Alice and I had SUCH a fun afternoon together!! I picked her up early, and we walked home through the park. We took our time, just letting Alice walk wherever she wanted to go. It took us 2 and a half hours to get from daycare home -- all of 20 blocks. But it was heavenly. Alice ran all over the place, playing in the grass and mud and uneven sidewalks. She pointed at every dog that walked by, and cheered when we reached the swings. It was just such a pleasant, relaxing afternoon - no pressure, just fun. Heaven.
I love the arms in the air on this picture - a carefree and happy Alice:
And this video is worth it for the last 5 seconds:
Finally, in the midst of the hurricane on Sunday morning, desperate for an activity to amuse Alice (as well as ourselves), we let Alice "finger paint" with died yogurt (THANK YOU Sarah for this great idea). We stupidly let Alice see us mixing the paints, so she just chowed down. Adorable!
