|Maddie and Izzie|
Anyway, like I said, I went to Kohl's looking for some cute clothes for the girls. I was sadly dissapointed. As I have been with Carters, Target, and The Children's Place this fall. I'm not loving the "new" look. I hate the plaids and the Eighties look that has come in even for toddlers. The colors are strange and depressing too. There are lots of weird patterns and dull colors available. So far I've managed to pick out some cute clothes, but am not thrilled with anything. And I can't seem to find any comfortable play dresses! Everything is stodgy and stiff. Hopefully I'll luck into some cute clothes soon. In the mean time, when the weather dips, I have at least enough that the girls won't freeze.
This afternoon I took the girls to the park to play for a bit before naptime. I was hoping to run off some of the excessive energy that they seemed to posses this morning. They did lots of climbing and running and seemed to be enjoying themselves. I was surprised that we were the only ones at the park, even though it was just our neighborhood park. The weather was nice enough I figured I'd run into some other mom or dad out with their kids. Near the park was a small grove of trees that had dropped a bunch of crab apples. The girls had a lot of fun playing with these. They carried them around, threw them a bunch, rolled them down the slides, played "store" with them, and eventually tossed them all in the creek. I love natures playthings!

|Maddie running, one of her favorite pastimes. I'm also loving the fact that both girls love to go barefoot outside.|
