Month In Photos: March 2014

March 2014 was a month jam-packed with birthday parties and small ways to make memories. The girls had quite a bit of time off with conferences and Spring Break, so it was a nice blend of relax time at home and activity when boredom struck. Month In Photos: March 2014

We attended our city’s children’s expo where the twins got to meet, hug and follow Rainbow Dash around like little fan girls. Instead of an autograph book {ponies can’t sign, obviously} the girls instead brought their own much-loved stuffies to represent their huge interest. ‘I love you, look, I have you!!’ – it was so sweet to watch. 

Yet my lack of patience this day declared that the lines were far too long, for some of the events at the expo. So I did what any reasoning Mother would do – I bribed. Yep, these sparkly new hats you see in a couple photos are the result of a trade I made with the girls. We don’t wait in bounce house lines and you get a hat! Fair trade, I’d say!

In March, the twins took another month of swimming lessons. I could probably stuff another one in there before summer starts, yet the next few months schedule is already insane. So that’s not going to happen and instead I’ll celebrate that we got through 2 levels in the last couple of months. 

Each year the month of March always bring cookie craze, for girl guides. This year is the first time the twins are sparks {the youngest level in guides}, so they too are selling cookies for their troop. Oh hey – I have a trunkful guys, let me know if you want cookies!

As much as I’d like to say that the official mark of Spring brought glorious seasonal-like weather, that would be a lie. While the temps haven’t been too bad {meaning, still too cold for my liking}, more snow has fallen. Actually, we’ve been totally dumped on again. While this has caused a few snarls and growls, you gotta know it has to end soon. I’m holding onto that, and this fact is  what’s getting me through the days. Alright, that and making copious amounts of cookies. I win, March. 

So, how was your March 2014?

  1. Keeping track of your life by digital media is amazing. I wish we would had more digital options for capturing memories when our kids were growing up. Soon we’ll have grandkids and I won’t miss a moment!

  2. It sounds like you had the perfect month, a great mixture of relaxation and fun! That expo sounds fun, and don’t worry, you’re not the only mom who bribes their kids to avoid long lines! LOL!!

  3. What a great idea to do a once a month post. This would really help me keep on track of getting my photos into a book at the end of the year.

  4. What adorable photos and great memories to treasure! Sounds like a great month 😉 This is such a fun way to preserve memories, I love it!

  8. I agree is should never snow in March, especially once we have passed the official 1st day of spring mark! Oh well at least I know that when it does snow in March here, it doesn’t stick around. I am so ready for real spring to start! as in WARM weather and flowers!

  9. Adorable girls! I can see why you had a busy March. We had an especially cold month of March, but at least everyone stayed healthy.. Feels like we are still in February. Tomorrow we are going to be i n the 60’s though. Can’t remember when we last saw that. All the snow will FINALLY melt!

  10. Our March has been busy with my newborn and my oldest turning 8. But overall it was fun. Love the pic y’all got with Rainbow Dash

  11. I love what your doing, such a lovely idea of making a photo album month by month with pictures a lifetime keepsake. It looks like you had a a very busy but fun March, me I did nothing I’m such a boring person lol

  12. Our March was great and most of our pics were taken while on vacation! Love your pics! Especially “Bucket head” – how cute!

  13. Once again a beautiful collage of your girls (and I’d use bribery too to avoid long lines). Too bad I don’t live nearby, I’d take some of those cookies off your hands (or out of your trunk).

  14. Your pictures are more fun to look back on. For me, it’s just snow, snow and more snow.

  15. March was pretty quiet for us. Love the month in photos you do. Your girls are beautiful!

  16. Your girls are growing up so fast!!! Looks like an eventful March! Thanks for sharing!

  17. I have 1 birthday party to go to for 2 people. I think this year May will be my busy month. My sister is due then. She’s have 4 kids then. One has special needs. She may need help. Ya think? I think so. I’ll have her older kiddos over to play.

  18. loved the photos. Winter was long and hard this year, though I did break it up with 2 months in Australia which was marvellous and WARM. I’m looking forward to sunshine and warmth here too – hopefully soon!

  19. Your girls always look like they are engaging in a variety of fun, stimulating activities. It’s wonderful to see.

  20. Our March is madness LOL.. with 4 family member birthdays, march break, end and beginning of new kids sports its a bit crazy
