Swimming Lessons!

We decided it was time to start Dominic up in swimming lessons this year to get ready for all the summer fun we have at the pool. We did some lessons last year but they were parent involved so this time it was much different as he was by himself with the instructor! You might remember when Elena took swimming lessons a couple years ago -- she was not a happy camper the first week. But then she finally warmed up and loved it! Well the same thing happened with Dom - he literally screamed the entire first class! Ugh! :( But then he kept doing better and better each time! This was one of the first classes when he still wasn't too sure about it but was finally not crying!
The pics aren't that great because I had to stay away and was peeking through a window! So stressful to see your baby not be 100% comfortable in any situation!
So proud of him for doing so much better each time!!
Most days grandma takes him to swim, but every so often I get to sneak away and watch him too!
The goggles crack me up! But he finally got used to them and does so much better with them on!
He's been going for about 2 months now and check him out now!!!!!! Amazing! Now he begs to go to swimming lessons!
 So proud of my little swimmer!
Bring on the pool this summer!!!


Easter {2015}

This year I did something for Easter I have been wanting to do since Dominic was born...buy matching Easter baskets with their names on them! :) I know this seems probably very silly to some but for some reason I have always loved how they looked and have always wanted them. They turned out adorable and I love them! :) He he he.  
Elena's basket -
Dom's basket -
They were so excited!
and man I was trying to get this cute shot and I totally had my camera setting wrong and focused on the wrong thing. But I still love this pic cause you can totally see Dominic's expression of surprise!
My little bunnies!
Then we got dressed and headed over to my parent's house - where they got a few more Easter goodies!
She was beyond pumped that she got an iTunes gift card!
Then it was time to dye some eggs - it was so windy and chilly outside that we opted to do it inside.
Dom was so into it!
Then we ate some lunch and headed outside to so some hunting!
Got to give a shoutout to my amazing hubby who was fixing my parent's fence that had gotten blown down from a storm the other night!
I wish it wouldn't have been so cold out, I didn't even get a family picture or one with my parents in it! Bummer! But the kids still had a blast! :)

 Happy Easter 2015!


Happy Birthday Grandpa!!

March 29th is a big day around here...it's my Dad's birthday, Elena's 1/2 birthday and the day I started my blog (6 years ago!!) We had a fun time celebrating. :)
My Dad requested this amazingly delicious chocolate ganache cake that I got him a couple of years ago. Hello! You don't have to ask me twice!! :)
"Happy Birthday To You...."
Just look at this ridiculous deliciousness!
Mmm mmm yummy!
Happy Birthday Dad (and Grandpa!) We love you!!
  Look at how much has changed since my first blog post! So glad I have recorded so many of our family's memories on here!! :)
