After seeing this, I decided to move purchasing a sandbox, to the top of our to do list this weekend.

We have had some beautiful weather in Georgia this past week. We have ended up in the 70s nearly every day this week. We have really enjoyed getting to spend some time outside again. We have gotten in the habit of going out there about every afternoon after Mikayla's nap before I have to start dinner. Gavin also seems to really enjoy the outdoors.
We put Gavin in the swing for the first time - he absolutely loved it! He just giggled and smiled the whole time. Mikayla was happy to share her swing with her little brother and swing on the big girl swing.
That night after we had dinner, Mikayla and I went up stairs for a shower. While I was getting ready, Mikayla was playing quietly in her room. This is what I saw when I went in to get her for her bath. She told me she was having a picnic with all of her friends. She has quite an imagination!!

Since I haven't had time to blog much the past couple of days, I will direct you to my sister Emily's blog. She has some cute photos of the kids and also a video of Gavin playing. It is so cute!! (I may be a little biased, though)

Well, one of my goals for 2008 was to lose the rest of my baby weight that I had gained from BOTH of my babies. I am hoping to get back down to what I weighed when Jeremy and I got married. I was having a harder time after this pregnancy than I did with Mikayla, so I decided to join Weight Watchers to help me out a little. They have a great program for nursing moms, so I know that I am doing something for myself without sacrificing my little guy's food. I have had a little bit of a hard time missing out on my sweets, so I am always on the lookout for yummy, low cal snacks. This snack is one of my new faves. It is a Quaker Chocolate and Peanut Butter Rice Cake with 1 T. marshmallow creme, 1/2 tsp. mini chocolate chips, and 1/2 tsp. Peanut butter chips. The recipe actually called for peanuts instead of the PB chips, but I am not much of a peanut fan. It is very yummy and completely saves me when I am craving a Reese's cup.
