Sun & Fun at the Zoo!

Today was a perfect, sunny 60 degree afternoon at the zoo. And all the animals were outside enjoying the day too. We saw the zebras up close. The elephants were running around and playing in the waterfalls. The giraffes were frolicking and running around. The penguins were splishing and splashing in their pool. It was a perfect day spent stretching our legs and seeing all the animals.

A Sister Story...

This morning before breakfast the girls were playing together laughing and screaming and running and giggling. Then it happened. Sierra hit Audrey and in retaliation, Audrey screamed and immediately pulled out a handful of Sierra's hair!

But, Sierra didn't cry at all. As a matter of fact, I didn't even notice Sierra was hurt until I saw her hair caught in Audrey's hand!

After the fight, Audrey apologized and the girls hugged and kissed. Sierra asked if she could hold Audrey and that's when I snapped this cute picture.

Our little biker girl...

Sierra loves her new bicycle. And, she picked out a cute butterfly helmet to go with it. It's been colder over the last few days and she wasn't able to ride, but this afternoon it warmed up! Take a peek at Sierra in her new gear!

The best $7 ever spent..

While shopping with the girls this afternoon, daddy proves to be a push over. Both girls went bananas over a cinderella baby doll and carriage display in the store and he could never just buy one, so when he discovered the same toy in the clearance aisle, he snagged one for each of his darling girls for $7 each! Now, daddy may be wrapped around his girls little fingers but at least he's frugal too. Thanks honey!

Audrey finds her own ladybug!

When Audrey found her own ladybug, she was sooooooo happy!

Sierra Gets a Bike for Spring!

With the weather warming up, Victor decided it was time to invest in a bike for Sierra. After all, it's Spring time!  He and the girls went shopping, Sierra picked her favorite one and took it home!  After about 5 minutes of coaching, Sierra caught on like a pro! Below is a video showing Sierra riding her bike and loving it!  She loves it so much, she asks her daddy if she can sleep with her bike in her bed!  Audrey was practicing riding her tricycle close by as Daddy filmed.

More photos to come soon...

Sierra's Playdate with Raja

This Saturday Sierra had a play date with her friend Raja from providence. Her mom is friends with our neighbor, Ms. Justine. Sierra was looking forward to her time with Raja to run outside, play in the sand box, dress up as princesses, and pretend with her doll house and train set! So much to do and so little time.

On such a beautiful Spring day, we decided to venture off to the zoo. All our favorite animals were there: the red river hogs, elephants, giraffes, seals, moon bears, red pandas, snow leopard, buffalo, created cranes, monkeys, emu, camels and kangaroo! But we always have the most fun in the backyard and treehouse! Below are a few photos of our cool, spring morning. Enjoy!

Sierra's 2nd week of school...

Every day Sierra is excited to go to school. She has made friendships with several little girls and enjoys the activities in her class. This month they are learning about the seasons and the earth. Practicing recycling and learning why it's important to conserve and reuse things. Part of the fun of going to school is picking out cute outfits to wear each day. Today Sierra chose a cute outfit Gigi sent her for Easter! Below is a photo of Sierra ready to start her day. Thanks Gigi!
