Fall Has Arrived

October 30, 2011

Our warm Indian summer days are no more…20 degree temperature shifts brought brisk cool fall weather our way this weekend.  The kind of weather that makes you want to stay indoors and purge the closets of summer clothes while having a pot of chili simmer on the stove.  OR…for a soon-to-be 5 year old…perfect weather for riding a jeep and painting some pumpkins!  Today was all about the outdoors for the big girl…

Purple and Pink

August 1, 2010

A Sunday afternoon with just Clare and Mommy—say no more.

Clare  gave an emphatic “Yes” when I asked her last night if she would like to go get her toes painted today.  “I know, Mommy, how about I get purple and you get pink?!”

This is only the second time I’ve taken her to the nail salon and the first time I’ve actually gotten my nails done with her.  Clare picked out our colors and propped herself in the spa chair as if she knew exactly what to do.

She sat as still as could be as she watched her toes undergo their pedicure.  😉

Clare's Pedicure

The nail tech was awesome…when finished, she lifted Clare out of the chair and carried her over to the “drying” table.  I sat beside Clare and she looked down at my toes and made the comment of how beautiful our toes were but she REALLY liked her purple toes better than my pink toes.  😉

"Look at our Beautiful Toes!"

She discovered the candy bowl sitting on the table and asked me if she could have a lollipop.  As I gave it to her, she asked if this was one that had gum inside…how she knew what a Blow Pop was, I have no idea?!  Sure enough, there was gum inside (except she got tired of it before she got to the good part).

Somebody found the candy bowl!

She waited patiently for her toes to dry and made the comment that I should have brought my own flip flops like she did—“that way you could wear them home like me!”.

As we walked out the door of the Nail Salon she said “Ahhh, I can’t wait to show Daddy our beautiful toes!”.

Another wonderful Sunday.

A Carefree Sunday

July 25, 2010

As typical for July in North Carolina—it is  piping hot.  This weekend was no exception with 103 degree days both Saturday and Sunday.

Clare LOVES her park outings on the weekends; we headed out super early both days in an attempt to beat this intense heat.  The hot sunshine didn’t seem to slow Clare down in the least bit.  She rode her bike, swung on the swings and actually took off running with Robert and me on the greenway trails.  When we got back home this morning, she wanted to play in the yard with her Sprinkler Ball (thank you, Baby Will!). Talk about FUN—she had a ball!

It’s no surprise that she napped afterward (albeit 45 minutes).  Last weekend, Clare and her Daddy went to the local ice cream shop where Clare had her very first ice-cream cone (it’s always been in a bowl)!  She woke up this morning asking if we could go get ice-cream today (“but, pleeeease?”).   The deal was that if she napped, we would take her to  get ice-cream.  Easy to guess how this story ends, huh?!  😉
