Bounce house fun!

Keaton is so obsessed with bounce houses!  He has no fear and gets in there with all the big kids.  He loves climbing up to the big slide and going down.  It is so cute to watch!  These pictures were taken when he experienced his first bounce house and since then daddy is not needed to help.  He loves getting in there by himself and climbing through everything.

Baby #2!

It is very true when they say that baby # 2 doesn't get quite the same attention to detail as baby #1.  I'm already dealing with this and I'm only 19 weeks pregnant!  With my first pregnancy I thought about every detail, wanted to document all the little changes,and started a pregnancy photo book with weekly photos right away.  Well, pregnancy #2 I'm definitely not as motivated!  Maybe it's the fact that I'm still feeling sick in to week 19 (with Keaton I was over the sickness at week 14) or the fact that I'm running around with a toddler and when he goes to bed, I want to go to bed too!  Doesn't leave much time for anything else!

We did schedule Keaton's 2 year photo shoot right about the time that I got pregnant so I knew I would at least want to do a pregnancy reveal photo.  I searched through Pinterest and found some cute ideas and finally settled on the "and then there were four" idea.  I thought maybe I'd do a gender reveal party with some close friends but after planning Keaton's second birthday party I was over it!  Poor baby #2...already getting the short end of the stick.  I did get on the ball recently and started a pregnancy book for #2 so at least Keaton and this baby will have their own books.  I call that a win for baby #2.

Keaton's second birthday!

My mom and I had so much fun putting together Keaton's 2nd birthday party.  The theme was Keaton's county fair.  We had pony rides, good food and yummy pies!  The petting zoo was the biggest hit with the kids!  Thank you to Gamma for pulling together all the details!  Thanks to my mother-in-law for baking some mini-apple pies!

Life is busy!!

Holy cow, my life has gotten incredibly busy!!  I received a promotion at work and boy are things crazy.  I am so excited to start this new adventure, but until I get the swing of things the blog my take a back seat.

I'll leave you with a few cute pics of Keaton enjoying the first animal cracker he has tasted.  Yummmmm!!!

Swim lessons

Last summer we did swim lessons with Keaton for about 3 months.  At the time he was 8, 9, and 10 months old and absolutely loved every minute of being in the pool!  We decided to do it again this summer and boy was he different!  I thought he may be a little timid about going in the pool, but he was terrified during the first lesson.  Luckily things got a lot better with our second lesson and I anticipate him having more and more fun as the weeks go by.  We can't wait to swim in Gamma's pool when we go to California in July!

Hunting eggs

I would say the biggest hit of Easter weekend was the hunting of eggs. Keaton was obsessed with finding the eggs and made us rehide them probably 30 times!  Drew's mom has a tradition of hiding hard boiled eggs that she has dyed.  It was so fun seeing Keaton run around for the eggs.  He definitely cracked a few when he threw them into his basket.

We had a great dinner over at Grandma and Grandpa Smiths house!

We were so happy that we got to see cousins Jeff, Shelli, Madison and Emilie!  I don't think Keaton wanted to have his picture taken!

We are trying so hard to get a good picture with Gamma, but he's not a fan of the camera!

We also did an Easter egg hunt at our house on Saturday. 

I'll leave you with our family Easter picture. It was such a fun weekend!
