the weekend

thanks to gorgeous weather, the majority of the weekend was spent outdoors.

the hubs & his father finished up the chicken coop while i tried to convince alex that playing with her toys is far better than eating dirt & acorns. grandma came over on sunday so was another pair of hands & eyes to keep her occupied.

...the dogs tried to help too.

if these were pictures of me- they'd be awkward. but since she's alex, theyr'e simply cute.

you can clearly see the progression of her getting sick of me yelling "ALEX LOOK AT MOMMYYYYYY!!!"

she was content to hand me pieces of grass & play with ehr new toy for awhile...

until she realized my shoes had holes. she spent a good 10 minutes sticking her fingers into them & squealing when i'd wiggle my toes.

then she got bored & decided to make a "run" for the patch of acorns & leaves that had been calling to her...

and she got very upset when i told her "NO" to acorns but "YES" to cheerios.

and then all of a sudden she seemed to notice the dogs. she made a beeline. max was quick and got away- but poor cessna...
