Our holiday weekend in pictures (of mostly Anna) and a few words:
A cold trip to the park on Friday afternoon with Mo D and Aunt Kaitlyn.
Climbing through the train to get to Mo D.
Saturday morning Mo D and I met with Carol, our decorator (separately). Anna played with each of us while the other one worked. There was no shortage of things to do with Riley around and new coloring books and crayons to play with, babies from Meg and Kaity's childhood to hold, and magnetic shape 'blocks' to build with.
In the afternoon, we took a trip to see our cousins Krysha, Dave, and Grace. We also saw some wildlife, which made the trip for Anna.
We saw this snake, another little baby one, and at least 4 frogs (or toads?) Krysha's blog has better photos of the creatures...check them out.
Sunday morning I went for a long run while Anna did water play on Mo's back deck. She watered the plants, cleaned the deck, and she made sure Riley had plenty to drink.
Mo D took too many cute photos of Anna and Riley. They really warmed up to each other by the end of the weekend.
Aunt Carolyn drove up for a visit in the afternoon, which Anna loved. The weather didn't cooperate, but it didn't stop Anna when we went to the cottage. The rain kept us from a boat ride that evening, so we had to return Monday morning for Anna's first time on a motor boat before our visit with Great Mo.
This water was cold (and so was the air)! Although Mo had a warm little pool filled up for her on the grass, she preferred the freezing lake.
Happy girl. She did not want to leave the cottage on Sunday or Monday, and she made it clear she didn't want to come home today either. Guess looking for carpet and meeting painters at the new house aren't quite as fun as playing all weekend at Mo D's. I agree.
