A Beautiful Busy Spring Day

Yesterday was a gorgeous spring day. It got up to 75 degrees and it was very sunny. We had a very busy day but took advantage of the nice weather.

The first thing on our agenda was Kaden’s first weigh in at the doctor’s office. After only being home for five days he gained 9 ounces. He’s now 9 lbs 8 ozs. When we left the hospital he was 8 lbs 15 ozs. He better slow down or he will catch up with Mattey in no time.

Then Megan and I spent some time outside playing and cleaning the garage. She really wanted to go for a bike ride, so we convinced Mattey to come along too. Kelly pushed Kaden in the stroller while Megan rode ahead of us all and Mattey rode her tricycle by herself. Normally we have had to push her while she rides her tricycle, it has a handle for this purpose, but this time she actually was doing most of the pedaling and some of the steering. That is one thing she needs to work on.

After our ride, Kelly asked the girls if they wanted to plant their bulbs, which they received for Easter. They also received little gardening kits to help in the planting process. They each dug their holes, planted, and watered their three bulbs. They had fun.

Next we headed over to the dollar theater, which is now $1.50, with my parents to watch Racing Stripes. It was a good movie, funny and had a good story.

Overall it was a great day to be out and enjoying the fresh air. Of course there are a few pictures available in the Gallery.

It was so nice to get out and take a little walk and plant some flowers. I did have to miss out on the movie but I got a little nap in so we could watch four episodes of 24. I wish we could have weather like this through most of the year. Is there really a place that has great weather most of the time?

No, honestly it was like that when we walked by. :-) And are you calling us hooked because we stayed up until 3 am, for two days in a row, to watch 24?

No, we've lost a little steam with the Chicken Spot epidemic in our household. We're only on episode 15 of Season 2.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's hooked on 24. I think Season 4 is the best one yet.

Well we've finished Season 2 and have watched the first 8 episodes of Season 3. We will be anxiously waiting for Season 4 to come out on DVD.
