More Spring Break Fun!

He really enjoyed his homemade butternut squash!


Connor's Catch of the Day
He went fishing yesterday with my mom and dad.

Connor's favorite treat

Can't believe it is already Friday! Time flies when you are having fun! It has been a great week hanging with my wonderful family. This weather has been absolutely perfect! I could not have asked for better weather for all of our outdoor fun.
Bradley started solid foods today! He has been getting rice cereal since he was four months old. I made him homemade butternut squash. I thought that would be a great first food for him to try. My goal is to make all his baby food myself. My friend Sarah made her own baby food for her little Audrey and has really inspired me to do the same. I tried making my own baby food with Connor but was very unhappy with the texture of the food. I gave up way too soon. I like knowing how fresh the produce is and how it was prepared. I also bought me a Blendtec Blender and I love, LOVE this thing. Yes- I know it is very expensive and you can buy a cheaper blender. But, it blends things like you would not believe. It is well worth the investment. It makes the smoothest smoothies. I feel like I have a Keva Juice at my house. Connor has a smoothie every morning with his breakfast. This blender makes the smoothest baby foods! It looks like the same texture that you get from the jar. It is great! Plus, the color of the baby food is so much brighter since it is fresh and actually looks good! Thank you Breanne for recommending the Blendtec! It is amazing!

Spring Break Fun

Having fun at the zoo!

My two cuties! Don't they look just alike?

Had a great time at the zoo!

It's finally spring break! We've been having a lot of fun at home. This weekend we went to the Aquarium with the kids and Josh's parents. We had a lot of fun looking at the shark aquarium and then had lunch at P.F. Changs. Yum! On Tuesday, Josh and I took the boys to the zoo and it was a perfect day outside! It was a great day for the zoo. Connor had a lot of fun! He was a little disappointed that the reptile house was closed. That's one of his favorite parts of the zoo! Bradley had a lot of fun too. He enjoyed just being able to be outside and look around at everything.
We also have been looking at buying our first travel trailer! We really want to be able to take the boys camping and fishing this year. We recently sold our boat since we were not using it at all. We learned that we just like to camping, not boating. Plus, we need some place for the kids to get out the sun and take naps. Tents are not the best for babies. We really like a trailer at Camping World and are considering buying it. We (or just I) just want to make sure that it has everything that we need and want in a trailer. If it was up to Josh it would have already been a done deal.
Bradley's therapy is going very well. He goes to therapy every two weeks. We have seen a huge improvement in his mobility. Our therapist is absolutely wonderful. Bradley just got fitted for his helmet on Monday. He has his appointment for his final fitting next Friday. From that point on, he has to wear it everyday until his flat side is corrected. I am a little worried about how he is going to respond to wearing it all the time. It has to be uncomfortable and just plain hot! He will have to wear it anywhere between 3 to 6 months depending on how fast it corrects itself and how quickly his head grows. I am praying that it is closer to 3 than 6.
