March Madness

Yep, it's the middle of April and I'm just getting around to March.  It seems like the more things we do and the more I have to blog about..the less time I have to do it!  So I'm kinda cheating for March and throwing it all together in this post!  It was a busy month (guess life is pretty busy now :)  We had so much great weather so we took advantage of it by going to the park a ton, we had a couple play dates with our little cousins, and went to Story Time at the library with one of my best friends, Jocelyn and her daughter Torrie...and we made a couple special trips to do fun things with the kids.  First stop.....California State Railroad Museum!

If I haven't said it before, I'll say it again....Timmy loves trains!!!  Can't get enough of 'em, so this trip was especially fun for him.  There were big running trains outside, old trains on display in the museum, and lots of toy trains (displayed and running) all over the place throughout the museum.  They even have a huge area upstairs with tracks and choo choo trains for the kids to play with.  Timmy was in "too too tain" heaven!

Kalllie fell right when we got there and got like 5 slivers in her hand.  She's such a trooper though; she didn't complain at all...until we got home and had to take them out :/

Daddy and Emma

Have I mentioned how much this little guy loves trains???

Let me clarify....he LOOOOVES trians!!!

Byt the end of the day, everyone was tired and it was hard getting Timmy to part with the trains, but.....

...a little bribe of ice cream always seems to do the trick!

Another special trip we took was to the Jelly Belly Factory with Grandma.  We had lunch and let the kids pick out a treat before we left.  They're so much fun right now!!!

I told everyone to wait for me at the door before leaving and this is how I found Emma :)

Surprisingly, the kids liked their hats and kept them on.  Wish I could get them to leave real hats on!


The Jelly Belly shaped pizza was a big hit!

Grandma and the girls :)  Emma-L, Kallie-R

Timmy didn't quite understand that you're not supposed to just take the jelly bellies out of the containers and eat them.  I found him like this several times....ooops!

March was so much fun!  April has already been just as busy, but it's got me excited about the summer and getting out with the kids.  I guess you never stop getting Spring fever!
