Muffins with Mom

The twins' preschool hosted "Muffins with Mom" today. The twins made paper fans and ate about 5 times their weight in food. I am not sure there was anything left when they were done. I tried to get some nice pictures with the twins, but they were not into it. 

 Mom's biggest fan!

Piano Recital

Devlin started playing piano in September and has been taking lessons once a week. This past weekend, he played in his first recital. For those of you who know Devlin, this was a huge step for him. He was very nervous and we weren't sure he was going to actually play, but he did! After the program, he said it was a lot of fun and he wants to do it again.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles 2017

For the third year (2015 and 2016), we took the kids to the Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Festival in Plant City. First stop is always the play area, face painting, monster truck building, and bounce houses. 
 Colette's favorite plane!
  War Eagle!
   Kids could have spent all day playing on the train. 
 Waiting patiently for the trains to come around. 
  This is his choo-choo face.
Climbing in the fire truck is always a hit.
