Girls Just Want To Have Fun

Today was an amazing day spent with my little lady! We started our day out touring three different preschools in three hours. (Toby and I are talking about move her to preschool but we can't decide if we are going to do it this year or wait until next year). Paisley was such a trooper! She enjoyed meeting/talking to new people and playing with all the new toys.

We took advantage of the nice weather today with a picnic in the park. Paisley loved it. She talked the whole time. Talked about the wind, the bugs, the animals and she even talked TO the birds in "Bird English" - her words not mine. It went something like this "Mommy its very windy!" "Mommy look that that bug. Hit it!" "I see a squirrel mommy, I think he is hungry." "Tweet. Tweet. That's Bird English for Hello Birdie." "Mommy that was very polite of me to say hi to the bird." (Seriously, I don't know where she gets this stuff from)

After lunch we walked the gardens. We are so lucky to live in a town with so many nice parks. Gage Park is one of the best. It has amazing gardens, a pool, a carousel, a train and the zoo (just to name a few of the yummy goodies that this park has to offer). Paisley has entered a stage where we have to work to get a good smile out of her. She would rather make faces at the camera.

She was so well behaved all morning that I treated her with a ride on the carousel.

Followed by a ride on the mini train. This picture was courtesy of the nice lady in the car ahead of us that offered to take a picture of us if I would return the favor and take a picture of her and her little boy.
After the park we headed home for a nap. As I walked out of her room she asked me "Mommy is our girl day over now?" I told her that it was only half way over and that we had more stuff to do after nap time.
After our nap (yes I napped too, it is one of my most favorite things to do) we went shopping for Father's day gifts, we made dinner and ended our day with a swim at the Y. The highlight of my day came at bed time when Paisley said "Mommy, thank you for my very best girls day." I hope she remembers this day always, I know I will!

I'm am so jealous, it sounds like you guys had a blast! I can't wait until Fiona and I can do this kind of thing-but then I would be wishing for her to grow up faster and I don't want that either :).

Oh, and I see those sandals fit her, I meant to ask you about that.
