First Day of Spring

Is it Sunday night already? We had such a lovely weekend. Our sweet babysitter, Sara, was home for spring break and she offered to stay with the kids one night. So on Friday we went to Fleming's with Kay and Jerrell and had a great time. Four hours passed by in a flash. Then we stayed up late catching up with Sara and hearing all about college life at DBU. It made me miss my old roomies.

On Saturday I had breakfast with a friend from church named Erin and I got to hear all about her trip to India to serve the girls at As Our Own. It was three months later, but better late than never! It was a blessing to hang out with her. Then I met up with my mom and sister and we did a little spring shopping at City Center. One of the delightful members of our trio was having a very honest day and we laughed a lot.

We had a really wonderful morning at church and then took our kids for a quick bite of pizza at this place called Russo's. I've decided that New York style is my favorite. We all took naps and then spent a lazy evening at home. Well, Curtis wasn't very lazy. He has been power washing our white house and making it gleam. Speaking of gleam, the Super Moon last night was amazing! I felt like we should've been watching E.T. during it.

I was enjoying some tea after my nap while Curtis "supervised" the children in the back yard. Little did I know that Annabeth had gotten into some water in the nice outfit she'd worn to church. Curtis just took it off her and let her play in her onesie. She was like a little ice cube but she had so much fun.















Ahhhchooo!





It took me a second to realize what was going on here.



The water must not have tasted good.

Sweet pictures of AB. It is amazing to me to see a child with a water hose playing outside in March of all things. Us Michiganders don't see that sort of phenomenon til the end (maybe) of June!

I think she's looking more and more like Jackson if those pictures are any indication. (Which, by the way, in my mind, is a very good thing!) :) Precious!

AB is the cutest thing I've ever seen. What a sweetie pie.

Lindsee said...

That snot bubble is the best.

Also, I just need to know one thing, did you do any damage at Free People? I will be living vicariously through all of you for the next 40 days.

Marla Taviano said...

Shellie Paparazzo said...

Oh, that is adorable! And it is way past my bedtime! I'm just now catching up on my blogs after my vacation! On the first day of spring here, my girls and I woke up to snow!! Typical Idaho! Always likes to remind us that spring is mostly only a myth around here! We have brief teasers before summer, but no real spring. That's okay. It's a good trade off for very few triple degree days in the summer!!! I'll take it!!!! Especially since I get to spend my summer in the mountains! Yay!!!!

Bobbie said...

What a priceless memory..for all of you! Looks like she really enjoyed her day!

TDM Wendy said...

Is that a snot bubble? If so, nice capture!!!
