Well the boys got some free tickets to go to a monster truck show here in town and I thought that Ava and I could do a girls night that included mani's and pedi's at a nearby salon. It turned out great... so great that she wanted to keep going and hit the mall for ear piercing! I drew the line on that request and said let's maybe wait til' your seven ... for an extra special day to come along! I see it in her future! Here are a few pics of her outing and one of the boys before they departed to go see the trucks!

Easter is always hustle bustle for us. This year was extra fun because we got to a do an egg hunt (well the kids did) on TV. The March of Dimes asked us to participate with other preemie friends and it was a big success. That kicked of about three more egg hunts at the church and grandparents. We had a lovely time and they got to meet Jared Sullinger (OSU Basketball) so Adam was thrilled ... I must add that they met him PRIOR to their TV appearance as he was on before them talking about going pro. Their dad was proud to say the least and even their grandpa Jim got alot of miles talking about it and sharing the photo with the rest of the Parkers at Saturday morning breakfast at Bob Evans. Oh the joys of bragging about grandchildren!! Lots of Easter fun yet again and this time they are really understanding the real meaning of Easter.

Sweet pictures of the cousins however the chlorine got the best of them!
My brother and sis n law came into town and I took the day off to spend with Alair while Chad was in meetings. The kids got to swim at the Polaris Hilton and had a ball doing so! The kids were just asking me about Camden so it was perfect timing that he came into town. We got to go to the park too because it was nice out ... well forty some degrees nice out but hey... it's February and JUST about March so it was time to get out and get some fresh air. My nephew Cooper who is two is growing quickly and looks like a big boy with his haircut.. he's quite a cuddler too! All in all a great impromptu trip by my family and we love and miss them dearly!

Here is Ava practicing a dance routine she is learning for a May recital she will be in. She is taking dance for the first time at Dublin Dance Arts Academy and she really enjoys it. I'm glad I've gotten her into it and Andersen goes with us every Friday and cheers her on. He starts t-ball in April so we will be running lots I'm sure! Here's a sneak peek of her doing her thing!!

Last Sunday we attended the March of Dimes kickoff event for their walk, March for Babies. We had a nice time and I must say, my kiddo's were a few of the oldest ones there (sad face). There are obviously families involved who are fresh off the NICU rollercoaster and then there is us.... six years removed from it. We will be doing the walk again this year and although we may walk every year from here on out, I think this may be it for fundraising. I hate to see it come to a close but I am feeling it may be time.
As a coordinator of special events and coordinating the Kidney Walk, the average "life" of a friends and family team is 3 to 5 years, tops! This will be our SEVENTH walk so I count that as a job well done for Team Parker Twins and not too shabby raising almost $30,000 dollars for the organization. I have had a wonderful experience, many mementos to reflect our walks and A and A are finally understanding what it means to have been born premature and why it is we give back.
Andersen enjoyed himself at the kickoff as you can see! Afterwards we went to a movie and it saw the secret world of Arietty .. Ava fell asleep with ten minutes to go. Although growing up at six and tugging at my heart immensely, she is still my baby fallin asleep during movies... guess it's the little things we hold onto.
