Gonna Buy Me a Dog

Time to play with paints!  It's been a long time coming, but I finally broke out the watercolors!  She had a great time and it kept her busy for a good part of the day!

So one of my better "investments" was a roll of plastic "table cover" that they use in restaurants... it was perfect for covering up her little play table.  She didn't actually need it, because (altho she does NOT paint within the lines) she kept the paints only on the paper!
After playing arts & crafts for a while, it was time for a much needed break... time to play with Penny!
     She loves to spend time cuddling with her puppy... they are SO attached to each other

Clam Caravan

What a fantastic Sunday... first, we had an amazing yummy breakfast of bacon and blueberry pancakes!  Marla made them with the blueberries we all helped pick!  How cool... and according to Rachel, it was "DEEEE-licious!"

After we finished breakfast, it was off to the beach to try our hand at clamming!  So here is the funny part... Daniel couldn't find the clamming license (yes, you actually need to get a license to collect clams from the beach).  He insisted it was no problem because nobody ever stops him.  Marla kept telling him to stop saying that or he'd jinx himself... well, sure as could be, we weren't there 15 minutes when the "Clam Police" came over to ask for our license! LOL...  Here is Uncle Daniel talking to the officer!

We only stayed for about an hour... in that time, Marla found a few clams, Daniel found LOTS of clams, and Rachel and I?  Well, we had a fun time digging in the sand!
It wasn't the white powdery sand we have down in Florida, but it was fun to dig in!

We had some of the smaller clams for dinner, and the rest are destined for chowder... 
It was a nice day at the beach

We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
