Is it really you Spring?

Monday, March 30, 2009

I just don't understand this weather! Last week we were having 80 degree days and by the weekend we were in a blizzard with 7-9 inches of snow. Today most of the snow is gone and melted and it is a nice Spring day with a high of 66 degrees. It is no wonder that everyone is sick and doesn't feel good. We can't decide if it is Spring or Winter.

With all of the winter weather this weekend we didn't get out much at all. The weekend was spent mostly catching up on odds and ends around the house, watching movies, and scrapping. I actually did not leave the house from the time I got home on Friday after work until I dropped Riley off this morning to come to work! Needless to say I was feeling a little bit stir crazy. It didn't help that Riley is fighting a runny nose and teething at the same time. Poor guy just wasn't very happy. He did get to catch up on a lot of sleep and hopefullly he will be able to kick this little bug soon.

This weekend was the perfect opportunity to make pancakes for breakfast with the new molds I bought for Riley. Aren't these just the best?
Riley loved eating pancakes for the first time and actually ate a whole monkey pancake himself. I just love to see his reactions to new things! He is getting so big and this age is so much fun.
Hope everyone is doing well and stayed warm this past weekend. Here is hoping to a much warmer week!

Spring Break 2009

Thursday, March 19, 2009

Well we are back and I can't say that we are much more rested than when we left. Our trip to Kansas City was a lot of fun and we definitely did our fair share of shopping and sight seeing. We started our trip with a visit to the Kansas City Zoo. Danny and I both thought the zoo was really pretty and had a lot of great activities for the kids....only thing is that there were not really a whole lot of animals. It made us both appreciate what a great zoo we have in our own backyard. The Sedgwick Co. Zoo animals are very interactive and there is more than just one of each. What they lacked in animals they made up for in walking! Everything was really spread out and I can definitely say that I was worn out after spending the day walking around the zoo.

Other than our trip to the zoo we did a lot of shopping on the Plaza, The Legends, and of course we had to eat at our favorite restauraunt....Buca di Beppo! This has become a tradition for us over the past couple of years and each time we order the same thing, "Chicken Gloriouso" which you cannot find on the menu anymore. But if you are really lucky there is still a cook in the kitchen that remembers how to make it! Riley even got to visit Cablea's and TRex Cafe. Our trip was fast and we had a great time, but now it is back to the real world. Poor Danny has to go back to work tomorrow while Riley and I get to play for just one more day. I guess Danny can just look at our pictures to remember what a great time we all had. We can't wait to go back again and maybe next time Hannah will be able to join us!

Well we have decided to try this blog as a way to keep all of our family happenings in the loop with everyone. As a fan of reading other blogs I have always been amazed at some of the great stories and interesting facts you learn about people you already know.

So, as part of my Lenten journey, I wanted to try and do better at keeping in touch with family and friends. Hopefully this will help accomplish the tremendous feat of trying to let everyone know just what is going on in the Wilbert household.

Riley is growing so fast! I can't believe that in two months he will already be a year old. I keep asking myself where did the time go? He has officially cut one tooth and is in the painful process of cutting a couple of others. I do hope that this goes kills me to see him in such pain. He is such a happy, fun loving, little boy. I know he is going to make a great big brother!

We found out a couple of weeks ago that we are going to be adding a little girl to our family. Danny is so excited to have a little girl to spoil. I am glad that we have one of each and now the pressure is off. =)

As for us, we are just trying to get things ready for the new baby and Riley's 1st birthday. We decided to take a little getaway trip to Kansas City for Spring Break. It might be our last trip before the baby arrives and we have even more stuff to pack! It is amazing to both of us just how much stuff they need for how small they are. Danny is doing great at work and keeping busy. I am trying to get through this school year and make it through the summer. I am hoping that it won't get too hot until after July 18th.

We hope you are all doing well and that we get to see you soon.
