A Lazy Day of Summer

I know… it’s been too long between posts!  I’ve been enjoying my summer and miraculously have managed to avoid my computer! I need to get caught up on some posts but for now, I’m going to talk about today.

All summer we’ve been talking about me bringing Lexi up to Savannah to have lunch with Daddy and while we were all there open a savings account for Lexi.  She had 4 banks full of money so today was the day.  This simple day turned out to be one of my favorite days of the summer.  I sort of expected Lexi to get upset about leaving her money at the bank but she didn’t.  She was just a few coins shy of $240!  She helped put the coins in the coin counter and then was rewarded with a Money Monster stuffed animal to help her remember to save her money.

After we left the bank we went to the Wild Wing Café’ (YUM!) for lunch.  After Geoff left Lj and I went to the fountain at Ellis Square.  Lexi was a bit apprehensive at first because she really didn’t want to get her “pretty dress” wet.  I had brought her a change of clothes in anticipation of visiting the square so I talked her into it.  As hot as it was sitting there watching her play, I have to say it was SOOOOOO much fun!  If only all of life was so easy as watching a child play in the water on a sunny day!  Here are some of my favorite pictures.

I thought I’d never get her out of the water but finally she was ready.  We then walked around to a few shops.  We lucked up on this one shop where everything was 50% off.  I found Lj a cute little dress made in India  and one for me to match.  We’ll have to work on a picture together.  She could NOT wait to get that dress on!  We went back to Geoff’s office and changed her.  She then entertained everyone in the office calling them “coconuts”.  Yes, she even called Geoff’s boss coconut!  LOL!

When Geoff walked us back to the car and buckled her into the car seat she said in her best pouty voice “I really miss my Daddy!”  Lexi couldn’t wait for me to get my “pretty dress” on once we were home.  I told Geoff I looked like I had on a Moo-Moo (sp??) and Lexi piped up with “Mommy you look like a Moo Cow!”  Such is the life in the day of the Mother of Lj!  Precious.  We enjoyed our day so much that I can’t wait to go back again with Sara and the boys!
