Having a Happy Spring

Please, no paparazzi. :) Waiting in line for the bunnies.


Getting some Spring pictures at the Springs Preserve
She walked like this most of the day. Truly, she thinks she is a princess.

We spent the weekend before Easter enjoying the beautiful weather and taking in some happy family time. First stop, a bunny and chick petting zoo. I had such high hopes for this and was sorely disappointed. Bridget was a trooper though and waited easily in the ridiculously long line happily chatting with others around her and sipping her hot chocolate.

Next, a trip to the Springs Preserve where I knew we wouldn't be disappointed. We love it there and it's one of out go to places for pictures in the sun. Bridget had a great time seeing the flowers blooming, showing off her new springtime dress, and watching the new "Animals of South America" show.
I love the short amount of time we get Spring here in the desert. I'm glad we got out to enjoy it while it lasts.

Ready for Astronomy Night

Miss Bridget has been super interested in the moon (or Luna as she calls her) since she was tiny. When I heard about Astronomy Night, I knew we had to check it out!
The Las Vegas Astronomical Society was awesome and we got the chance to look at Jupiter (we could even see its moons!), the Orion Nebula, open star clusters, and of course, Luna. Bridget asked some great questions for a three year old (Why does it look so small and then so big? Are there any GIRL astronomers?!) and made some great observations (Mommy, the moon is upside down in here!).
I can't wait for Astronomy Day in April!

Seriously you guys, the girl can read! She picks up books around our house all the time and has no trouble. Her current faves are anything Disney Princess related and the Dance Fairies series. Umm, hello second grade chapter books! Could I be any prouder? Nope, I don't think so.

Putting those tea party skills to use

We had a picnic/tea party on our living room floor for dinner the other night. Bridget had so much fun teaching Mommy and Daddy the proper way to stir and sip.

Playing in the snow

Finally, we made it to the snow!
We got some late season snow this weekend and finally made time to take Bridget up. She has been BEGGING to go up to the mountains to see the snow for months but we just couldn't find the time (or the right clothing). Knowing that this would be out last chance, we just bit the bullet and went. Thank goodness! Bridget had a great time and can't wait until we can go again!
Sooo excited! Can you tell?

Of course, there has to be a snowball fight.

Careful. Daddy will throw back. :)

Her first snow angel.


Our dandy little snowgirl.

Our little fam.

Exploring all of the big trucks

What is it with kids and busses?  This was the highlight of her day.  

"Driving" the trash truck.

We went to the "Touch-a-Truck"event. This year was a much better success than last year. Bridget actually touched some of the trucks this year. :)
