Day 184 - Our Day...

We REALLY enjoyed having Daddy home today!

We had a yummy lunch at Panera Bread...

Okay...so he was a couple tables over (in the blue shirt), but they are still in the same picture :o)

Sweet little Jonah is going through separation anxiety. As in, don't put me down or I will cry until you pick me up...don't test my stamina...I will win. This too will pass. This too will pass. Luckily, he is super duper sweet as long as he is being held :o)

After lunch we went to a park to play. The girls LOVED playing in the sand. I really hope we can go to the beach this summer. I LOVE the beach.

On the way home, we stopped to get some touch up paint for the house. Unfortunately, it was the wrong finish...ugg!

After supper, the girls racked in big bucks for The Sweet Girl Shop...

Sophie Le decided to cash her dollars in for a ball and jax set...

Daddy tried to show Sophie Le the intended use of the ball and jax set...

Sophie Le preferred sorting the jax into groups :o) Haha! That girl LOVES to organize. She also liked spinning the jaxs :o)

Hillary Ashton did a little shopping too :o) She chose the art set (crayons, narrow markers and colored pencils - all on sale at Wal-Mart right now!).

She colored for the rest of the night with her "fresh" crayons :o) I hope she always loves art! She told us tonight that when she grows up she wants to be a book illustrator...that would be super cool job!

The girls were so excited when we told them they could hold the kittens tonight...they LOVE the sweet kittens.

This is Lilly. She is Hillary Ashton's favorite kitten. I love the zebra stripes on her belly!

Sophie Le's favorite is the solid black kitten. She named him/her Tree Man. Haha!

Getting four kittens to pose for a picture is almost as hard as getting four kids to pose :o) Haha! Almost.

Well this isn't going very well...but how sweet is that little face?

Finally got them all looking! From left to right, Lilly (named by HAA), Joy (HAA), LuLu (named by Le) and Tree Man (Le)

Don't forget...all of the kittens will be ready for their new home in a few weeks! Just let me know if you are interested :o)
