Despite this morning's freezing temperatures, today turned out to be a nice day. After we got Caleb on the school bus, the girls and I enjoyed some of our favorite PBS Kids shows (now made more pleasant by the digital reception we now get on our new TV!), did a little cleaning and had fun playing. Around 11:00 my friend dropped off her little boy to watch and since he and Camille pretty much entertained themselves playing with Caleb's cars and Chloe took a nap (miracle of miracles!)I had a little time to myself.
After lunch we whipped up a batch of cupcakes and then headed to the park. Another friend - who has five kids of her own - was babysitting another family - with four kids - and took them all to the park by our house. Talk about a brave woman! Anyway, after we all played for a while, we all came back to our house and ate the cupcakes. It was nice to be able to share the cupcakes so I didn't feel the temptation to eat a ridiculous amount of them myself! Everyone left right before Caleb got home, so we had a quiet afternoon of playing in the back yard. Caleb and Camille played nicely together for most of it which made it especially pleasant!
Here are some pictures of Caleb all decked out in Duke blue. This was supposed to be a group shot of all three, but only one was cooperating!
Doesn't Caleb have the cutest freckles? We call them "sun kisses."
Doing some heavy thinking...
Going down the slide that's WAY too small! I pulled this little slide out for Chloe, only the wrong kids showed interest in it!
Here Camille gets in on the sliding fun!
Look who decides to show up to play!
A fun little wrestling match
Camille thinks all of this is funny
So does Chloe!
I'd write more but the baby just woke up and I need to get her back down to bed!
