Father's Day in Michigan

Nate's second Father's Day. Just look at that grin!?!

Matilda in the backyard of the cabin practicing her walking skills

Come with me...

Matilda and I at the Fernwood Botanic Gardens...they were beautiful!

Exploring the Gardens as Nate was in an outdoor yoga class close by...

Because of the thunderstorms and 70 mph winds that we experienced Friday night, the entire Harbor County had no electricity. Which meant no hot water. So after a day of 80+ degree weather, yoga classes for both of us, and several layers of bug spray, we headed down to Lake Michigan to cool/clean off.
Walking to the lake

Matilda was not too interested in the water.

She preferred sunbathing

And had fun playing in the sand with her new favorite thing...sticks!

She kept a close eye on the water....checking on her daddy by waving and shouting "HI!".
We had such a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to going back soon!

Spring Time Park Pics

With the weather this spring being so incredibly gorgeous, we practically have been living outside. If we are not napping or in a class, we are outside at a park, playdate or picnic. Last week, we met some friends at the Nature Museum. The butterfly exhibit was the real destination and it didn't disappoint. There were butterflies everywhere and Matilda was pointing like crazy trying to keep track of them all. Now on our walks when she spots them she gets excited and says "Buh!".
On Saturday morning, Nate dropped us off at the Green City Market around 7am. We found some wonderful treats then headed over to the playground where Matilda made a new friend. She climbed on the ape's lap...just begging for a photoshoot.
She also had fun with these two. It's pretty cute how she pets and tries to snuggle with them like she does with Mora. I had to step in though, when she had her open mouth on the cubs back, making her kissing noises!?!

And for those who aren't tired of watching Matilda swing, here's yet another clip!

1 Year Appointment

Yesterday, Matilda visited her pediatrician for her 1 year check up. She is now a 'whopping' 17 pounds, 12 ounces and is 31" tall. She is in the 5 th % for weight and 95th % in height. This has been her trend since birth...very tall and slender and is still the sweetest little girl we know!
