Crafts are fun. (Right, Gene?!)

This past Friday, we headed to craft night at our church. Gene vowed that if they brought out fake leather wallets and made us sew them together, we were leaving. Gene's not such a big fan of "crafts". However, he did have fun when he saw Esther enjoying herself. It was a tie between who had more fun, Esther or I (or is it Esther and me?). I was in craft bliss...playing with beads, paints and sand and not having to clean it up!

Critiquing her handiwork.

Saturday was gloriously sunny. So we headed to the very packed downtown Kirkland to explore.
Esther wasn't too sure about getting her feet wet. Maybe it had something to do with all the duck poop.

"Ewww. Look Mom."
E kept stealing balls from poor defenseless children. We had to "help" her give them back.
She loves little boys.
Our future soccer player. Again, she took another little boy's ball, but he was very patient with Esther (and very interested in Gene's tattoos).

My dad and his wife made it back safe and sound from their trip abroad. And brought back this cute fairy princess outfit for Esther. OK, so I put it on over her PJs, but it still looks really cute.
