The birthday girl with the Fancy Fairy
Tiaras, tutus, jewels and more filled the park for the Fancy Natasha Soiree (that's a fancy word for party).  For those not familiar it was based on the Fancy Nancy books.  Everyone had a magnificent time (that means very good).

The Big 5!!

Happy Birthday to our sweet baby girl!  We can't believe you are 5 years old.  You are the most caring, intelligent, beautiful and thoughtful girl we know.  We love your spunkiness, creativity and your desire to sing an dance.  We are so blessed that you belong to us. You are not only the best big sister to Nikolaus, but you are a great older cousin to Brooks and Evvie.

  Brooks and Auntie Lizzy joined us at
California Adventure for Natasha's birthday.

 Painting the side walk
 It was also share day.  She shared her new
necklace that she bought with her own money
 at the Disney Store. 
Here is to five more years, and five more after that, and five more after that and so on.  We love you with all our hearts.  Now let's celebrate with a Fancy party!

Pools, Trains, Chompers and More

 March proved to be a busier month for us. 
We did have some downtime... my little techie family

 Love this boy!
 Kids testing out Hershey's new pool. 
With the warm weather approaching,
Hershey needed something to help
him cool off.  It is kid approved too.
 Hershey didn't get much time in the pool. 
Nikolaus is becoming a little fish like his sister.
 Pony ride at Zoomars for Noe's 5th Birthday

 Besties riding the train... choo choo
Sweet friends (Noe, Tasha and Anabelle)

 Nik's first dentist appointment... He did awesome!
 "Me try."

Natasha's second dentist appointment...
She loved it and wants to go everyday.
Yes, she dressed herself.  Yes, she is a free spirit.
And yes, I pick my battles.
 Running on the stones by the Koi Pond at
Fashion Island... makes me nervous each time. 
 It's very shallow, but I don't want to be that
parent that needs to fish their kids out of the water.
We were lucky that day.
My littles and I having a fun day out while daddy was in Vegas.
 Transportation Parade at school.
 He is getting bigger and so is Natasha. 
Birthday month... the big 5!
