Do you remember "flying" as a child? I think it would be awesome if adults flung each other around the way we do a child. How free they must feel. I know my girl loves it. Maris gives it everything she's got when Daddy swoops her up and she takes flight.
Haha. I just noticed the grass makes it look like something strange is going on with my husband's legs. There's a dry creek bed at the back of our yard, which separates our lawn from the park. I'm sure going down and up the ditch walls made flying all the more fun!
We are part of a wonderful playgroup. We met weeks after the babies were born at nursing support clinic for new moms. Everyone attended the others' first birthday parties over the course of the spring months last year, but we thought it would be more fun and cost effective to just have a party for group this year. One mom suggested bowling. I was leery at first but it was so fun!! There was no way to choose one photo from today.
Here is Maris and her buddy, Nate, checking out what this bowling thing is all about.
Maris takes her first shot!
I think she liked it! Waiting at the ball return for her second attempt.
And here she goes. She's taking this very seriously.
Which apparently paid off because...
Two spares on her first two turns! She's a bowling rockstar!
Okay Maris, now you're just getting a big head. Watch your shot.
All the kids lined up (kind of) for a group photo.
Interested in the final score? PBA here we come!!!
Lastly, remember those mysterious ingredients from a couple days ago? They turned into this.
My parents had us over for dinner and to watch the Kentucky Derby. We all drew a horse's name out of the bowl and cheered that horse on. Maris was watching for her horse, Mission Impazible, while she cheered and clapped!
My horse was Ice Box who came in second so I guess I was the winner at our little Derby Party.
