We've been up to alot and nothing all at the same time. Someone at my house likes mashed potatoes, but is still learning how to fee herself. Sometimes the hand shovel works and sometimes the spoon.

I attempted to thin out our toy surplus but JoAnna had a different idea. I went to get a box for storage and when I came back in this is what I found.

And she had a time playing in the box. All went well until she tried to get out and realized that her legs were too short to get out on her own.

As you already know she loves outside and especially playing in the dirt. I think garden time in the evenings is her favorite. She walks around with her little blue bucket and scoop. Her job is to scoop some dirt from one row and dump it in the next. I'll be ready when she can use a hoe, but of course by then the garden won't be so much fun.

JoAnna experienced the white sandy beach for the first time this past weekend. She absolutely enjoyed every minute of sprinkling the sand on herself and letting the waves run up her legs. I enjoyed the day myself.

Happy 16th birthday to JoAnna - 16 months that is. Brad hates it but we di wish her a happy birthday on the 9th of each month. Growing so fast, I'm sure it will feel like no time at all before she'll be 16 for real.

JoAnna's GranGran bought her a big pool so maybe she won't have to swim in the bucket any longer. She did seem to enjoy it though.

Looking forward to this weekend. We have a day trip planned for the beach. I'm all bubbly inside just thinking about it!

Trying it out

After several days not not being able to access blogger on my cell I've decided to try the app. We'll see.

The first blog attempt was from the river Memorial Day. JoAnna went out for the first time on the boat. Absolutely loved it. Even got in a quick nap. Was even happier when we stopped to play in the water.

My next attempt was the other afternon when JoAnna decided she wanted to play in the dirt.

She had a ball. And she had dirt in all her cracks and crevices.

So like any good country mama would, I stripped her naked and sprayed her off with the hose before going inside.
