We had a 2:00 "Tea" Time!

While everyone else in Iowa was watching the Iowa vs. Iowa State last weekend, the girls and I headed to the Tea Room in Perry. It was the perfect day for the drive there. Neither of the girls had been to the Tea Room before and were so excited to be able to go! When we walked in the first thing Julianna said was "Mommy, I didn't think it would be so beautiful!"

Both girls ordered the hot tea and we had a wonderful lunch and afternoon!

It was one of those great memory days!

Dear Grandma LiLi and Aunt La La mommy has been REALLY behind on blogging. I know that she has such great intentions of doing it, but life is really crazy for her right now. In case you didn't hear - school started last week and she is b.u.s.y. You should see her desk! It looks like a tornado hit it. I get to see her (and her desk) every day since daddy picks me up from school and then takes me to mommy's work for a little bit. I get to see all the kids everyday too and boy they sure do love mommy! But not as much as me of course! ;)

Anyway, here are some pictures from the past couple of weeks. I hope you like looking at them. I miss you both and CANNOT WAIT to see you at the wedding in.....6 WEEKS!!!!
I got my dress and sash last night and I can't wait to look just like you Aunt La La on your wedding day!

Mary and I BOTH had Meet the Teacher Night on the same night. Mary LOVES her new teachers and I LOVE my new teacher and classroom. We are both so blessed to be able to go to our new schools. WE LOVE IT!

My new cubby area!

Two weeks ago we spent the weekend in the woods housesitting for mommy's boss. When we got there she had left lots of presents for me on the counter. One of them was this really cool bug catching kit. Mommy and I spent some time outside collecting....worms! I love them and wanted to take them all home with me, but mommy said we had to leave them there. :( We had a great weekend relaxing and exploring!

Found one!

Found another!

That weekend we also took a drive to Jester Park. Did you know that they have Buffalo there?!!? Mommy and daddy woke me up from my nap just to show me. Aren't they SO cool!?!

Here I am on my first day of school. It was F.U.N. and I know that I am going to make some many new friends!

Soooo......everytime we go to the grocery store, I look to see if they have the kids cart and everytime some other kid is using it. Well we went to the store last week and mommy saw the cart across the store and RAN to get it for me! It was hilarious. The things she does for me. So here I am happy as happy can be with my cart. AND I just happen to have my baby with me. It was the most perfect shopping trip! :)

Aunt La La, don't you just love my outfit? I picked it out all by myself and wanted to take a picture just for you!

On Monday night Genevieve came over for a playdate and I got to help babysit baby Olivia. Isn't she precious. I am already in love....

....and guess who else is in love with her? She loved him right back too. She stopped being fussy only when my daddy would hold her. I think it's good practice for when I have my own baby sister...someday!

And finally...I got my school pictures taken on Wednesday. Mommy went ahead and snapped a few shots at home of me in my new outfit (that I picked out) since we all know what happened with my school pics last year. We still crack up everytime we see that picture. How could I have been so miserable!?!? Anyway, mommy shouldn't have worried. I did great this year. I got right up on the stool, crossed my legs and my arms and he got some great shots! Everyone said I looked adorable. What do you think?!?!

Hope you both have a great weekend! We are going out of town. I can't wait for a road trip with just Mommy and Daddy. I love you both!! See you soon!
