This and That!


Monday (President's Day), we spent most of the day at the park. We love going over there to feed the ducks and let the girls play on the enormous (fenced!) playground. The park was packed because of school being out...which actually made it better since there were lots of kids to play with.


Because of all the rain, the park was really flooded in parts and Paprika ended up getting soaked! Thankfully we could drive home real quick and let her change, then bring her back to the park, so she could be mostly dry for the rest of the day. Ginger got her feet wet in a few puddles, but didn't seem to mind.

We came home and picked lots of oranges and made fresh squeezed orange doesn't get any fresher than this! Overall, it was a really relaxing day!


Today Mr. Mustard had lunch with one of his buddies, so I took Ginger to the beach while Paprika was at school. I put Ginger on my back in the Ergo and she fell asleep about 3 minutes into our walk. I ended up walking with her for about two hours because I knew if I stopped she would wake up. Ha! So, I got a good workout in...but no pictures because my camera was in the Ergo pocket and I couldn't reach it while she was on my back. Oh well. It was a nice memory for peaceful. It's so much easier to carry 25 pounds of sleeping toddler than it is to chase after her!

Then, I stopped by the Salvation Army. I hadn't been to one in years. This mom from Paprika's school was telling me that she always finds designer jeans there, so I thought I would give it a try. Lo and behold, I found 2 pairs of Seven for All Mankind jeans, one pair of Chip & Pepper's, and one pair of Lucky Jeans. All for $4/each! So that was really fun! And yea, I think I will be shopping there again! ;-)
