Rainy Days and Lilacs




We took Amelia outside yesterday after the rain. She was dancing in the puddles with the glee of a two-year old!! LOL! My heart was dancing right along with her. She insisted on carrying my 'brella. Her outfit made me laugh, snuggly jammies, black rubber boots, a coat, and umbrella. Her journey took us to Ella's house, Ella came out to play in her super cute green flower jacket and boots. Both girls took to scooping dirty water and ingesting it much to their delight. I kept saying, "Mia that water is yucky/gross" to which she replied, "no, isa yummy!" What a cheeky monkey. I love watching Amelia and Ella play now. They are starting to interact better and not fight all the time.

Alison let me cut some lilacs off her bush in the alley. The flowers smell soooooooooo good! The flowers are sitting in a Mason jar on my table with a purty purple bow around them. How delicious is spring!!

Today was hopefully my last trip to the laundromat. We did 5 loads of laundry, phew! Amelia and I always walk to the library while the clothes are drying. The library has a fun toy corner filled with educational toys like blocks, puzzles, and peg toys. She played for 40 minutes without batting an eye. We had the Elders over for dinner of Hawiian Haystacks and key lime cheesecake. All in all it was a fun day.

I seriously need to buy that child some cute rain boots!

Her outfit cracks me up! I wish we had rain so the girls could play in puddles - not here.

And the flowers are so pretty - I can smell them through the screen.

Oooh and haystacks - that reminds me - I have not cooked those in a while - thanks for the idea!
