Spring Break - Family Photos...Attempted!

I thought taking photos with a toddler would get easier over time.  Not so much...












Sometimes you have to lose the kid!



Date night!

Spring Break - Kites Over Clarksburg

Last weekend, we attended the 5th annual Kites Over Clarksburg event, which was a festival at the neighborhood next to our own.  When we first arrived, only a few kites were flying in the sky, but soon enough the sky was dotted with kites of every color and size!  Luckily, I remembered earlier in the week to swing by the store and pick up a kite for Georgia to fly.  Options were limited, so Cinderella got to come home with us!

Thankfully, Daddy is a kite flying expert, so he got our kite up and flying right away.

Where did it go????








Fly!

Not long after we arrived, Georgia spotted her favorite playground set and demanded "Over there!"  























We had to drag Georgia out of the playground kicking and screaming because she wanted to spend the entire day just swinging and sliding away!

Spring Break - Part 2

Continuing on from yesterday's post... Georgia enjoyed the week visiting with Mimi and playing around the house.




Thanks Auntie Elaine & Uncle Ray for the new outfits and books!







Georgia's newest obsession is "Finding Nemo" - she could watch it again and again and again!  The first time we put it on, we figured she'd maybe sit for a few minutes to watch it.  Nope - she sat through the entire thing and promptly declared, "Again - more Nemo!" when it finished.  I'm fairly certain she could watch it everyday.  She loves pointing out all the animals and dancing along to the music.  Mimi had never seen it, so Georgia introduced it to her.  She jumped right up during her favorite scene with the turtles!











Thanks, Auntie Lisa for the Easter package.  Georgia pulled everything out of the bag and declared it, "Awesome!"  She stamped everything she could get her hands on for the next two days with her new crown stamp.

Hugs for Mimi









On Friday night, we made Daddy pretend to be a pony and Georgia loved getting rides all over the house!

Spring Break - Part 1

Ahhhh - Spring Break!  A time to relax, get outside and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.  Oh wait, it's still practically winter here in suburban DC.  We did manage to squeeze in some outdoor time this week but it was few and far between.  Thankfully the snow from Monday melted away and the sunshine (albeit cold sunshine) returned for most of the week. 

Georgia spent the beginning of the week in daycare so that I could start test driving all sorts of SUVs as we start our hunt for a new vehicle.  Surprisingly, even daycare complained that Georgia was "not quite herself" this week.  That was putting it nicely!  She was a maniac most days.  Nick finally got to the ROOT of the problem mid-week when he discovered that the princess had not 1, not 2, not 3 or 4 or even 5, but 8 teeth coming in all at one time!  Her gums were all swollen and bruised, so we started giving her round the clock Tylenol and orajel to help with the pain.  She now begs us "medicine!"

Luckily, Mimi showed up mid-week and was a great distraction to help keep Georgia's mind off her new chompers.  Lots of packages arrived in the mail throughout the week, which also helped keep Georgia occupied, busy and entertained.





Thanks Auntie Sherrie, Uncle Ken and Abby --- Georgia loves coloring her new glitter pages!



Georgia wasn't the only one to get some packages delivered this week.  Nick got a delivery too... his new beer fridge for the basement!










On Thursday, we introduced Mimi to the new Bennigan's in town.  Georgia loved the big girl cup that the waitress brought to her!


















Mimi and Georgia have been all over the house from upstairs to the basement playing all day long...









Peekaboo!
