She still helped do the dishes though!DSC_4896 IMG_20160301_123400052 The pantry is a great place to hide from mom and dad (and open a bag of chips nearby for a quiet snack.).IMG_20160301_172331262 We got a new tricycle for Emmie that has sides on it.  More for our peace of mind than hers.IMG_20160302_114252904 IMG_20160302_114315348_HDR Just taking a picture with The Godfather of Funk.  Our city has undertaken a great art project.  Local artists were commissioned to paint the light boxes all over the city.  When we visited downtown in March, the kids had to get a picture with the James Brown box.IMG_20160305_132443079_HDR Our annual PJ Day at Bruster’s Ice Cream.  If ya’ll have one near you, every March, they offer free ice cream if you come in your pjs!  It’s totally worth the embarrassment.IMG_20160307_181305498 Emmie received this crocheted bunny rabbit as a gift from a neighbor.  This bunny has been through a CT scan, surgery and many other things faithfully.  Emmie named him Hop Hop and loves to take him on adventures.  The other day, she had Hop Hop holding hands with Baby so they could take a nap.  I really need to see if I commission our neighbor to make an identical one so that Hop Hop can get a bath in the washing machine without causing major trauma to Emmie.
