Mama Flo traced my hand. I thought it was the greatest thing ever! I asked her to trace it in all different colors.

I even asked her to trace Nana's!

Sweet hands.

Tricycle Time

Amelia and I took our tricycles to the park today!

Since I end up falling on my head every time I get on my tricycle in the house (yes - including today before we left for the park), Mommy and Daddy thought a helmet was a good idea for outside.

This warning on Amelia's tricycle made Mommy laugh out loud. Is this really necessary? Really? You might have to click on it to make it bigger so you can read it.

Amelia and I traded for a while.

We decided pushing is easier than peddling.

Then we decided to rest a while. Amelia turned our helmets into "babydoll swings."

Next, we decided to go grocery shopping.

See our purses?

Then we headed back to the car. I helped Miss Sharon push Amelia's tricycle while Amelia carried the baby doll swings/purses/helmets and sunglasses, and Mommy carried my tricycle and snapped pictures! Fun!!!

Planting Flowers

Mommy and Nana and I went to Selmer for the Mother Daughter Banquet at Mama Flo's church last week. Mommy and I were lucky and won these pretty flowers - they are one of Mommy's favorites.

I decided we should plant the flowers so we can enjoy them all summer. We have this empty planter that the neighborhood cats use as a litter box.

We went to Wildwood Nursery to pick out a few more things. I had a blast at the nursery. Mommy has seen signs that say "If you break it you buy it" in fancy gift shops. She said she was glad they didn't have a "If you PICK it you buy it" at the nursery!!! The gardeners had just finished watering the plants so there were lots of puddles. Not only did I have thousands of plants to explore, I also had puddles to splash in while looking. Mommy turned around to pick up a plant she liked and since she wasn't looking, I decided to sit in one of those puddles! It felt great! I had to take my pants and shoes off before Mommy would let me get in the car.

When we came home, we emptied out all of the kitty litter, I mean the old potting soil.

Then we put in new flowers and new potting soil. I was sure the potting soil on my hands was chocolate cake crumbs and I tried licking it off several times, but Mommy wouldn't let me! She said it was dirt! And guess what? I tried a taste while she wasn't looking and it WAS dirt. Hmm! Here is our planter all finished. It's not a masterpiece like MiMi or Mama Kaye would create, but it's a good first attempt AND we had FUN!!!!!

Memphis Fun

Between the A-Day Game, the Crimson Caravan and Riverkings Hockey, Mommy, Daddy, and I have been keeping the road between home and Memphis hot! I have been spending a lot of time with Mama Kaye and Joel.
I helped Mama Kaye with her fountain.

Isn't it cute?

Mama Kaye and Joel have baby birds!

This is the same baby bird a couple of weeks later, all grown up.

Look at Mama Kaye's beautiful back yard.

I got to help plant flowers (Mama Kaye took pictures for my blog)!

And I got to water them!

Dirty hands!

While I was at Mama Kaye's, Joel taught me this (well, actually, Daddy taught me this one and Joel just reminded me how to do it)

. . . and this. . .

. . . and this. Strangers at Wal-Mart think this is hilarious, thanks, Joel!
