Welcome Spring!

Marilyn would like to announce that Spring is HERE!!! This is her new excited face, and she was very excited to be at the White River Garden Conservatory on Sunday with Aunt Kate, Uncle Brett and Mommy. The weather was so wonderful; we just could not stay inside!

Running and spinning in circles

Ahh, the great outdoors

Cheesing it up in her sunglasses

Loving on her favorite Aunt Kate

Special times with Uncle Brett

Marilyn is getting ready for Easter and is becoming acquainted with all the bunnies she can find, including this stone one. We hope you are loving this warm weather as much as we are.

Ready for the Beach!

Just six short weeks from today we are headed to the sunny beaches of Seaside, Florida! In preparation for the trip, Marilyn has been insisting on wearing her swimsuit and flip flops... or rather I just couldn't resist the urge for her to try them on!

So big and tall!

Here she is preparing to pack her bag.

Playing the drum!

Ready to go... the weeks will surely fly by until we see Grandma Jane and Grandpa Don!

Bathtime with Dad

Last night Marilyn was not feeling well so she slept in and hung out with dad at home instead of going to the sitter. After waking up she found herself needing to take a bath. She was having so much fun she almost had to get back in.
She loves her Balls.

Things started to get a little Crazy!!!

Time to spash!!!!

Just look at all those toys...

Here she is with her cape on still holding onto that ball. Who knew bathtime was so much fun!!!

What a Beautiful Day!

We spent the evening enjoying the beautiful warm weather. Marilyn LOVES her slide, and this year she is big enough to handle it on her own.

She has a blast playing on the top platform and steering the wheel.

She goes down the slide just like she goes down the stairs... turn around and go down on your belly. Apparently that has sunk in pretty deep.

A nice lady-like landing.

Marilyn and Daddy are getting excited about warm weather fun!

Today is Marilyn's 18 month birthday! I just can't believe how quickly the time has passed. As you can see she is getting to be quite the big girl. Here are some pictures Kate snapped during her time with Marilyn this past Tuesday.

We LOVE Uncle BRETT!!!

Happy 26th Birthday Uncle Brett!!! Brett celebrated his birthday on Saturday, and we can't help but continue to wish him Happy Days!! Here are some adorable pics of Marilyn from Uncle Brett from the past few weeks.

Isn't that smile precious!!! Of course, it's because she is looking at her favorite Uncle Brett behind the camera.

Aunt Kate snapped a cute one!

Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day!

Marilyn spent the night on Valentine's Day with Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Kate & Uncle Brett. She was also treated that night to a visit with Great Grandpa & Grandma Brenton. Here are few Brett captured from their evening. Hunter and I were out enjoying an actual date night!

Marilyn was spoiled by Grandma with a Valentine's Day treat of a new laptop. It is adorable and she loves the singing button!

Brown Bear with Aunt Kate

This is Marilyn on the phone. She puts her hand up to her ear and talks. She is quite interactive with her hand phone and has mastered the "hi" and "bye".
