Family Park Day...

It was finally warm enough to enjoy the park as a family... and as an added treat we brought along Maggie!


I was very excited to show her how I slide...


and to watch her discover my favorite park...


I showed her how to swing...


"Let's go for a walk" said Maggie...


More like a run!

I wanted to show her "over the mountain" (the bridge)...


We stopped for some family pictures (man I look pale next to mom's spray tan... time to play outside)...


Maggie wanted to take a picture too!


Parent switch out...


They even have a doggie water fountain!


One big girl swing picture...


and then I found Kaia, Zuzi & Sydney (it might as well been a Mom's League playdate at the park!)...


Toddler soccer is not a good idea... I immediately was screaming "my ball" while screaming... last spring mom kept a ball in the car for me... it's time to do that again!


When we got home I wanted to show off my new dancing skills. Mom has no idea where I learned this (except maybe it was from watching a little boy hula hoop at the park)...

First I started with shaking my tail...

Resulting in giggles...

and some fun dancing...

and eventually some "skipping"...

Catching Up... The Weekend Edition

So mom and dad had a special date night last night and mom told me we would have to wait to blog today...

Get ready for LOTS of reading!

On Friday morning we got dressed up...


Took some pictures...


and headed to Jacob's house for playgroup... (by the way I NEED this house)


Talking on the phone...


I love baby Madeline... she's so sweet!


Playing GeoTrax with the boys...


and trains with Carter...


Brooklyn always flashes mommy big smiles...


This is Jacob's room... if you look in his fort you'll see me!


Miss Katie asked mom to take a picture of her sweet kiddos...


and Jacob wanted the same picture...


Brooklyn and I did some dancing to The Wiggles...


More Geotrax! These things are SUPER cool!


Miss Cyndi read Keira and I a book...


While mommy took pictures of Keira's little brother...


and then I showed him some toys...


Friday night was the Mom's League Gala.


Here are some of our playgroup mommies... Angela, Samah, Kelly, Christen, Cyndi, Katie & my mommy... I think they clean up pretty good!


Mommy says it was at a beautiful location and they had a wonderful dinner and came home with some fun silent auction items...


The Mom's League also raised over $20,000 for the Community Hospice of Texas Pediatric Division...


Thank you Ms. Paula for being my secret babysitter once again! The only problem with me going to bed before mom and dad leave on date night... is that they have to get up with me in the morning... (Yes I put the tiara on myself)...


Since we were up we headed out to see the house... doesn't the backsplash look beautiful? All the granite is in as well as all of the sinks...


I love our window seat!


Fast forward through naptime and it was time for a special treat! Addison T.'s birthday party! A Yo Gabba Gabba themed birthday party!


I was SO excited when mommy showed me my Muno shirt she made for me (my bows had Muno on them too but she forgot to take a picture)...


It was so warm out I didn't need leggings or long sleeves... mom was shocked to see how long my legs have gotten!


Don't I look happy to be in a skirt?


These parties always make mom go look at the same party last year... What a change!


A Muno Princess...


"Let's go!"


"Please!!"


It was a perfect day to have an at home birthday party... Addi even has a rollercoaster!


and a house (again I NEED this)...


and she has PONIES next door!




My turn!


Bubba's turn...


Her mommy outdid herself with the Yo Gabba Gabba theme... look at the DJ Lance Rock cake!


and our party favors!


I was just as happy playing with a blown up balloon (mom needs to buy some for the house)...


Cake time!


Captivated by Addi's candles...


Her sweet reaction when her mommy told her to "close her eyes and make a wish"...


Bubba dug right in!


I was a little more proper, but I made a big mess!


Our attempt at a picture of the two of us...


Wow we've grown up since last year...

I snuck up to Addi's playroom and enjoyed some of her toys...


Then I took one of her baby dolls to go slide...


Our friends the O'Hair's were out at our neighborhood this afternoon and let mommy know that they were pouring our driveway, so after the party we met daddy out there to take a look...


and to do a little grafiti...




We marked the driveway & the slab close to where the airconditioner will be...


I was so happy to see daddy!


Another missing video... this one is from Thursday. If you listen closely you'll hear me singing the words to Barney's "Clip Clop Riding on a Pony"...
