Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

So this afternoon Peggy came over and we went on an adventure for the afternoon.  We went SHOPPING, well not shopping shopping, but more like window shopping.  We went to Governor's Sqaure Mall and we had a blast.  We walked around for awhile.  The we took a snack break at Starbuck's with milk and cake pops.


We then walked around some more.  We went in and out of a few stores, but the Coach store really grabbed your attention and that of the sales guy.

All that shopping made us all very hungry.  We had Mexican for dinner and it was super yummy,and we topped the night off with some ice cream from our favorite ice cream shoppe, Lofty Pursuits.  It was such a fun afternoon.

First Day of K3A

Today was your first day of K3A.  Your teachers for this year are Ms.Nariza (Reza) and Ms. Chrystal.  You were so excited to go to the big girl class.  You ladies walked right into school, went right to your class and said "bye bye mommy, have a great day."  It was such a great feeling leaving with you so happy.  Here are some pictures from our mini back to school photo shoot.

A Bowling Party

Mommy's work had their summer bowling party and we thought we would use this opportunity to take you ladies bowling for the first time.  To say that I was a bit apprehensive would have been an understatement.  To begin with the party started at your bed time, there were going to be tons of people there and well, it was bowling.

When we first arrived you ladies were completely mesmerized by everything, the lights... the sounds..the bowling balls.  


We were the first ones there, so we went and claimed our lane at the very end.  Then we began the search for the perfect ball.  People started to arrive and Peggy got this great picture of the bowling family.


Next we went to get our bowling shoes and they had some that were small enough for you ladies.  Well they were a little big for Em, but they did the job.

So now it was time to bowl.  You ladies loved it.  It was so much fun to experience this with you ladies for the first time.

A Visit with Nana and Papa

So Nana and Papa decided to come for a visit to watch your last gymnastics class for the summer.  You were so excited to see them pick you up from school.  We went to class and it was the best class ever.  You went on the big floor and got to jump into the pit.  You had a bounce house in your class.  

After class we went to dinner and daddy met us.  Dinner was yummy, but lately we can't have dinner in Market Street and not got to Lofty Pursuits for ice cream.  Lily, you had your usual blue sprinkles.

On Friday, Nana need to go to the mall for something so we made an adventure out of it.  While mommy and nana were getting ready, we had papa do your hair.



good job papa


He did a really good job.  Nana was so excited to see your overalls.  She had those made for you when you were about 6 months old.  She thought you would have to be in kindergarten before you could wear them.

We hung around the mall for a bit and then had lunch.  After lunch we went to Toys R Us!  Papa was crazy, according to emma while we were there.  He wanted to buy a remote control dinosaur for the house.  That idea was vetoed!

After you ladies went to bed on Friday night I talked to Papa about helping to build something with the really large boxes that we had been given that were sitting in the garage.  I could not have imagined what he would create.

So on Saturday he started to work on it.  We took a break and went swimming and then he went back to work.  While you ladies were napping nana and mommy went shopping to buy some stuff for the house and for ourselves :-)

When we got home we saw this.....






We were all shocked.  Papa was busy while we were out.  Nana thought that you ladies needed these really cool remote control cars so we played with this for a while.



After you ladies went to bed, mommy helped papa with the decorating of your house.  We moved it from the back porch into the other living room and man...it is REALLY big.




Nana and papa let mommy and daddy sleep in on Sunday.  Papa told me that when you ladies woke up you ran to the back porch to see the house.  When you didn't see it, Emma you told papa that someone took your house.  He told you ladies to look around and you might be able to find it.  He said that your look was priceless when you saw it in the room.

Now a visit with nana and papa wouldn't be complete if we didn't have breakfast at The Egg.  Nana loves The Egg.






Breakfast was great as usual.  Afterwards we went to look at the pond and you ladies went on a walk with nana and daddy around the pond.















When we got back home we needed to get some pictures with you ladies and the master builder.
