Memorial Day Weekend Fun

What a fun weekend this has turned out to be! Lance was able to get off work early on Friday and we decided to kick off the holiday weekend by going downtown to an annual festival. Grace was so excited to go. Check out her sweet smile of anticipation! And although this is not a good quality picture, just for fun, check out this silly face! Grace kept checking out the slide, so finally we got some tickets so she could try it out! Oh, my - it's high up here! Yeaaay, let's do it again!! She was not happy when it was time to leave. Only a lemonade could pry her away! Soon the tears gave way since she realized we were in for some backyard fun. Grace loved being "dipped". Here we go!!! She wanted to go again and again and again!
It was SO hot on Sunday we decided to go for an ice cream treat. When we got there I realized that although Grace has had ice cream before, this was her first time in an ice cream parlor, so in true mama mode, I HAD to take some photos ;) Birthday cake ice cream - yum! Grace has been loving her mini sprinkler pool, so we decided to add a few others to our very own backyard water park! Here's Grace checking out the new arrangement. Where's the sprinkles, Mama? My fearless little pumpkin loved going head first! Yeaaay, this is the way to do it!! Lance probably hates this photo, but I love that he wasted no time getting in the kiddie pool to splash around with Grace! Can you see how happy she is?!?! And finally, drying off and holding on to her baby - my sweet girl, I love you! Hope everyone is having a fun Memorial Day Weekend!!

Love, Noonie
