Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It was unbelievably nice out for St. Patty's day this year, so after a playgroup with some other twin moms (at which my kids were VERY well behaved, I'm happy to report), we needed to head outside! The boys were anxious to enjoy the sun.

In these, Jack has a green shirt and red hat, and Ben has a white shirt with a blue hat.
We blew bubbles...

Ben looks like Jack in this one.

Ben practiced his standing and taking steps...

And practiced using a lawnmower.

Jack played with his favorite trucks.

And he did keep his hat on most of the time.

Mairead was all dolled up with her pigtails and St. Patrick's day ribbons.

They were exhausted, but still managed to play on the swingset.

Ben gave his big brother a push.

Mairead lent a hand to My Nana as they raked up some leaves.

Some goldfish crackers helped tide Ben over until dinner.

They looked SO cute in their little hats and Irish shirts. We loved the weather and are looking forward to a lot more of it.

Mairead had a great day at school today. She gave me a kiss goodbye and two kisses when I picked her up, which was very cute. Her teacher said she did great with eye contact and with following directions. When I picked her up, I watched her sit in a circle with the other kids and patiently listen to the teachers. Also today, she used several new phrases such as, "come with me," and "It was fun." She also started using a few new signs since we have started watching a few dvds to teach baby sign language. She is learning SO much lately and we are so proud of her.
The boys did well at their PT session today and are putting away more food than you can imagine. Now that the nice weather is here, we can burn off that energy outside!
