Spring!

Although we've been having kind of rainy weather lately after a nice stretch in February, it was partly sunny this afternoon and I took the kids over to the university near our house in the double stroller. Aidan rode his scooter much of the way. We were hunting for forsythia (Aidan has been enjoying pointing out these bright blooming plants when we've been driving around town), and we found a bunch! When we got home, Aidan pushed Lauren on the Push & Go. We had a fun afternoon!

I have been really sick (AGAIN) and am getting over bronchitis or pneumonia (the doctor wasn't sure which one but was going to prescribe the same antibiotic regardless, so I opted against the chest x-ray to find out which one it was). I'm not coughing as much but still have pain when I breathe and lose my breath easily. This has been one tough winter for illnesses. Luckily, I seem to have gotten the worst of it, but the kids almost always seem to have something low-grade going on. Hoping it all passes soon.

Enjoy the pictures I took today, and happy Easter!

I'm sorry you've been so sick! Glad you were able to have a good time outdoors though...

To answer your earlier question, Jia is not traveling with us for many, many reasons one of which being that she nearly died from an allergic reaction on our flight home from China...so Grandpa and Grandma will be staying with her at home!

I'm so envious of your warm weather! Aidan looks so cute riding around on his scooter, and pushing Lauren on her rider -- she's getting so big! Hope you're feeling better soon.

Happy Spring to you guys! Hope everyone is now healthy and you have had some sunny spring days. We loved seeing all of the trees and bulbs in bloom when we were there...I can only imagine how many more things are blooming now. And your yard looks great!
