Sunshine at last!!!

That's right - finally, after the long winter, we got some sunshine and temperatures that whisper of spring and summer. It didn't take us long to get out and enjoy the weather either! 
 I had to get a coat for Joy, as I didn't have any from when Hope was a baby that would fit Joy.
 We picked up a couple soft bouncy balls at Canadian Tire, and the girls have been enjoying them greatly.
 In all sorts of ways.
 Joy was cautious at first on our deck with all it's little quirks, but she marches around it like a pro now.
 There - captured a smile. :o)
 Joy talks to herself almost all the time. 
 At first she would crawl down backwards off the deck onto the grass, but now she just steps down with ease. (It's only 2 inches difference.)
 Mmm, mmm, mmm - corn on the cob - a new favourite lunch food.
 Josh helped some friends move a couple Saturdays ago, so he took the girls seats out of the van so he could fold all the seats down for more hauling space. (We love the stow-and-go features of our van.)
 Car seats in the house provided a welcome diversion for the girls who are used to having Daddy around most Saturdays. :o) They played in them/around them for quite a while.
 "Look at Mommy, girls..."
 Later that day we had a tea party-lunch.
 Just for something different. :o)
 Hope is very good at pouring tea into the cups.
 After our late-morning tea party, we went out to the backyard together and pulled out the sidewalk chalk. I remembered how the girls liked having their feet traced last year, and this year Hope added her own letter "H" to her footprints.
 There were "H's" everywhere!
On that Sunday we hosted Care Group here and Joy very gladly helped Daddy move the chairs around to get set up. :o)
 Strong little one.
"There. You stay there, chair!" 
What fun she is. This is the same child who can push a full grocery cart around the aisles. And if Mommy tells her, "No, Joy, don't do that," then she pulls the cart and goes backwards instead. :o) I love my second born. :o)
