April was a fun month for us! The weather is still wonderful here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, so we are playing outside a lot! One day, we explored Inner Harbor Park, and Afton was a big fan of all the climbing opportunities on the playground!
We all worked up an appetite, so our lunch at Baja Beach really hit the spot.
Another Saturday, Afton experienced her first Egg Hunt!
She wasn't too interested in finding eggs, and she HATED the Easter Bunny.
But once we got all that out of the way, we had a good time playing downtown and at the Little Children's Park. How cool is that giant xylophone?!
At home, doing puzzles has become a favorite.
Afton is still into trying to dress herself, and we love hearing her say, "tutu!"
But her favorite thing to put on is hair bows. All at once, around her waist. I guess I've been doing it all wrong! ;)
A new favorite outdoor activity: blowing bubbles! "Bubbles" is a word she loves to say, too.
Unfortunately, she also loves to play with my iPhone (even though she has her own toy version). It's pretty funny when she holds it up to her ear and says "Hello!" but as you can see, it's not so funny when I take it away from her. :/
I've stayed in the habit of taking photos of Afton every Sunday before church. Have to make sure all her cutest clothes are documented!
This next fashion statement is extra special. This cute dress and bag were handmade by Afton's grandma! Her talent as a quilter is second to none, and I'm so glad she's branching out into clothing! :) (This dress is reversible, too! I hope you can handle the suspense of wondering what the fabrics look like on the other side. ;)
I saved the most important Sunday of all for last. Easter was a joyful day as usual! Afton must have forgotten how much she hated the Easter Bunny, because she was pretty happy about her basket!
We were amazingly not running late and even had enough time to ask someone to take a picture of us all together before church!
We shared a lovely and delicious meal with friends at their home that afternoon. Check out this view!
What a blessed day! Stay tuned for one more April adventure: our trip to Virginia in honor of a very special award winner is coming up next!
