Sierra Starts Swim Lessons

As Spring approaches, learning to swim becomes a priority. We live in a village by the sea and Sierra loves the water - the danger is that Sierra thinks she can swim, but she can only float. When we checked the swim schedule, we discovered one of our babysitters, Krystina, is the swim instructor! Sierra is going to LOVE swimming lessons with Krystina.

This Tuesday was her first lesson and I got to take the girls to the YMCA for Sierra's ballet lesson at 9:15am and swimming lesson at 11:00am. It was wonderful for me, however, the reason I was able to take the morning off was because Victor came down with strep throat and has been suffering all week. So, feeling sorry for Victor, but loving going to the Y to work out and watch her first lesson was a BIG treat for me!

Enjoy the photos and video...

Weekend Fun & Germs...

This weekend we spent most of our time in lounge wear and sleepers! Unfortunately, the girls and their Daddy are sick again with a terrible coughing and horrible head congestion bug that stinks. So, so we took it easy this weekend. Below are a few cute photos of the last couple of days at home.

Mimi and Grand-pop-pop, your box of goodies showed up on Saturday and the girls love their new outfits & toys! The bunny top and flower leggings were the biggest hit. Thank you both for your thoughtfulness!

Have a great week! We love and miss you all!

Happy Valentine's Day!

What a fun Valentine's Day! Although Mommy had to work, it was fun to celebrate in the morning with our family cards and then at nighttime with presents! Sierra loved her new Princess sleep set and Audrey loved just being near her sister. Our girls are getting to be so close...it's a wonderful gift for us to see. The end of our celebration was concluded with a hug for Daddy by two of his favorite Valentines! Enjoy the photos and Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Playing Together...

Sierra and Audrey are so cute together. Whenever Audrey wants to play with a toy, Sierra wants to play with the same toy too. Sometimes it can be difficult, but sometimes it turns out to be twice as much fun! Take a peek below at Sierra and Audrey riding the new pony...

Below is a cute video of our two girls sharing a ride on Lucky!

Audrey Discovers T.P.

During the same week Sierra discovered toilet paper roll 2 years ago, Audrey discovered it for the first time today! She was so happy to sit and spin it off the roll! What a wonderful sight...you can see the excitement in her big brown eyes!

A Great Day for a Bike Ride...

It was such a beautiful day today, 50 degrees and sunny, Sierra decided to go for a bike ride. She pedaled down the block from our house, up the side street, down Main Street, and all the way home again with her Daddy walking by her side. We were so proud! The last time Sierra got on her trike, she pedaled twice and said, "this is hard work!" So, riding all around the block was a huge success!I just read the weather report and it looks like snow is finally coming back to Wickford. We're expecting light snow tonight and throughout the day tomorrow. Yea!
