We are moving!!

It's so long overdue but the time is finally here....Zwei Baby (the blog) is moving! I've been meaning to do this for awhile now but just haven't had the time to get things set up at the new web address.
I'll be keeping this post at the top as a reminder over the next few days. In the meantime I'm going to be running a couple of contests for the "Grand Opening" on the other site as well as getting together a fun new tutorial to kick things off with!
Can't wait to see you there!!
For those of you kind enough to read about Zwei Baby at this address I thought I would give you a heads up about one of the contests! I'm going to have a contest (prize will be something Zwei Baby related (a new item though..not something in the current line) that simply ask readers to sign up to follow the blog. Doing so earns an entry into the contest. CLICK ON OVER from this entry to the new blog and sign up to get triple the entries (that's right you get entered THREE times)!!

I've added a new style of bib to the shop and would love to hear your opinions! The original Everyday Bib can still be found in the shop and uses binding around the bib with ties at the neck. The new style of Everyday Bib uses a snap at the side of the neck.
So...what's your opinion? What works easiest in your everyday life? I'd love to hear!

Summer Days

Just another great day at the ballpark...... a minor league game again which is SO family friendly! The boys had a great time watching the action, eating a hotdog and peanuts of course. They both had the opportunity between innings to run across the field with a group of other kids (all older and WAY ahead of the boys) and daddy of course!

Daddy's Day

We have a new tradition beginning in our family! Last year for my husband's birthday we all went to a minor league baseball game to watch the Brewer's Single A Advanced affiliate (the Brewers are his favorite MLB team) and had a fantastic time.
So...this year when asked what he wanted for his birthday he thought we should go to another baseball game. And so begins our little tradition....
The boys just love going to baseball games and everything that goes with them...popcorn, peanuts, mascots as long as they aren't too close! I took a picture of Josh and the boys with Jeremy Jeffress, the Brewers 2006 first round draft choice and then we got a seat to watch him warm up (man does he throw fast, 100 mph).
We stayed for nearly the entire game and had a great time singing Cowboy Mouth songs with the boys on the way home!
Overall a very enjoyable birthday for Dad and the rest of the gang!

Long weekends...

What a great Memorial Day weekend we had! We spent the long weekend at the Reunion Resort just a short drive from our own house with our Grandma, Pops, Aunt Katie and Uncle Nate. The boys had a fantastic time swimming in the pool every morning and playing on the patio in the afternoon. The hills on the golf course made for a perfect place to roll and catch with our gloves and tennis balls!
**Sorry Pops and picture program almost cropped you out of the picture!
