Getting Ready for the 4th of July . . . at least Fashion Wise! ;)

Have I mentioned that I love love love Audrey's Daycare? They are just fantastic and I swear every single employee there knows her name (and not b/c she's the naughty one!!) and greets her every morning. So not only do they truly love my child, but they plan the most fun events for every holiday. On Friday they are having a 4th of July Parade. Each kid will ride in the parade, wear fun sparkly headbands, and these super cute t-shirts that the teachers made for each child. They used their fingerprints to make the American flag. It is too cute! In addition to the parade there will be face painting, games, and snacks. I don't know who's more excited, me or Auds!

Here is her cute t-shirt (front)

To add to our cute 4th of July outfits, Katie picked up this adorable dress for Auds at Old Navy after they were out of them at the one near me. Love it!

And when I saw this little onesie I just had to buy it for our newest baby on the Shire, Jackson. He will be just too cute in it! (ok, so I've overused the words "cute", "adorable", and "precious" in this post. Comments with synonyms to these words would be appreciated!)

Get ready for parade pics coming soon!!!! :)

And . . .already a mistake!

And I can't fix it!!! Not Best "Weekened" Ever. But "Best WEEKEND EVER"!!!

Why can't I edit my posts???? Help from fellow bloggers please!

Addition to Best Weekened Ever

So as you know, blogspot is NOT my favorite website. It takes me forever and day to post 2 pictures and a sentence in the correct order! ;) So yesterday's Best Weekend Ever double post made me so proud! I can do it! I can become a Mommy Blogger like and quit my job and make all of my money by just blogging! But alas, not so much. As I read through the post I noticed typos, too many spaces, and not any explanation on who that new guy was in the pictures! I tried for FOREVER to edit the post, and decided I better just log off before I through my shoe at the computer screen.

Soooo . . . . . sorry for the typos, spaces, and unexplained pictures. Let me fix that in a new post! (Because that's the only way I know how!) My Uncle Mike came to visit this weekend, which only added to the Best Weekend Ever! He's such fun guy and I always love seeing him. But he and his family live in Pennsylvania, so that doesn't happen very often. This was his first time meeting Audrey and they hit it off! It was great to see him. And he and my wonderful Aunt Pam gave Audrey a gift to go buy toys, clothes, or whatever she needed! So of course Mommy hit up Old Navy (Audrey does not need one single new toy in our little house!!). They were having an awesome sale, so not only did Audrey get some adorable clothes, so did Mommy, and our new little friend down the street who is 2 months old. (Who can pass up an adorable onesie?) Thanks Uncle Mike for coming to visit and thank you for the very generous gift!

Our loot! Whoop!

And just for fun, here's a cute art project Auds did at school a month ago. Love it! :)

Now I'm off to make dinner, so no time to spell check or check for errors. So if there are any, lo siento! ;) (That's for Bethie, Ster, and Kristen. What's up Senora Kirk!)

Best Weekend Ever, Part 1

This weekend was by far the most exciting one we've had in awhile. First and foremost Uncle Eric came to vist anf he brought his dog Laken! Now you all know I have never been a dog lover, but seeing Audrey interact with Laken (plus Laken is the best behaved dog ever) made me rethink on having a dog. Here's Audrey playing with Laken and her toys,
Mommy, I LOVE Laken, can we have a doggy pretty please??

I love my Uncle Eri

MOVIE TIME!! We took Auds to see her first movie, Cars 2.

Picking out candy . .

Ready for the show!

She loved it! Can't wait to take her to see more movies in the future. :)

Best Weekend Ever Part 2

Breakfast with Grammy, Uncle Eric and Mommy at our new favorite breakfast place, Crossroads Diner. It just opened up at Walnut Hill and Greenville and it was amazing.

Here are Grammy and Audrey coloring while waiting for out delicious food.

Still coloring . . . but it was worth the wait!

Audrey, happy and content after a wonderful breakfast with her favorite peeps.

Part 2 of Day 2 of the Best weekend ever. Splash Park with Audrey's BFF Sara! Here we are trying for a group shot, not really working because the girls were too excited to get going.

Fun in the water. It was so interesting to watch the girls play in the water. Sara was so adventourous, running from this place to that, while Auds kind of hung back and took awhile to join in.

Friends! :) I just love watching Sara and Audrey interact. More than one person has commented that Sara looks and acts like my best friend when I was younger, Kristen. I tend to agree. What an interesting observation!
And of course ice cream is the perfect end to a perfect weekend. :)

Best Weekend Ever!
