Swinging at the Park

Joe wasn’t very impressed with the swings last time he tried them.

He seems to be warming up to the idea now:

Happy Mothers Day!

Speaking of Mothers Day, if you have 13 minutes to kill and a hanky nearby, watch this beautiful little movie.

I started my day with a lovely breakfast in bed, followed by a lovely giggly baby in bed. And I think this is the first day in two weeks that it hasn’t even threatened to rain!

With the sun out and the ground finally dry, I took Joe outside for some photos. It was nearing naptime so we didn’t get any smiles out of him, but how cute is he:

Yesterday we gathered up two carloads of old clothes, books and assorted “stuff” for the annual Richmond Mommies yard sale. We made about $150 but didn’t get rid of nearly everything.

We did witness an intersting twist in 21st century bargain-hunting, though: A man sauntered up to our table, pulled out a small electronic wand and begain scanning the ISBN code on the back of each of our books. The wand was connected to his BlackBerry, where he had a program that would transmit the ISBN code online and tell him what the average selling price was. He got three books from us for $1.50, and said he expected to get about $30 for them online. Crazy!

A Perfect Spring Day

Today it was about 70 degrees, without a cloud in the sky. We went to Maymont and strolled around the grounds there. They have a petting zoo and lots of lovely little gardens — plus BEARS!

After we’d walked around the whole place, we plopped down on a grassy hill and just enjoyed the sunshine for a bit.

Daddy, you funny

How cute are these two?
