It was a beautiful morning here in Ohio, so Paisley and I made the most of it by getting out and about. We got all decked out in our TN orange to support Pat Summit, then headed out. First we went to the library to return a few things, and of course get a new Veggie Tales video. (P's new favorite thing!) Then it was off to the park.
She rode the airplane...
Then the dinosaur!! It took about 5 minutes to get up the courage, but she did it! She's not crying in this picture, only cringing :) She enjoyed every minute!
Once we left the park we went to Sam's for a few items, and we also picked up an Icee! Mmmm!! Paisley's first, (of course we shared!) and she is sold on them! Sam's has the best Icee's anyway!
Lacey and I recently decided to take the girls to a local pond and let them feed the ducks. They enjoyed every minute, and the ducks enjoyed my burned biscuits from the morning! At first we had no ducks near us... Then we had 2 little guys come over, and before long we looked out across the pond and there were ducks coming from every which way!
THEN, these guys came to crash our party. Mean ol' geese! They swam right over, walked up to us (about 6 feet away!) and hissed! Paisley screamed in fear, Lacey grabbed Kaitlyn and ran for it, but crazy me stayed and fought them off! Must be my Polk Co roots coming out, but that made me so mad! I swung my camera at them to keep them back, and finished feeding the ducks the bread. :) Lacey called out from the back ground "Have you ever seen video of geese attacking?" Hah, she was trying to protect me I guess but I am a little too stubborn!
We recently went to a Peach Festival, and unfortunately, we weren't very impressed with having many things to do. (The petting zoo was going to cost $8!) Luckily, they did have some blow up toys that we decided to let Paisley try out for the first time. Needless to say, she had a great time! She ran and bounced and played for quite a while! Later that day when we were home she would sign and say "more bounce!"
Paisley loves her baby dolls to no end. She plays with them a lot of the day, whether it's rocking them, feeding, them, giving them their "e-i", strolling them around, or whatever else. Here, she is at Kaitlyn's house, and she was having a ball with Kaitlyn's babies and accessories! She is going to be such a big helper when baby girl #2 comes along!
We had an awesome opportunity to go to a Dayton Dragons Baseball game and sit in a box through Jason's work. It was soooo nice! When we arrived, there were hamburgers, hotdogs, popcorn, snacks, drinks, pizza, fries, all kinds of food, and great company as well. We had a nice family night out, and I must say Paisley enjoyed every minute.
She LOVED the huge baseballs outside the park. Actually cried when we had to leave them!
At the Boonshoft Discovery Museum there is a section that Paisley would never step foot in, until recently! It is full of rubber shreds, and bones! Kids can dig and shovel, and brush to discover fossils, and Paisley was very excited to take part of the action this time. She had a great time discovering, indeed.
We tried painting with watercolors recently and Paisley did a great job! She was so careful about dipping the brush in water, then the paint, and painting on the paper only! She is going to be one creative kid!
Paisley recently learned to play "Ring Around the Rosie" and she wants to play ALL THE TIME! She and I play, we play with stuffed animals, Jason plays with us, until we can't play anymore... So Paisley improvises and holds her own hand, and plays by herself, when we are played out. Here she is in action!
We are a happy couple that has been married for over 5 years, and together for 12 years! We recently move from Virginia where Jason completed Medical School, to Ohio, where we will be spending 5 years for Jason to complete residency in Orthopedics. We bought our first home, and I am teaching part-time at a Montessori School. On top of that, we had our first child late December 2009. What better way to keep our friends and family posted than a blog!
