A Day in the Life of the Girls

What a gorgeous weekend. The weather could not have been more perfect. We spent A LOT of time outside. The girls helped Chris complete many small projects...

Chris had just gone around and pounded in some of the nail pops on our deck. Melia immediately ran in the house to get her hammer and drill...the tools that daddy was using.

Eva joined in as soon as the hammer was put down

If you want precision measurement...just ask Eva

Melia measuring her arm in her shadow.

Their new favorite place to eat (which saves my kitchen I don't mind :)

Melia also spent A LOT of time riding her tricycle. She has ridden her trike to the park (about 1/2 mile away) three times this week. We went out last night to get her a big bike with training wheels. We got it home, Chris put it together, and the wheel is back to the store it goes today. She was so excited to ride it. She has been practicing in the store for the last few weeks. When we walk into a store, she asks, "Is there bikes here? Can I go ride one?" (more picts to come, when she gets a bike that works)

After a busy first half of the weekend...we enjoyed a wonderful family day yesterday. I got to sleep in, then we went up town to watch the very small Memorial Day Parade (the girls loved the band), and then back home to work and play around the house. When the girls went down for their nap, Rebekah and I went out for an afternoon of pampering (I got a pedicure) and shopping for accessories and shoes for the upcoming wedding this weekend. It is crazy, how having your feet done, can make you feel so pretty.

Last night, I was up way to late creating this...As a part of the Sling and Swaddle competition that I am in, I had to create a profile picture and submit a 100-150 bio about myself that will be on their site. If you don't know what I am talking about you can read about it here. It is supposed to be a pict of mom and baby, and since baby boy has not arrived yet, this is what they will get for now. The competition starts on June 1st. I will let you know when my twitter page is up and running, so you can all run over there and follow me :)
