i love rainy days...it's the perfect time to get things done inside & when the rain goes away & the sun is shining, you can go outside & enjoy the outdoors & gallivant around town w/out having to carry an umbrella. today was all about cleaning...Thursday's usually is my preferred day to clean & do laundry. it's was also a perfect day for Corinne to hang out in her jammies. LOVE!
while i cleaned, she played w/ her activity books, watched a movie & played w/ her barbies. she would even help me do the laundry, but that only lasted a short while. not a lot of photos snapped today, 127 to be exact...
a chilly, rainy day
off to school he goes...
washing bed linens & Crush is quite comfy on our bed
the man doing a little work before he heads out the door
makes me so happy!!!
Corinne playing on the kitchen floor

working on laundry
i REALLY need to spend a day or two, reorganizing the Corinne's closet. think i'll start that up in May
i must have windows open while i clean...just makes the house smell even fresher
made up the kids beds
a squeaky clean bathroom
piles of picture frames & wall hangings sitting against the wall upstairs, ready to be stored away or replenished with new pictures
new pillow for rocking chair...Target has all their outdoor stuff on sale this week
organizing all the baskets of books & weeding out library books that are due in a few days
we snacked on grapes, blueberry's & blackberry's while we colored in her Olivia coloring book
researched how to grow blackberry's...we need to grow our own
after a weeks worth of working out a the gym, my abs, arms & legs have been so sore. i finally pulled out a yoga dvd & did some stretching. felt so so so good & i was in good company (the Barbie car ;))
Tim & Ty arrive home from the market
swing...i remember when he was so scared to jump off a moving swing & look at him now? he's so proud! i can't wait to scrap the series of photos now
after dinner, Tim & the kids went right back outside, leaving me sitting at the table along...the nerve, lol! we are growing asparagus back there & i think this is the 2nd year for them. more & more are popping up, can't wait til they are ready for harvesting.
a few of the neighborhood kids playing out back
while Corinne is bathing, Ty plays w/ Tim's model ships on the floor... w/ sound affects & all
story time for Corinne on the tablet.
favorite part of the day was how yummy Mrs. Meyers products smell, horseback riding w/ Corinne (her riding on my bake, lol), spending more time w/ Corinne & happy she didn't cry about anything (that was a relief).
