We love you Uncle Dave...

It feels like a lifetime since my last post, and in some ways it really has been.
On Tuesday, March 30th, we lost my Uncle Dave. He was a fantastically happy man, quick with a smile and laugh. He will forever be ensconced in my memory as a man of vivid imagination (I still remember the magic water from the sap of a special tree), tireless energy and a huge and generous heart. Please keep our family in your prayers, especially my Aunt Jeanie, Cousins Lisa and Jason and his grandchildren Josh, Taylor and little Noah.

I’ve had to look back at my pictures to remember what life has transpired in the last month and a half…

I FINALLY got to meet the Matt to our Nat.

My dear high school friends, Brooke, Jill and Natalie, all came over (+families) for a yummy dinner (several) weeks ago.

We had such a ball! Miss Haley got to play with Miss Reilly and we all got to grill Matt, Natalie’s newish boyfriend. They are just adorable together and it was so much fun to catch up with everyone!

Our Mommies and Babes playgroup is going strong, we have our 4th group tomorrow. The kids are just adorable, and we have such a great time together. It really is a great time for us mommies to chat about everything going on in our lives. I love it!

Dear little Miss Peyton turned 1 last month and we were thrilled to attend her birthday party.

As with everything the Patricios do, the party was perfect. All pinks and oranges and gorgeous weather! Miss Haley had such a ball with all the other little ones!

My garden finally went in and we got out Miss Haley’s gardening tools so she could help (thank you grandma Conway)! We are so looking forward to fresh tomatoes, eggplant, peppers and squash!

Our alma mater, St. Marys, went to the big basketball conference this year. We had the Prosperis, Leah’s mom Chris and my parents over to watch the (disappointing) game last Friday. Cal and Haley were so adorable in their red and blue. My mom made her out of this world enchiladas and it was the perfect Friday night (minus the Gael’s loss).

The Hudsons came to visit last Saturday and we had such fun catching up. Their daughter, Miss Allison, is getting so big and is just adorable! Cal lucked out with two cuties in his nighttime bath!

Sunday we packed the kids up and headed to the park. It was Miss Haley’s first trip to a park and she loved it, especially the slide!

Along with all our fun things, we had our first round of flu. We’ve taken to calling our little one Typhoid Haley because she seems to infect EVERYONE in quick succession.

Here are a few more Haley loving her pup pics...

We are looking forward to a busy Easter weekend! Christopher will be confirmed on Saturday night and we have a big Easter celebration at my parent’s on Sunday. The Comstocks are coming down tomorrow and are in for a surprise. They haven’t seen Haley since she started walking!

Love and Happy Easter Wishes to All!
