On Friday, since Carrie was working and Ma’am is on vacation, Allie Claire got to come spend the day with us! When she got to the house, Annabelle was still sleeping. So I put her to work. She had to earn her keep. (ha).
That didn’t last long, before Allie decided it was high time that “Ann-Bell” woke up and played. So off, we went to wake her up!
“Ann-Bell” was so excited to see Allie, even if she did wake her up, which is big, because let me tell you, “Ann-Bell” loves her sleep.
The girls played for a little while, then we got AB dressed and ran into town to pick up their Father’s Day gifts. (We took them a couple weeks ago to Do Art and they painted something for the Dads again this year, so they were ready to be picked up.)
When the girls get to ride together in the car, they always hold hands and swap toys. It’s so cute. While we were in the car, Allie was calling my name, which sounds a little like, “Nanny” and I said, “what baby?” that’s when she pulled out the “luvs you” card, which of course ensured that she would be getting Chick-fil-A for lunch, a pop-sicle when we got home, and anything else she wanted. (ha.) It’s kind of funny, too, that all through-out the day, Allie would want or need something and she’d call for her momma. She’d say, “Momma, Momma (then realize her momma wasn’t there, and she’d continue) Mean-Nanny” So it sounded like she was calling me, “Mean Annie”… too funny.
When we got home, we changed into bathing suits (Allie borrowed one from AB and borrowed a pair of crocs, too, which Carrie is going to have to buy her a pair, because she loved them….so much, in fact, that she tried to take them home with her!)
We headed outside to play in the shade. I had the girls all set up with the water hose, toys, pool and splash mat. They played in the pool and even took turns holding the water hose.
Then they played in the playhouse
and rode the 4-wheeler.
When we made it back inside, I gave the girls a bath and just knew they’d take the nap of their lives. AB laid down for a nap, and Allie watched some tv and crashed on the living room floor. I’d made her a nice soft pallet, but she didn’t want anything of it…
After that, they decided to take turns riding in the baby stroller. AB pushed Allie around then she got in it. When Allie started pushing AB, she hollered, “Hold tight, Bill, hold tight!” (She sometimes calls her ‘Belle’ which sounds like, “Bill”). It was too funny…
