Early bird

This morning Summer was up before I could crawl back in bed after my trip to the gym. 6:30 a.m. is time to be sleeping not creeping around the house. But, she was hungry and wanted to watch cartoons. She had some pineapple and strawberries while I crawled back in bed only to be awaken half an hour later so she could ask me the name of her new beanie baby bear, Halo. I've got to teach her to read so she can look at the tag herself whenever she forgets. :)

Yesterday, she tortured played with Thomas for a good while. We had lunch with my dad and hung out at the lake house for a while. Then we made a quick trip to Wal-mart to pick up a birthday gift for my niece. We are having a tea party at the English Rose tomorrow morning which will be a treat for us all. I just hope the girls will eat the little sandwiches they make. On the way home, Summer asked where we were going and I told her home. She said she wanted to go somewhere else, but didn't have anywhere in particular in mind. So, I suggested we go to the carousel (yeah, I rock like that). As soon as we parked, we hopped on the bike and headed to the park. We pulled up in front of an empty and noiseless carousel. Apparently, it was not open even though it was 4:15 and the hours of operation are from 3:00-6:00. The door was open, but no one was in there to work it so we hopped back on the bike and took a spin around the park. Then she decided that we should get off and play. So we ran across the field together a few times getting some exercise (her idea). Then we climbed on the animals surrounding the water fountains which were off due to the cold weather. It was fun and nice to be outside getting some fresh air.

Last night we went through three big boxes of stuffed animals and divided them into two different donation piles - one for the Discovery Museum and one for kids in Nicaragua. She only claimed two of the animals for herself - an angel bear (Halo) and a dog (Butch) like the one Memaw and Nanny have from when my nephew Sawyer was born. We are headed to the museum this morning for a PlayGym class. She is so excited and keeps asking if it is time to go. Guess I better get off here and get our bellies full so we will have energy to play.

How sweet that she donated the animals! I cannot pry the huge collection that Corinne has out of her hands. I may have to go incognito to lessen the load...
