Before Carlee's party we went camping at Garner State Park again but this time it was with Matt's parents and sister Angela and husband Kevin and their five kiddos.  It could not have been more fun for the kids to go camping with their cousins and grandparents.

This last minute idea to grab the swing from our back patio and set it up in a tree on our campsite was a well liked one!

And, no we didn't get much sleep camping with an almost 1 yr. old.

It was indeed chilly

I so love this picture of my boys.

We sure love this family!!!

On the last morning after breakfast right before we were about to take down camp, Carlee tripped and fell in the fire pit with the ashes and coals still hot from the night before.  That part was not fun. 

Granny and Grandpa came home with us and stayed for a week!  During that time, I got to go to Charlotte, NC with Matt for two nights.  While he was busy presenting his research at a dental conference, I was busy sleeping in, reading  my book in bed, doing my nails, watching television, exercising, going to museums....while Matt's amazing parents were busy at our house changing diapers, feeding little mouths, cleaning little hands, and warming little hearts.       
 Carlee got spoiled for her birthday with pink roller skates complete with elbow and knee pads, after sincerely thanking her grandparents for the outfit they gave her and then proceeding to tell them what she really wanted for her birthday. 

It was sad to say goodbye, always is.

After all this fun and excitement, on Carlee's actual birthday she got her first bike, complete with training wheels, that her daddy has had hidden in the garage for months.  Now we are working on getting her to like riding it.  

Also in March we were looking very forward to finding out where we will be moving to in like two months, but it came and went with NO assignment.  I am REALLY not liking this waiting game, or the fact that we  have no say in it or control over it.  We could be moving to freakin' Japan for crying out loud and we don't even know yet! Grrrrr.  I am obviously peeved, but also excited and nervous at the same time to find out.  We are going to have so much to do the next few months, hold on tight!

But first, camping at Mustang Island for Easter, yeah!

Oh, and shortly after Peter's 1st birthday! 
And then possibly two small surgeries: one for Peter's clogged tear duck and tubes for Dani's ear that isn't draining fluid, sigh.
