Rainy Day Walk

 Heidi and I were on our own this afternoon.  It was too wet to go play at any of the local parks so I took her to a 'walking park' where we could walk around a little lake.  She loved chasing the ducks, seeing the geese (including a rather large gosling that was loosing its fluffy baby feathers), seeing baby ducks and exploring with her umbrella.  We had a good time - until her little legs got tired - then we did some funny dances to get back to the car - going to have to work on her endurance to do some hiking this summer!

Spring Lilies

 Heidi told me yesterday she wanted to wear her pink dress to church and then take pictures with the pretty flowers.  For all her excitement she wasn't so into the pictures - and the sun was actually out shining (briefly!) but I did get a few (and Allison jumped in, too, but they insisted on NOT doing a picture together - silly girls!)

This girl.  She loves to clean.  Seriously.  She even was giving cleaning supplies for Christmas and her birthday.  And she loves them.  And uses them.  She was very enthusiastic on Saturday about her chores.  I caught her taking out the trash.  By herself!  Oh, and if you could have heard the fit she threw when she realized Allison got to clean the bathroom while she was napping.  Seriously, this girl is kinda crazy.  In a good way!

Bike Girl

 This girl keeps us entertained.  She went through the house to get her bike in the garage, brought it back through the house and out to the back yard to ride on it.  She isn't supposed to ride without a helmet but we were so humored by her determination she might have gotten away with it this once (plus she couldn't really go very fast on the grass! :))

A Princess and a Superhero!

 We had a busy Saturday - starting the day with a birthday party for a little friend (and making cards for her before we headed out!).  Heidi thought the party warranted a special hat - or crown.  She wore it most of the day until she traded it in for a party hat!

 The party was at a park with a huge slide, big fields and tons of crafts.  Allison loved making every last thing so by the time she was done she had quite the get-up.

 Have to get a pic of sweet little Aili in the skirt I made - I decided skirts are the best gifts for b-day parties for little girls :)
 The party hat!  Explaining to me how tall the slide is!

 And the Superhero wonder-girl!
 We spent the rest of the day back home 'working' in the yard.  Some of us working harder than others!
