A Day At The Museum

Well so much for Spring - we had snow showers this morning! We have made the best of the not so Spring like weather and spent a day at The Children's Museum with Lucy's buddies Eddie and Genevieve. Lucy loved it all! She loved the mailboxes, the cash register and driving the bus! A good time was had by all and we know that we will be outside soon enough!!!

Mailing letters
Driving the bus

Some serious shopping

I love this cash register!

A Minnesota Rite Of Spring

You know Spring has finally arrived in Minnesota when people start taking down their outside Christmas lights! I know it sounds strange but it is true. It is always too cold, snowy, or icy to safely take down any of our lights that we have hanging on the trees. Unlike most Minnesotans though, we do not turn our lights on every evening until the spring thaw- a ritual that I will never understand as long as I live here!

We took the lights down today and Lucy insisted on helping. When she saw her Daddy get on a ladder she ran inside to retrieve her step stool. She then set out to help with the lights! She figured out the real ladder was a little more exciting than her step stool. Hope you are all enjoying a Spring thaw as well!

What's Daddy doing up there?
I'm going to get my step stool and help him.

Seems I can't get as high up as Daddy!

Hey Daddy how do I get up there?

Now I get it!

Here I go!

All finished!

At Last!

We have had a LONG, COLD Winter!!! The past few days the weather finally broke and the temperatures were in the high 60's!!!! It felt tropical. Lucy enjoyed every minute outside. She ran to her bike when I brought it outside and gave it a hug and a kiss like it was a long lost friend. She has actually mastered the art of pedaling. She visited the swing set and flew down the slide - a good day was had by all!!! Hope you are all enjoying some warmer weather as well. Here's hoping for an early spring!

Back on my bike!

I've missed the swing set!

I love this weather!!!!!

Just a few spilled!

Don't worry - I'll clean them up

Makeup Madness

Lucy loves to mimic most everything I do. She especially loves getting ready with me in the morning. Instead of sharing all of my things I put together a little bag for her with makeup samples, lotions, etc. She loves having her very own bag of goodies. She knows just what to do with all of the contents - a bit scary:) I tell her that a little bit goes a long way - but the more the better for Lucy! I think she needs a lesson or two in makeup application - but that's okay for right now!

I just love eyeshadow!
The more the better!

Oh My!

Now for a little blush

I almost forgot to moisturize!

The end result!
