Monday Rose and I headed to a local country store where she loves to push the ‘baby’ carts! I feel very fortunate to live where we have pretty easy access to lots of fun and healthy food choices. Since it was kind of rainy we spent most of the morning playing inside, but that does not stop Rose from having a really good time.
Tuesday Rose had her weekly riding lesson. I am not sure if she loves the riding or the ice pop afterwards more…but either way she seems to really enjoy it.
After Rose's lesson we got to hang out with cousin Bruce, can't believe this little guy is already 3 weeks old!
(look at their little noses touching...Rose loves her cousin!)
Wednesday was a beautiful day! We got to play at two parks. Rose and I refer to the local parks as the ‘big’ park and the ‘baby’ park. We stopped at the big park first to feed the ducks and play a bit. This park is usually pretty crowded and Rose doesn't enjoy all the rowdiness of older kids, so after a bit she asked to go to the baby park.
This park is just the perfect size for Rose to explore and usually there are only a few other little kids for Rose to meet.
On a side note: since I am now gone during most bedtimes, each week I record myself reading a few books for Rose to watch at bedtime. By now there are over 10 different videos to pick from. On Wednesday she got the iPad out and went to the video she wanted and found the matching book to follow along with a story :)
Thursday we again made our stops at the local parks. Rose had seen ducklings on Wednesday and was asking to see them again. Luckily we found them right away and they were swimming!
Friday has become our farmer’s market day with nana. Due to an accident my mom is getting a new car. No one was hurt and the accident wasn't even her fault ;) Right now nana has a loner and Rose LOVED all the buttons…she even learned how to hold the brake down and push the ‘start’ button…not sure that’s a good thing.
There's my silly little girl who wants to wear her daddy's shirt after bathtime :)
This weekend was GREAT! Rose and I never left our home and Justin only went out for a little bit. After all the business of last weekend and the usual week business, it was really nice to just spend time together taking it easy. That doesn't mean we didn't have LOTS of fun...
