Giving In

I have almost three-months-worth of posts to catch up on, but I don't want to tackle the mass of pictures and memories that need sorting at the moment. Life is particularly wonderful right now. The sun is shining, Alice has been sleeping through the night for the past two weeks, and Colby keeps cracking me up (when he's not throwing a tantrum...I've decided that the terrible twos aren't terrible all the time, it's more a season of extreme bi-polarity where he's happy one minute and not so happy the next, so I just have to embrace the sweet and endure the bitter).
:: Spring is here in Tucson (we've experienced Fall and Spring in a two month span) and the weather is gorgeous bordering on hot.
:: Our neighbors gave us a cutting from their grape vine and Robb moved a chunk of our drip system over to water it. Unfortunately, I realized a week later the piece of line wasn't dripping, so we might not end up being the proud owners of a vineyard.
:: We try to grill outside at least once a week. Right now our favorite thing to munch on is grilled pizza. So good.
:: Robb and I went on our first real date, post-Alice, to Bog Spring
The Spring is actually a concrete tub of water at this time of year
But there were trees, the kind you'd see in the Lord of the Rings
And they made my heart happy
So did this guy.
:: The Rodeo came to town (apparently it's a big deal around these even lets out for two days), and to celebrate, our own little community held a kid version with a mini mechanical bull, horse rides, a petting zoo, and train rides. Colby wasn't interested in the first two events and preferred to admire the animals from a distance, but he LOVED the train.
 :: Both boys need a haircut and I bought ice cream in anticipation (we're not above bribery in this family), Colby is watching Frozen, and I'm looking forward to a mellow evening of snuggling (at least once his hair is cut). 


  1. I love your blog updates, Lakin! It's fun to see your happy little family. And I totally agree on your terrible two theory. :)

  2. lakin! This was such a cute post! I can almost feel that warm sunshine from the photos (it's cold and down pouring here). Glad life is going so well! :)
