Mom and Dad and I had a fourth of July picnic with my friend Maddie and her parents last week. We just walked over to Minnehaha Falls Park and had a great time.
We posed for photos.
We practice our dance moves.
We “took a nap.”
And then I cuddled with Daddy.
My friend B just turned three and this past weekend Mom and Grandma came with me to her party. Her grandparents live on a cool lake so we were able to go out on their pontoon!
We ate cupcakes!
We hit a pinata…
(and gathered lots of candy).
And then I sang as loud as I could for the whole drive home.
Thanks J & B for a great day!
Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa Nibs brought me to the beach. Have I ever told you I like to swim? Here are a few shots of me doing what I do best:
jumping into the hotel pool
posing with my new goggles
walking with Dad at Three Mary Cays
and my own personal pool at the Villa.
Mommy’s friends Jill and Lisa got me this great scarf. Last year they got me this great hat. I love them both. And when I mean both, I mean the scarf and the hat and the Jill and the Lisa.
So, I learned to skate. And on Sunday we went skating with nearly the WHOLE family! Plus my friend W. Here we are together, feeling our “two minutes of shame.”
Then Allison and I skated around for a while. She’s a really good skater, even with figure skates. So much fun!
My sweet Bogey turned 10 this weekend. We threw him a surprise party!
I helped him open his presents.
I put the candles on his cake.
I helped blow them out.
And I helped eat the cake.
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Nibs for helping me throw such a great party!
Wow – what a busy weekend I had. I proved it was probably too busy by completely melting down Sunday night. But it was worth it.
Saturday morning I went to a birthday party for a classmate, and my entire class was there! We played games, ate cake and popped balloons with our bottoms! In the photo above I’m getting wrapped up like a Mummy!
Then we went up north to Grandma and Grandpa Nibs house. I helped Grandpa feed the birds …
and Sunday morning we rode a train to see the fall colors.
When we got home, Mom brought me to see the latest Ice Age movie at the neighborhood theater.
Then we went to the playground and played “Ice Age.” I was Ellie, Mom was Manny and the world was falling apart. We had a blast. Now I’m off to bed… I’m really tired.
I made it make to the fair again this year!
(i can jump really high!)

(cotton candy is MORE important than smiling)
(my favorite ride: the boats, with a random new friend)
It’s my fourth year attending, and my third year going down the Giant Slide. Mom didn’t bring her fancy camera, so these shots are from her phone and her little digital camera.
And here are photos from years past. Guess I’ve grown a bit!
Today was my first full day in Preschool “B”. And I had a blast. A lot of my friends moved up with me, but I have new teachers: Eli and Wendy. And in two short years? I’ll be starting kindergarten…
I don’t get to see my cousin Kellen very often, maybe twice a year if I’m lucky. But about three minutes after we got into his car at the airport he had me laughing. And I didn’t stop for four days.
