She had gotten her flag shirt I made her dirt, so she wore a red hair pretty, white tank, and blue skirt....very festive! hehe. I discovered a new favorite summer hairstyle too...a little side pony/bun with a BIG clippie...she looks like a little salsa dancer or something hehe. Too cute!
|She was so excited to go see the fireworks she wouldn't sit still and pose for a picture!|
We also had to stop at the gas station on our way there so that Raya could pee :-P ....so we let her pick out a treat for while we watched. She picked out a swirly lollipop and told me it would "match" the fireworks...smart girl!
So we had a wonderful night watching fireworks and eating candy with our "big girl"! Hopefully next year Brielle will be at a better age to go along too :-)
Now today Raya was spoiled again, because Mama bought her a stinkin' huge village of Littlest Pet shop stuff! lol. The facebook group I was selling some baby gear through had someone selling all her daughter's littlest pet shop toys....and it looked like fun that Raya and Brielle could play together. OMG, you should see all we got! haha...like 6+ houses/play structures, probably 100 different animals, 2 gallon ziplocks full of accessories, etc. etc....crazy! My mom has it at her house today letting all 4 kids play while she has them....then tonight I need to figure out where it's going in *our* house! Better sell off some more baby toys to make room :-P
Here's a picture from craigslist of the stuff....it looks like about 5 times as much all spread out in the living room LOL. Lee is going to kill me! hehe. Love spoiling my girlies though :-)
Lastly, here is a little photoshoot Raya did for me this morning, just because she looked so dang cute in her dress!
I'm almost caught up on my Etsy orders, and then the remainder of my Etsy shop vacation I plan to teach myself to shoot in manual mode on my camera--hopefully I can figure it out! I know that's the best way for me to get more consistent with my camera. I found a little photographer group online that I started reading too....it's supposed to be for amateurs *and* pros, but so far the pros seem a little catty towards wannabes like me haha. Oh well...I'm happy with these!
|Telling Brielle to stay away from "her" photoshoot :-P|
