after a beautiful weekend we were hit with the rainy yuckies today.
aubrey and i stayed in to clean and play.
riley asked me in the morning to come see her for lunch even though it wasn't thursday.
so we did.
she was happy to see us when we walked up and aubrey was so sweet surrounded by big kids in the hallway patiently looking for her sister.

we couldn't have our usual picnic so we just got a chocolate milkshake to share and then drove around the park for 30 minutes. found a few new spots to try next week and talked.


the last few weeks riley has been staying up way too late reading (surprised?!:)). we told her she needed to come up with her own plan to get to sleep earlier and she did. so far this week she has been in bed reading by 7:45 and lights out by 8:15. what a difference it has made. i see those sweet smiles again.:)

aubrey has been doing the sweetest thing with her sisters at night.
after bath and teeth, the girls pretend to get in bed and aubrey sings them to sleep and tucks them in.
my heart just melts
and so does theirs.
she sings the sweetest lullabies and sometimes makes up ones of her own.
she kisses them on the head,
asks them if they are cozy,
tells them to sleep tight then closes the door.

janey says she practically falls asleep it's so sweet.
they are all in love with this new little nightly ritual.

we are expecting a high of almost 80 today then a high of 43 on friday!

...happiest moment of the day so far...
riley kissing aubrey goodbye when we dropped her off

have a happy day,
