One Nice Weekend

This past weekend was ridiculously beautiful and warm, and after all of our cold weather and snow, we were more than ready. After a long walk on Saturday morning, the Army Man washed my car (isn't he nice!) and Laura played in a patch of dirt that is awaiting sod. The water from the car washing started to run into her dirt, and before we knew it, she was splashing around in the mud. She had so much fun, and if she was happy about getting dirty, I wasn't going to stop her. Even better, it distracted her from her recently acquired skinned knees, which due to the copious bleeding, did actually merit Band-Aids. All of the heat and exercise was too much for Moxie, who spent most of the weekend in this spot, stealing all of the air conditioning. And for your enjoyment and personal edification, I have some of Laura's early morning teachings to share. On the way to school, she told me:

Trees and bushes are living things, and they live outside. Humans are living things, and they live inside houses. If humans don't want to live in a house, they buy a tent.

Really cute pictures of your daughter and your exhausted puppy.

I bet tent sales have really gone up in this economy, too.

Laura looks adorable (she's actually matching!). I love the floppy hat and sunglasses. I'm glad you guys had nice weather for once, she looks like she had so much playing outside. It was warm and sunny for a day here, and now it's back to cold rain.

Nothing like a little mud to play in! And Moxie is one smart cookie to hog the air vent!
