Cooking, Playing and Poppins

These pictures show what a typical day of summer might look around our house when we don't get out of the house all day. I turned my back for a couple of minutes and Caitlyn had all these kitchen tools out and was cooking up a mean dish of "spicy" cheese sticks with salt and pepper. To me it looks like more dishes to wash. But the smile is worth it, huh!
Caitlyn and Brent are loving there swing set/play area outside now that the weather has cooled off and it is not a blazing 110 degrees! Brent prefers to be outside and Caitlyn is fine with it as long as she can dress up and take all her toys too. Bonus for me: They love playing together!
First they were playing inside the dog houses. Gross - I know! Then they began crawling all over the tops of them and I finally figured out they are "airplanes." Gotta love those imaginations!
Last night Caitlyn and I had a movie date to watch Mary Poppins. This was her first musical and I was so hoping she would love it. She did! Mary Poppins, the musical is coming to Dallas in September and October and I'm hoping to get us tickets to go.

For our movie night we had to have popcorn and candy. How did she know this? Not quite sure. We have taken her to the movie once, at Christmas time and I don't remember making a big deal about the food. The movie on the other hand will forever stick out in my mind, it was the new movie about dogs and we thought she would love it. What we didn't know and now feel kind of dumb admitting it is that it was a tear jerker, Marley & Me. So I was holding her and trying not to lose it.

I digress. We had a great time and I can't wait to take her to the musical.

  1. How fun! Thank you for letting us peek into your day. I love Caitlyn's imagination and exuberance and her little partner's willingness to join her. I'm glad Mary Poppins was a hit, too.
