The Arboretum!

Fridays have been our special family day since we've been home.  We've gone to the aquarium, zoo, and now the Arboretum!  And, of course, we have to capture every event with lots of pictures!  We definitely went to the Arboretum with picture-taking in mind today.  And, Joelle didn't let us down... we got some really cutie patootie pictures of her!  
 Cheesy enough for you?!!!

 This picture looks really sweet but we were having a serious conversation on how NOT to do a cheesy smile!
And, then it was time to force that sweater off of her body.  She has a thing for buttons, and buttoning each one of them.  

 Explains these two pretty well :)
 Oh my goodness... precious little girl right here!

 And we actually got a couple of family shots!  PTL for self timer!

I'm definitely glad we became members at the Arboretum so that we can have lots more fun days like this!  Can't wait for beautiful weather so we can enjoy it even more!


  1. Looks like you guys had a blast! You are taking to parenting like a fish to water! Love her in those bright colors! :)
