Garden Buddies

After being sick and required to stay away from babies and little kids we were super excited to get the green light from the doctor on Monday to start socializing again. That very day we rushed down to Grandma and Grandpa Fords for a play date with Aunt Susan and Cousin Samantha.


It had been a long time since both Virginia and Samantha had gotten to play. They have been doing daily skype sessions to keep up with each other. But it was so funny to watch them as they slowly walked towards each other giving each other the once over. Then it was off to play and grab goldfish from Grandpa Ford.

Both Virginia and Samantha love going outside and playing. After dinner we made a promise to let both girls go out back and run around as Grandpa Ford watered the many flowers. I say run, but really Virginia is still working on being confident in the grass. Samantha on the other hand is a little speed demon in the grass. 


Both Virginia and Samantha were huge fans of picking flowers. It was just too cute watching Virginia bend over and smell the flowers. She thought it was great picking flowers and taking them to Grandma Ford. 





Wednesday was also a fun filled day. Mom, Dad, Susan, and Samantha came up to my house to help put in a small flower bed and grab lunch with Lisa. Unfortunately Reiggin got called into work early so we had to think fast on what to do for transportation for all of us. Lets just say that if the circus ever needs a family clown car we are perfect for the job.

We had lunch with Lisa at this small burger place. I remembered why I always have a stroller in my car. It was not to fun carrying Virginia up the hill to the burger place. After lunch Lisa took us to her workplace and introduced us to all her co-workers.

As we were making our way back home, it was so cute watching Virginia and Samantha make each other laugh. I believe that they will be best buds. We finished the day by putting in the flowers and playing outside with bubbles and sidewalk chalk.



Virginia was super excited to be Grandma and Grandpa's garden buddy. I believe she would have played in the dirt all day if I allowed her. Grandpa would put the dirt in the pot and Virginia would help level it off. She may have snuck a little taste of the dirt when we were not looking.



I have had a great time catching up with family and can't wait for Saturday to come. Grandma and Grandpa Ford are going to babysit Virginia so me and Reiggin can have a date night. Reiggin  doesn't get to many weekends off so this is a real treat. Well hope everyone is having a great week. I will leave you with one of my favorite photos of Virginia and Samantha. You just have to wonder what is going though their heads.
