It's been quite an epic February week in the mountains. The weather has been crazy warm (in the 60's) all week and it has been wonderful to go outside and enjoy it. Last weekend we basically lived outdoors and the twins had the best time.
I went to the Biltmore twice to walk. The first time I packed up the boys by myself and we walked. It was the first time I got everyone out the door without help, so that felt very empowering. I'll tell you though... getting TWO babies in car seats is no joke.
The Hubs and I went together over the weekend too. We walked for hours outside.
Hunter and Jackson slept nearly the entire time, which was wonderful.
We even brought their playmat outside at our house to enjoy the warmth.
They were both so happy to be outside and kept looking up at the sky. It was pretty cute.
I also went to walk with the boys at a couple other local parks and got in two outdoor runs by myself. I should have kept track of my weekly miles because I've been on the move.
I feel so much better when I spend time outdoors and this week totally spoiled me! I am counting down the days until spring.
One sad thing that happened was the boys outgrew being in their stroller bassinet together. When they first came home I could easily fit them both in this with big swaddles on and I was surprised when I tried to put them in the other day how much they had grown. Our stroller luckily will fit two of these bassinets and our neighbor is letting us borrow a second one. I almost cried when I realized how much they had grown though!
So, in a nutshell, we basically wore ourselves out enjoying the weather this week and getting lots of walks in.
This is how the boys watched the Superbowl pregame show - haha!
And Makena wants you guys to know we haven't forgotten about her. She's watching over the babes and enjoying the sunshine too.
Looks like the weather today will be turning back to winter. It will be nice to slow down a bit again after running around all week but I'm not looking forward to the cold returning.
On a more positive note though, My Dad is here to visit (I need to get a photo of him and babes!) so I'm looking forward to spending time with him and having an extra set of hands to help with the babies. He's even going to watch them for us while the Hubs and I go to dinner. I can't wait!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! I have two new recipes to share with y'all next week. See you then.

Love you to read the weekly happenings. I also played outside raking leaves and uncovering daffodils coming up.
Do the boys like tummy time?
Hope you have a great weekend.

You are so right--the boys are growing fast, and they are just getting cuter and cuter! It looks like you had a nice time being spoiled by the brief spring weather teaser and that Hunter and Jackson enjoyed it just as much as you did!

They sure have grown. Don't remember if I told you Julie that I had a in home daycare when we lived in black mountain. Well one of my former babies turns 15 this month. That is how fast they grow. We have been in Memphis 7 years now. Enjoy the weather. It was in 70s here for several days and things started blooming. Was 22 this morning going to 37. But Spring will be back. Love that you are sharing the boys with us. Blessings.
Hi Julie: I haven't been commenting as much but want you to know how much I enjoy seeing your boys growing and doing well!! Such a blessing for you and the Hubs! And Makenna, as always, is a precious girl and I'm so glad she is bonding well with the boys! Have a great weekend with your Dad and family!

Congrats on getting everyone out the door on your own! That's an awesome accomplishment. Enjoy time with your dad and dinner with the Hubs this weekend Julie!
They are so cute! They really have grown when you put them in the bassinet like that! Does your stroller hook car seats in with it? We used that with ours but the bassinets look so nice. Wahoo to nice neighbors to let you borrow the other! We had some nice weather up here and I am now counting down for sure when we will have it for good. I loved letting the kids go outside and seeing what fun they had. Their imaginations are great and their ages are pretty great, too. Nolan is at the age he plays with Annabelle and will follow her to see what she's up to and do it, too. It's cute. Have a wonderful weekend with your dad!!
