A picnic at the park April, as is usual, has been a combination of brilliantly sunny days (see above) and rain. The girls have started to play in the backyard a little more but we've also had our share of indoor days, struggling through until dinner time. Putting Pearl to work With Pearl's recent birthday… Continue reading Life: A little bit of April
