A day with my big girl...

I try to do my best to spend a day (or morning) with each of my girls alone on a regular basis...well not necessarily alone, but where they are the only child and get all of the attention :o) During the school year this is pretty easy because each girl has their separate activities, but during the summer it get a little tougher. In fact, this summer I haven't done a very good job having "Hill days" or "Soph days"

This past week, we took Sophie Le to MDO for the day while Hillary Ashton and I spent the day together. Here are a few of my favorite pics (I can't believe how grown up she looks!!!).

Our first stop was at the pool where we met up with a couple friends:

If you read my post about SeaWorld, then you can imagine the excitement Hillary Ashton felt when she found a "Shamu" at the pool. She rode it all around the pool. I couldn't get a pic of that or she would have fallen off :o) She also insisted in taking it with her to have a snack.

Next we picked up pasta at a local Italian place (her fave) and we took it to the park to have lunch with daddy. She was so excited about the merry go round, she didn't eat much of her lunch. Of course, she was "starving" by the time we left the park. Here are several pics of her on the merry go round...I just love the expressions she makes.

I didn't notice at the time, but daddy is sticking his tongue out at me...shame on you, daddy!

Afterwards, we went to pick up Sissy...we missed her a bunch :o) Thanks for a fun day Miss Hill Ash!
