Today was "too hot" according to Anna. Too hot to just play outside. Her and her friends begged and pleaded for me to pull out the old blow-up swimming pool from last year. It's old and dirty and quite frankly seemed like too much work to set up, but I gave in and they had a ball!

These may be among the last pictures taken with my sweet Canon Elph that we've had for several years. It is our first digital camera. It's done me good, but was outdated 3 months after we got it. I've had a nice Nikon since my photography days in college, but alas it is a 35mm and of no use to me anymore...that is until I get my own dark room. Paul ordered my Nikon D200 last week and it arrived in the mail on Friday. I've been busy reading the book cover to cover and have been having fun playing around with all of it's fun features. Now, if only I could master photoshop!

Paul went out of town for 2 weeks and the day he left I tore my closet apart. It's layout has bothered me since we moved in 5 1/2 years ago and I'd had it! And since I was going to be alone for awhile, I decided to take on a big project. It was my first time using power tools and shopping for lumber myself. This is the before picture- closed in with little space for clothing and no shoe racks. Very messy and disorganized.

Among other things, my mom sent me home with a bag of balloons for the girls when I left Louisiana. Who knew Anna would be so delighted over such a small and simple thing. Almost daily she gets up into the cupboard and pulls out a balloon from the bag. She'll then blow it up just so she can watch it fly when let go...over and over again.

Today while Anna was at a neighbors playing and Lainie was napping, Ava and I got a little time together and I took her on the tramp. She liked sitting with me while we bounced a bit. She is nearly 9 months now and just starting to want to crawl. Maybe she'll be crawling by the time her daddy gets home.

The girls and I had lots of fun decorating our Easter eggs Monday night. Back when I was a kid there was only the dye kits, now there are egg tattoos, puffy paints, and stickers. So fun! Paul has been in Alaska on business for a week now and will be missing Easter with us this year, so I took my sister Jana's advice and filled my own basket. (Thank you Easter bunny for my new iPod shuffle! I'm so excited to use it after I officially get it in my basket.) I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!
