Lilly rides!

After watching Lilly at skate land I thought we should try taking her training wheels off. She has good balance so I was sure she could do it. Ryan was doughtful.  But we got the training wheels off the the rest is in the video!

I am so proud of Lilly and her persistance. I was worried that she would give up and not want to keep doing it. She just kept at it and did amazing!

Water Girls

My girls definitely LOVE the water!
 For Ryan's last spring break we decided to go to Wisconsin Dells (the water park capital of the world).  
We stayed at the Atlantis Hotel which also gave us passes to Chula Vista Resort.
It was so wonderful just hanging out with the family. Both Ryan and I have been very stressed with our upcoming move and big changes in our life. It was fun to go and just focus on our girls. 






We also spent time at the Chula Vista Resort with some of our friends and their children. I did not take any pics there. Not really sure why. But we had a great time. 

One evening we had dinner at Famous Dave's. I was so hungry after a day of swimming. It was so great to have some of our best friends the Poulsens join us. They are so easy to be around. I am always surprised at how much we have in common. I can't believe I am not going to see my friend Becca every day. Who knows maybe they will join us in New Mexico some day. 
The rest of spring break was spent enjoying the lovely weather. Of course I did not much of my to do list done but I spent time with my family which is way more important.

Emmy is on the move.

Emmy has been army crawling or scooting for a few weeks now. I can't believe how fast she is getting.

Skate Land here we come

While Ryan was taking his CRDTS test at school I decided to take the girls to Skate Land with one of my best friends Becca. I was not sure how the girls would do with skating. Because Ryan was not coming with me I took our baby sitter Christi with us as well. I just needed an extra hand in case the girls had a hard time skating. To my surprise they both did great!
Lilly totally loved it. 
I was surprised how fast she caught on. Kate liked it at first but then decided it was not for her.

 Lilly even did the limbo.

 Em loved the lights and action.

Kate the Entertainer

My girls crack me up all the time. This day Kate decided to do a puppet show for Emmy. I could not always tell what her story was about (I am not sure Kate even know) but she even did different voices the the different characters. I do know that one of her puppets got in trouble and had to go to time out. 
 Emm was totally entertained!
