Rainy Days, the new Chick Fil-A, and some sweet moments of late

It's been raining quite a bit here, but this little girl doesn't seem to mind. She's a tad bit obsessed with her new rain gear... coming at me with her boots, saying, "MoMma... Boots!!!" as she sits down and motions for me to put them on her.

Last night we ventured to the new Chick Fil-A that opened with our good friends the Stephens. Addison started "Moo-ing" as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. She had so much fun playing with her bud, Carter. They "hugged" several times--here is a shot of one of those times.

Isn't this little guy adorable?

Loving her time in the toddler play area... Speaking of Chick Fil-A playgrounds... Have you ever noticed that these play areas are very loosely chaperoned at best. The four of us pretty much set up a barricade in the toddler area because so many big kids were pushing our tykes around. Not wanting to be "helicopter parents," what do you think is the proper amount of supervision in venues like this? Just curious.
Addison loves her "Ruf." This is a stuffed hot pink dog with turquoise ears that her teachers at school got her. The only other stuffed animal she's taken to is her Elbo (Elmo), but this dog takes the cake. She'll hug him and go, "Awwww. Ruf Ruf Ruf." She never lets him go. Seriously.

This pic was before her Sunday afternoon nap. She had a busy morning at church. She's decided she loves church. We pulled in this morning, and she started saying, "Yay!" and giggling. She made it through most of the service with the aide of goldfish, her quiet book, and her crayon pouch, and when it came time for class, she said, "Bible? Pat Bible?" Earlier in the week, she had gone to Patrick's bedside table, picked up P's Bible, brought it to me, and said, "BIBLE!" So we patted it, and we opened it, and pointed to the words, and said, "God loves Addison!" She repeated it and clapped while yelling, "YAY!" It melted my heart. Melted.

Love the new rain gear, too cute. And I agree, children need to be watched more. At places like this some parents think it is a free babysitter!
