Doug's sister came this past weekend. She is a senior nursing student attending college about 5 hours from our home. Charissa was so happy that "My A-A" came to see her (and her parents loved visiting, too!).
On Friday we all went to the park. We have a playgroup that meets Friday mornings. My friend Angela and her daughter were there.
Every article of clothing Charissa owns is from this sweet little cheeseball. It's an ENORMOUS blessing and I thank the Lord every day! (Well, at least once a week...)
A-A spots our daring Charissa.
and down - on top of Mama!
A train track runs right past the park and a big train came by. Brandt wasn't so sure what to make of it.
|"Wow! That thing is loud!"|
|"Uh, Mama? Should I be scared?"|
|"HA! You can't scare me, big 'ol choo-choo! |
Just you try messing with me!"
|"Yep. I really showed him."|
|"Push me willy, willy HIGH, A!"|
That evening, Doug and Andrea both went fishing - and caught fish at the same time! We had them for lunch the next day.
Kitty Clyde was terribly interested in what was going on.
Andrea's was a little bit bigger. I had Doug put his hand down for perspective.
The fish weren't caught in time for dinner, but I made some pork stir-fry and we ate by the pond. Charissa was pretty excited as you can tell.
Then I asked Andrea to take an honest-to-goodness picture of me and Doug together since I'm always behind the camera.
We went back in the house and ate homemade vanilla ice cream to celebrate Auntie A being with us. It was a wonderful visit :-)
We love you, Auntie A!!!
