Family Weekend

Daddy had to work all day on Saturday, but when he got home, Mommy packed a picnic dinner and we went to Shelby Farms.  We had cheese and crackers (my favorite) and chicken salad.  I love spending time with Dada!
I didn't really eat much because there were way too many distractions ;)
After dinner, Dada let me play with my new "bubble wand." It is really cool and blows lots of really big bubbles.  I can now say 'bubbles' too so I kept asking Dada for more 'bubbles.'
After the bubbles we went to see the horses.  They all really liked me, but Mommy was scared they would eat my foot, so I couldn't get too close.  I call horses and all other animals with 4 legs GAWGS (i.e. dogs), so I kept yelling 'GAWG' at the horse.  We both thought it was funny.
On Sunday after church and my nap (which by the way, most of the time these days I only take 1 nap - I am getting to be such a big girl!) we went to the zoo!  This was my 1st time being at the zoo when I knew how to walk.  I did NOT want to be in my stroller, but exploring all these interesting animals (GAWGS!).  I spent most of the time on Dada's shoulders when Mommy and Daddy got tired of waiting on me.  I can't help it I have short legs!
We had a lot of fun!  I enjoy the zoo more and more each time I go.  I am really interested in all the animals, but always prefer the petting zoo.  Here is me outside the birds and the bees exhibit.
And here is me outside the polar bear exhibit (of course I won't sit still long enough for a picture)
We had so much fun together this weekend.  I love pretty weather and spending time with Mama and Dada!

Gracen-Filled Weekend + BIG NEWS + Runny nose

Sorry, to all my frequent readers, but our internet has been out for 10 days, so I haven't been able to do any blogging.  But, don't you guys worry, we still had a fun past few weeks with lots of pictures.  Mommy and I continue to have a blast on her days off from work.  Here is my first attempt at picture taking.  I have a feeling photography is going to be one of the many things I excel at ;) (This is my thumb if you guys can't figure that out)
Last weekend was a 'Gracen-filled' weekend.  We have SO much fun together.  We love to boss each other around and Gracen can even say "LAYLA."  I am working on saying Gracen, but haven't quite done it yet.  Instead I just get REALLY excited when I see her.  On Friday, we started off our weekend by Mommy and Aunt Stefanie taking us to the sprinkler park.  We both LOVED it.  First we played on the big kids playground.  Does everyone like my aqua socks?  They came in very handy at the playground and sprinkler park
Gracen liked my aqua socks too, check out what's in her hand ;)
Here is Gracen standing on some other kids towel ;)
But, Gracen holding my shoe hostage didn't stop me!
Then Friday night, Mommy and Daddy invited Uncle Jared, Aunt Stefanie and Gracen over for burgers, so we could play longer.  Aren't we getting to be big girls?!?  
Then Saturday night we went over to Uncle Jared & Aunt Stefanie's apartment, so we got to play together AGAIN, then Sunday we all went out to lunch after church then swimming.  I love spending time with Gracen - we are best buds.  

On Wednesday, Mommy and & I ate dinner at Gangi & Pop Pop's along with Uncle Jared, Aunt Stef and Gracen and they had big news for us!  I'm going to have ANOTHER cousin!!!  Hurray!!!! Gracen and I are going to have so much fun with the newest addition, though we are going to have to be patient for him/her to be able to play with us.  Until then, we still have each other!

Finally, I have had a runny nose lately.  On Friday, I was eating my Cheerios when Mommy noticed that one had gotten stuck under my nose.  Hehehe
Then Friday night, we were having family time and I sneezed and oops, I need to learn to blow my nose ;)
Alright, gotta go take a nap.  Daddy had to work all day, but we are going to the park for a picnic tonight, so I need my rest.

More pics from being sprayed

I uploaded my video the other day but forgot to post these pictures.  Oops, silly me!  I thought they were too funny to keep to myself, so here they are.  



Next time I think I'm going to get Dada to set up the sprinkler!!!

Birmingham + Dada Sprayed me with the Hose!!!!!

So, this past weekend Mommy & Daddy wanted to get away from Memphis, so we decided to go see Uncle Andrew & Aunt Kelly in Birmingham b/c I had so much fun last time!  We got there really late on Friday night, so since I don't like to sleep in the car, I slept until 9:30 on Saturday morning.  Aunt Kelly was super glad about that!  On Saturday, we went to the Farmer's Market, and shopping and then they took me to a super cool park where I made some new friends.  I was a bully at the park, but had a blast getting dirty!  Then I went and took a nap and when I woke up, Aunt Kelly and Uncle Andrew let Mommy & Daddy go to dinner and a movie without me.  I had a blast with them!  I spent most of the evening chasing Binky (the MEOW, i.e. cat) around the house.  Binky kept hissing at me, so I hissed back, hahaha, everyone thought it was funny ;).  I had so much fun and can't wait to go back to B'ham.  Somehow we made it through the entire weekend without a single picture!

Then tonight, Dada took me outside so he could water the plants and look what happened....

He sprayed me too!!  It was so much fun.

Rough Week

My Great Aunt Watts (I like to just call her Aunt Watts - I think it makes her feel younger :) bought me some Minnie Mouse ears when she went to visit Mickey a few weeks ago.  I don't really understand why I was not invited on the trip.  I mean, they were all over the age of 21, I am the one that is SUPPOSED to go visit Mickey, but they brought me ears home, so I guess it is ok.  
I don't really like wearing them yet, if you can tell ;)
This week was a rough one for Mommy and me.  Mommy got really sick last Friday and was miserable all day Friday and Saturday, so Daddy took me to the lake.  Then I came home on Sunday with a HIGH fever.  I felt really crummy.  So, Mommy got to stay home with me while I recovered on Monday and Tuesday.  It was hard on Mommy to feel so bad and then get behind at work, but don't you guys worry, My Mommy is TOUGH!!!  Here is me soon after I had 104 fever.  I may look ok, but I was SICK!!
And here is me showing off all my 12 teeth.  Not sure if I have posted a picture of all my teeth yet :)
On Tuesday I was feeling MUCH better and so was Mommy.  I have a new trick where I like to carry around the dish rag while I'm walking around the house.  Obviously, my favorite is to put the dish rag over my head ;)
I did it again, 
And even covered my head in Rylie's kennel
Alright, enough blogging for tonight - it is bed time!  Soon I will blog about my awesome trip to B'ham this past weekend to see Uncle Andrew & Aunt Kelly.  We had a blast, but I need to hit the way.  Niiiiiiiiiiiigh Niiiiiiiiiiiight.
