We've managed to do a few fun things other than change poopy diapers: Last Monday, Sophie and I had a chance to visit beautiful New Quarter Park and enjoy the playground there. We hadn't been there in a long time, and I was amazed at how much better she was at climbing than she was the last time we visited.

After we got tired of the playground, we explored some of the hiking trail loops in the park. The two trails we tried were .15 and .2 miles long, which was perfect for an easily-distracted 3-year-old. One of the distractions was this amazing fallen tree and its huge root ball.

Keegan took a business trip to Charleston, SC this week, so we got lots of help from sweet Grandma and from Grandpa, too.

On Friday, Sophie wowed me with her writing skills. She loves to practice writing letters and numbers on this dry erase board.

Last night we had a great date night - we attended the annual fundraiser for Sophie's preschool. We had a great time with our friends from school, and we even won a raffle prize! We got tickets to the VA Aquarium, the VA Living Museum, and a pool membership for a neighborhood pool that is just a short bike ride away. We are looking forward to swimming with friends this summer!
