dance camp

Could dancing be Abby's new love? I hope so! Since we know that any kind of contact "sport" for little ones is not Abby's thing, I decided to enroll her in a dance class with some of her friends that live in our neighborhood. Today was just the first day, but she LOVED it. She was actually pretty good and listened very well to her teacher. I hope the rest of the week goes as well as today. If so, I want to enroll her in a class for the fall. The whole hour she kept looking at me saying, "I love this, Mom!" I think she is ready for tomorrow already.

My Gym party

Last week, we were in Houston for Cousin Camp! Bo's parents planned a fun week for the cousins! Abby was so tired every day, she took 3 hour naps. Who was this child?? Abby had a great time with her cousins every day. They really played well together. Besides the planned activities, the kids swam every day and also had some fun cousin olympic games.

The first day was a trip to Old Macdonald's Farm outside of Houston. It was a bit too hot for this momma, so I opted out of this event, but everyone had a great time feeding animals, riding horses and swimming!

The second day, a photographer came over and took pictures of the kids. We have seen a few samples and they turned out so great! That afternoon, we went to a pottery place and painted a few things and then headed to Chuck-E-Cheese.

The third day was Circus Day! Abby had a great time this year! It started out a bit loud, but she warmed up and watched the whole show. Her favorite part was the puppies that came out in dresses and jumped around the stage. She laughed so hard! I loved it.

The fourth day, the kids went to a swimming place called Noah's Ark and then to Chick Fil A for lunch. Bo went with Abby to this event as well. It was a great way to cool off from the heat!

The last day, Mimi rented My Gym for the kids to have their own party. Abby was a bit worn out at this point (as you can imagine) and watched the others a bit, but enjoyed parts of it as well.

What a fun week at Mimi and Papa's house! Thank you both so much! We had a great time and after we catch up on some sleep...we will be ready for next year! : )

4th of July

Abby and Reid

We had a big 4th of July!

After nap time, we headed over to the Browns for bbq. We had a ball, as always, with precious friends. On our way home, we decided to stop by the neighborhood party at the lake. They had a d.j. and Abby thought that was the best thing ever. She danced and danced. My friends who know Abby well were in shock watching her dance around screaming and laughing. It was a riot. We ended up staying to watch the fireworks which we had not really planned on. We didn't think there was any way Abs would stay up that late! Abby loved them at first and then decided they were too loud for her. However, she enjoyed watching them with her ears covered. What a great holiday! Hope you all had a great 4th of July too.
