Our Friday started off pretty rough! We were supposed to have a kite playdate the park with a picnic. It was storming this morning, so they moved the playdate to McDonald's. It is a good 30 to 40 minute drive for us and I really didn't want to drive that far in the storm. The girls were so upset we didn't get to go to the playdate!
The storm didn't last long, so I felt really bad we didn't go to the playdate.
We ended up having a really busy and fun day despite the rough start.
We took our bean plants out of the window and transferred them to cups. Lyric and Cadence were excited to work on their bean plants, but Story said she just wanted to let hers die. We all wrote our names on our cups, so we would know which was ours. It was really cool to see how much the bean plants had grown in their baggies. We loaded them up to pull over near the hose.
It wasn't far, but Baby Cadence decided she needed to hitch a ride.Story Bell wanted to join in on the watering, but Big Sister said she had it under control!
Story decided not to let hers die after all.
Story got her two all planted and watered and ready to put in the window sill.
Miss Lyric got some pots for her birthday that she painted. She planted some flowers in them today, too.
After all of the gardening, we were hungry! We decided to head to the park for a picnic.
A bee decided to join us. He kept landing on flappers ear. Story Bell wasn't taking any chances she hid under the table.
Miss Lyric enjoyed our picnic.
While we were eating we saw a lady feeding a squirrel from her hand. Mama didn't want to try that, but we did throw this little guy some of our sandwich.
The girls LOVED the tire swing! Lyric, Story and Tris, Story's new friend, are seen here. Isn't Tris just the cutest!
Baby Cadence did a little driving. Look at those lips doing driving noises.
We asked Tris to scoot over so Baby Cadence could join in. We only had two pieces of bread left after I made our sandwiches this morning. I brought them on our picnic so the girls could feed the ducks. This is always a good idea in theory, but when it comes to actually feeding them it never seems to work out!
Baby Cadence decided to get the bread ready while big sisters were swinging.
They were taking quite awhile on the swing, so she decided to have a little snack.
We decided to feed another squirrel.Feeding the ducks started off okay... But there were just so many of them and everyone in the park seemed hungry today!
HELP!MAMA, GET 'EM!
Don't worry, Big Sister is here.
We decided to walk down and look at the water... the ducks decided to follow.
Story and Cadence were not too happy about that!
Lyric was sitting near a shallow part in the water. She saw a "cool" rock. I suggested she take her shoes off and wade in to get it.
"What, are you serious?"Well, you can't just wade in for the rock. If you are going in you've got to check it all out.And of course, Little Sister has to join you.
Baby sister can't be left out! (She only lasted about 30 seconds!).We had fun sending leaves down the currents.
Girls try not to get too wet I didn't bring any towels...Yea, right! Boy, I'm glad I didn't get pulled over on the way home! It was there idea to strip, not mine;-)Yes, they are in their birthday suits!This afternoon the girls wanted to fly the kite we were going to fly at our playdate. We told them there were too many trees around the house, so they would have to wait until we went to the park.
So we improvised. Yes, that is an HEB bag tied to yarn.
Yes, we are a little ghetto around here. Yes, it satisfied their need for a kite.
Well, that is our Friday in a nutshell.
