Sweet afternoon

We have all been a little under the weather – a little tired – the weather has not been so great. Yesterday, Sunny and I fasted and happily watched our little one eat her little heart out. We went to temple in the afternoon and had some friends over at night to break the fast. It was a really nice night. We were all up pretty late. Ella has been sleeping through the night. That’s a beautiful thing. Right before she goes to bed we ask her if she will sleep through the night and she looks at us and says, “I will sleep through the night” with a big smile on her face.

Sunny went to the gym this morning and Ella and I slept in. When Sunny came home, we all pretty much just hung around the house. Our energy level was pretty low and it was cloudy out. At around 4:30 we decided to take a walk to the carousel. All of a sudden it was beautiful outside. The sun came out and the sky was blue and we were all coming out of our fatigue. Sunny and Ella went around the carousel once and then Sunny and I were switching and all of a sudden we heard, “Sunny, Lauren…” it was Helen, Ron, Stella and Juliet. I guess they had the same idea that we had. We all rode the carousel together and then went to the park where they have all the slides. We all had a lot of fun. Ella and Juliet have pretty bad colds, but they just played and played. Ella fell asleep pretty early tonight – she was exhausted.

Here we are looking very serious…we’re about to go down the big slide

Here’s Sunny going down the slide with Stella and Juliet

There’s nothing like Ella’s laughter


Here are Ella and Juliet hanging out together. Juliet is really strong and can actually hang there by herself for about 10 seconds. Ella hung for about 5 seconds.
