good times

By Tara Zandra | June 13, 2006

Last night we spent some time in our back yard after dinner. The girls put on a Chinese New Year Parade. How does one put on a Chinese New Year parade, you ask? Well, child number one grabs one end of the jump rope and child number two grabs the other end. They then march around the back yard singing, and this is the key point, at the very top of their lungs “It’s a Chinese New Year Parade! Chinese New Year Parade! It’s a Chinese New Year Parade!” Well, you get the drift. Only threat of going inside immediately brought the noise level down to tolerable.

But fun was had and neither wanted to let go of that fun so first thing this morning they both took their cups of milk outside and sat in chairs together in their pajamas. Eventually Tabitha blew some bubbles but other than that, they just sat there enjoying the outside and eachother’s company. *Bliss*

Tonight was Kid’s Club but since it was a Father’s Day activity, just Tabitha and I went leaving Chris at home so as not to ruin the surprise. It stunk. They moved it to the back of the mall in the parking lot, I’m guessing to get people to the new Farmer’s Market. Kid’s Club people were to only people there and they were less organized than when it’s inside which resulted in completely jam-packed tables. We put the craft in my purse and decided to do it at home tomorrow. Tabitha and I walked around and it was really just sad. No one in the bounce house, no one in the obstacle course, no one listening to the singers, no one buying produce. Just no one! Can’t say it’s off to a very good start.

So Tabitha and I did some window shopping and enjoyed some baked goods before coming home. I’ve already got Daisy to bed and Tabitha and Chris are reading on the couch. The three of us are going to play charades, at Tabitha’s request, and then Chris and I have some comedy to watch.

    That’s an adorable pic of Daisy on the right. With the sailor-style outfit and the hoop, she reminds me of an old-fashioned girl, kind of like this painting by Renoir.
