Colorado Here We Come!

Yes, that's right we will soon be moving to Colorado. Patrick is taking a sales job with the same company he currently works for and his territory will be northern Colorado. We found a house on our last trip up there and so we will be in Erie, which is about 15 miles east of Boulder. The movers come a week from today so I'm relishing the last few moments of relative calm before the storm. I haven't updated this blog in awhile so here's a few highlights of our recent adventures. Stay tuned for Colorado pictures (I'm thinking SNOW) soon.

Evan's 2nd Year Highlights

Can you believe Evan is already 2 years old! I haven't kept up with this blog very well but the album above shows some of the highlights of the year. We had a great birthday party a couple of weeks ago and Evan had a blast playing at the park. He didn't eat hardly any birthday cake this year but ice cream was still a hit. Happy Birthday sweet Evan!

Spring Time Fun

We have already been having lots of fun this spring. We try to take advantage of the nice weather before the scorching 100 degree summer hits. For spring break (not that we really have one anymore) we took a trip to near Fredericksburg to hang out with the whole Webb clan. We ended up with 9 adults and 6 kids (4 under age 4) in a four-bedroom house. Now that's a family gathering! We had a great time staying at a rental house on the LBJ ranch. There was a lot of room for the kids to run around and the weather was nice.

Last week, Evan and I traveled to west Texas to see my family while Patrick was away for business travel. We got to visit lots of family which is always nice. We also got our share of that lovely west Texas wind :) One highlight of the trip was Evan's first visit to the zoo. He had a great time and was worn out afterward. His favorite animals seemed to be the alligator and the giraffes.

Evan was a little uncertain about feeding the giraffes

Yay for the zoo!

Thursday, February 17, 2011 Update

What a bad mom blogger I have been. No update since the Fall! What can I say, life gets in the way. Evan has been growing and changing so much over the past few months. The biggest change is his vocabulary. He had a remarkable language explosion between 15 and 18 months. Now (20 months today) he knows so many words I can't even keep count. He understands just about everything we say, although he doesn't always comply (typical toddler, right?). Here are just a few highlights of the past few months.
