Hi everyone, it's Katie. Tess, Hailey and Ella are my cousins, and Tess said she didn't think anybody would mind if I did a post for today. For those of you who don't know me, I love to take pictures and to travel. Unfortunately, my travel opportunities are a bit limited. Someday, I'd love to tour the world. For now, I have to settle for whatever I can get. I was so excited when Mama came into the room with her three daughters and told them they could pick one of us to go play outside. I hoped they would pick me...and they did!!
After Mama got me changed into some outside clothes, we all headed out to the front yard to play. Dorcas was there with her Girl, and Liesel and her Girl came, too. Jane had a cold, so her Girl took a little Baby Belle doll out instead.
We had so much fun together! Dorcas is a great tree climber, and she showed me all the best places to climb.
I loved being outside. I took a minute to do nothing more than lay in the grass and soak up the sun.
Dorcas wanted to play tag or hide and seek. We decided on hide and seek. Boy, it took me a while to find her!
Mama had to work on dinner, and it was getting pretty hot, so we all decided to go inside after that. I hope I get to go outside and play again soon. Someday, I hope to convince Mama to let me do some traveling of my own. I want to explore so much more than the front yard. The more I see of the world, the more I wish I could travel to exciting places and meet new people. Oh, well. For now, I'll think back on our fun day in the front yard and my time with Dorcas and Leisel. :)
