March was a blast...a blast of cold weather, a blast of warm weather, and anything but consistency with clothing and activities. The greatest gift is that Patrick continues to love being a big brother, which makes things more fun but also more manageable while Chris is in Kansas. He has taken to reading his books to Riley, so hopefully I’ll get one of the videos to upload.
Baba Sue and Papa Kevin came for a visit and they took Patrick and Riley to the Children's Museum in Portsmouth. We also had a couple of chances to be at the beach--Riley's first real visit included. The weather was nice enough to be outside, but Patrick was convinced (with his best friend Amanda) that the water was also warm enough. In case anyone was wondering, THEY WERE WRONG!
Towards the end of the month we went with Amanda and her mom (and my dear friend!) Rebecca to the Aquarium. We also made a few trips to the beach to feed the gulls and the kids had a blast. Patrick even got one to eat from his hand...something he talked about for days. It's days like that we know we'll miss, but I'm so grateful to have had the chance to spend this time with the kids. It looks like our move to Kansas won't happen at Spring Break as planned, so we'll see how quickly the bank will complete our refinance so we can be reunited as a family.
