March, so far

Oh my goodness, once again I am floored by all of your love and support! Thank you so much for your sweet words on my last post! We appreciate you all!!
So March has been a pretty fun month so far and I haven't documented any of it! So today I'm sharing some of our fun along with crappy cell phone pictures because this momma never carries around the big camera these days. Someday I'll master 2 kids, the diaper bag and my camera ;)

Zoo day with friends!

It was either this photo, or the one with her finger in her nose ;) I've been spoiled with kids who usually do really well with smiling at the camera, so I laugh at them  in this photo! 
My parents came to visit during their spring break and we had such a great time! We went to their first ever baseball game! Spring training, it's what you do when you visit Arizona in March! We also took them to Snooze, our favorite place for brunching! We went to the wildlife park another day and enjoyed the most perfect weather! We all had so much fun being spoiled with my parents... I guess that's one good thing about moving away from family. The time we do spend together is even sweeter :)

One evening after Eric got home from work, I packed a picnic dinner and we headed to the park to play! These are the things I daydreamed about doing since we've moved here, but Eric always worked too late to make it happen. It's the little things :)

We've hit up the splash pads (because 90 degrees!) but when one splash pad wasn't turned on, Mia found the next best thing. A muddy puddle instead of the sprinklers, ha ha! Yum ;)

We went hiking with friends and saw that gorgeous view from the hole in the rock! I love how much hiking we've done in the last couple of months!

So far our month has been filled with visitors, friends, adventures, beautiful weather and most importantly, family time! Eric's schedule is pretty dreamy this month so we are taking advantage of him working a normal 40 hour week (only the second time this has happened since we moved here!) and soaking up our time together! The best part? The month is only half over... we have even more fun coming in the next couple weeks and I can't wait to share it all! 
Yesterday a woman randomly stopped me to admire James and told me how much she missed the baby phase. She said, "these truly are the best days of your life!" and I believe her! Each day I feel more and more like myself again, I can handle a bit more on my plate (depending on the day ;)) and I am embracing my roll as a mom of two more than ever before! This month (aside from that crazy work accident) has done wonders for my sanity! March, you've been pretty great so far!

Sounds like a pretty great start to March! I need to plan a trip to the zoo stat before it's too hot out again. Also, Snooze is amazing! They opened one in Gilbert last year and I'm hooked :)

Looks like it has been a fun March so far [minus the accident]. What a great idea to have a picnic dinner, I love it. And all your fun pictures just show the love and light that is your family! Love you dearly, friend.

Love that you are feeling more and more like yourself this month with handling two kiddos. You are flexing your mom muscles! I tell that to Aria all the time with any muscle she uses...so my brain just went there ha =)
