I had no idea that getting a kitchen play set for Ava meant that I would have to clean up TWO kitchens every night! The amount of dishes, utensils, pots, pans, and fake food that Ava manages to scatter around our house is ridiculous! I laugh everytime I find a hamburger patty under the couch, or a fried egg in our bed. It's almost like a game to see what food items I can locate when I sweep our floors.
Today, she set up her table and "bench" like she was having a picnic. I really enjoyed the fact that she put a banana and a bunch of grapes in the coffee pot. Even with all of the fake food she has, today all she wanted to do was chew on a piece of cheese. Anyone who knows me, will know that this could be a sign that she is definitely MY daughter! :) And to make it a little more sweet, she was saying a big ol' "Cheeeeese!" as I was attempting to take her picture.
It was a beautiful day here in Minnesota...most of the snow has melted from our front yard. I am quite happy to see the brown, mushy grass, though...spring is really, truly almost here! The next thing we need is a good rain to wash all of the winter guck away. And THEN, we can get busy planting flowers and enjoying the sunshine.
Ava and Scott did spend a fair amount of time outside today. Scott was working on a truck, and Ava had a blast in the backyard playing in her little house, pulling the wagon around, and creating chalk designs all over the sidewalk. Needless to say, she fell asleep right away tonight. Fresh air to the rescue!
Northern MN is supposed to be getting snow tomorrow, but I am crossing my fingers and toes that it misses the Twin Cities completely. I need the blue skies and sunshine...winter needs to be done!
