Look, everyone! The tulips in my front yard have started blooming! YEA! The first flowers of spring! The trees have buds, and every day the grass grows little more green. I am so glad it is spring!
It was so nice to be outside without having to wear a big coat!
Okay, doesn't she look so much older than 4? I can't believe how quickly time is flying!
Yes, so, Abigail is pretty much a little drama princess. In a good way. She love to pretend, and I wouldn't be at all suprised if she was interested in acting. Like mother like daughter, right?
So, anyway, yesterday we went to our first cookout of the season. It was at Dr. John's friends house, and it was so fun! Once we figured out where we needed to sit in order to be sitting in the sun (it was a touch to cool to sit in the shade, at least for the girls) it was so nice to just be outside and sit and talk (and eat) and just "soak up the sun." Most of the people there are in intern year, so they hardly ever have time to just sit and enjoy, let alone sit and enjoy IN THE SUNSHINE! And I know I never do, either, and that element of rarity just added even more to the enjoyment. Plus, the food was good. Mmm. Hopefully I will get some pics from the hostess to post for you- Abigail ended up covered in quite a bit of mud!
Also, when I got home from dropping Abigail off at day care this morning, Lily was practically sitting on my laptop! (She knows me so well; come home, check email, blog.) I came over to the couch and grabbed the laptop; she cried that I hadn't grabbed her first! Then, after a few minutes, she just jumped up onto the couch and crawled into my lap while I sat and uploaded the pics from my camera. Lily is a girl who knows what she wants and is not afraid to go and get it!
