Back to the grind

We had such a fabulous spring break with beautiful weather.  We took in a new park everyday and thoroughly enjoyed family time.

But, as all good things must come to an end today was the first day back to school for the kids.
Loved Alayna's face too much not to share!
She really was excited!
The girls were super excited to be heading back to school and Alayna even told me, "more school" as soon as she got home.  Guess she had a great day.

Aidan and I headed out to the dentist and orthodontist this morning before he headed to school.  I don't usually take pictures of Aidan at the dentist but he was a good sport to model "appropriate behavior" at the dentist.  I am going to make a book for his little Ukrainian sister who doesn't really enjoy the dentist visits. The girls had their check ups a couple weeks ago and you know who screamed right through it and they hardly touched her!  Alayna on the other hand jumped up in the chair and didn't fuss a bit.
Smile pretty Aidan!
In February, Aidan entered the build your best snowman competition at his ortho's office.  Now remember we didn't have any snow this winter so Aidan had to get creative.  He used floam for the snowman and it came out adorable.  To Aidan's surprise and excitement he won a Flip video camera for his entry!  Go Aidan. 
Look what I won!!!!
Celebrating Mommy's birthday
I only wish we had a video of the kids singing happy birthday to me.
Alayna sang every word and blew out my candle for me!
I am blessed!!!
Happy Spring!
