Corn on the Cob

Today was a perfect day to be outside! Grandma, Grandpa, and I worked and Alegria played:





Playing on the tractor (as long as it's not turned on!):



Running free as a bird in the pasture:

Stealing Grandpa's hat as he brings the tarp to place under the porch swing:




While Grandma worked on the lawn and Grandpa worked on the front porch, I stained the porch swing that had been weathered and stripped of most of its paint. I was able to finish most of it by the time I absolutely had to go inside and get Alegria to nap. I took a nap, too, and at about 3:30, Grandma came to wake me up so that we could go to the mall to get pedicures. YAY!

It had been so long since I'd had a pedicure! In fact, the last time I got a pedicure was when we were still in Montana and I was pregnant with Alegria! Boy, was I due for a pedicure! It sure felt nice to be pampered! I wish I could get a pedicure every month!

Apparently, Alegria did well with just Grandpa and Kellen while Grandma and I were away...thank goodness!

When we got back, we played while Grandma got dinner ready.

Alegria discovered that the side table is just her size:



At dinner, Alegria had something she'd never had before...corn on the cob! She liked it...


...at first, but then she didn't want anything to do with it. Fickle child!

After dinner, she tried putting a diaper on Big Bear:

And then once I had her ready for bed and I was getting ready myself, Alegria was looking at Daddy's picture and kissing it...and then I noticed her signing "I love you!" She can't spread her fingers to form the "I" "L" and "U" necessary to sign "I love you," but we've been practicing and I could tell that was what she was intending to do! Luckily, she did it for me again to get a video of it! What a sweet little girl!


Now she's in bed and I'm off to write to Cameron.

I hope you've all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, thinking about not only those brave soldiers who died for our sake, but also remembering those loved ones who have passed on before us.

Have a good night!
