February Fun

Unfortunately we started off the month with a round of sickness. Luckily, I've been able to avoid it but Anthony and James were miserable! James was really congested and ended up getting an ear infection. The poor kid was so miserable, he would just wander around the house sniffling and crying. One morning he seemed so miserable that I set him up on the couch with his favorite things and a blanket and turned on trains. He decided he liked being cozy on the couch! You can see in the picture that he decided our otoscope that we use to look in his ears absolutely had to be next to him at all times :)
 After he started to feel better (he still has a little bit of a raspy voice and cough, but otherwise seems healed), we spent the morning volunteering at the farm and were able to take home some freshly picked strawberries. I have never been able to get James to eat strawberries that I buy from the grocery store but he couldn't get enough of the fresh ones! I think he liked that they weren't cold from the refrigerator.

 On Saturday we headed downtown to a snow festival put on by a local church. They advertised that there would be real snow, food, and games all for free. We couldn't pass it up! It was a really fun time, I think we spent at least 2 1/2 hours there.

Here is James playing in the snow. He was really hesitant about the whole thing and only spent a few seconds in there before running out and just watching everyone else play in it.

Of course we had to go down the snow slide! It was so much fun!!
 In the afternoon we had some time before dinner so we decided to head over to the beach and do some fishing. James loved being able to hold the fishing rod!

 He looks like he is ready to reel in a big one!

 James got some birthday money from Anthony's parents and his Aunt Eileen, so we decided to have a FHE about tithing and the Sunday afterwards, he gave the bishop his first tithing! It was so much fun :) I tried to get a good picture, but I can't work Anthony's phone so here you go. Man I love this little boy!
