We have had a good winter here in KC this season, though we had hoped for more snow! We celebrated Quinn's 4th Birthday on Saturday January 7th with an "all boys" party at the Fire Station in Mission, Kansas.
The party was really fun and it started with a tour of the station given by the firefighters who live there. They were really nice and also explained several important safety related things to the kids (for example how and why to call 9-1-1). After the tour, we went to a Mexican restaurant next door for food, cookie cake and presents.
Quinn was really excited about his birthday especially because he got lots of LEGOS. Quinn really loves LEGOS and he is really good at following the directions step-by-step to assemble really complex things.
Here is Quinn making a really cool firetruck that Papa Craig and Grandma Kim got for him.
Olivia and Quinn have been having a blast each Monday evening 'practicing' with the Little Penguins hockey team at the Carriage Club where we belong. This year's group of Little Penguins is really large which means we will have a great crop of hockey players coming up with our little ones too!
Jason and I both got skates and we've been taking them to the outdoor rink once a week or so this season during open ice time to practice our skating skills. It's neat to see them improve each and every week. Of course, the better they get at skating, the more fun they have with it (and so do mom and dad!).
Here's a picture of our Penguins all geared up and ready for action!
Each year at this time, though the weather might be dull and gloomy, I'm reminded why I do like the KC weather - because we generally do have four distinct seasons. Spring is just a stones through away at this point and with it comes baseball (go Royals!).
Though we don't have season tickets this year, we will be going out to several games. Here's a snap from last season when the person next to us caught a foul ball then gave it to us.
Signing off for now. Stay warm and snuggley and we'll try to do the same!
