Spring Mow

On Saturday the Sun was shining so Brandon and the kiddos went out to tackle the first spring mow (always the worst)! Marek and McKenna tagged right along behind their was really cute! In sharp contrast to last year, where McKenna was a little afraid of the mower, she had no fear of the beast this year which was really quit nice! I was able to clean up the flower beds and rack the up displaced leaves while they were mowing. Besides cutting back some bushes, putting down new bark, and then planting flowers we are all ready to go for spring!

Big Boy Room

Last weekend we put the finishing touches on Marek's new big boy room! I think most 4 year olds have had a big boy room and bed way before they were actually 4, but not our Marek. We had to really push him to make his crib into a toddler bed, and just last month we finally talked him into trading up to a twin bed! One thing you have to understand about Marek is that he loves routine and consistency, and to be honest its been so nice not to have to go through the whole toddler trying to get out of the bed stage. He went through every stage when he was ready, and he couldn't love his new room more. His favorite part by far are the big fire truck stickers on his wall because of course he's going to be a fire fighter when he grows up. He's getting so big its hard to believe!
