I'm really hoping that Easter will be sunny.
I really think that this lack of sun has taken it's toll on all of our attitudes around here- especially mine!
I'm really happy that last Sunday before the gloominess started I let the kids talk me into taking them to a park. I told them I'd take them after I finished up a sewing project that I had been dying to try. Here's a little peek of it.
I've been wanting to try and make a Pillow Case Dress for some time and when I was going through the kids' closet, I found a set of pillowcases we had gotten from my Grandma for our wedding. We hadn't used them, they were pretty special. All the time she put into embroidering them. I felt that I needed to save them for something special. I couldn't think of anything more special than making one of them into a dress for Audrey:)
So after finishing that project up I figured I'd better do what I said I'd do. I really didn't want to drive far with our big beast sucking the gas down like she does, so we went to the town 6 miles away and went to their dinky little park. The kids had a blast! Here are some pictures from our little outing at the Windmill Park.
The Merry-Go-Round was by far the favorite! I was getting dizzy just watching them and felt like loosing my lunch after pushing it around.
What's a trip to the park without a little swingin'
Does this make me a mean mom? That I take pictures of them when they get hurt? Sorry, I just love their expressions!
That's my kid!
