April Goals

There are several recipes that I want to try, so I've decided it will be my goal in April to try one of them each week. I'm hoping to make yogurt, English Muffins, onion powder, and homemade deodorant. I'm also planning on using my crock pot once or twice a week, including a few new recipes I've found. I'll try to share how they turned out! I have a few other projects I'd like to work on in April as well, but for now, I'm thinking it might be better to keep my goals on the smaller side, so I feel accomplished, rather than frustrated that I don't get everything done that I wanted to!

Another day at the beach!

We spent Saturday at a cute little town - we had lunch, looked in the shops, and ended our afternoon by going to the beach!

I think this was Benjamin's first time actually on the beach - he enjoyed walking by the water and finding rocks!

Out and about

Friday was such a lovely day that we decided to get out for a bit!
We stopped at Wendy's for a Frosty and took it down to the beach!

Some ducks came to see what we had - too bad we hadn't brought some bread for them!

We are loving our new-to-us double stroller! It was my first time buying something off of Craigslist, and I'm happy with the experience!

My favorite things about this stroller is that it folds up really small for a double stroller, and even though it's a side-by-side, it still fits nicely through doorways.

Homemade Crackers

I've been wanting to try making homemade crackers for a while, and with both kids sleeping the other day, I finally got a chance to do it! They turned out pretty good, although I do need to play with the cooking temperature/time a little bit! I'll definitely be making these again!

One Month!

I know I'm biased, but isn't she just beautiful? =)

Benjamin is having fun with his little sister! He is getting quite interested in her and loves to go up to her and touch her and cuddle with her!

So precious!!

A fun gift

We have received so many wonderful gifts for Joanna, and I thought I'd share this one, because I thought it was such a sweet and great idea! I loved the pink and blue gifts, and thought it was so sweet of the giver to give a fun gift to Benjamin! What a blessing!


Just three weeks old, but already she seems to be getting big!
