I had the privilege of spending Saturday afternoon childless (thank you Sean!) with Laurel and Katie - lunch, shopping, and the chocolate bar (ever been? GO if you haven't!). But before we headed out, Katie got some great pictures of the girls in Sean's parents' backyard. Here are just a few of my faves!
There was a tea party.
even a proposal! :)
They were so cute, but they definitely let us know when they had HAD IT with the picture taking. My sweet Hattie-girl is definitely a" by the clock" kind of operator thanks to her mama who is BIG into schedules, so when 11:00 rolled around and lunch wasn't being laid out, a tummy began to growl as did the two year old who owns said tummy.
Katie also got a few of Miss Mary Ellen who is still the snot queen in our house. I AM SO SICK OF SNOT. I AM SO SICK OF SLEEP DEPRIVATION because of snot. Luckily the snot has almost vacated the nose but has moved on to the chest, so she can now breathe fairly well but now has to deal with constant coughing attacks :(. She has not been herself, and I was surprised that Katie actually captured a few smiles.
What can I say? Snotty, tired babies are still ticklish!
And I think this was the last picture taken of us - a tired mama ready to leave two tired babies with Daddy for the afternoon. Luckily they both took good naps for him.
You can look in the background and see that Wendy was still a ball of energy, though :).
