Wednesday Fun

Today, we went to the pool for a few hours and Lilly had a blast!  She ran into a little girl from preschool and they had so much fun in the pool together.  It really is amazing as a parent to sit back and watch your child make there own friends!  We got home and Lilly took "rest time"  AKA - Nap Time.  I'm not  allowed to call it a Nap because I guess in the 4 year old world Nap time just isn't cool.   In the Mommy world it is very Cool!!  

Now, we are under a severe Thunderstorm warning and we had an earthquake today!! How crazy is that an earthquake in Northeast Ohio!  I didn't feel it because we were driving home from the pool.    I hope the storm passes so she can have swim lessons but for now all we can do is wait.  

In my spare time today , we whipped up a batch of my grandma's raisin oatmeal cookies!  These are Daddy's favorite and he feels a little neglected with working afternoons.  So he will have a Surprise tonight when he gets home.
