Our Day in Pictures...

This morning we met some friends at "our" {super fun} park for a playdate. Sophie Le has been looking forward to this playdate for months...ever since her "best friend" moved to Houston.

Sophie Le has not fully accepted the fact that her friend moved eight hours away. She still asks if AB can come over to play, go the park with us, sleep over and "why doesn't AB's mommy bring her to church anymore." Ha!

The above picture is cute, huh? Everyone is happy...everyone enjoying their morning at the park. I have a confession...that photo was cropped and cropped pictures can be deceiving...ha!

A certain little sister was not happy. Poor JuJu.

Hillary Ashton and B spent most of their time digging in the dirt and sharing lots of stories, which she "wasn't really suppose to tell me" Ha!

Here they are back in 2009 at their preschool graduation...

How cute are those two? B lives in the same town as Sophie Le's future husband :o) It would be really convenient if both Hillary Ashton and Sophie Le's future spouses lived in the same town..haha! Just sayin'

After a quick lunch, the babies took a {short} nap. They were SO EXCITED to wake up and find Daddy home. Sophie Le said, "Daddy, what are you doing home? It isn't dark outside." Ha! We headed outside to enjoy more of the beautiful day.

There was four wheeler driving...

And some {very crazy} jeep driving...I pray that Hillary Ashton doesn't still think it's cool to drive crazy when she is 16! I am a little nervous.

And lots of jumping {and giggling}

We checked on our Christmas tree...looks as good as the day we cut it down! At this rate, this may be this year's Christmas tree! Ha!

We checked on the creek...the girls were disappointed that there weren't any tadpoles yet. They decided to go fishing instead :o)

We also noticed that a LARGE portion of our yard had standing water which is unusual because our land drains really well. After a little investigation we found the source...a water hose was on full power. Who knows how long that baby has been on! Weeks or months. Luckily, the hose had a sprayer on the end that kept it from pouring out water for a long time...until the pressure forced the sprayer off. I noticed standing water on Monday of this week, but I thought it was from all of the snow...whoops! Not looking forward to this month's water bill...at all!

For supper, we grabbed a hot n' ready (BEST deal ever!) and headed to park #2 for a picnic...

We finished off our day at Yogurt Mountain, a new spot in town. The girls (and boy) LOVED it. You choose what type of yogurt you want (LOTS of choices) and then pile on the toppings. I cannot imagine how much we would have been in debt if we allowed the girls to have free rein at that place...ha!

My little girls both chose bananas, blueberries and strawberries to top off their yogurt...

My big girl went the candy route...the apple didn't fall far from the tree :o)

Sweet Jonah shared with mama...judging by the grunting and clapping between each bite, I think he kinda liked Yogurt Mountain too :o)

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

I agree...the future husbands will have to relocate eventually to live closer to the future mother & father in law!!! Too cute! Love all of the park pictures...we've been having such beautiful weather. After all that snow, I know you've enjoyed it!
