This last week was spring break.  Travis had baseball everyday so we just did things in the area.  My sister gave us passes to the water park. We ate at Texas Roadhouse and the girls thought it was great that you could throw the peanut shells on the ground.  We went to the second Lego movie.  It was so cute and creative.  After the Lego movie we then played Lego’s for two days straight.   WE were finally able to get outside for a little bit. THANK THE LORD for a little sunshine. It is amazing how warm 26 degrees can feel without wind and with sun.   Then today, we walked in the St.Patrick’s day parade! My family is very Irish. My grandma was actually 100 percent Irish.  The girls had the BEST time.  Emmy was on cloud nine handing out candy. I am pretty sure she is a professional now.  Kenna loved seeing everyone and Jovie lived it up by riding in the wagon eating candy.


WOOT WOOT, I am 26 weeks pregnant and feeling pregnant.  This pregnancy as been my hardest one. I am beyond tired, anxious, have trouble sleeping, I always feel bad about not wanting to do anything, and I think this crazy long winter is just taking all of those emotions and tiredness up a notch.  I am ready for a change in weather and change in pace.  I think the girls and I are ready to get back outside.  I have been working on getting more sleep, making sure I am taking all of my vitamins, trying to exercise more, and getting outside.  On a happier note, the baby is growing good, and I can feel her/him move all the time:) 🙂 🙂
