2014: Year in Review

2014 has been a full year!!!
Here's a look back--

We started off the year on a Disney cruise.  This was our first trip away since having J.  We had a blast!!!

J played outside on the driveway with his car from Santa.

 We tried Mother's Day Out, but didn't stick with it due to getting RSV in February.

We celebrated Aaron's birthday with a nice dinner out to Cacharel.

And... Aaron started his graduate studies online at UNT.
J got sick with RSV.  Boo!!!
We celebrated J's 2nd Birthday with a car themed party. 
We celebrated our 7th anniversary with a family day.
  My mom made me my favorite dinner and red velvet cake for my birthday.
Over Spring Break, we spent a fun day at the park with RaRa.
We enjoyed the beautiful weather and played outside a lot!!!



Cousin Eli was born on April 15th, so we went and visited.
Daddy took a day off work, and we went to the zoo.

We celebrated Easter Sunday.

We went to the zoo with a group from church.
The beauty of working part-time- going to the park in the middle of the week.
We played with bubbles, sidewalk chalk...
I put together another successful Career Day at YMLA.
J got ear tubes and did great!!!  Only kid in the place not screaming and crying!!!
I said "good bye" to my office at YMLA because I didn't want to work full-time.
J played outside more- loved the sprinklers!!!
Fun Saturday breakfasts out with Daddy!
 Swim lessons that were a bust!!!!
Our first road trip...destination, Florida.
 J loved the beach!!!
 Another successful beach trip with RaRa and GPa!!!
On June 29th, we also discovered I was pregnant with baby # 2!!!  No pic for that!!!
Beside lots of laying on the couch due to pregnancy sickness, we went to Jackson Hole and RaRa and GPa's cabin.
We played in RaRa and GPa's pool. 
Played outside some more and took selfies...
J had his first day of Preschool.
And... we announced we were expecting baby #2!!!
Oh and I resigned from FWISD, which means I didn't start back to work which felt really weird.
We went to the Back to School Picnic at J's school.
