Easter Egg Hunt

I'm always 6 months behind. This was at Ben and Jen's last spring, 2013:

Pictures from February 2013

I barely remember how cold it was last winter, but here is proof!

Here are some pictures of Cecilia and Phillip. She's always been very protective of him and loves to play with him. This was only a little over 6 months ago - I can't believe how much Phillip has changed.

Typical winter clothes for a very fashionable little girl:

Cancun, February 2013

In February we took a fantastic vacation to Cancun with New York Grandma, and Ben and Jen and family. It was the perfect thing to get away from the cold for a while!

Unfortunately my phone died, so no videos, but plenty of pictures can be found here.

Phillip was less than 6 months old at the time! This is one of my favorite pictures of him during the vacation:

I think you can make a good argument that he had a good time as well...

We stayed at a fancy all-inclusive resort with 5 different pools, 3-4 different buffets/restaurants, ocean beach, and countless activities. We probably could have stayed there the whole week, but we made some excursions outside of the resort. One was to the Mayan ruins just south of us, where we also went to the beach:

We also made trips to 2 different eco parks, Xcaret and Xel-ha. It was perfect for the boys to snorkel/swim, ride zip lines, etc, and Cecilia got to do quite a lot too.

Phillip couldn't even crawl yet at this point, and this was his first long-term exposure to sun/sand, and I think he enjoyed it. I couldn't resist highlighting some great pictures of him playing in the sand:

All in all, this was a fantastic trip!

Rumbly Slide

I took this today. Grandma and grandpa are here so I got to take Cecilia to the playground by herself for a change.
