These two little buddies are having so much fun. Nothing lightens up isolation than isolating with a friend!

On Valentine's Day we decorated sugar cookies with friends. I had thrown away my food dye and forgot, so I used beet powder to dye the frosting a really pretty magenta and felt super granola. As we were decorating cookies and chatting, my friend asked me what our Valentine's day traditions are. They're pretty limited, but I said that decorating sugar cookies is a tradition. And my girls were like, no it's not! And then I realized that for the last 2 Valentine's we've been in a Spanish speaking country, not decorating sugar cookies. I had a good chuckle over that.

We recently went to a petting zoo in CDA with some friends and the girls loved it! But now I'm worried I exposed my girls to the coronavirus?? (Only half joking...) But seriously, they had a good time. There were so many animals, so many children, and so many rules. I didn't get to spend much time in the pen with the animals, because our baby was not into it, but when I came back into the pen, Maeve was essentially the queen of the place. She loved opening and closing the little gates to the rabbit and guinea pig enclosures for anyone who wanted to enter or exit. This was most certainly a good time for my crew! (Except me... I swear, leaving the house is SO HARD! So grateful for good friends who are super supportive and will keep an eye on my kiddos!)

Gotta catch up on the old blog! First things first, on Thursday, we became licensed foster parents and on Friday evening we welcomed our first placement, a little boy. He's sweet and I feel like I'm in over my head but also like we have a handle on this too? I dunno, it's really strange to have a child dropped off at our house who we don't know. Lots of kisses, hugs and cuddles around here!

Right after we arrived home from camping at the Fire Lookout, we showered, re-packed and went camping in Idaho with friends. It was lovely. Just what I wanted!

Before our best friends left for Spain for the last month of summer (what? I know!), we met at the Splashpad for a picnic and some play time. We miss them like crazy and can't wait until they come back. Until then.. check out this cute crew!
