March Madness Road Trip

For those of you that know us you are well aware of the fact that we don't do much during March besides watch basketball. Well this year is a little different as we actually took a road trip . . . to watch the first and second rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Ryan, my dad, my brother and I got to attend the games while my mom and Alicia, my brothers sweet girlfriend, watched the little ones.

We had a blast! 9 hours (4 games) of basketball on Friday, and 2 AMAZING games on Sunday. We got to see the last second shot in the Maryland vs. Michigan State game followed by the over-time Purdue vs. Texas A & M game. To top it off my sister and her family came from the other direction to meet up with us so we had a mini family reunion!

Here is a short video I took of the last few seconds of the Purdue vs. Texas A & M overtime (I had Purdue for the win in my bracket, so I was a little excited).

On the day in between games we went to the Children's Museum and the kids had a blast.
We then walked down to the riverfront park and got some photos
Apparently Molly feels the same way about swim suits as I do. You should have seen my face :)

A fun weekend

We had a fun, full weekend over here - Saturday we went to the dog show that was in town. It was a blast, but for some strange reason the only dogs that Sean posed for pictures with were the Chinese Cresteds . . . hmmmm. His favorite was the Dalmatian (no picture) but these other two were pretty cute also.

Then on Sunday we went to the local fire station where the husband of my high school young life leader is Lutenant. It was pretty fun to see Sean in such amazement. He wanted to know what everything did, he wanted to sit everywhere, and then while he was driving the ladder truck the alarm went off and the crew came out and drove away. We all had a blast.

Oh, and lastly, Molly started crawling (more or less) this weekend! I have known it was coming since she has been getting up on her hands and knees for a while now, but has not, until now, been very good at moving forward. Now, she can pretty much get anyplace she wants to. Game on!
(I know the lighting on these videos is terrible! I will take another soon, just thought the grandparents would like to see)

Huge baby

We were over at our friends place the other night, they have a newborn. I was caught off guard by the HUGE baby that was sitting in Ryan's lap - it was Molly. She still seemed like such a little baby to me, but compared to a 7 lb newborn she looked enormous. All that said, I think it is now time that she moves to the big bathtub - and oh boy does she love it!
