Beautiful weather...

Anna and Benjamin on one of the walks we took this week. Most of the week the weather was sunny and in the 40's and 50's. This day it hit 60 degrees. Yay!!! It was a beautiful day and it was so fun watching Ben marvel at the outdoors. There's just so much for him to see! We even sat down and had a little 'picnic snack' during our exploring. So all of the snow has melted, and we hope it stays that way until next winter. :)

Anna getting in some running (which she manages to do often enough in our apartment, but it's just different with the wide open space). This is on a trail that goes through town and part of it comes right up to our apartment complex. So convenient.

We went to the Children's Museum last Saturday when my parents were visiting. Now that Ben is so mobile, it's really nice having another adult(s) along. I do still go on my own, but we've started occasionally going on Saturdays so Ethan can come with us.

Every few months my dad has various work meetings/conferences that he attends around our area, lucky for us. That's why they were visiting this past weekend. We had lots of fun with them including a few hikes, ate at Zenders in Frankenmuth (famous for their incredibly delicious Chicken dinners), story time at the library, a visit with my Aunt Cindy in Midland, Children's Museum, and of course some euchre after the kids went to bed. My parents were here Fri. night through Tues. early morning, so we could fit in a lot of different activities. Good times!

Okay, one final thing. Every week or so we rent a movie and I've decided to watch some of the classics. This past weekend we watched The Sting and really enjoyed it. Casa Blanca is also on my list. Soooo, any 'oldies but goodies' you'd like to suggest? Let me know....

I would suggest classics like Predator, Star Wars, Aliens, and the like but just depends on your definition of classic.
