One thing I have learned since living in Tennessee is that when Spring hits, spend every minute you can enjoying it. Before you know it you won't be able to leave the confines of your air-conditioned home. Last week had some of the most incredible weather. I thought it was about time for another Lydia day. (You will probably have to click on the collage to see any of our activities in any detail.) After taking Lydia to yoga class, we had a picnic at the park, along with a treat from the ice cream man. We spent some time smelling the flowers and picking the dandelions. I took Lydia to pick out a new pair of shoes and her very own soccer ball. She starts YMCA soccer pretty soon. We practiced in the backyard and I was expecting her to trip all over the ball, but she must have picked up some athletic prowess from Shane because she rocked! I may have a little athlete on my hands.
In the evening we enjoyed some strawberries and blueberries on the porch, waving at neighbors who walked by on their springtime jaunts. Then as a really special treat, I let her stay up later than usual to watch The Little Mermaid. - For the record, I loath Ariel. Lydia is obsessed and I am close to chucking all 12 of her Ariel books in hopes that I can go one night without reading them to her. Also, of all the Disney Princesses, Ariel is the worst. Immature, rebellious, she chooses to forever leave her world and family to be with a man she has never met. And the kicker....gets married at 16. Um, that might describe my worst nightmare for Lydia's future. Why can't she like Belle or Mulan? I could handle them. I can't believe I am even discussing this.
Anyway, the day was fabulous. We both had a great time. Check out the video to see a little glimpse into our day. Happy Spring!
