|Allan & our newest niece|
One of the best moments of the first weekend happened when we walked in the door to surprise everyone at Allan's mom's house. Ali saw Allan and took off running so he could scoop her up and hold her. That girl's entire face lights up when Allan plays with her and it melts my heart every time I see it.

This past weekend Adam, Jodi, and Ali stayed with us for a few days and we cooked, spent as much time outside as possible, took their new jogging stroller for a spin around the neighborhood, played mini golf, and traded off pushing Ali in her new swing at our house. The best moment of the entire weekend for me was when I was holding Ali and she petted Sasha and Lucky. Sasha loves small children and is great with them so petting her is no big deal. Lucky is fine with children as long as they don't scream. If they scream he barks and/or growls and gets scared. I kept telling Ali to be quiet when we would go see the dogs either in their room or outside and she did a great time looking and not making noise. When she petted Lucky and he wagged his tail I was overjoyed. I can't wait for the day she can run around in the backyard playing with them!
