Little Adventures-The weekend

I love all the little adventures my family and I have every week. This weekend was no exception.

Roman got a new play gym, I guess that is what you would call it. It is a little pirate ship with a steering wheel, a rock climbing wall, a slide, and a telescope.  Everyday we have been out climbing, sliding, steering, and taking pictures (because that is what telescopes do...duh!) I love that the first thing Roman wants to do is go outside...rain or shine. So many of my childhood memories happened out in the fresh air, and that is what I want for my children as well.



Valentine's Day was this past Tuesday and Malachi and I had to postpone our Valentine's celebration till Saturday. Malachi works evenings so we couldn't go out that day, although he did have a delicious Valentine's lunch waiting for me when I got home from MOP's. We also exchanged gifts (we gave ourselves a challenge to only spend five dollars on each other...I got Bridget Jone's Diary and he got a plant). So our date night (first date night in 3 1/2 months!!!!) happened Saturday evening after this kids were put to bed. My sister-in-law came over and we went out to Tradewind's restaurant. Malachi and I have been going there for Valentine's day for five years now. And we only go once a year to make it really special. It is a little hole in the wall restaurant that serves amazing Italian food. We were so excited! We had looked at their menu earlier that day and picked out what we were going to have. When we arrived Malachi went ahead and ordered for us. Our appetizer was amazing and then came the pizza. We were going to get a spicy pizza with hot capricola sausage, but the pizza that was placed in front of us was a vegetable pizza with artichokes, mushrooms, green peppers, and black olives. You may be salivating and say "well...what is wrong with that?" Considering the only thing I liked on that pizza was green peppers it was sort of a problem. Turns our Malachi ordered the wrong pizza (they all have such fancy names) and we got a pizza only he would like. I was willing to scrape everything off I didn't like and eat it that way, but my husband, being the great man that he is, put that pizza in a box and ordered a pizza I would like. So when we came home that night, we came home with one and a half pizzas. Malachi has been eating pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner the last few days! But all in all it was a wonderful date. We came home and watched Bridget Jone's Diary and ate cannollis.

She is such a happy baby!


See his airplane flying?


Sunday evening we went over to one of Malachi's sister's house for Mexican night. It was fun...the cousins got to play and we adults got to chow down on tons of delicious food.

Has it really been 6 months????

So I seem to like to not update for 6 months and then start blogging again. It really doesn't feel like it has been 6 months. Time goes by way too fast. It is so precious and we don't even realize it. So many times we want to fast forward and get to something we are looking forward to and then we miss all the beautiful little things that happen each and everyday. Everyday is beautiful and we need to soak it all in because every minute that passes by is a minute we will never have again.
So much has happened to our family in the past 6 months! Roman turned two, he went trick or treating for the first time, and we welcomed our beautiful baby girl, Adelai, into the world. The past 3 1/2 months with her in our lives has been wonderful. She is the perfect addition to our little family. Roman is wonderful big brother and she already adores him. I can't wait to watch them grow up together. My everyday life is so busy but so wonderful. They constantly keep me on my toes!
God has blessed me so richly and I thank Him for each and every day he gives me!
Here are a few pictures from the last 6 months
