jumping for joy!

You know it's Friday around our house when my daughter is doing this...

Friday, my friends, is wash day! And whether they need it or not, the sheets all come off the beds! As soon as Lilah sees those sheets disappearing into the washing machine, she knows she has a good two hours of jumping on the bed! You know, it's also a good way to tire your daughter out for a nice quiet put-her-to-bed-early Friday evening!!

I caught these pictures of my girl, doing what she does best. I love to see the pure joy on her face when she's bouncing, it's beautiful and innocent. And seeing that, makes me just as happy as she is!

jumping on the bed
jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed! jumping on the bed!
