I've always wanted to celebrate Pi day, my husband is a mathematician after all, but I always forget about it until the day of. And this time I forgot again, but I made pot pie anyway, and Dustin ran to the store and bought a chocolate pie for dessert. Before we ate I snapped this picture of my beautiful girls. I just love them so much, and I'm so glad they are my girls.

May 7th: With the warm weather on the rise, Aurora seemed to take daily falls as she ran or hopped on our daily walks. This particular morning we were on our way home from taking Sisters to school and she was running and fell down. She didn't cry much, but just wanted to get down and run some more. She doesn't run very fast, but she just isn't very steady when running. When we got home she wanted bandaids put on her "owies," and she is so funny as she makes wincing sounds until I put the bandaid over her injury. Then she lets out a big sigh of relief like I made everything better. Its a good thing I stocked up on bandaids for the summer!
Oops! Interrupting a conference call. Still with a hand on her puppy. So cute.
The beach below the lighthouse:
The beautiful grounds surrounding the lighthouse:
The cutest wildlife you could ever find, but only present when touring with the Belt Family:
Amy's magic show:
Skinned knees are just a sign of summer approaching. Minutes after I put on the bandaids she peeled them off. She doesn't really like having them on, but I guess feels its part of the process of fixing her injuries.May 11th: Saturday morning lego time. The girls played legos for hours this Saturday. Its always so nice when they play so well together.
I made chicken pot pie for dinner. Its SO yummy. Its one of my favorite comfort foods. Just had to share.
Somebody got sleepy. Aurora is very difficult to put down for a nap. I just have found it less stressful to skip her nap altogether. She rarely falls asleep like this, but when she does, its not much of a problem. Sometimes bedtime is extended, but not by too much. This girl just loves to be awake and a part of all the action.
May 15th: Aurora and I went to a play group at the playground, but all she wanted to do was go to the beach. So we left the play group early and I took her to play in the sand. She was so happy. When we are going to the beach she loves to sing this song from the show Phineas and Ferb. I don't know what its called, but she just sings, "Backyard beach, backyard beach, backyard beach..." over and over. Its super cute. Since Lake Michigan is almost in our backyard, its quite appropriate. :)

April 1st: Its a grainy shot from my ipod touch, but this is what Amy did when we discovered she had a loose tooth! I love her little sign, and she wrote other notes of the same subject too.
The party was so crazy with 11 girls that I never had a chance to get a picture with Amy and her friends. I took the pictures of the decorations TWO days after the party. It was fun, but a lot of work.... but worth it for my Amy Girl.
