April Wrap Up

April felt like a productive month for us. While the weather wasn’t great during most of the month here in Iowa, it’s starting to come around. Here’s our month in photos, both from the blog and from our family.

Follow me on Facebook, Pinterest or Intstagram to stay up to date all month long!

Lots of Monogram decorating projects as I finish up our monogram mantle gallery and a few extras. I hope to be able to finish it up in May and be able to share it with you.

I was also working on various gifts and made a few new bracelets. These would also make great Mom’s Day Gifts!

We had a busy month with family activities and friends too.

Carter started soccer in early April which started out a bit rocky, but he’s enjoying it more now. Here’s the first week and the third week comparison pictures. As you can see it was still hat weather for both games. His expression in the first picture cracks me up every time I look at it!

We had a few nice days where we made trips to the park. Here’s one where we spent an afternoon doing all sorts of boy things – tree climbing, digging in the sand, and climbing UP the slide.

Last week I went to a conference for work in Palm Beach, FL. We stayed at the PGA National resort. While I didn’t golf, I still enjoyed the scenery. I’m happy to be done with work travel for a little while!

We had a wedding this past weekend for some long time friends. Carter looked quite handsome in his little tie and hat. He was a dancing machine at the reception. We had a good time too!
