Today I had a pretty mellow morning with the kids, just hanging out at home. Ava has a little cold so we couldn't go to the gym. :( But I did manage to get them dressed and to the toy store to buy some more sand and sand toys for our sand and water table. The weather was so warm today (88 degrees!) that we needed something fun and wet to do. They helped me clean the table since it had been out of use since last summer then we filled it with water and sand. They had a lot of fun, but made a big mess! Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of them playing with the table, but Dan did get some of the aftermath.
The kids were so cute this morning. While they were eating their snack they sat side-by-side on the couch with their arms around each other. I had to seize the opportunity and snap a picture. It's not often that they enjoy each other's company long enough for me to get my camera out! Also, when I was holding Ava this morning because she wasn't feeling good Drew came over and gave her a hug and said "I'm sorry you're sick. Can I pray for her?" I told him I thought that was a good idea and he folded his little hands and said "Dear God, Thank you for Ava and please make her better. Amen!" Melted my heart!
