Here comes the sun, doo-dee-doo-dee-doo doo doo

We spent yesterday afternoon in the backyard, sitting under the apple tree. I used to do that when Aspen was a fetus. I think she enjoys it more now that she's out of the womb.

Maddie was with us too, moving from sun to shade and back again. She also barked her pants off at the poor lawn care service on the other side of the fence. Apparently she doesn't like weed wackers.

Lest we found ourselves bored, I read to Aspen from "Pride and Prejudice," as well as from the critically acclaimed novelette, "Kevin's Seaside Picnic." It's a lesser-known work of fiction that is sure to captivate your wee one as well. We found it at D.I. for 50 cents.

There was lots of grass plucking and eating, lots of people-watching, and lots of giggles. It was a beautiful 1.5 hours spent at the PH.

How have you been enjoying the sunshine lately? Today we walked to the grocery store and then ate icee pops in the backyard. It was Aspen's first experience and I have to say it was a smashing success.


  1. Its so nice its warm weather! Bailee & I have been taking walks the past two days around our house & down on the path. Wednesday after I worked I planted the rose bushes they gave me for mothers day & even weeded my garden area. The picture of you two is adorable! Yeah for sunshine!

  2. I miss my long walks to the gas station, grocery store and just enjoying being outside. I cannot wait to be able to do that again. It's kind of hard to enjoy walks when I can barely make it up the street without my contractions kicking in. We will just have to wait a few more weeks to enjoy that part of Summer again. We have let Jesse run outside in the grass with his ball and he thinks that that is pretty awesome!

  3. You guys are so cute, I'm loving the pictures. I just got done reading Pride and Prejudice. I was obsessed with it for a week. Have you seen the bbc movie of it? It's the best.


Thanks for stopping by!
