Dave. Valerie. Sylvia. Veda. Guinevere. And the animals.

Our One Day of Spring
This has been a hard late winter and early spring. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I have been able to to take the girls outdoors to play. But a couple of weeks ago we were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous weekend and we took full advantage of it.
I love this picture. There is something about her little body walking away from me that just makes me smile when I see this shot. She was on a mission: To get to Daddy's rocks!
Dave has a collection of rocks by the fire pit. I am not sure what he intends to do with them, but he is always out there collecting rocks. He has all sorts of dreams: A rock wall, a larger fire pit, a rock garden. Perhaps one day one or two of these dreams will come to fruition, but in the meantime, we just have a lot of rocks!
For those of you wondering, Veda is not yet walking. She is so close and she has indeed taken a few steps here and there, but there has still been no consistent attempts to master the biped move.
One of my most favorite things about spring is the frogs. I simply love hearing the frogs sing. I am going to try and post a little video snippet from my walk, but I am not sure our internet connection will allow me to do so. But here I am on my way to take a listen to the frogs.
We live in the country and have a little zoo: Three indoor cats (Audrey, Edgar, and Orange), too many outdoor cats, and our little parrot lovebird named Duncan. Our daughter, Sylvia, was born in October 2008; our second daughter, Veda, was born in January 2010; and our third daughter, Guinevere "Evvie," was born November 2011.
