I just realized that this afternoon was the first time Addie has played in a backyard. Crazy! I spent my entire childhood in this backyard; climbing trees, digging holes, riding bikes, running through sprinklers. It's hard to believe that playing outside in a yard is new for Addie. I can mark that as a con on the list of pros and cons of living overseas in a third world country. Anyhow, as you can see from the pictures, Adelaide loved being outside. It was a pleasant day and she ran around picking up rocks and stepping on pine cones. Grandma even let her pick some of the very first daffodils that bloomed. Grandpa took her on a walk with her tricycle and then she discovered the swing. The fresh cool Pacific Northwest air made Addie hungry for dinner tonight. Seeing her in the backyard that I grew up in was pretty priceless.
