The shortest month of the year wasn’t going to let itself be forgotten! Packed full of busy, stress, tears, and also much sweet fun. We had two birthdays and two trips. Memories!
We took a long weekend vacay to Cincinnati this year. We got to stay in the cutest little cottage with nooks and crannies everywhere! The kids enjoyed being there as much as the things we did around town.
Eating at O’Charley’sVisiting the Creation MuseumPetting Zoo at the MuseumWe’ve done this girl a great disservice by not living on a farm. She was made to take care of animals!And I decided I want a cow. Like in a big way. Not to eat. Those eyes!!!Intense game of FroggerFancy seafood restaurantThe aquarium. I love Esther’s face!!Playgrounds in downtown Cincy.Maybe we shouldn’t have all gone down at the same time… Miriam is the wise one.Breakfast for lunch, with Popeye in the back.
Each month, we have a “Sacrifice the Normal Day” or SND for short. This month we spent the day in Terra Haute, IN. The Children’s Museum, Clabbergirl Museum, and hiking. Loved it there! This is now one of my favorite pictures of all times!!!Bill may have ridden one of these for a long time…It’s a good SND when the kid who NEVER sleeps in a vehicle is the only one to sleep on the way home.
Because of weird warm weather in February, we took more walks than usual this time of year.
How does Leia end up in so many of our blog posts? And how is she so stinking adorable???
School project making pomander balls.
Bill’s a seminary student again, so I get to hang with these weirdos by myself Tuesday nights. We all decided to sleep together. Really. We’re totally asleep. No, really.
Hanging at one of our favorite rocks at the beginning of one of our favorite trails.
Dates with four of my young loves.
I always talk about how Bill manages to never be in pictures. He texted this one to our church, so I knew he was proud of it and would want it on the blog.
Lots of park play with our awesome neighbors. Does your tongue feel like mine?
Finding this in your purse=real parenting.
Bill and I have long-standing slug bug battle. It gets real. I upped the ante when I took a picture of one when we weren’t together and texted it to him saying “Slug Bug White!” I win.
This kid and his trees. Yes, one of our friends may have told us this tree will eventually need to be cut down, but shhhh.
This girl and I had our “coming of age” weekend with me! We headed to Bloomington and had a sweet time together for four days.

This was a big month for this girl, since she also had her ninth birthday! She said she thought this February was her favorite month ever.Chuck E Cheese’s to celebrate the birthday. Victoria just stood still waiting for Chuck E to come out for more than 10 minutes. She’s a fan!
Heaven’s bed head one morning! It was so fantastic we think we’re going to try to start a trend.
