First let me say, happy nine-year-date-anniversary to Ben! We started dating nine years ago today and these have been the best nine years ever! I'm looking forward to more adventures over the next nine (and more) years! :)
February 9, 2008 - First date :)
January 28, 2017 - most recent date :)
Here is a little look at life lately:
Caroline was super chilled out in the car last week ;)
I was sick in bed... and the girls wanted to visit me
By Friday, the girls had destroyed the playroom
Ben said they buried themselves under all the toys in the corner...
Sunday was Super Doubles at Harris Teeter and my first day out of the house
Sunday afternoon, Elizabeth and I made brownies for the Super Bowl
We had a blast watching the game with the girls
On Monday morning, I took the girls to the mall to play after we ran some errands
Monday afternoon we took a walk on the nature trail
Well, I walked and they ran ;)
And had stick fights
And ran across the bridge
After the nature trail, we went to the playground for a bit
Caroline LOVES to climb the ladder
We went back home and grabbed Elizabeth's roller skates and did a little practicing
Caroline was too busy looking at Elizabeth's skates to smile for the picture :)
Monday night I sent this picture to Stacy.
The girls either sat one me, held my hand, or wanted to be held all day.
I think they missed me while I was sick and stuck in bed
Tuesday afternoon we walked the nature trail again
Had a rock throwing contest
We went over to the playground and they raced up and down the slides for 10 minutes
Tuesday night we went to Chick-Fil-A kids club.
They made book marks and cards for Valentine's Day
Oh, Hi Mom!
Elizabeth LOVES the cow!
Caroline does a nervous laugh around the cow and then hides.
Wednesday it was 70 DEGREES!!!
We spent half the day at the zoo and had a blast!
First stop, the Elephant house.
Three elephants came into the room right after we walked in.
Caroline's favorite animal is an elephant.
She loves to just state at them.
We got to see one of them eat a snack
And about five minutes later, they all went back outside.
We went over to the Giant Panda exhibit next
After the panda exhibit, the girls wanted a snack and Elizabeth wanted to sit in the stroller
Me: "Hey girls, please smile"
And that's life lately.
Happy Thursday y'all!
