What an eventful week we've had! We barely managed to squeeze in your E studies with some books about elephants, a coloring page with eggs, playtime with alphabet magnets and some plastic Easter eggs with "E" written on them. Other than that we spent most of the week on the go!
Grandma and Papa Stan (and Tessa!) came back to spend the week with us. On Tuesday we went with Grandma to the library story hour and then out for a yummy lunch. On Wednesday we went to the park and then had ice cream even though it was only 10am! You had such a blast!
On Thursday you and mommy ran to the nursery for some flowers and pots to paint with footprint butterflies for Mother's Day. On Friday morning we went to visit your great-grandparents to wish them an early happy anniversary and Mother's Day. Later that day we went to visit Baby Grace again, and this time you were a bit more interested in her. You were even excited to hold her, and when she started to fuss a little you patted her belly and told her not to worry. It was so sweet!!!
We told your great-grandparents we were visiting Friday because we were busy on the weekend, but it was all a lie--for their big surprise anniversary party on Saturday night! There were about 60 friends and family members gathered at a restaurant and they were so shocked. You had a great time eating, playing with balloons and running around. The band seemed very grateful for your constant presence on the dance floor and how you kept trying to pull everyone up to dance with you. What a blast!
|The theme of the party was curlers and pianos. Your great-grandma always wears curlers |
and your great-grandpa has worked most of his life for a company that makes piano parts.
And, last but not least, yesterday was Mother's Day. You were pretty tired from the night before so we let you take a long nap before heading out to do anything. Then we celebrated with a hike in a local conservation area and mommy got out from behind the camera for a change! Thanks, daddy!
Well, mommy's got lots of photos of Baby Grace and the anniversary party to go through and edit, so I'm signing off now. Love you!
