Fancy Lilia and Fancy Elayna

One head band was not enough for these Fancy girls. They love reading Fancy Nancy books. I have two very Fancy girls, who are still in pajamas!

Walk with Grandpa

We went on a walk with grandpa and the cousins. We found walnuts and acorns along the path. The kids ran ahead on the path. When I called, "red light" they would stop and run back to give grandpa a hug and say, "we love grandpa".  Then they would run ahead on the path way again.

Sidewalk Chalk and Pink

We had a great time playing with the chalk. It was a nice cool afternoon. Notice I have a right handed and left handed girls. I was trying to cook dinner and still play with the girls outside. Pink is the color they fought over the most.

Cousins and the Creek

We went to the park and the cousins had a great time playing. They explored the creek. The first picture they are mostly clean but by the end of the adventure they were dirty and wet. Grandma slipped and got really wet in the creek.

Our Favorite Park

We headed to the park on a nice cool day. This is our favorite park. Lilia loves the climbing web. Elayna figured out how to climb the web this trip. She followed her sister up the web of ropes. It scares me but I try to teach them how to climb up and then help them climb down. Going down is always harder.

Starting Piano Lessons

Lilia started up piano lessons with Grandma R this week. She usually has 15 minute lesson but they went for 30 minutes. She had so much fun. The spider song I heard at least three times. They reviewed a lot of things and Lilia is still talking about her lesson.

Grandma asked Lilia to find the white key between two black keys. She found the white key with her right hand. Then she asked if she could find another. Lilia found it with the other hand. Grandma asked if she could find another white key between two black keys. Lilia said, "But grandma, I don't have any more hands."

We are so thankful for grandma!
