Princess Tea Party Picnic

Claire's school is closed this week, so we invited a friend over for a playdate this morning.  Here they are enjoying their snack as a princess tea party picnic.

Maybe not so lady-like.  :)

Taking turns pouring each other's "tea" (juice)

Memorial Day weekend

It was warm enough this weekend to break out the sprinkler in the backyard (finally!).

Practicing his tae kwon doe in the water - side kick

Side block

Trying to get a drink (by the way, the water was f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g)

Cuteness at the sprinkler

Leaping the sprinkler

Caught mid-air, hamming it up for the camera.

Sibling love

Yes, she IS licking him in this one.  :)

A few days later in her mermaid costume.  I had to put this in because it reminded me SO much of the face I used to make when I had my picture taken while lying on the couch.  I never wanted my picture taken, but she loves it and wanted a picture of her new outfit (complete with clip-on earrings).

Mother's Day weekend
