New Jersey Trip

Over Easter we took a family trip to New Jersey.  It had been almost a year since our last visit, so it was long over due.  

Kalea loved the plane ride.  She was so excited, in the week leading up to our trip she kept saying she was going "in an airplane to see Mom-mom and Pop-pop!"  Here she is watching "Frozen" on our first leg on the way there.
We had a lay-over and had quite a walk to our next flight.  Luckily, they had moving walkways for us to get there quicker.  It is tough work traveling with two kids!

Kalea enjoyed our lunch break playing with her princess toys.
Our trip was way too short, so we didn't get to see every one we wanted to.  We enjoyed some quality grandparent time at the park (Landon's first swing).  

We also went to a Phillies game, which was Landon's first.  Kalea is still undefeated going all the way back to my pregnancy!  

Here is Kalea with Mom-mom Linda.
Kalea loved playing in the back yard, climbing up and down the steps, and playing with her Daddies old toys.
Here are some pictures from Easter taken by Pat's Aunt Dee.

We had a great trip.  I wish we knew when we could go again,  but it will definitely not be soon enough.

Pool time!

We did our first trip to the pool after dinner today.  Landon had his first swim and Kalea finally got to start really playing.

Landon didn't like the water at first, but after awhile he warmed up to it.  He was pretty much shivering right away, so he only stayed in for about 10 minutes.

Kalea was excited right away.  This is definitely a big change from last summer when she was not a happy camper getting in the water.  She loved every minute of it.  We even got her to start "jumping" off the side  into our arms.  In one 20 minute session she went from only stepping off with one foot to actually pushing off ( kind of a jump).  

We had so much!  Looking forward to our next trip.  With this heat wave, it will probably be tomorrow evening !

Princess birthday party

Kalea was invited to her first real kid birthday party yesterday.  She had a blast with a Princess theme.  It was so much fun to watch her play with the other kids and have a good time.  The decorations were adorable including a special kids table and a play set turned into a castle.  Landon had fun too meeting some new friends his age.  

Cinderella made a special appearance which was a big hit for the birthday girl who turned 3.  Cinderella led a story, makeup, dance lessons, picture time, and hide and go seek.  

We had so much fun!
