The weather was calling for rain and gloom for the whole weekend and it pretty much delivered as predicted. We tried to squeeze in a festival the early part of Saturday (the forecast called for rain much later in the day) but it started to rain just as we arrived. But, it was just a drizzle so we toughed it out for an hour. But, then it became a downpour and we decided that was enough.
They had an awesome face painter there. I was shocked Miss H wanted her face covered but she was certain she wanted to be a rainbow cat.
Her and her best friend posed together. (Miss H was almost unrecognizable with the make-up on. It took a little getting use to).
She kept it on for the whole day!
Then on Sunday, it was still gloomy. We headed to swim lessons and Miss H jumped in, dove to the bottom to get a ring and practiced swimming on her back. These lessons have gone much better than lessons in the past.
Miss H liked my dog shirt so much that she found her own so we could match
Kerry and I love that Miss H loves to read and her new favorite thing is to be the teacher. We had to ‘pay attention’ and ‘listen’ as she went through the book. She did a great job of showing us the pictures too!
I got my super nice totally unexpected Mother’s Day gift earlier this week when Verizon accidentally activated my brand new iPhone and thus making my current iPhone inoperable. A very confused Verizon customer service rep thought I was truly clueless when I explained there was no iPhone 5 on my account, I just wanted my iPhone 4 to make calls.
We decided to head to Shlagel Farms today to meet up with Mom, Leigh and Chip to pick strawberries and it was perfect timing. The weather was a little overcast but no rain spoiled our trip. We got lots of berries and even ran into some friends.
Miss H remembered the swing set from last year and was quick to meet a friend to join her on the double swing. They got it really high!
Then, it was off to the dog wash. Miss S really needed a bath and we decided it was better to let her soak some place that was not one of our bathrooms. She was not a big fan of the whole experience but the rest of us had fun. And, she smells a lot better now.
Speaking of Miss S- she does not like the vacuum.
But she does like empty plastic bottles.
After all this excitement, we decided to head to a Japanese Steakhouse not far from our house. Miss H loves ‘food as entertainment’ and Kerry’s dad had never experienced the fire, the volcano or the flying shrimp. Everyone was full and happy. And, Miss H did a pretty good job with the ‘chompsticks.’
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
