Yay for Daddy!

Everyday about 11:30 Chris walks through the door to the excitement of both Mommy and Alyssa (Evan is working on it). I'm exicted because, well, I love to see Chris, but it also provides a bit of a break in the middle of the day. Alyssa is excited because she will soon be on the basement floor playing something with Daddy that Mommy never plays; Imaginary dragons just aren't my thing! Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day so we switched things up a bit and went to a local garden for a picnic. We set up camp next to a babbling brook which quickly became much more imporant to Alyssa than eating lunch. We were both certain the brook would win and she would go home soaking wet, but after a few VERY close calls, she remained dry...well, mostly.

The setting for our picnic.

Alyssa checking out the water before Chris scared her into believing the "fishies are going to bite your toes."

Oh the giggles!

Chris checking it out for himself.

Evan checking it out...

...and deciding it's too cold!

Thanks for meeting us for lunch Chris...I love that.


  1. How cute! I like the pictures you chose. This will be fun to read! Love you,

  2. Yea! I love seeing new pics of you guys. I love the boys and their green shirts. =) Isn't it nice to have a mini-"date" with Chris in the middle of the day? I don't get down to Jim's office nearly enough. You've inspired me. That will be on the calendar for next week, for sure!
