Dolls and Waterfalls

The kids, all 4 of them, have really been bugging me this week.  To get out of the house on Monday we went to the bank, the gas station for a Dr. Pepper, then to the park for a little bit.  Tuesday I decided to head over to the local mall so we could check out the American Girl store.  I've been wanting to take Noelle since it opened months ago.  It was really neat to walk around and see all the different dolls set up in dioramas that coincided with the era the girl is from.  She seemed really overwhelmed at first.  She was more interested in the "extras" than the actual dolls.  The last spot we went to was the room with the Bitty Twins and Bitty Babies.  Her little eyes lit up right away!  It was so sweet!

When we were done looking around the store we walked around outside for a little while.  It was so nice out!!  The kids all liked the waterfalls!

I keep telling him that he has got to STOP making these signs, but he just doesn't get it!  He always looks like he is flashing gang signs in pictures.

So pretty!

Adam and Noelle thought this dog statue was awesome and asked me to take their picture with it.

Adam has been going to work with me this summer, nearly 5 weeks now.  One of the things I ask off him is that he read to Aud most days.  Before rest time on Tuesday they cuddled up to read a book together.  She is going to miss her buddy when he goes back to school this coming Tuesday.  Good thing it's only for 9 weeks and then she will have him back for 3 more weeks!
