Spring is Here!

Finally after months of cold temperatures and snow, Spring is here! Marilyn has been battling a cold and cough for about ten days now and is going stir crazy from being kept inside. So today, the sun was shining and the temps were warmer so we broke out of the house and went to the zoo.
And of course we took baby. Baby is Marilyn's best friend. They do EVERYTHING together, so it was no surprise that she needed to join us at the zoo. The surprise was the way Marilyn interacted with her.

Yes, she is riding on Marilyn's shoulders. All around the Plains and through the zoo, Marilyn carried her on her shoulders. Marilyn showed her the elephants and yelled, "HELLO ELEPHANTS". Then asked if she would like to return to the park. Of course baby was game, so Marilyn told her they would be there soon. I am amazed at the detailed conversations (albeit one sided) that Marilyn carries on with baby.... for hours!

All her idea and such a hoot!

Baby did enjoy a few times down the slide, but then she was positioned on the bench next to Hunter and I so we could all watch. I love her determination as she swings above the slide!
Yeah for warmer weather! Welcome Spring!

She's bigger! We've only been gone two weeks and she is so much bigger already. I love her friend Baby - but what's up with Baby not wearing any of the cute clothes that she has? I would personally be quite motion sick from seeing the world upside down and backwards all of the time; but I am so happy that Marilyn has a friend to play with. Miss you guys!

Glad you made there before the rain came in! Looks like great fun on a beautiful day.

Sometimes I just look at this post for a giggle because I think the picture of Marilyn with her doll baby all bent backwards on her shoulders is sooo, sooo funny! I love that little girl! She has such a wonderful personality... just like her mama! Hope you all are well!! XOXO
