I have lots more pictures from March, so I'll try to only choose a few to share.
Joe had a business trip so I spent the week of St. Patty's Day visiting my parents. We tried introducing Rosemary to the leprechaun, but she wouldn't go anywhere near him. We also took her to lunch. The tutu she's wearing is the one I made at the Moms Night In tutu party!
When we got back in town, the weather was so beautiful that we decided to spend a day at the beach with Rosemary's friend's Lukas and Noah.
The next day, my parents came into town so we could celebrate Easter a little early. The first thing we did was make an appointment for my mom and I to take Rosemary to get her 2-year pictures taken (at 27 months). She was so good that she got to ride the carousel!
The next day, my in-laws came to help us celebrate our early Easter and we dyed Easter eggs. It was Rosemary's first time and she LOVED it!
You're probably seeing a lot of this face. It's her "smile for the camera" face.
My mom made this adorable bunny cake!
On Saturday the weather was BEAUTIFUL so all the ladies (me, Rosemary, my mom, and my MIL) packed up the car and headed to the beach. We ended up at the causeway, but that's close enough! Rosemary knows that it's very important to apply lots of sunscreen.
We also tried to stay in the shade.
Here are both grandmas and Rosemary.
While we were enjoying the nice weather, the men were working hard. My parent's neighbor actually gave them their old wooden playset that their own daughter had outgrown! My dad single-handedly took apart almost every single board, brought it to their house, packed it in a U-Haul, hauled it the four hours to our house, and started putting it back together in our backyard. On Saturday he finally had some help from Joe and my father-in-law and together they were able to get the entire thing put together in no time.
When we came back from the beach, this is what we saw.
Here's the proud grandpa, and my hero of the month, pushing his little girl on the swing.
We ended up switching the bars with a bucket swing. It was a good decision. We've had the bucket swing for almost a year but never had the time to build a frame for it. I'd say this playset is a little more impressive than a simple frame for a swing! And Rosemary obviously loves it. It's almost impossible to get her off. And it has this effect, which I LOVE:
The day my parents left I threw a little "baby sprinkle" for a friend of mine who is having her second baby. Due to a last minute change of plans because of the chance of rain, I hosted it at my house. I've been looking for an opportunity to make a diaper cake so I decided to give it a shot and I was pretty happy with the way it came out!
I was nervous about having that many kids over at once, but thanks to the swingset it was a success!
That's about all I can remember for now. I've also been blogging for a couple hours so I think I need a break.
