A Viking

Carissa went to McDonald's with the grandparents yesterday and was enjoying the toy and "hat" that came with the meal.

The Wagon

Carissa spends much of her outside time behind our house on the deck. Lately she likes to sit in her wagon. On this particular day, she also had her baby doll and a cup of milk with her. She was living the dream life.

Summertime is *Almost* Here

We've been enjoying being outside on our deck like crazy lately. Carissa would live outside, if she could. Summertime and sweet tea, here we come.

**By the way, Carissa now knows that she drinks milk and daddy drinks sweet tea. She told me the other day.**

Big Eating

Just so everyone knows, Carissa feels that she must eat like a big girl.

Carissa and her friend Corbin played a lively game Battleship on Saturday at another friends birthday party. They seriously sat down at the game all by themselves. That's awesome.

2010 St. Pat's Parade

We had a blast this last weekend here in Rolla. At Missouri S&T, they've been celebrating the 102nd Best Ever St. Patrick's Day on campus and the parade was Saturday. Here at church we collected and gave away 800 hotdogs, coffee, and hot chocolate before the parade. When we got done there we walked a few blocks to enjoy the parade ourselves. After about an hour and a half of the parade, Carissa was getting tired of it. But she walked away with some fun beads.

Vineyard Leaders Retreat

We had our annual Vineyard Leaders Retreat this past weekend. We've had it at Camp Mihaska the past several years and it was beautiful this year. The sun was out and the spring was amazing.

She's Ready For Summer

We've got the capri pants and sandals busted out and we are ready for summer. We had a beautiful day today. We even ate lunch on our deck and Carissa got to run around in the yard. She loves being outside.

Fun at the Playground

The weather was fantastic this past weekend. We got spend some time at a local park and Carissa is getting big enough to really enjoy the play gym.

Hanging Around The House

This is probably Carissa's favorite way to be dressed around the house. Mom's shoes and no pants. And of course watching Barney 6 inches from the screen. We honestly try to keep her from doing that.

Carissa loves my sunglasses. Too bad they're a bit too big for her.

Sunday Dress

The weather is slowly getting warmer here and Carissa just can't be outside enough. She was all dressed up for church and wanted to get out.
