Our weekend

On Friday night, our community had an ice cream social at the pool. After an early dinner, we went for a treat and a swim.  photo IMG_2370_zps6a595d79.jpg

Will just had to know what Amelia's tasted like.  Oh, brothers. photo IMG_2372_zps3bde3502.jpg

Will is starting to do some legit swimming without his floats, but still keeps them on most of the time.

And this girl.  Growing by leaps and bounds every day.  She already has quite a vocabulary (hi, bye, Will, Mama, Dada, kitty, quack quack, cracker, uh oh, NO!).  She loves to dance and even grabs both my hands so we can do it together.  She can follow simple commands (get your baby, get your shoes).  She is starting to come down stairs like a big girl (absolutely refuses to come down backwards), kicks a ball like Mia Hamm, and LOVES to read.

We adore her.

Since a fancy deck is a few years into the future, I convinced Mike to make me a patio.  Isn't he the sweetest?

Will supervised from the pool.

Sunday was gross and rainy.  We started the day off with puzzle time in the morning.

"No pictures, Mommy!"

Later, Will helped me make some red play dough.

It was Amelia's first time playing with it.

I love making play dough when it's all warm and soft and squishy.  It smells like my childhood.

Love these kiddos and our cozy weekends at home.

Oh memories of Grandmama making her homemade playdough! Cream of tarter and food coloring are the only parts I remember. And then using it for tea parties and stuff on rainy days on her side.
