Aldridge Gardens

Mark needed a mental health break from work, so he took a Monday off and played with us all day.  It was such a nice surprise!  The weather was perfect, and Marin just loves being outside so we ventured over to Aldridge Gardens.  We ate lunch there, played, and took a little hike.  It's nice having a place like that so close to us.

A Day at the Park

The weather this fall has been absolutely beautiful.  Marin and I have been spending a lot of time at the park.  We took Uncle David, Aunt Stephanie, Bridget, and Audrey to play when they were here for a visit.
 She loves her new ride on toy from Baba and Fly.  It's not the fastest form of transportation but she felt like such a big girl riding it next to her cousins.

Pink Lemonade















She kept trying to hand her cupcake to Daddy!



















I think the bubbles were her favorite part!






Rin had a pink lemonade theme birthday party.  It was a lot of fun to do.  I think we're done squeezing lemons for awhile though.  She had a great time playing with her cousins and some of her friends.  We played outside most of the day because the weather was absolutely perfect!  The food turned out really good and I had fun making it.  Mark helped a lot too; I need to give him credit.  I had planned to take a picture of the food before it was devoured, but I forgot!  I was too wrapped up in the fun!  After everyone left, she literally sat in my lap and opened every single present.  I thought there was no way she would sit in one spot that long, but she loved opening all the gifts.  It was just such a fun day I found myself wanting to do it all again the next day.
