The blog...resurrected!

Well, hello there!!

Has it really been a year and a half since I've touched this blog?!?
 Oh man, I'm such a slacker. I promise, I tried to start over time and time again...I think I've drafted 20 different blog posts over the last year trying to "catch-up" but have ultimately decided that there is no WAY I'm going to go back and blog everything.

I've decided to start over from this moment. Blogging is important to me because I don't keep a regular journal and I'm last person that is ever going to scrap blog is the only real thing that keeps record of our little family (besides facebook. I know, lame). These sweet kiddos of mine are growing up so fast, and I know that if I don't document these moments, they will be forgotten.

So, let's kick things off with our trip to Lattin's Cider Mill yesterday. the weather was absolutely beautiful so we thought some time outside was in order.  And to be perfectly honest, I will take any excuse I can get to go grab a fresh apple fritter...those things are A.MAZING.

Can you believe how much the kids have grown over the last 18 months? Jackson has lost all evidence of ever being a toddler (besides the fact that he still barely weighs 40 lbs, and that's fully clothed!)
Sassy Bianca, always good for a pose.  Feed in hand, she is ready to go see the animals!

Laney was beyond thrilled to feed the goats. She would get so close every time...

And then drop the food just out of their reach. those poor goats. She's such a tease!
Jackson and Bianca are the best of friends. They can rarely be found not playing together. I suppose that is the perk of having kids 16 months apart...of course, it takes about 5 years to start to see these perks!

We were able to meet some cousins at the Mill. we all doted over that sweet baby. I'm convinced it is nearly impossible to get a decent picture of all three of my kids together. After 57 tries, I gave up...Jackson and Bianca were bored with the photoshoot long before laney would even cooperate.
those (cute) little turds.
Me and my man. Geez, I love this guy.

I can't believe how mild the weather has been here in the North West. February is usually the time of year where we are all ripping out hair out and cursing the fact that we live in this gray, dead place. We feel lucky that the sun has been out so much, and that we can even go out and play with out freezing our behinds right off!
Here's to more sunshine...and more blogging!

I love it! I remember when we all used to be religious about posting. I want to get back into it as well. Like you this is my only "journal".

Keep posting, I am pretty sure it will rub off on me and I also love seeing what is happening with the Springer family.

Yeah Jill! So happy to see you blogging again. As a proud Nana I can never see too many photos of the kiddos.
Looks like you had a fun trip--those apple fritters really are good. Next time we visit we will have to stop there.
Enjoy your warmth and sunshine. Utah had the coldest January since 1948. Not cold and sunny--cold and smoggy. Bad, bad air.
Miss you!

Jill! So glad you're back! First of all, I'm surprised to hear about your scrap booking aversion (I'm also a VIP member of that club) with your craftiness and family background. But I'm glad it means you want to blog again! I am so jealous of those apple fritters. You guys are all so cute! Can't wait to see more!
