The first time I took Evie out on a quick mommy-daughter date she was so confused about why Lyla wasn't in the car seat next to hers. I said "It's just you and me, babe!" We headed to Target and Starbucks and shared a cake pop while we meandered through the aisles. We weren't even there to do grocery shopping! It was so fun to relax a bit and just focus on her.
Ever since that little date whenever we get into a car alone Evie will say from the back "Just you and me, babe!" It's so darn cute, and it makes me so glad to have this time together. Some days are spent just running around doing errands, but we also manage to sneak in play dates. Whatever we're doing, just spending that time with her is my favorite.
Here are some pictures from a recent park trip. :)
We were in the area, so I took her to the park by our old house. Man, did it bring back memories. Lyla and I LIVED at that park when she was a toddler. This bouncy grasshopper was always a favorite back then too. :)
We picked up the movie Land Before Time the other day, so Evie kept calling this dino Cera. :)
When we first started going to this park Lyla was too tiny to sit on that bench by herself. We'd lift her up onto it and her tiny legs would dangle. That feels like just yesterday!
Swinging has always been both girls' favorite thing about the park.
They had a new cool swing that let us swing together. It was so fun! Such a good day.
