Army Crawler

Stephen and Michelle arrived safely last night and we are so glad they are here.  The girls didn't give them a break after arriving at such a late hour.  Nope, they woke up bright and early and were excited to see their auntie and uncle.

Kiki was so excited to see them that she decided to learn and show off a new skill.  She's been hinting at it for a long time, but it wasn't until yesterday at Sabbath School that it seemed she was really close to army crawling.  She saw a toy and started dragging herself over to it.  It wasn't very far, but it was pretty impressive all the same.  Then, this morning, she just went nuts.  She crawled all the way across the room.  You can tell she finds her new freedom very liberating.  She's also been getting up on all fours, so she's toying with regular crawling.  I'm not used to this kind of mobility so early!  She's one determined little lady, though, so I should have expected nothing less from her.

This morning we went on a wild goose chase for some breakfast.  We originally wanted to take them to the best bakery in town, McFarland's.  To our chagrin, it is closed on Sundays and!  Then we headed to Flat Rock to another little bakery...same thing.  Then we decided to go to this cute little dinner called Pop's.  You guessed it...closed.  We ended up at Cracker Barrel, which was kind of a let down.  It was fun, though.  I really think that every restaurant should have a built in store, but that's just my humble opinion.

After breakfast, we came home, took showers and took it easy for a few hours.  Then we decided to go to the Dupont State Forest to show them the waterfalls.  We had just finished the hike to the falls when the torrential rains started.  This wouldn't have been too horrible if we didn't have a hungry toddler and an infant along.  That complicated the situation, but we decided to sit it out under a covered picnic area.  It was still quite a majestic view in spite of the rain.  After it calmed down, we hiked back and took them to our all time favorite Mexican Restaurant, Papas and Beer.  It was sooo good and they both really liked it.

The evening has been pretty low key.  Just watching the Kansas game.  Mark is currently a few inches from the t.v. and doesn't seem to notice that anyone else is in the room.  March Madness is always a very tense time in the Murrill house.

Well, I better go.  I'm working on the hair accessories I told you I was needing to finish up.  I'll put up pictures when I get them all done.  I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
