Dave had a busy weekend earlier this month so the girls and I ran down to Cincinnati. Papa has started a tradition of painting the girls nails. Avery hasn't ever wanted to participate, but she did this time! She sat so still I couldn't even believe it. She would point out one finger at a time and let him paint them. There was a little polish smeared on her feet and carpet:) Addison had a pattern picked out and Papa did a great job fulfilling her wishes. The next day we drove downtown to Findlay Market. I loved looking at all the different vendors. We picked out some yummy breads and cheeses and went to a park for lunch. It was the perfect windy day for a kite. Papa helped Addi get it going really high and for a long time. Addison wondered all over the park with the kite. She keeps asking if we can go back and fly it. We ended the day by going to Skyline and then I headed back home with the girls. It was a great distraction to Dave going on a campout and then chaperoning a youth dance. The girls want the weather to be warm so bad! It keeps flipping back and forth on us. Addison got a new bathing suit and wore it for two days inside. It came with a funny little swim cap that we couldn't even get to fit on top of her (large) cute head of curls. Addison is still loving her preschool group. They all are obsessed with Elsa and want to wear their dresses every time. We usually give in at the end and they prance around happy and smiling. One of the little girls is moving this summer and the other will go to a different preschool this fall. This has been a fun group for Addison and I'm grateful for the little friendships that have developed from it. We've been bundling up and going on family walks after dinner. This was always a favorite thing to do in Buffalo because we would end up at the Quinn's house! Avery is a slllooooww bike rider and it drives Dave nuts:) She Fred Flinstone pedals it and going very very slow. He ended up convincing her to push the back of her bike instead. I've since gone and found her a smaller little car to ride on. We're looking forward to hooking the bike seats on soon and riding this summer !
