After picking Kellan up from Preschool, we had to make a Costco run. Almost like any other Costco run, but this time it was just Kellan and I. Ever since Arley was born, Kellan and I don't get a lot of us time. I miss it.... just us. I love all the time spent with Arley too. It's just nice to spend one on one time with each kid. So... back to our Costco run- Kellan was such a good boy at Costco today. We went down all the aisles, looked at the toys and even got some samples. Usually with kids, a Costco run get a little crazy. But this trip was sooooo easy! He was just a perfect boy the whole time. We even got some lunch and ate at there too! We never get to do that. It made Kellan so happy to sit and eat our pizza and smoothies together. Just us. I look forward to sharing these easy moments with Arley too. Sometimes, all you need is a good Costco run to bring you back together! Love you Kellan!

While my lucky husband got to go off on a vacation with the boys, I was running wild this weekend too.... but nothing to exciting! On Friday we went to see the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile! I saw a post on Facebook right before I had to pick up Kellan from preschool, so I decided we NEEDED to see it! The kids were kind of confused at first why we were checking out a giant hotdog. But they finally got into it! They even got weenie whistles and stickers!
On Saturday, we had Opening Day for Baseball and Kellan's 1st baseball game. Opening day was fun to see all of the different teams on one field. Kellan is on the White Sox 5-6 year old Machine pitch team. He loves his team! We even got to see when A&W Bear!!
Kellan did great in his first game! He was so excited and pumped to finally be playing in a real game. He hit the ball on his very first swing the first time at bat! I think he was surprised that he hit it too! SO proud of my little baseball player!
I love watching Kellan play baseball! I'm pretty sure i'm going to love being a baseball mom! Arley did pretty well all day too. It was a super long day for her, but she was a trooper. My mom was there, so that was a big help. I can't wait for Rob to watch Kellan play! GO WHITE SOX!

I know, I know.... its been a while! Life has been crazy over here at the Barrington house. So much has happened within the last 6 months. We have bought a house! We did it! It took a lot of work, but its all ours and we love it! We closed in October and moved in December...like 5 days before Christmas. If you know us, everything we do comes at crazy times. Between working a ton of hours and moving in, I was determined to have a full Christmas in our new home. I'm still surprised that I got everything together.
Arley has turned 2! Where has the time gone. She is such a big girl now. She can count up to 15 and has been singing ABC's for a few months. It amazing how fast she is learning everything. I love all her questions for me everyday and all her songs she sings. She might make me go crazy sometimes but she lights up my life.
My big boy Kellan turned 5 in March. I can't believe I have a 5 year old!!! I remember bring him home from the hospital and now I am practicing baseball and playing light sabers and now you will be starting Kindergarten in the Fall. Stay little for as long as you can, you will always be my baby boy.
And we got a puppy! Callie is a 14 week old German Shepard and Husky mix! We love her and we are so happy to have welcomed her into our family!
