I went running outside this morning. Oh, and after a week of beautiful Spring weather, today turned blustery, rainy and freezing….which, I guess, is totally Utah Spring weather. ANYHOO, I was pretty depressed when I woke up but running helped. When I got home, we all got to work: weeding, mowing, edging, cleaning, playing, riding bikes, etc. Josh had to run to Home Depot for a bunch of junk. I told the kids after all their work, we would go to the Provo Rec. (All they want to do is swim and I LOVE IT!) So after lunch we went, and we brought Druw and Kyn with us. (Josh was still running a bunch of errands and had too much work or else he would have come.)
Annie’s Star Fish Float. She loves it! Annie is so good at complimenting people. A group of girls had mermaid tails and she was sooooo in love with those tails! She wanted one so bad. She went to ask a little girl if she could wear one and I wouldn’t let her. As we were leaving, she was standing by the pile of mermaid tails on the side of the pool. I told her we had to leave and she said, “But Mom, I need to talk to those girls!” I said “Annie, they won’t let you wear their mermaid tails.” And she said, “No, Mom. I need to tell them their mermaid tails are so beautiful!” What a doll she is!!!!
We came home and made pancakes on this blustery, cold day, with a fire in the fireplace. I must say, I loved it. Here is Emmy Bunyan, eating her gigantic pancake with a gigantic fork. (On our Vegas trip, Josh was teasing Em about being in love with Paul Bunyan and now it has become her new nickname. She fought it as first, as a teasing-victim always does, but now she has embraced it and it’s hilarious.)
