A Beautiful Monday

Matt stayed home from work today. Since he worked all weekend, he has quite a few extra hours to take off when he wants. We decided to take advantage of the lovely weather and go for a picnic. The last time I took Eleanor to the park, I let her play in the grass. My mom saw those pictures and said, "That poor girl needs some toys so she doesn't have to play with just grass." (Just for the record, we have toys coming out the qua-zoo.)

Thanks to her Mimi, Eleanor has fun little cars intended for outside play (and chewing).

She played with them for a while, but then went back to playing with (and eating) the grass.

Then Eleanor's good friend Sophie came over to play. Sophie is a very patient beagle. Eleanor was eager to explore this strange new animal. Sophie felt the same towards Eleanor. I think they will get along well.

Lovely. It's been fairly nice here, sunny and in the 50's, but usually windy so we haven't spent much time lounging outside. And rain blows in mighty quick from the Sound.

Oops, I forgot to mention that when we have been outside Cedar likes to eat grass too.
