A Springy Weekend

Whew it's been quite a weekend! Saturday Blaise woke up to find out that his training wheels had been taken off. Dominic snuck out Saturday morning (with my permission) and took them off. Blaise was upset at first but it didn't take him long before he was thankful for the push. Now it's all he wants to do. That is, until we got the swingset Tuesday morning. We will get to that at the end of the post. Here is Blaise discovering the bike surprise and trying it out.

Later that morning Tom, Zachary and I went to the Husker red-white game. Thanks Neill and Libby! It was fun getting to hang out!

Tuesday (yesterday) our new swingset came! We opted for installation for an extra $200. It only took them 3 hours to set it up when it would have taken us... much longer.

We got sand in the sandbox not long after. We were going back and forth on getting the set but I am really glad we got it. They have been spending every spare minute on it the last two days. I can watch them from the kitchen. Plus, when it gets way too hot to go to the other park we can turn the hose on here. It will be a fun summer.

Oh and our new neighborhood is beautiful in the spring. It's the season of new life and there are blooms everywhere! We are enjoying seeing what's coming up. What a beautiful season it seems after such a long winter.
