Today was so nice out! It was well into the 80's here in McKinney. I saw that it got into the 90's in some places around the area!! It was beautiful out, so we decided to let Tatum go out on her jeep and "explore" again! They showed me where they went the other day. The big hill she attempted, and more! We found this great place behind our neighborhood you see in the pictures. The land back there has obviously not been prepped for homes yet! It was pretty rocky and ditchy! I am sure the kids in the neighborhood have made it a fun playground for them, so we took advantage, and taught Tatum "balance." The wood planks across the ditches were perfect! There was one, that made me a little nervous because the plank was pretty wobbly!! She did great though! I think that Tatum changes her clothes at least 2 times a day, sometimes more! Today, both times, she dressed herself! So, believe it or not, all the pictures were from today! We got back from her jeep ride, and she wanted to go play in the backyard! I was not too fond of the idea, since it is still in it's ugly Winter phase. We have not been back there in several months, so it is all dead, and gross from the winter weather! But of course, he daddy let her go out there. I kept telling him to stay out there with her, but he insisted she was fine! She played on the playground. She had a ball, and included the dogs in her play as well! Besides licking her to death, they are really good with her out there! Plus, they LOVE the attention! She played for a long time, until it got dark! Today was so nice, we were glad we could spend most of it outdoors!!
Well, Spring soccer has started! Which means cold, wet weather!! I am not sure why Spring soccer in Texas starts in February! We all know February is our coldest month! So, week one of soccer was cancelled, and week two was COLD and Windy! It was fun to see the girls get back in the groove of things! Tatum will be working a bit harder in the weeks to come! It was fun! I am glad she LOVES it, I LOVE watching her play it!!

Daddy took Tatum out Muddin' in her jeep today. They went out yesterday and found a great new "Mud Pit" in the field out behind our neighborhood. So, they went back out today with the camera! Tatum loves to play like she is Dora when she is in her jeep! She always stops, gets out "Map" and checks where they are going! She stops and explores every tree she passes. She pretends to cross over the rivers, bridges, and over mountians! She is so funny! So, today Richard took her to this big hill! He was so proud of her, she wasn't scared a bit! He even said he was a little nervous when he was about to have her to head down! I love her face in the video when she is coming down the hill. You can tell she was nervous, then gets a smile, when she is almost at the bottom!! She had fun! They also found a baby mouse! Yesterday, Richard picked up a huge piece of wood, and underneath was a mama mouse and her baby! They said it was about the size of a Quarter! Tatum said it was "so cute!" The baby was there again today! I am sure the mama was smart enough to run an hide. But she forgot to teach her baby that important life lesson!! Anyhow, Tatum had a ball riding through all the mud!! I am sure they will continue to "explore" daily, to see what else they can find!!!

Tonight was the premiere of the new show on NBC, "My Dad is Better Than Your Dad!" We were watching it tonight, and I thought it was so cute to see and listen to Richard and Tatum watch and talk about how they could do that better!!! I knew Richard was sitting there wishing Tatum was about 5 years older, so that they could apply to be on that show! They are both so competitive, I know they wold love to do that show, and WIN!!! After watching the Dads and Kids on the show, Tatum wanted her Daddy to get down on the floor and do "cheers" with her! It was cute watching Tatum teach her daddy a cheer!

This past weekend was so beautiful! We wanted to do something besides hang around the house or be inside the stores, so we decided to find a resturant with an outside patio to have lunch! We meet Sally and Morgan at MiCocina, and Michele, Ben, and Emma met us there a little bit later! First of all, sitting on a resturant patio, at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon is all the entertainment we really needed. There were so many people there, who had one too many Margarita's! These people were crazy! But, the kids had fun because there was a pond with ducks! Tatum and Emma took an entire bowl of chips over to feed to the ducks! They had a blast! It was so nice outside, we were glad we were able to find a place where we could sit, observe, and take our time! Morgan took this picture on her cell phone, I thought it turned out really cute!! We can't wait for more beautiful weather!
