I want to remember yesterday forever. Nothing particularly special happened, but it was just a day where you can't stop smiling because it's been fulfilling and fun. It was just like every other Wednesday in that we woke up and got ready to go to music time...except it was gorgeous outside! Not a cloud in the sky and no jackets were needed. We go to St. Paul's Church where Mr. Music, as we call him, puts on an amazing and free singing time for kids. He is incredible and has bells, scarves, hula hoops, you name it for the kids to use.
After music time we walked over to the library and made it to the bathroom in time for Caroline who said she needed to go. Now that put a big smile on my face. Way to go Caroline! Olive stayed happy and cozy in the stroller and Caroline held my hand as she walked on the small granite wall when we left. We stopped by the park on our way home and Caroline served me some bark that was delicious chicken soup, chocolate milk, and strawberry ice cream from her ice cream stand.
The day before I had wanted to make some of Kara's famous and perfect chocolate chip cookies, but sadly I let the thought of hand washing more dishes stop me. That says a lot because I REALLY wanted those cookies. Yesterday though, with the bright sun and my spirits very high, I decided to try to make a taste of Salt Lake's Dodo Restaurant and attempt Toll House Cookie Pie. Doing dishes didn't stop me then. Caroline was eager to help and she carried her little stool across the kitchen from the counter to the mixer assisting me.
The pie was done just after dinner and it was hot and gooey and I got to enjoy it with my babe dad love and with vanilla ice cream.
I concluded that good weather does so much for me. There will be many more days like these!

Sounds delicious...I am glad you didn't let dishes get in the way of the pie! I love days like that--fun and carefree. I hope you have more days like that too!

Oh, and good job Caroline on making it to the potty! That is awesome!

Sounds like a deeelightful day!! Just think, in about 8 weeks we can have more days like that. Can't wait. We'll have to make the tollhouse cookie dough pie here.

Yay Caroline on the potty training success. Keep up the good work!!

I love those perfect days that are so wonderful for no reason, but I never remember to write about them. You are always so good at focusing on the positive, I need to work on that.
