Look what we got in the mail today!

Our shirts for the adoption reunion in September! Our travel group is having our first reunion in Walt Disney World! I was so excited that I asked if I could design some shirts for the trip. We set up a site on cafepress and I think I got a little carried away. You can order shirts, hats, bags, buttons, magnets and more! I was really happy with how they turned out and thought I'd share.

Outside Fun

We took advantage of the beautiful weather we had on Sunday to do some work outside. Hannah had so much fun with water and a bunch of buckets - I should have put her in a bathing suit. She would fill up the buckets and then water the plants around the patio. Sweet and helpful - who could ask for more. Once she was done with the water she wanted to ride around on her scooter, bike, gator, wagon, etc. She briefly tested each one out but I think she just couldn't decide so she just walked around in her helmet. So many transportation options.

Mother, Daughter and Granddaughter dinner.

Last Sunday, we went to a Mother Daughter Dinner at my Mom's church. Hannah was very excited because she got to wear her cherry dress (which she picked out on the Gymboree website herself) and was really well behaved throughout the evening. Any excuse for Hannah to get dressed up - she will take it. The ladies of the church did a good job - it was very nice event and we all had a wonderful time. I like this picture of my Mom and Hannah because it looks like she is telling her a secret.

You may be right, I may be crazy...

Feast your eyes on Chris's Father's Day gift. It is a 1949 Chevy five window pickup truck. He has wanted one for a long time and found this one on craigslist. All I did was give the "nod" for him to buy it. The only stipulation: this truck does not become lawn art. I know, I know, all Chris needed was one more project... but he was so cute and excited when he asked me. He even gave me the "lip". I just could not resist.

This morning

While I was uploading the previous post, I noticed that it had gotten eerily quiet in the living room. Hannah was in the living room. Hmmmm... When I get to the living room, this is what my lovely daughter had done.

She is lucky she is so cute. We are lucky that the marker is washable. And people wonder why I don't post more.

A lovely anniversary weekend

What do you think of our latest yard project? Just kidding, I wish this was our yard. This was taken at the bed and breakfast we stayed at this weekend.

April 23rd was our second family day anniversary and I missed it. :( I was in Connecticut training for my new job. BTW, have I told you that I got a new job? If not, I apologize, and would be glad to fill you in on another blog post. Anyway, since Sunday was also our 12th wedding anniversary, Chris decided to plan a lovely weekend getaway for the three of us. I got back home Friday evening and Saturday morning we got up and went to the Liberty antique show. It is one of my favorite shows because it is the perfect size (not too big not too small) and the quality of the dealers has always been impressive. Hannah had a great time looking at all of the stuff and listened when we told her "to look and not touch" when we were looking at breakable things. We got some nice antique tiles for around the fireplace in Hannah's playroom and some printing letters that we collect. After the show, Chris took me to a wonderful little Bed in Breakfast. He had scheduled a massage for me as well. After the massage we had dinner and then watched 101 Dalmations on our portable DVD player. Hannah even went potty. It was a great day. The next day we had a delicious breakfast and headed to several different farms for their "open houses" where you can go and meet the animals and buy cheeses, wool, pottery, etc. Before the farms opened, we found a cute little park by a stream and fed some over-zealous geese and ducks a handful of cheerios. Overall, I think my and Hannah's favorite part was when the cow licked Daddy's hand. I don't think that was Daddy's favorite part.

I told Chris that he is off-the-hook for Mothers Day. We had a great anniversary weekend.
