Just the Girls!

Just got home from a wonderful and relaxing few hours at the pool...with only one child!!! After Josiah's t-ball game this morning, Callie and I headed to the pool. Jacob and Josiah went with daddy for a boys' day out. David took each of them on a "date" with him individually about a month ago, which both of them LOVED! They started asking at the beginning of the week when they got to have another "daddy" day. David decided to take them both today for a Boys Day - and they were so excited! I'm sure he forgot the camera, so I won't have any splendid pictures, but their hearts will be full and smiles big, I'm sure! I so enjoyed some time alone with Callie - I forgot how EASY it is with only one child (I hope that doesn't offend anyone....I don't mean it to sound mean...) Callie LOVED having the freedom to walk and swim anywhere she wanted - because I only had to watch her! It was great! I enjoyed just watching her - really watching her. They had a musician playing at the pool today and she'd stop playing and just dance a little bit. Such a sweet girl. I like having some girl time! :)

I'm at home with one child right now too and she's napping! It's absolutely heavenly! Ryan and Christian are at the park and duck pond. He didn't take the camera either, but I'm sure they're having fun! Enjoy your time with just Callie!! Precious times!

Daddy days are the best...my boys love them too! Sounds like a great mommy day too.

how fun---girl time will get sweeter and sweeter as the years go on, I am sure of it! I remember my dad taking me on dates too which was always fun because it was always somewhere "fancy"! :)

Clara loves daddy days too. Just be warned Callie will get used to that freedom quickly and will demand it even when it's not too convenient for you. Once on a mommy day, Jonathan tasted the freedom of walking through Wal-mart, helping me push the shopping cart. It's been a struggle to get him to sit in the shopping cart again since!
