Irish or not...I hope you wore your green today! :) We had our play group at my house today and everyone showed up in their green! Brooke wore her adorable dress that Lauren had brought down for her. The kids had so much fun playing today...

Fichter Family Visit

Two weekends ago, Lauren, Brian, and Dalton came to visit us from PA. They drove 11 hours to come see us and we had SO much fun!! It was so good to see great friends from home. We miss them so much! Brian, Lauren, and little D!

Dalton and Brooke going for our morning walk.
Dalton fell asleep at the park for a little bit. We went to the zoo and then hung out by the playground. Big day for the kiddos...they were exhausted!
After the zoo/park, we came back to our house and played. Melaina, Tom, and Candace came over too!
Family swinging...
Had to get this pic of them in the bath...they were SO cute together all weekend. They are only about 2 months apart.
Sunday at the park...Lauren and Dalton going down the slide!

Brooke wanting to go head first down the slide...she seriously has NO FEAR!

Big Irish festival going on downtown....you can see all the people sitting on the bridge. I love this bridge.
Brooke running around at the park during the festival!

Dalton and Brooke playing football.
They left shortly after this picture and we were SO sad. It was such a fun weekend!! Thanks again for coming down. We love you guys.

Snow in South Carolina?!!

On Sunday, March 1st, we got about 4 inches of snow here! It was so much fun to see snow again and to see how crazy it was around here. Pretty much EVERYTHING shut down, no kidding. No plows, no salt...just drive at your own risk. Luckily it has pretty much all melted and it supposed to be back up to high 60's this weekend! Brooke loved being out in the cold. She is so much like Scott in that way, NOT me. She loves when the wind hits her face... Walking in the snow in her "pink puff" snowsuit.
Trying to figure out what all of this is!
I just wanted to add this one in here...this was after our play group the other day and I just couldn't resist.

Play Group

Back in January I met my neighbors daughter, Julie, who has recently moved back to Greenville and lives nearby. Julie is my age and has a son, Thomas, who is about 3 weeks younger than Brooke. Julie and I decided to have a play date one afternoon and I invited Candace and she invited her friend, Carrie. Ever since January, every 2 weeks we all get together at a different persons house. It is so much fun and the kids are between the ages of 11 months and 16 months. I'm getting to know these girls better and better and they are so great. Enjoy some pics of our last playgroup at Julie's house. Thomas is in the red, Brooke, Melaina, and Luke...so cute!
Cutie pie Luke..showing those chompers!

Brooke loved riding the duck!
