Girls Just Want To Have Fun

All is well here at our home.  The last week or so has passed so quickly.  We've been busy with a number of things, but we've still had time for some fun.

 Jadyn is off from school tomorrow, so who knows what we will get into.  I hope it's nice enough for a little trip to the park.  I haven't checked the weather yet.  I think neither of us would mind the rain.  She loves to be out in it as much as I will let her.  Following, are some photos of her playing in the rain on a pretty cold day.

We planted some seeds recently and hopefully they will grow basil and tomatoes.  Jadyn just loves to do this sort of thing. No sprouts yet, but maybe they will be up any day.  They are on the kitchen windowsill.

Last weekend, I took Jadyn to an open house at a local nursery.  She was so excited to do the children's activities. Here she is, having her face painted.  She also planted seeds, and had her caricature drawn.  There were treats and balloons too.  What's not to love? 

Planting sunflower seeds.  They are already growing!
Jadyn and I went shopping yesterday. We were actually just shopping for pillows, but of course we had to stop and take a look at the purses, hats, and flip flops.  We had some fun trying on hats.  

Jadyn snapped a couple of me.  They were pretty fuzzy, but I'm adding this one anyway.  It was fun to be silly together.  
Treasure from a 6 year old.  :)  Some day, she won't be into picking the dandelions for me, so I'll enjoy this phase.  

Have a very wonderful Mother's Day weekend with your family!

Happy Mother's Day weekend to you as well Laura!
You are such an incredible Mother! So patient, kind and loving. Even thought I'm not *that* much younger than you, I still look up to you. :) Does that sound weird???

You do so much with Jadyn. Planting seeds to making a jar full of "The Unloved Flower's" special.

I hope that you get spoiled good and plenty this Sunday! You deserve it.
