Vada wears sparkle shoes every day. Notice anything about today’s outfit though? She has now taken to wearing one blue sparkle shoe and one pink sparkle shoe.
The temperature soared into the 60s today so we headed to the beach! Not a bad way to spend a winter January day!
Vada participated in a hearing screening at preschool today. One of the best exchanges during the verbal portion was when the therapist asked Vada why she brushed her teeth. Vada confidently answered “So that they don’t turn green and fall out.”
Vada and I traveled to Kansas after Christmas. We enjoyed time with family, ate sweets, opened presents, etc. Vada spent most of her time loving on my parent’s golden retriever Prince.
Although Santa still gets all the credit.
We had a warm, sunny trip to the beach in Mexico over Thanksgiving. We filled our days with digging in the sand, swimming, riding horses, kayaking, and painting nails. The surprise of the trip was stumbling across a traditional thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant complete with stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.
Some friends asked us to join them on a trip to the Oregon coast this weekend. At first I thought they were crazy but when I checked the weather realized it was actually warmer at the coast than in Portland!
The kids immediately stripped of socks and shoes to run around the sand. This progressed quickly to Vada rolling around the sand.
We played in the tidal pools. Vada did awesome but I fell in when the tide surrounded me.
At a second beach after refueling on ice cream the kids chased and ran around the sand dunes. Vada kept screaming “This is awesome!”
Vada chose a lot of treats that she wanted for her birthday. Our freezer is still full of cake from Toban and my birthdays so I had to space out the baking with Vada. We made cupcakes for Vada’s friend birthday party but Vada still wanted a pink princess layer cake as well. Happy birthday kiddo!
