Memorial Day Weekend

Great food, great family, and great memories were made at our picnic on Memorial Day weekend! Of course, the pool was in full use while we were there and it was a hot day for a good swim. Ailish went in to the pool and swam with Daddy for a while! Nothing was more surprising than Ailish being able to walk across the shallow end of the pool. Don't believe me? Here's the pic...

Gwen got a pedicure the day before and we painted her nails for the first time. She is so proud of her "blueberry" toenails! She went in the pool, the next day, for just about half a minute and decided that the water was just too cold for her, so she spent the rest of her time playing in the fountain. She'd take the water out and hydrate the ants that had the misfortune of being in her line of sight. Though Gwen didn't swim she got plenty wet and collected the toys that were supposed to be in the pool.

Oh, and I promised that this pic would be put up for the world to see...if you want it down, you'll have to pay...

Weekend Update

There isn't much to say these past couple of weeks have been pretty unremarkable. But just so y'all don't think I'm slacking, I took a couple of pics to share of the girls.

Gwen surprises us with her vocabulary. Though sometimes her meaning can be confusing. If you are around her for dinner, she will ask for "hoppy" after she has cleaned her plate. That actually means she wants some chocolate for dessert. Too cute. Oh, and yes, she IS wearing two pair of shorts at the same time in the one pic. The other picture is a self portrait. She took it with my camera, her finger is over the flash. (She has a black eye from last weekend when she launched herself off of the chair and into a table.)

Ailish is on the quest to look like Sharpay from High School Musical. So when we are picking up clothes, she likes the ones that look like her dolly. The good news is that she is wearing dresses. That wasn't a priority before. Yay!

Mother's Day Surprise

Ailish came home today with a gift for me that she just couldn't wait to share. It was bagged and stapled shut. She wanted to open it as soon as she got home, but Grammy convinced her to wait. When I got home, she danced to the door to tell me she had something for me and I have to open it now. Awww, my first Mother's Day gift from her. She helped me pull out the flower and told me to smell it and that we have to water it. When I asked her if she made it for me she said "I don't know." (Her favorite answer to anything we ask about when it comes to school... What did teacher read today? "I don't know." Did you play with blocks? "I don't know." What is your friend's name? "I don't know.") Anyway, I just had to take a picture and brag a little.
