April Snow Showers bring May Flowers?

Yes, even though my last post was about how NICE out it is getting, and going to the park, and such, we had snow this weekend, and are expecting more this week! UGH!  Anyway, I realized I hadn't updated our blog in a while, so here is what we have been up to recently, along with a few videos and pictures!

This past weekend we celebrated Mom/Grandma Kirkwood's 50th birthday!  We had a lot of fun, especially surprising her with a party (she had no clue!).  If you know her at all, you know that she is hard to surprise with anything, so we were pretty pumped!


Mom's friend Julie makes AMAZING desserts, so we asked her to make them.  They were so good!


Julie (on left) made all of the desserts! Thanks Julie!!!
Another fun part of the weekend was having mom's family from Chicago drive up to celebrate.

In other news, Summer is now 8 and half months old.  It is so crazy!  We have been having lots of fun with some friends we met through ECFE--park dates, playgroups, walks, runs (YES--runs!!!---I am so excited!!!---Adry's mom Rachael likes to run with Adry in her jogging stroller too!!!!---I am so pumped to have a running mommy friend!!!).

Summer LOVES picking up all toys, looking at everything, and playing hard core!  She is also quite the talker these days!  It has been fun to have her "copy" words that we are saying.  Here are a few videos.  The first one is her playing in her playpen.  If she has toys around her to play with, she is happy! The second video is her being a little chatter box.  :)

Yes, I actually was completely surprised! :) It was a really fun celebration!
Love the videos of Summer. What a little spark plug she is. Tucker is so patient with her as she grabs a handful of his fur and pulls. :)
Love to all!
