Memorial Day Weekend

We had such a nice weekend.
I love 3 day weekends.

Friday night, Landry wanted to call Uncle Bobby, so Dani let her Skype him.
She loves Skyping and thinks everytime we call someone, she should be able to see them!

Saturday, we went flower girl dress shopping again. 
This time we took Campbell with us.
Her and Landry got along great.
Landry watched everything she did and tried to mock her!
This time, we actually found the dress and ordered it for the both of them!
I wasn't able to get a picture of Landry in it though, because as soon as we were taking the first dress off to try the new one on, she was running around not watching where she was going and ran smack dab into the mirrored dressing room!  Poor thing got a bloody nose and a fat lip.  She was done trying on dresses after that!  Luckily Campbell was able to model it for us and we loved it!  They are going to look so precious at the wedding.
Campbell holds a special place in Dani's life.
She has been her nanny since she was born.

This girl also holds a special place in her life!
She is by no means modest!

Saturday afternoon, we went back to Campbell's house to swim.
Campbell has twin one year old sisters that Dani has now had the pleasure to nanny for, and they had a fun swim party that Landry got to go swim at.

Saturday night, after dinner we came back to my parents house and Landry was in the silliest mood.  That got Dani, mom and I in a silly mood and we turned on the 80's music and just started dancing.  We had so much fun!
Aunt Dani was teaching Landry how to do her forward rolls!

Sunday, all we did was lay out and swim.
It was so nice
Love these girls!
Happy Memorial Day!


The Windy City.
I had been to Chicago once in high school and didn't remember much about it.
This time I went for work.
I didn't get much time to explore, but I definately want to go back when I can stay for a longer duration.
I did however get to explore a little bit of the city.

Love, love, love the architecture

We went and visited the Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park

This is the view from the 96th floor bathroom, yep I said bathroom!

I of course couldn't leave without trying a slice of Chicago deep dish pizza!
It did not dissapoint.

First Dip and Flower Girl Dress Shopping

I remember being younger and wanting to get into my Grammy's pool so bad that Dani and I would just jump in for the first time and freeze.  We didn't want to have to get out so with quivering lips we would tell my mom that it felt good and we weren't cold! 
As we were outside Saturday, it was so nice out and humid that Landry decided she wanted to get into the pool.  We changed her into her new princess bathing suit and let her just play in my parents hot tub for a while.  She loved it, and thought it was her very own baby pool! 
Tim put his swimsuit on and jumped in to play with her.
She loved it for all of two minutes until daddy dunked her!
 We start swim lessons in two weeks!

Sunday, we went to look at flower girl dresses for Dani's wedding.
 We made the mistake of taking her right at naptime, so she did good for like the first two dresses and then about lost it.
 Dani then proceeded to give her a sucker and we were gone!
I think we will be taking her back next weekend way before naptime!

Lately, I feel as if our little family is going non-stop!
I love this time of year though and all that it brings.
Saturday, we went to Grapevine for Main St. Days and Landry went to her first petting zoo.
She wasn't as excited as I thought she would be and didn't want to go near the goats
She did however, want to ride the kids train they had
I thought the wagon was a great idea because it was open and she could get out as she pleased,
Wrong!  First she wanted to ride and all was well, but then when we let her out she didn't want to get back in and screamed and then wanted to help pull it.  
Needless to say, we will be sticking with the stroller for a while longer!
This girl takes after her momma!
She hasn't met a ride she didn't love!
Playing in the grass

Sunday morning as I was getting ready Tim gave Landry a bath and then brought her into our bathroom to blow-dry her hair. 
I had never seen him do this before and thought it was so cute.
He put a towel around her like she was at the beauty shop!
Sunday for lunch, the Boozer's came over and we lost Brady and Landry right after to the playroom.
Landry loves Brady Boozer and just follows him everywhere!
(Yes, she wears that bucket as a hat)

We are still loving gymnastics on Tuesday nights and this week, they got to play with bubbles after class
Last night, we had a shower for Amanda in our Sunday school class and I got to hold sweet Parker and feed him while she opened presents. 
Ugh, he is so cute!
I just love babies!
