I have to laugh every time Hannah dresses herself. When we were leaving for the playground yesterday afternoon, I asked her to grab a sweatshirt since it was very windy. She appeared instead in the pink shrug that came with her Easter dress... she's always the girly-girl!!

(I am proud to report, however, that she can run with the best of them. There were two little boys at the playground whom she immediately befriended, and she quickly managed to stain both of her knees in the process.) We had so much fun. Look at the joy on her face!

Happy little girls!

Hi, Mom!!!Two little cuties.

More playground fun

The playground has this cool contraption that is similar to a see-saw. I had never seen one before this but if you look at the picture below, notice that Hannah and Emma are both on tan seats. They were able to work together (well Hannah did the work, Emma just held on and giggled) to get it going. It really looked like fun... and it appeared to require less physical exertion than what I recall "old" see-saws needing. Sisters and friends.
Emma and Mommy.My beautiful girl, without her top two teeth! In fact, she had just pulled one out earlier that afternoon.

I think this movie deserves an academy award in both the action and comedy categories. I laugh every time I watch it... but be warned... it's a little graphic!
ps. Don't worry... Emma didn't even care that she hit the dirt and got right back up and did it again! I'm still laughing!!!

All Aboard!

This afternoon we took the girls on their very first train ride. We drove up to New Hope, PA, and boarded a coach for a round-trip ride to, well, basically nowhere. My parents drove up to the turn-around point in Lahaska and although we weren't able to get off the train to talk to them, we waved and they took pictures! My camera wasn't working so I'm glad Gram and Pop were there to snap a few cute shots. (thanks, Dad!)

The train was moving in this picture. All aboard!
Approaching the turn-around.
There's my mom. Hi Gram!Delaney had a hard time figuring out exactly what we were going to do today. She must have been picturing the little train ride at the mall, because she kept asking if we were going to the mall and eating at Chick Fil-A. She got very excited upon seeing the "real" train and all three girls enjoyed the ride. So did Mommy and Daddy!

More backyard fun

We have more fun in our own backyard than we ever have anywhere else (well, except for maybe Disney World. hee-hee). I love to take pictures of the girls and see the joy on their faces when we're out there.

I have a cute video of this one that I hope to post soon. Delaney looks so grown up, doesn't she?
Climbing the ladder.
And just what is THAT coming up the ladder?Oh! It's Emma, the monkey. I should've known.
(Daddy was quite unhappy that Mommy let her do this by herself! Hey, a girl's gotta learn, right?)

Stylin' girl

Emma likes to look pretty. Here she is, trying out her new hat from Nana and Papa. And yes, she has a mouthful of food... animal crackers ( just in case you really wanted to know!).

Delaney received a Target gift card for her birthday, so today we went shopping. She eyed all of the toys carefully, until she came upon this cute pink shopping cart. Right away she "had to have it", and all of its plastic food contents (I think it's hilarious that the items are all marked "organic"!). She gleefully pushed it up and down the aisles, through the check-out lane, and across the parking lot. Hannah helped her get it into the van and all three of them played with the plastic food on the ride home. Thanks, Aunt Susan, for the fun gift!
