Our trip to the duck pond

Yesterday we took advantage of the beautiful Spring- like weather. Aileah loved seeing the ducks and exploring grass1 sure love this little girl!

They were all paired off. Maybe they knew it was Valentine's Day :)

I love this pic! It totally captures her personality.

Just checking out the duck pond!

A gratuitous cute photo of our little doll!
