And so with that I bid you all farewell, because tomorrow we are off to St. Louis! Of course hitting up a Cardinals baseball game, and also taking the girls to Grant's Farm for the first time. Also plan to play and splash in City Park. All kinds of fun stuff. We try to go to St. Louis at least once a year so glad we are making it there this week! I will be back next week with pictures to share!
Before I go, here are a bunch of random photos I haven't gotten around to sharing in the last few days---enjoy :-)
Last week Raya had swimming lessons. (I actually forgot to take her on Friday b/c we were shopping lol...so she had 4 days of lessons. But honestly, all they do is splash around at this level...it's at the public pool so we aren't talking hardcore lessons ;-) Anyways, she did fine, except that it was COLD last week, and rainy, and pretty miserable to be swimming. But she did it. On to level 3 next year! haha
Here was Brielle the other day, having her first ever taste of Kool-Aid....
Here were the girls enjoying pudding cups and their first corn-on-the-cob of this season...yum!
The girls LOVE to cut things with scissors...all the time.....
When my mom took Brielle shopping last Friday she bought her Dora pjs (and Dora underwear and Dora socks....and a barking dog in a purse...can you say SPOILED? lol) ....but anyways, here was Brielle that night, happily wearing the beloved pjs haha
Here is my facebook post from today, that I don't want to forget:
(upon seeing that Brielle has peed on the bathroom floor this morning...)
Me: Brielle?!?! What are you doing?!
Raya: Well mama, Brielle said she had to go potty but I told her that Baby Boo was going potty, and she had to wait. Baby Boo had to go really bad.
I cannot believe I cleaned pee off the floor because Raya's *DOLL* was on the potty taking too long. Poor Brielle...
....in other news, I got each girl signed up for her extracurricular for this year! Raya will be doing ballet again on Fridays (based on age she will be repeating the same class from last year, but they said if they think she should move up to the next level (which performs in the recital) then they will let me know within the first few weeks. I don't really care either way, although the class now is cheaper monthly tuition, doesn't perform in the recital so no costume or recital fees, and is the same one Brielle will join in January when she is 3, so I'm thinking staying put sounds awfully good haha.
...and I got Brielle signed up for Friday morning gymnastics! She will go while Raya is in preschool. When I told her about it she said "yay, 'nastics! Are other people there? I don't like people. Mama come?" ....I told her yes, I would come (I have to accompany her through the class since she's under 3) ....and she said "Ok, I love 'nastics! Mama comes!" hahaha. Now I need to find a teeny tiny gymnastics leotard ;-)
Lastly, here are some outfit of the day pictures I haven't shared yet!
|She was being too crazy for a good photo lol.....Children's Place|
See you all next week!! :-)
