MLK Day at the park

After a series of some rough spots last week (Lucy's daycare tuition is increasing, I got some unpleasant medical news, Andrew's school is getting taken over by the state and he may not have a job next year), we were all pretty happy to have some reinforcements over the weekend and to have an extra day off of work to relax before getting back into our routine. Boogie and Pop Pop came down from Shreveport to visit Lucy and help out, and as an added bonus they were able to deliver the house Santa brought Lucy at Christmas. THANK YOU!!!

They headed home on Sunday & we were able to enjoy a fun family day with icees at the park (a little hidden neighborhood treasure I recently discovered while driving around to let Lucy keep sleeping in the car seat rather than wake her up by bringing her inside!). She's still a tad bit too small for the baby swings, but she doesn't seem to mind -- she was all smiles and squeals when we got her going in that thing! :) Lucy's love of the outdoors is a great reminder for me to get some fresh air every day and hopefully will aid in Team Powers' goal to get more exercise in the new year.

P.S. Like our new hairdo? Our "chicken hair" is finally getting long enough for hair bows, much to Daddy's dismay.
