Playing outside

"I'm going to get you!"
My old Man
"Ready, set, go!"
Some times I don't know who is the bigger kid, Elizabeth or Marc.  Although I can't say too much because I play around with her as much as Marc.  I'm just usually the one behind the camera.  I must say, I'm impressed he could get on her bike!
Looking at the sky
Elizabeth also likes to lay on the deck and look at the sky.  She sees clouds, trees, birds and airplanes.  She'll tell us to lay down with her and when she is done, she'll tell us to sit up.  She is awfully bossy.  Wonder where she gets that from?

More cloud watching
In between the rain, Elizabeth and I did manage to plant some peas last week.  Hopefully it will stay nice enough to plant the tomatoes, beans and potatoes this weekend.  I'm also hoping to get a few outdoor decorating done.  I am a avid "Pinner" on Pinterest and have so many wonderful ideas.  A few I actually hope to accomplish.  Maybe will have pics next week.
We're also getting ready for Elizabeth's birthday party.  Curious George is out theme.  Banana everything and lots of balloons!

As she was trying to get me to sit up.  My giant baby!

My two favorite people in the world

Sorry if you thought it was you.  It is these two silly goof balls.  Elizabeth is all about Daddy right now.  And being outside.  She loves to hunt for rocks and dig in the garden and help.  Last Saturday between the rain we got outside and raked the garden and E got a trowel and got very, very dirty.  Thankfully she washes.  I got very dirty too as I was redoing the raspberry patch so it is easier to walk in and hopefully to pick.  However, this year thanks to the rabbits and dog we won't have much of a harvest.  Oh well.
So far we have had a rhubarb upside down cake and a rhubarb pie.  Yummy!  Elizabeth didn't think much of either.  The silly girl won't eat ice cream but she will eat garlic hummus by the spoonful.  Marc was wondering if she was our daughter until she started eating the hummus.  I love garlic and apparently gave Elizabeth the gene.
We were planning to go camping this Memorial weekend, but decided not to in the rain.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Happy Mother's Day

Hope all of you Moms had a good Mother's Day.  We went to church in the morning and the day working on projects at home.  Here are a couple pics from after church

1st Ponytail

As anyone who has seen Elizabeth knows, she's a baldy.  Not sure where that is coming from because both Marc and I have hair to spare.  Marc is enjoying it because he doesn't have to fix her hair.  He is worried about that.  We've been watching her fine baby hair grow little by little.  Both of us hoping it will turn out curly like mine.  Yesterday at daycare Elizabeth insisted on getting her hair fixed since all of the other girls were (they all have lots and lots of hair).  Elizabeth's teacher, being a good sport got a little ponytail going for Elizabeth.  It was so cute and Elizabeth was so proud.  It is hard to see in the pics, but she is so darn cute with the little thing sticking straight up on her head.  Of course she would not hold still for a good picture.  She is too much like her Daddy that way (And Great Grandpa Wilson).  I also wanted to show the cute little vest I made for her.  I was planning on her wearing it next fall but it seems the perfect thing for this non-spring.
