Saturday seems even more great after this lame night. Maybe it is that Justin is back on call and I'm on my own. Maybe it is because Hayden was mad we decided to play 'Memory', went to slam the door, and didn't realize Bennett's head was halfway through. But now all the babes are sleeping and I'm getting some photoshop rejuvenation.
Anywho. Saturday. It ended up being one of those days where we had nothing on the schedule, but we headed out early and didn't come back until the kids were ready to crash right into bed. Love those days! J played some baseball, so happy dad. The girls ended the night with ice cream, so happy children, of course. I was feeling like I wanted to do a photoshoot with the kids, so happy mom. One of them was not having it, can you guess which one?
So, whatevs. When we got back in the car, I said, "One nice thing about having three kids is that at least one of them is up for taking pictures if the others are being pills." And surprise! It was Hayden today--the one who typically has no interest. I was happy about that. And her new boots I picked up at the second-hand store--those also make me happy.
After a few stops, we wandered over to the fairy woods to build some houses:
As we were leaving, I was able to grab the two of them for a minute. I stared at this picture for so long and got choked up seeing Abbey's protective arm and Hayden gently starting to hold her other hand. Love these two, love that they are sisters. I hope they figure out early how lucky they are to have each other.
The dude was crashed in the stroller but was looking rather handsome that morning, I think.
