Day 79 - Lunch Date, Playhouse & Giveaway...

Hillary Ashton & I (and Jonah) decided to surprise Daddy at work today for a fun lunch date :o)

Hillary Ashton thought it would be "super cool" to decorate brown paper sacks to carry our lunches...

She thought it was hilarious...

...that mommy's body ended up on the bottom of the sack :o) I just LOVE when she gets tickled about something!

Our town has one (that I know of) street performer that hangs out downtown. He stands still until someone puts money in his bucket.

Of course, this is right up Hillary Ashton's alley :o)

After a quick lunch by the river, we walked over to the cool tunnel park. Check out the expression on her little face after going down the tall, tube slide...sweetness! I love how excited she gets about life :o)

It is funny how easy everything seems with only two kiddos :o) Haha!

See that blue building in the background...the one with a huge red arrow...haha? That is where hubby & I used to work together :o) I would have never expected ten years later we would be playing with our child blocks away :o) Crazy!

After we got home, we worked on her playhouse some more :o) She LOVES having projects to work on. First, we added curtains for privacy :o)

Who knew a dryer box could be so much fun? Haha!

If you would like to send her some mail, here is her address :o) Haha!

She likes playing peek-a-boo...and so do I :o)

She also likes to put on puppet shows...and I like that too :o)

She was thrilled when she checked her mailbox and found mail addressed to her :o)

This will probably come at no surprise...but Princess Lola likes the playhouse too :o)

Hillary Ashton's house is adorable! Is she missing her sisters or just enjoying her "mommy time" ?

The play house is adorable. Love the mailbox. Can't wait to see the next give away. Are the littles at your parents again tonight? How are you standing it? You must be going crazy without them.

H's house looks so fun! I'd love to stop by for tea or something! ha! :) The mailbox is such a great idea!

I love the picture with the S. Building in the background. I always think it's strange to go by it now--as you said--a decade later and thinking of how God's plans are so neat and so unexpected.
