Summer anyone?

Spring has sprung and summer is nearer. We have had the paddling pool out and the toys are outside being played with. The BBQ has been used a few times and hopefully I few more to come. Bathroom renovations are underway, 3 to do! We seem to spend a lot of time renovating. Baby Victoria is coming on leaps and bounds, Melissa just gets taller and loves to talk and play. She helped me to bake cupcakes today and they tasted great.
No luck on the job front so it looks like plan B will be put into place sooner than later. Sigh!
