I hate house work...

...but I'm hopeful that maybe Riley will enjoy it. You can see she is cleaning under daddy's chair and then she is headed into the back room to get the carpet in there. This was one of our weerun's finds. It went to Grammie's this weekend. It will make a nice accessory in the "play house" under the stairs.

Planting the Garden

This week Tim and Brian (Hoover, a friend) planted the first four rows sweet corn. It was a little wet still but maybe we'll have a little early corn. I also planted a whole row of strawberry plants. Tim is very proud of his vintage two row planter. It is perfect for the garden.

We Survived WeeRuns!

My friend Andrea (mother of Jamie ~10months) and I stood in line to get into the weeruns pre-sale last night. She got there at 5:15 and the line was already getting long. I joined her about 5:30. About 5:45 the clouds started rolling in and it begin to sprinkle, then lightning, then it was pouring rain and finally some hail started coming down. It didn't deter the waiting crowd which was probably around 100 at that point. When my umbrella shocked me during the lightning I wondered if maybe this was crazy but as the pictures of my finds attest it was all worth it. I was most excited about the Elmo talking tool bench completely in working order and with tools. There were only 2 and I got one for $20. Amazon has them new for $299 since they don't make them any more. It is really cute. The kitchen was a steal at $5 and I found several other toys at good bargains. Andrea did well too. She got Jamie the same little gator ride-on that Carrie gave to Riley. We'll have to get some pictures of the girls cruising in style. All-in-all it was a much better experience than last time. We made it to the check-out before the line got out of hand and before we spent all of our money :)

Twinkie Face

This was daddy's idea. Give her a whole twinkie...she won't make a mess!

More Easter Pics

Riley enjoyed playing with her cousins over Easter when the family got together. I think she learned a lot watching the older ones. They had the cutest little tool bench with tons of tools. Her cousins were very sweet to let her play too.

Easter Sunday

Here are some pics of Riley from Easter Sunday morning. She got this dress as a hand-me-down from Margaret Crawford's great-granddaughter. It was adorable on her. She almost looked like a little amish girl. We didn't think we'd be able to keep a white dress clean through 2 services but we managed to do it.

Riley on her 4-wheeler

Riley has been riding the 4-wheeler my parents got her for her birthday. She still isn't too much into stearing but she seems to like going along for the ride. Mostly she goes in circles.

1 Year Check-Up

Riley has been for her check-up and shots. She zonked out in the car shortly after the shots. I felt nearly as wore out after trying to wrangle her, the diaper bag and pay the bill. She was 19lbs and 29 1/2 inches long. That puts her at 10% for her weight and 75% for her height. Tall and skinny like Daddy I think! She is cutting all 4 of her top teeth and one on the bottom all at the same time and she is starting to say a few words like "Hi" and "Duck".
