Addie took her cousins to a new favorite... the local splash park! Right now Addie just enjoys the show. Maybe next year she'll join in. It was a fun time, followed by a delicious meal at Bean Sprouts.

A New Skill

With my Mom's old (but great) sewing machine, I have learned the basics of sewing. I first started with a few table runners and over the weekend my Mom assisted as I made my first baby dress! It was pretty easy and I just love the satisfaction of completing something like that. My Mom and I found a shop in Madison called Stitcher's Crossing that has super cute fabrics, which makes all the difference in a project like this.

The dress fits Addie perfectly! I am already dreaming of the next one I will make!
