Week 11- Spring Has Sprung

This week, Daylight Savings Time went into effect, springing us forward into what feels like longer days since the sun stays up later into the evening. We also had some beautiful weather here in Knoxville, so we were able to spend more time in the great outdoors.

On Friday evening, Brad and I took Nora over to one of the local playgrounds so she could have some fun. This is something we like to do, in theory, but once we get there, it always ends up being stressful because there are bigger kids being big and rough-housing, completely oblivious to my toddler who is innocently trying to take her turn down the sliding board. On this particular day, we called it quits when they started filling their shirts up with gravel and throwing it down the sliding board. In the mean time, Nora had a grand ol' time.

Taking "Big Tep" (big steps)
As a Facebook friend of mine said, this is the fine line between pure joy and sheer terror.

On Saturday morning, it was my day to sleep in (yay!) so Brad and Nora took a little trip up to UT to walk around. Brad always takes her out of the house on Saturday mornings, and I think she's begun to look forward to that time alone with her Daddy.

Something else fun that we got to do on Saturday was visit with Laura, Isabella, and Amelia who were visiting from Birmingham. Once again, Penny played hostess, and a small group of Pratts were able to get together for a couple of hours. Isabella is 8 and Amelia is about to turn 6, so you'd think they wouldn't be too interested in playing with a 2 year old, but they were so sweet and played really well together.

Today is St. Patrick's Day, and since it's Sunday, we went to Dede and Grandpa's (Papa according to Nora) for lunch. While we were there, we celebrated Elisabeth's birthday. Nora and Elisabeth were both dressed festively in green.

Cutest little shamrock I've ever seen!
