Idaho, Cousin Brenna and "Baby Taranda"

We spent last week in Idaho at Kris and Kyle's house in Idaho. Steve was interviewing for a job out there so Miranda and I went along for a little vacation. We had a great time together and Miranda loved all the action of having 5 kids around. One of her favorite parts was the stairs. She learned that you have to turn around and go down backwards and got pretty speedy at it.

Brenna calls Miranda "Baby Taranda" and they got to share a room. One night they took turns crying and waking each other up, which was very fun. Other than that and a few times grabbing toys, they got along great.

We loved playing outside, going shopping and swimming at the YMCA. Thanks Tophams for a fun time!

Children's Museum

We've been looking to get out of the house more but with the cold weather, we still mostly have to find indoor options. So, last Saturday we went up to the Children's Museum in Flint. We spent most of our time in 'The Tot Spot' where Miranda could could crawl, climb and play to her little heart's content. We spent a little time in the science-y areas too, but this was Miranda's favorite!

Our Daughter the Nerd

Here's our little nerd wearing the glasses from her toy doctor's kit. Poor girl takes after her parents. At least she's happy about it.

Her favorite thing in the kit to play with is a little bottle called 'get well' tablets.

New Years in March?

So, one of my New Years Resolutions was to create and maintain a blog. I realize it is now March and I'm just getting started, but I consider New Years Resolutions to be goals you work on throughout the year, not just the 1st week of January. Also, I have no idea what this will look like since I and somewhat computer impaired and have never blogged before. I've looked at lots of blogs, mind you...just never created one. Don't laugh too hard.
