Saturday, Here In The Park...

I think it was the fourth of July!

OK, I wasn't really in the park, and it's really, I guess I got a song stuck in my head.  Sorry.

Yesterday, Chloe was the cutest little girl ever.  And the day before that, and the day before that, get the point.  Cora put her hair up in duel ponies!  She was also wearing a Beatles T-shirt I insisted we buy.  I think she looks awesome in it.   
  She likes to play with my shoes when I leave them near her.  It gave me a chance for a photo, so I did not complain.
 Cora's cold has taken a turn for the miserable.  She was up all night coughing.  She moved to her chair so she could breathe.  She ALSO took care of Chloe when she awoke, and I ended up having had a pretty restful night.  I have to say, my wife is a wonderful woman.  Cora did not feel well all day, so I sent her to bed to rest.  She is still feeling somewhere under miserable.  I wish I could do more than just shovel cold meds into her.

My parents dropped by for a little while today.  Chloe welcomed the new entertainers, since I was beginning to wear on her a bit.
 They both read her stories and played with her and in general entertained her.  I took a few photos and had a good visit.  She particularly liked Grandma's lap it seemed, but Grandpa's was acceptable, too.
You can't help but love this picture!

It rained outside for most of the day...which, considering the choices, is better than raining INSIDE.  As we cleaned, I watched the birds outside.  I noticed, yesterday, that the first goldfinches had returned.  Today, I watched them eating our seed.  We have gold finches, house finches, sparrows, red-winged blackbirds, sometimes starlings and a finch of some sort that has an orange crest...I cannot wait to see the birds we attract this summer!

The house is semi-clean and we are relaxing...a bit.  It was a good day.

Marley wore her "Hard Day's Night" shirt to church this morning! COOL! I hope Cora feels better. So sorry to hear that it's not getting anywhere. Vick's on the chest is the only thing that works for me, but my friend told me that the vick's plug ins are AWESOME!!!
