No Stitching but some cute kids

My mother was in town this week and flew back yesterday.  We had a lot of fun.  I took 2 days off so I had 3 1/2 days to spend with her.  Still not stitching but I've started a new project, scanning in my photos that I took with my old 35 mm camera and digitizing them. 

We discovered that the girls LOVE going to walks in the stroller.  We couldn't do it for most of this summer because it's too hot to do anything much outside.  But now that it's cooled off to the 80s, things like that are possible.

So, here is Zoé making Snickerdoodle cookies with Grandma.  She liked taking the dough and putting it in the cinnamon sugar.  Apparently, she also decided not to wait on baking the cookies and just ate the dough ball.  Then, she refused to eat a baked cookie.

We went to this park in Gainesville that has a large playground, a kid-sized train and a small zoo.  And Zoé had her first ride on a playground swing.

Then Grandma took us all out for ice cream and Adèle had her first taste. I think she's a fan.

Zoé has also become quite the colorer.  We ordered some Crayola Jumbo Crayons off Amazon (because surprisingly, they're not sold in stores, we've looked everywhere.  They only have large).  So, she takes on in each hand and goes to town.  She's pretty good about not coloring the table.


  1. Such beautiful babies! Zoe is ambidextrous! Great idea to scan your photos!
