Imaginations At Play

Yesterday we took the girls to a fun place for kids. It is a pretend play kind of place. There is a farmers market and grocery store, a vet's office, train station, music tree and a spot just for little kids. Rachel hadn't been there for along time. She had a great time playing and so did Rebecca. She seemed a bit overwhelmed at first, but finally found her favorite spots to play.

At the big bathtub with lots of bubbles and tub toys

She loved pushing the grocery cart(or "buggy" as they
call them in the South)

We played for a couple of hours and then went to Mellow Mushroom for the best pizza. And then home for naps! It was a really fun day for us all.

And for something completely different--just wanted to show a project I worked on the past two weeks. Raphael had to go and work at a plant in another state for two weeks! So while he was gone, I decided to "redo" his office/computer room. It is the last room in our house to be painted and it was full of papers and magazines and old bills and everything else. It was lots of work, but fun too. Felt good to get it organized and looking better. Now I just hope we can keep it this way!

Before pictures--so not good!

Now isn't that better? Just love what a can of paint, some decorations from TJMaxx, and a lot of elbow grease can do!
