For the first time in almost 2 years we had a camping trip...kinda! Johnson Ranch hoa sponsored a family camp out. On Friday night we toted all of our camping gear over to the golf course, where Scott and the boys pitched the tent along with about 30 other families. There was a hot dog dinner, crafts, night swimming, a movie, and s'mores...followed by the best part, sleeping in the tent!

Easter was fun, as always in the Sabbe house! We decorated Easter cookies as a build up to the day.

Seems every time we turn around the kids are another year older. Blake is only 5 years away from being driving age, 4 1/2 from a permit (he keeps reminding us)! For now it's all about bikes, and skate boards (thank the Lord!). This year Blake chose cash instead of presents, which came as no surprise...it also came as no surprise that he wanted to go to the store almost immediately to figure out what he was going to buy (money burns holes in that kids pockets!). Blake's intentions to save it were good, but in the end, splurging on Paper Jams won out. For dinner we went out to eat at at Red Robin. As soon as dinner was over he was read to go...but not so fast, here comes the staff, singing happy birthday. Unfortunately, the battery on the camera went dead, just as we were about to capture the shock on is face, darn! Maybe next year!

Our baby girl is growing so fast its hard to believe! At her well check she was almost 17 pounds! She has graduated to 6-9 month clothes already and size 3 diapers. My plan was to start her on solids at 6 months, but it seemed she was showing genuine interest in our food, so one day I decided that I would mash up a banana for her and see what she thought of it...she liked it! Next we tried sweet potato, that I baked and mashed up for her, she wasn't really sure about that, some days she likes it, others not so much. Then a few days later, while making chocolate chip cookies, Carson asked for a spoon full of cookie dough (I know, it's not good to eat raw dough, but we've also survived it). Ava was in her high chair. So, before I knew it, Carson was back for more. I asked him where his spoon was, and he said he was sharing with Ava...sure enough, I turn around to find her sucking vigorously on a spoon full of cookie dough! GASP!!! So, to date, bananas, check, sweet potatoes, check, chocolate chip cookie dough, check. Pretty sure we can check raw egg and chocolate off the list of foods she tolerates!
