One fine day.....

I couldn't title this everyday things because, well, this might be the first day this year the girls could actually play with sidewalk chalk barefoot on the driveway (even if they did have to be in hoodies).
Winter storm warning is in effect tonight and tomorrow....WINTER....yeah.....April 17th, 2013.Sigh.

PS that's a 60 year old tree in our front yard packed full of tree pollen. Even with this horrible spring we're having that tree knows just how to stick it to me.

our favorite things.....

Rasa was sitting on the floor with an etch-a-sketch pretending to write a list (rows of scribbles that looked like cursive handwriting). I asked her what she was doing and she replied, "I'm writing a letter of all of my favorite things."

I asked her what would be on her list and she replied with the following:
Riding bikes
Having fun
Animals at the zoo
Crocodiles!

She asked Adia what her favorite things were so she could write them on the list. Adia replied with:
Candy from the gas store
Visiting Nana (to which Rasa replied, "Oh that's a great one!")
Movies on the Kindle

Rasa chimed in again:
Throwing our garbage away!
Eating healthy lunch, that makes Mommy and Daddy happy

Adia again:
Playing with Mommy
Playing with Daddy
Playing with Rasa
Playing with Lucy
Swimming in pools
Valentine's day
Love!

The girls asked me to come up with more and I said lots of things like, spending time with them, playing outside, the cabin, being with Daddy, our friends, taking pictures, summer!

The more we listed off the more excited we all got. At one point Rasa asked us to slow down because she couldn't write that fast ;)
