So, my mom has been reminding me that I HAVE to keep up with this boys have too. So, my new year's resolution is to post more frequently so that my kids have a record to look back on when they are older.

We are getting excited about Valentine's day around here! Lots of fun projects for school and home and lots of treats. It's such a fun season with the boys to celebrate special occasions. They are growing up so fast and I want to enjoy each and every moment!

I was looking through pictures tonight from over the years and remembering so many great memories with Dave and the boys. Makes me so happy to have four special Valentines. :)

Until next time...which will be in a few days I promise!

I'm back!

It's been too long! We had a great Summer and maybe someday I will be able to catch up on posting about everything. David had his first day of first grade today and loved it. He can't wait to go back tomorrow. I will post about it tomorrow. Life is full and good.

The Beach!

 Last week we took our first trip to the beach of the season! It was a beautiful day and although the water was freezing, David and Owen went in! We played in the sand and played soccer and afterwards went to the boardwalk for some rides. It was a really fun day and we look forward to many more beach days this Summer.

Longwood Gardens with our friends

Last week on another beautiful day, I met my dear friend Jen and her boys at Longwood Gardens.
The boys had a blast running around and playing in the fountains and it was lovely to catch up with Jen. Miss you and love you my friend!

Our 1st Strawberry Picking of the Season

Last week we went strawberry picking for the first time this season. We are hoping to be able to go again next week as I promised Owen that we would make strawberry jam. The strawberries were delicious! 

Enjoying the strawberries!!!

My First Long Race!

 A couple of weeks ago, Dave and I along with some friends and family were able to run the Broad Street Run a 10 mile run that goes right down Broad Street in Philly. It was so much fun! I would love to do another one. I can't describe the feeling I had at the finish. I hope that I can keep running for years and years to come!

 At the finish with my sister-in-law, Amy.
 We did it!

David's Get Fit Day at School

 A few weeks ago, David's school had a fantastic field day. They had soccer, karate, moon bounces, obstacle courses, relay races, sack races, tug of war, scooter races, jazzercise, and more! I was able to be with him the entire day to help out and it was such a blast and a very special memory. We love all of his teachers and it's really fun to see him interact with them and his little buddies. He is so mature at school! He seems so grown up and I can hardly believe that this year is almost over. He just loved every minute of this day!

 His teacher made all the kids special shirts with their names on the back. So sweet!
