Retreat - Day 2 - Buddies!

On the retreat Aashini got to hang out with her good buddies Gracey, Joy & Faith a lot. She loves hanging out with them and playing with them. They're really sweet girls :)

They had a lot of fun feeding the horses together :)
There were hammocks all over the grounds and they hung out a lot together on them :) They did a lot of swinging :)
I like this picture :)
Here's Aashini working on her diya :) She picked green (that's my girl!!) and had a lot of fun painting and decorating it :)
This is the almost finished product - she added a lot more after I took this picture :) She's a cutie :)

Retreat! - Day 1 - Kiddos :)

We just got back from a week in the foothills of the Himalayas. It was beautiful and the weather rocked!
We had to bundle the kids all up :) It was chilly in the mornings and evenings :)
I love Diya's face in this picture :) hehe :)
There were a lot of sand and rocks all over the park and Aashini LOVED it! She played in the dirt and with the rocks the whole time we were there - she was so happy!!!
There were horses at the resort and Aashini had fun feed them :)
There were elephants at the resort some of the days too. Aashini loved it!!!!
Aashini got to see some of her buddies she doesn't get to see very often. :)
There were hammocks all over the resort grounds. The kids had a blast with them! Here's Diya in one - she LOVED it!
The first night they had some stuff for us adults and the kiddos got to go to their class for VBS. At the end Aashini was coloring this paper and decided she wanted to color the whole thing red... and she did ;) haha!
More to come!

Random Pictures :)

These are some older pictures that I've been meaning to post. My neighbor Gigi and her friend from America were on a trip to our country recently and we got to see them one of the days they were here. Gigi got Aashini this cute dress :) Aashini loved it and danced around in it :)
Diya is a funny sleeper and really wants a stuffed animal to sleep :)
Diya crawls using the side of her big toes. The side of her big toes are always dirty and she has little calluses on them :) Too cute :)
Diya loves to crawl in and on things - she's funny :)
We had the box a few weeks ago and Aashini had so much fun with it :)
Diya still has blue eyes - I think they're going to stick :)
Aashini LOVES to color :) I love that she sticks her tongue out when she's concentrating :)
Making a pita pizza the other day :)
The girls were playing together at a play place :) It was cute :)
I love Diya's spikey hair :)
The other night the girls were playing together on the tricycle :) I thought it was cute :)
I love the face Diya is making here :)
I think I'm all caught up now :)

Girls in Green :)

I found these older pictures that I forgot to post. These are from about 3 weeks ago (I think).... pre-haircut :) and before Diwali I think... But I still wanted to post them :)
This picture is funny :)
I love the look on Diya's face :)
Remember the mirror at the mall? When we first put Aashini on it she was terrified!! Even this past August she was still terrified of it (you can see pictures here)! Well, a couple of weeks ago she decided to get brave and try it. I think she was still a little scared, but she kept saying: "look! I'm not scared!"
Diya loved it again :)
haha! This cracks me up :)
This one too! :)

Sisters :)

The other day the girls were all matchy, so I took their pictures together :) This picture below cracks me up :)
They really have a lot of fun with each other. Diya LOVES to laugh and Aashini LOVES to make people laugh - it's a good combo :) haha! They're quite funny together!
I love this one :)
Aashini picked this pose out by herself - it's very old-school over-posed - haha!
At one point Aashini started laughing and couldn't stop - I thought this was funny :)
... and I liked this one too :) haha! :)

A couple of days ago we took the girls to see the goats. It's for a holiday that took place yesterday (for more on that you can read my other blog - click here). Aashini was terrified at first but then decided to pet the goats :) Adam wanted to let Diya ride the goats. She was a little scared at first (see her death-grip on Adam's shirt?).
The goat's owner said that Diya should ride on the goat backwards - haha! OK :) She was a little concerned about being on the goat, but she seemed to have fun :)
Aashini had fun at the end :) She thought the goats were cool!
I like this picture because she kinda looks like "Little Miss Giggles" on her shirt :)
The girls had fun :) How many HUGE Mega-Cities in the world can also give you the country-farm experience? haha!
You can see me with my HUGE belly with the goats last year here if you want :) haha!
