hummingbirds, shirts & straight hair

Clarissa loves the back yard. She wants to eat every meal and snack outside. TOO CUTE! When we were sitting out back the other day a humming bird came right up and started drinking from the feeder, and what do you know... I was ready!

Paul & Dodo sent the kids new shirts. Kurtis got one too, but it wasn't pink...

Crazy hair day came again! Straight hair. Who is this kid?

good activities...

Lila and Clarissa LOVE the kiddie pool. They don't care if it's 60* out, they want to play in the water. So, even though we haven't had many hot days yet this spring, we have still had quite a few kiddie pool days.

Clarissa likes to wear a hat. I think it keeps the wind from blowing all that hair in her face. Here she is sporting a new birthday dress (and hat.)

Lila on the other hand doesn't care if her hair is in her face.

After the girls turned into ice-cycles and we got dressed again Jeff & Lila went for a bike ride.

Good times. I can't wait for it actually be hot enough to play in the water!

Pink Glitter Rocks!

This is also on Clarissa's birthday. She got this stellar outfit from the Wiist girls!

Happy Snowy Birthday

We have a crew of hummingbirds that have been frequenting our feeder but I was surprised to see them on this snowy day (Clarissa's 2nd birthday)!
