2009 05 Back Yard Camping Trip

Click here for pictures
Daddy wanted to get out the camping gear to see what was what for the Father/Daughter camping trip he's taking Hannah on Father's Day weekend. We decided to make a night of it and we all slept in the tent. It was pretty comfortable though Hannah is still a wild sleeper and had arms swinging and body flopping over mommy or daddy throughout the night. There was even the commotions of nearby campers (our neighbors must have been having a party) and running water nearby (someone has a fountain). We made memories that night and may be ready for a full on family trip in the near future.

Hannah's Snowman Party

Over the long Memorial Day Weekend I thought it would be nice to tune up the old bicycles, hitch up the kiddie trailer, and take the girls out for a spin. I needed to replace the innertubes and tires on my mountain bike. Do you know the trick where you put talcum powder in the tires before inserting the tubes. It keeps the rubber from sticking next time you have to take the tube out. Anyway... while the baby power bottle was out of my sight, look what happened behind my back!

To promote their new movie of the Christmas Carol coming out in Nov, Disney decked the walls of several Amtrak train cars. At first I wasn't sure if the girls could handle to long wait... I wasn't sure if I could! But three hours later, we were inside, checking out the attraction. It was free and a fun day for the Jaffe family.

Alyssa really had fun at Mea's birthday party. It's the first one she's really gone on about. Gramma and Grampop got an earful the weekend after the party. Thanks for a fun day Mea!

2009 05 Purple Baby Punished

"No Baby, no!" I hear Alyssa say as she came inside from the backyard. "Time out Baby." Promptly, Purple Baby is put in our time out corner in the kitchen.

"Why is Purple Baby in time out?" I ask.

"Baby jumping on wagon," was her reply as she turned towards the stove. "Egg timer, mommy?"

Alyssa frequently puts her babies in time out. Usually without much of a reason.

2009 05 MOPS Walk

Naomi is the Co-Coordinator at the MOPS group she attends along with her friend, Kimberly. They participated in a local walk to raise funds. When we arrived, we thought we were really late, because there wasn't anyone there. Turns out, there wasn't much of a crowd that morning... maybe 12 ladies and their families. However, Naomi and Kimberly were glad to have participated, because they were able to raise over $500 for their group.

2009 05 Little Ladybug

As we were leaving Hannah's preschool class today, Hannah stopped and started digging into her front pocket saying something about a ladybug. "Wait until we get home Hannah, show it to me then." So we head to the car, the girls get buckled in,we get home, they get out and after heading inside, they played a bit while mommy heads to the kitchen to try to figure out lunch real quick.

"I named my ladybug Ariel," Hannah calls to mommy as she joins me. As I turn to her, I see that she is holding out her little hand and there was a ladybug... a real little ladybug, not a paper or sticker one that mommy thought she'd see. "Where did you find it Hannah?" I say. "On the playground." That was most likely mid morning. I wondered how long she had it in her pocket, surprised it lasted this long.

Sadly, Ariel, the ladybug, didn't last must longer than lunch. Hannah manhandled the poor thing until she asked if I could fix it... the head was severed from the rest of the body.
