What a beautiful day

I just LOVE this spring weather. We had such a fun day today playing with our cousins and our sweet friends. Caryn and Kacey are both in town for the next few days, and I couldn't be happier. I just adore them and their precious children and it's really nice to hang out with no agenda. Here's a picture of the tough guys (Ryan, Stacey, Landry and Charley).

Lila Lou got some lovin' from Ollie the Octopus. This really brought back memories of baby Ryan and baby Ally playing with this treasured toy. It honestly seems like yesterday!

Aunt Cary having a little tea party with Wyatt and Ally. Note the gorgeous yellow bow placed in her hair. (She really likes to dress the part).

Whose kids are those climbing on the window seal? Oh yeah they're mine. Ryan would have never ever gotten away with this as an only child.

I just have to tell you a little story about my Ally. We went to Rosa's tonight for dinner and in the middle of eating fajitas this precious girl leaned over and gave me a huge hug. She had an enormous mouth full of tortilla, and I could tell she was trying to tell me something as she was hugging me. I couldn't hear her clearly at first, so I asked her repeat herself. I smiled the biggest smile when I heard what she said. She leaned in again and said, "You're my best friend":-)!!!! I mean it honestly does not get any more beautiful than that. I have no idea where she heard that phrase but I am so glad that today I am her best friend. Ally sometimes you make me want to shout with J-O-Y!

I'm so jealous of your green grass. We are still weeks away from that here in the dustbowl! So glad you get to be with your sisters and fam. We are coming tomorrow-yay for running barefoot in green grass and black dirt!! Ally is too sweet! Hugs to all the Purdy crew from us!
