After a wonderful Women's Retreat, we went to Illinois for an overnight to pick up Riley. She spend the weekend playing at Grammy and Paw Paw's house with Reese. She also picked up some birthday presents. We got to see my brother-in-law, Forrest, baptised at Little Chapel. It was great to see some old friends there. Riley got her first computer for her birthday. She has been wearing my phone out playing games so she got a small android tablet for her birthday. Don't worry. It isn't an iPad. There are actually some great, much less expensive tablets out there great for kids or travel. She already has it figured out and loves it.

Riley turned three yesterday! She is growing so fast. She decided she wanted to make her own birthday cake and it had to be pink. She definitely helped. She cracked the eggs, did a lot of the mixing and added the desired level of food coloring. But then she wouldn't eat the cake. She is so funny. We took it to a church dinner Sunday night and she decided she'd rather have a brownie. We also bought new material for a twin size quilt when she moves (hopefully soon) to a twin sized bed. She helped pick it out (she really wanted cars and thomas but decided pink would work too) and I got it all washed and pressed. Can't wait to get started on it!

On this gorgeous day we enjoyed some fun at the farm. It wasn't as muddy as I'd feared and the wind was perfect for kites. We painted, rode the 4-wheeler, rode the bicycle, played in the sandbox and on the swingset. It was a great day! Riley is explaining to her cats what a kite is in this picture.

I was a little slim on new pics this week so I dug back and pulled out some video I took of Riley opening presents at my parent's house during Christmas. Hopefully with the sunshine and better weather we'll be able to get outside for some spring farm pics soon.
