall.  =)

April 9

Colin absolutely loves water!  I do think it is funny though... as soon as I fill up the water table, he uses his buckets to empty it.  He doesn't spend time actually playing in it, just time getting the water out of it =)

April 8

Smoothies in the sun.
We are loving this weather!!

April 7

Pulling Abby.
We had some friends over this afternoon!  Colin had fun pulling Abby around in the wagon... then they had a blast at the watertable!

April 6

Love them.
Garet had to work this morning, so Colin and I stopped by to visit.  We got to walk down by the lake and I caught this sweet moment.  This afternoon Papaw stopped by for the night! 

April 5

Holding hands.
Tonight during the time Colin is winding down and watching "monkey" (Curious George) he asked me and Garet to sit with him.  We both happily did... while sitting there Garet grabbed by hand, and not a minute later Colin decided he wanted to hold hands too.  Precious.

April 4

Colin and I ran some errands today (on a cold, rainy day!)  We went to Babies R Us to check out some strollers and on the way in Colin wanted to ride Dumbo.  He doesn't care that I didn't put any money in it... he just liked sitting on it =)

April 3

Colin found a new place to "cook" in the new house =)

April 1

Little fireman.
Colin and I headed to the Children's Museum today.  Mondays are "members only" so we were treated to a little singing and dancing - which Colin surprisingly wasn't that into.  Well, not until they brought out the parachute, then he got excited!  We also got to go outside into the garden they have there (it was 70* today!) and blow some bubbles! 
Note that the hat is on backwards.  It is the only way he wears a fire hat =)
