Tough Mudder

Theres only a few people in this world that I would agree to doing such an activity with. Lynz, you should be flattered. On a beautiful Sunday morning we far drove out into the desert. We were on a team with some of her T bird friends. I took Ben's spot making us the only all girl team. And footnote, Lynz is early pregnant and her teammates don't know. Hence, why I did the hero carry not once, but twice. It was fun, uncomfortable and for sure memorable. Bucket list for sure and honestly our team did well thanks largely to our male teammates, including a crossfit trainer and an MMA fighter.

Looking comfortable with the hero carry

April Happenings

Davis' "Speed Owl" entry at preschools art show. 
Our apartment is within walking distance to the Princess, where we can feed the ducks and turtles and pray we don't fall in,
My crew after Saturday morning breakfast
And sometimes trips to Cholla end with a trip to Shake Shack.
Meeting up with my Mayo friends for a playdate at the splash pad.
And that day I let them play in the crib for some entertainment.
Brady and Davis drinking and driving in the Barbie mustang.

And she's getting used to sleeping with the sun on her face because of the 10 foot window in her apartment bedroom.

Cholla in Spring

Lots of progress at cholla and adventures with the children into the construction zone. Lots of  blooms in the yard that we'll enjoy for one last time before removing all things with thorns.

Gracie girl drawing on her bathroom wall.
Back patio getting ready for pavers
Backyard is looking like a jungle.
Weeds as tall as she.
So we'll always remember that agave azul gigante was honestly bigger than Davis.
Our neighbors are not loving us right now.

Brick capping the front pillars
We have a front walk
And more blooms in the backyard
Amazing blooms in our front corner drew a crowd in our neighborhood. This plant was relocated to a neighbors yard for safe keeping.

And more big changes when we decided to center the front door to the foyer.

View from office through Davis' bathroom and into his bedroom.

Our super secure front door situation and brick steppers that we eventually would remove.
And our front door installed and centered.

Medleys March Madness

We continued on with our busy spring with getting more settled in our apartment at TPC. Our dear friends, Marissa and Drew, said I do at the Four Seasons. We celebrated Andrew's top 10 at work, Grace's 3rd birthday, Davis 100 days at school, playdates with friends and lots of efforts to finish Cholla, so we can move out of our space with the roaches and below the family of six.

And ice cream cones with friend Natalie

Our front yard is looking worse. Cactus removed and prep for half circle driveway.

And shopping with her is more comical than ever.

This is not safe although demonstrates her passion for cheese.
And some kitchen accessories from Mimi and Pops for her 3rd birthday.

Front walk shaping up. We would soon relocate the door a few feet left. 
And Ill take anyone's help when it comes to picking exterior pain colors. BM Swiss Coffee for the win. 

And dad took the to get their first happy meal with 50cent ice cream cones. 
Jackson's birthday present
And they had a pretend birthday party for Jackson at the apartment that was super cute.

And he celebrated "100 days" at preschool. NFL logo and Star Wars stickers.
And my beloved Old Chicago. 

Progress in view from the dining room
Playdate with Sophie. 
His first season of his new Little League. He was the youngest on his team.
And our yard in bloom. sorry this one has to go. 
YAY progress!
