What kind of mom would I be if I didn't post as many pictures of these girls hugging as I could? We went to Olive Garden for Grandma's (Chris' mom's) birthday, and the girls shared a hug before we left! Trust me, the entire meal wasn't one big lovefest, but anything that ends like this doesn't seem so bad!
Later in the day, Chris took the girls out to play with bubbles -- they love bubbles! These days Grace has taken to attacking the bubbles instead of just running around catching them. You can see that here, along with Rachael carefully watching her big sister on the rampage:
They are always fun to watch!
The girls have been playing together a lot more lately, and it is so much fun to hear them! The other night, Grace asked Rachael if she wanted to play hide-and-seek. I said, "Gracie baby, I don't know if Rachael will understand that." She confidently replied, "That's okay! I'll teach her!" A little while later, I heard her saying to Rachael, "Okay, I'm gonna go count, but first I'll show you where to hide..." Hey, it worked for them!
Here is Grace, reading to Rachael. It just warms my heart to see moments like this!!!
While I'm here...
LET'S GO PHILLIES!
