Feelin' groovy!














OK, so the bug left my body as quickly as he came and I was able to enjoy the BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT, SUNNY day with Lily yesterday. We literally did not come inside for 7 hours straight (except to do some quick diaper changes).

We had friends over in the morning and we walked with the kids up to the park. Then, we went in the backyard and played on the swingset for awhile. Lily ate her lunch "picnic" style, and we stopped over at the neighbor's house so Lily could pet their cute little bunny rabbit Mr. Beans. Lily is SUCH an animal lover, so she was in heaven over the fact that a fuzzy little creature actually sat in her lap. She is so used to kittens and puppies running from her. When it came time to ask Lily if she was ready for a nap, she just laid down on the porch and said, "I sweep outside today." It was so great to enjoy all the fresh air! Lily was just so happy! For awhile she just sat on her little chair on the porch yelling at the neighbors "Come over and see me evewee one!" For a child who claims to "yuv winta" me thinks she is a pretty big fan of the warm stuff too!

And, to totally change the subject: to my fellow American Idol watchers -- wasn't tonight's show great?!? I loved it and thought that everybody (minus Jordin, surprisingly) did an incredible job with Bon Jovi's songs. I am so curious to see what TWO people get the boot tomorrow, I think it will be kinda sad to see anyone go at this point.

Well, thank you for all your well wishes on Sunday. I am so happy I was only down and out for one day. It stormed again today, but we are supposed to have nothin' but sun for the rest of the week, so I don't expect to be in the house much...lots of late night blogging for me!

That is so funny she wanted to lay down on the porch, too cute! Glad to hear you are feeling better over there. Let's hope the warm weather sticks around longer for everyone's sake.

Glad it was a quick down-time.

Love those photos!

I have to say I was pretty surprised last night. I wasn't so sure Jordin could have an 'off' night but she did. She's m'girl!

The beautiful, sunny weather does make you come alive doesn't it? Did she actually "sweep" outside? So darn cute!

That sounds like the perfect day. I am so glad the bunny sat in her lap -- I can just imagine the pure joy Lily was feeling.

There's nothing like those perfect, sunny, outside days. I love "sweeping outside."

American Idol was awesome last night. I am really surprised at how well they did Bon Jovi songs. Poor Jordin. I don't want to see her go. She is still so amazing. I LOVED Blake's version of Shot Through The Heart. I actually liked Phil Stacey too, and I'm not really a fan of his.

Emmie said...
