Hide and Seek

We have a hider on our hands.  I was washing the dishes this morning and noticed Virginia was up too something. I turned and saw her hiding one of her books in the tupperware cabinet. Then she went and grabbed the car keys off the table and put them in the pots cabinet. I just had to giggle when she noticed me  watching and quickly shut the cabinet door. I wish I had been able to take a picture, but she quickly moved on to something else once she saw me watching.

Virginia is becoming more and more adventurous day by day. She is also losing some of her shyness. She still takes some time to warm up to new people, but she is improving. We were at the consignment store in Hickory on Monday. They have a closed in area where kids can play with blocks as the parent shops. Virginia jumped in and started playing as I watched her. She was by herself at first then a little boy came climbing over the wall. I thought for sure Virginia would jump up and start whining for me to pick her up. To my surprise she started giggling and waving her arms. She even started to pickup blocks and hand them to the little boy to stack. It was so adorable.

That night we were in search of new shoes for Virginia. We started at the consignment store in Hickory hoping to find a good deal. We didn't have much success. We did come out with a pair of blue sandals, hair clip, and a new book. Off to Babies R Us thinking they would have a huge selection. We were wrong in assuming Babies R Us had a huge selection. They only had like two racks. I was a little sad, but we moved on to Shoe Carnival. Success, we find a very cute pair of pink Sketchers. Shoe Carnival had a small back wall of shoes. I was shocked at some shoes that were meant for babies and toddlers. They had clear high heeled shoes, the kind you would think strippers would wear. I mean really who is going to put their baby or toddler in high heeled shoes.

Reiggin was off again on Tuesday so we headed back to the playground for some fun. It was a lovely day not to hot and not to cold. Virginia had a blast on the slides, swings, and duck. Reiggin had lots of fun getting to use his new camera capturing shots of Virginia and I on the playground. I am really amazed at how much better pictures our new camera takes. They are ten times more clear and crisp then my old camera. The real challenge now is to see if Reiggin can teach me to use the manual setting on the camera. Yes I took two photography classes in college and I should know how to use the manual settings, but honestly I do not remember anything that I learned in those classes.

Well that about wraps up our week so far. Friday should be a great day. Grandma and Grandpa Ford are going to babysit Virginia as we head off to the Jim Avett CD Release Party. Yes we are going to the Avett Brother's father's concert. What can I say we love all things Avett!
