Rainy Weekend

This weekend was our first rainy weekend of the rainy season. After 6 months of sunshine the rain is greeted with great welcome and wonder. We took the opportunity to have some good fun inside and outside. First we built a fort out of blankets, clothespins and chairs. Then Lillian filled the tent with all of her stuffed toys, which was great fun. Next up was a walk in the rain complete with rain boots, slicker and umbrella. Our walk in the rain was not just for the pleasure of it, we went over to Lillian's friend Rebbecca's house for a party Saturday evening.

Rebbecca's mommy Katherine, is very crafty. After spending the previous evening at their craft pad, we all spent our Sunday afternoon working on a project that has been on the back burner for nearly a year: a quilted banner with Lillian's name on it for her room. Eric created the patterns for the lettering while Kristen did the sewing. Lillian helped out by fetching things like pencils, ribbon and scissors, and lending moral support. The result is pretty snazzy!
