Wednesday morning my small group at MOPS took our kiddos to the Arboretum. It was a beautiful day and the kids had a great time. I had Ella and Hunter strapped in their double stroller (or as I like to call it my mini-van because it is so HUGE! but I love it!) The bigger kids were so fascinated with the ponds and fountains and I could just see having to jump in one of them after Ella dove in, so needless to say I kept her close by my side. That is when she wasn't running away trying to make a break for it. Luckily, I can always count on Melody! Ella ran right to her. I think it is so sweet the way she really just seems to love Melody. Here are the two babies I had with me. Okay, my family and I have all had the discussion that these two look a lot alike. They do! However, they do not look like twins. If they were the same age, or size, yes I could see it, but do you see how much bigger she is than him?? I got asked several times about my twins?!? I guess when they are in their mini-van it is hard to tell how much bigger she is?She has a new found love of her tongue. She did this when she was younger and just discovering her teeth, and it might be because she is currently in the process of getting FOUR molars, but she is loving that tongue again! And I love it!
She just loved that she could run wild.
And look at the beautiful flowers. And even pick a few. I told her she wasn't supposed to, but the girl has a mind of her own. Hunter felt a little left out since he can't walk yet, but he did a lot of rolling around and got held a lot too.
I know Hunter...I love her bows too!
It finally became too much for him though and he passed out in the stroller. So Miss Priss and I took a few more pictures.
I love this girl!! And Ella and Aliyah finally got some time to spend together. They shared the flower petals that they were picking! Now, I know you are not supposed to pick them, but when you see their faces, you just can't be mad at them!
And here is her older brother CHEESE-ing it up for a picture!And some more of the kiddos that were with us.After about three hours we packed up and headed home and both the babies were fast asleep in their car seats. Play dates always seem good for that too!
