Spring Fever!!

T & R before little model below!! (I found this little dress at consigment for about $5, and it was new!! I love consigment!)

Enjoying the backyard!! Fenced in is nice!

practicing on the new wheels!

A trip to build a bear resulted in 'Rainbow the Owl' and 'Toby the bear'. Rachel had never been to Build a Bear but had played games on their website and Taylor had been once when he was almost 3. They loved it! Rachel got some birthday money and she had her choice of what to do with it and that is what she wanted.

Rachel turned 4.....Happy Birthday baby girl!!

..... and Taylor won 1st place in the science fair poster contest for kindergarten!!
