Playground warriors!

After 5 days of essentially non-stop rain, the sun finally came out yesterday and we took advantage of the nice weather by hitting the park with Aunt Jill and Uncle Aaron. We'd never been to this particular park before and it was great - so many different play structures to choose from! Charlie and Lily had a blast!

Charlie and Uncle Aaron rock climbing.
Lots of things to spin = a happy Charlie!

Slides! Lily loved crawling into and through the tunnel, but she'd wait at the end every time for Aunt Jill to pull her out.
Bye, park!

The week's lesson focused on the numbers 4 and 5. We didn't do anything too exciting this week - we played our numbers-in-eggs game again, practiced counting our fingers and toes and made counting hand prints for art. We also remembered JW Blakey this week. JW was the son of a friend of mine who passed away on May 20, 2010 at the age of 20 months. Charlie and Lily wore blue on Friday, the one year anniversary of JW's passing, to remember the sweet boy who was taken too soon. (Like "Justice's Stocking" on Facebook for information on what is being done in memory of JW.)

Nana came over for her usual Friday morning visit, bringing with her a new llama book (Llama, Llama Red Pajama) for Charlie and Lily. Lily enjoyed snuggling with Nana and her stuffed llama to hear the story.

Smile! The sticker on Charlie and Lily's Friday morning banana said "Place on forehead and smile" so naturally that's what we did :)

This is crazy Lily after lunch yesterday. She makes an epic mess with every meal, rubbing food in her hair and throwing things around. She's insane!

But we love her anyway ;)
