Dear Blog... March 18, 2009
I am so sorry I have neglected you this last week and a half. The weather here was nasty and then we had company. I really should still be ignoring you and instead cleaning my house, but alas I have missed you too much.
Please forgive me and let these photos taken at the Arboretum yesterday be token of my love and devotion.
One of my dear friends from home drove over to spend a few days with us. We had so much fun. We both have toddlers at the moment (she is about to welcome her second in a few months) and our visits are so different than they used to be. When I first moved to Dallas her visits were filled with busy days of shopping with stops at all the fun stores like DSW, TJ MAXX and the like. Now her visits are filled with meeting the girls from playgroup, singing "The Wheels On The Bus", (not sure why the Princess is so obsessed with that song as of late) and this time we even made a trip to the Arboretum. We were bold and daring to brave the spring break crowds, but we did wait until later in the day and it was not so bad.
Her little boy is so cute. He is a serious little fellow at times, but had a ball running around and playing in the beautiful weather.
I had to strap the Princess in the stroller to keep her from running off while I grabbed a few photos of this cutie. How could I resist those big beautiful eyes?
These little cheeks are just so sweet, he will have to avoid "Great Aunt Mildred" at the family reunions as I am sure she will have to pinch them.
I was amazed at how well he took direction. He must have learned that from his mother....
I just love the Arboretum, we would take a few photos and then let the children play for a while, and repeat the process. It helped burn off some energy and we were able to catch some sweet moments.
The Thatch house was locked and little guy did not like that one bit. He kept going to the door and trying to get in.
The Princess tried to unlock the door, and was trying to explain to our Guy why they could not get in. It was really cute to see them conversing. They acted just like siblings.
Thanks so much J and J for coming out to visit we had a great time and we hope that you did too. We are looking forward to your new addition.
