Happy Birthday Addilyn & Bennett!

Addi still wanted to combine her and Bennett's birthday parties this year, so we let decide the "theme".  She decided on Minnie and Mickey, which was a great idea! It is really fun celebrating together! It's hard to believe Addi is 5 and will be starting kindergarten next year and Bennett is 2! I feel like I can no longer call him my "baby". He is looking and acting so much more grown up.  Addi continues to be our silly and sometimes sassy little girl.  She always can get us to laugh and surprises us at her ability to use sarcasm at times.  Bennett is our content, laid back kid.  Yes, we are seeing his independent side come out, but he has overall has been a go with the flow kid who wants to anything and everything that Addi & Ty do.  
It was a beautiful day for the party, we couldn't have asked for better weather for mid-April!

Chicago Trip

 Over spring break, we headed to Chicago for the day with my parents.  We had planned this as a surprise trip, and had planned on surprising Addi by taking her to get an American Girl Doll (thanks mom and dad!) as an early birthday present,  and take Ty to the Lego store.

 After the doing some shopping at the Water Tower we walked a nice rainy walk to The Rainforest Cafe.  

Ty look s a little out of it... He developed a fever during the day (always happens that way) and ended up testing positive for Influenza A the next day... Sorry people of Chicago!

They didn't want to get rained on :)

 After lunch we were off to Shed's Aquarium! 

One happy girl with "Livvy" on the way home!
