Spring Break 2013 wasn't a typical spring break; instead of heading south toward warmer weather, I (by myself!) flew north the land of ice and snow and wind chills in the single digits to visit the Mueller and Ekena families and meet baby Carter. My trip was made possible by the generosity of Grandpa Mike and Grandma Susie, who flew in to College Station to take care of Will and Hallie while I was away (Tom had to work and then travel to Baltimore for a conference).
Will and Hallie had a great time playing at the park, planting vegetables and flowers, painting fingernails, reading books, and watching movies with Grandma and Grandpa.
|Putting candles in Grandpa's birthday cake.|
|Painting fingernails with Grandma.|
|Planting tomatoes, peppers, onions, and strawberries.|
|Crying about the worm she saw in the dirt. |
And what a lovely outfit she's wearing, might I add.
|"It's a necklace, Grandpa."|
|Already an expert on Grandma's phone.|
|Teeny, tiny little hand|
|Carter looks so much like Will here...|
|Making mischief in his dreams.|
|He looks like he's wrapped in an animal pelt.|
|And then totally exasperated with me and this photo shoot.|
|When Tinkerbell attacks|
|Working the camera|
|I may have used red Tic Tacs as a bride to get her to sit still.|
|Helping Grandma open her birthday presents.|
|Sara and Lily working out. Well, Sara's working out.|
|Just for fun, I spent a bit of time wearing Sara's wedding dress.|
|And then I finally let Lily have a turn.|
