Not sure if you have taken a moment to watch Doc McStuffins but Gracie loves it. She likes me to call her Doc McGracie when she is at work. She now has her own book of diagnosis with pictures. Below you will see where she has decided to have her own clinic, her patients, and I forgot to capture the waiting room but I will try next time.

This little man of mine is growing and changing all the time. Since he was 2 weeks old we wanted to move. He wanted to crawl, walk, run, talk, and now even ride a bike like his big sissy. The moment Gracie jumped of he jumped on. He loves just moving the handles back and forth but sometimes mommy will push him on the side walk and he thinks that is so awesome as he makes voom voom sounds and collects rocks to put in the front basket. What a boy!

Since junior high I have been friends with Molly. And, I have been given a unique opportunity to spend some quality time in Cincinnati and time to catch up with friends. We have not lacked in play dates since we have been here, quite the opposite we have been a very busy little family. Thankfully we have spent a lot of time with Molly and her two kids Pearl and Grant who are both very close in age with my two kids. They also seem to get a long very well and love playing together which has made for some nice days followed by naps at Molly's house where we the mommies get to veg out. To say I have loved this time is an understatement. It has been so much fun!
this is not pearl
gracie can make friends anywhere she goes
nolan is more interested in climbing
up the slide then going down it.
enjoying the sunny ride after the park
pearl and gracie's silly faces during there outdoor lunch
nolan loves the lawn mower
and the pink 4 wheeler.
loves cutting the grass
gracie's new favorite thing is minnie mouse
Nolan finally got back into the swinging
and would stay in this swing all day if he could.

Another great benefit to my parent's house is the bike trail that is literally out their door. We daily go for a walk, or I jog while Gracie ride her bike. And she can be pretty fast, I often have to ask her to slow down as she is always wanting to race and that is a little hard when pushing Nolan in the jogger.

As April is known for the raining days we have taken to the close by Rec Center the have indoor swing sets and trampolines. On one of our first visits since being here this time around Nolan was not very happy about the swing at all and wanted out right away. To tell you the truth I was a little worried that he would have a fear for heights like someone else in the family and Gracie and I would be the ones riding all the roller coasters together.
Gracie loves and it
wants to keep going higher
loves taking on all the climbing walls
nolan right behind her wanting to do the same
glade she had some one to spot here
now if only I can get Nolan to say belay on
no slide was out of his league
check nolan out in his tie shirt hanging with all the ladies
I think he is trying to get them to bake him a cake;)

When it comes to teams we always support the team Daddy coachs. But there are a few teams that we don't share our love for and we have both taken our time to tell the kids who we love. Troy loves the Royals and I am a Reds fan. I love Ohio State and Troy loves K-State. Then there are a few teams I have loyalty to before choosing another. Example I am not a die hard Bengals fan at all but I would never root for the Brown's just can't do it and I hate the Yankee's, sorry. Just team stuff. I have taught Gracie some of the OSU chants and Troy is free to do the same but Gracie picked it up fast and knows how much it drives daddy crazy so she loves to sing it. All this to say I got a picture of Nolan Sporting a Reds hat and I had to capture it because I was so proud to see him wearing it.
this one just looks like troy stance.
