Future career?

While shopping at Old Navy, Molly may have found her future career!

She jumped right in with the "family and friends" at front entrance!
The manager saw her and came over to chat with us! She told us this guy was Robbie! ***OOPS~ that's not Robbie~ it's a girl and my friend Becky has a smart fashion sense!!****

Barker, the dog who doesn't bark!
Molly really liked him alot!

This is Molly's new friend, Rita!
The manager told her she would be a great model and to come back and practice any time she wanted to!

Molly, you can be what ever you want to be! You are awesome!

Linking my world to Communal Global!

Let's talk about it!

Back in Florida,
this little someone had lots to say~

She hollered for all of us to listen! "Hey you guys"...

She shared with us how much she loved spending time with all her Ohio cousins!

She said she loved being with her Aunt Doodie, Aunt BB, Meme and Papa too!

She told us it was the best vacation she ever had!

Who knew she had so much to say!

Little Miss Laylabug... We had the best vacation with you too! We love you up to God!

Mother's Day...

I will start this post by saying our sweet Laylabug is 7 months old!
She continues to delight all who know and love her!!

On Sunday, Mother's Day, Sarah and I went to the theater to see...

We dressed in our Sunday best...
And Sarah even put a little lipstick on too!
She looked super cute! The play was good but we felt bad for the man who played Tony because he could not keep up with the girl who played Maria. Her voice was so wonderful and he had a hard time blending in... it was disappointing. Sarah loved the dresses and the fun dancing!

After the play we met Dave, Danny, Donny, Beckie and Molly at Olive Garden for dinner! Uncle Danny gave Sarah a spin... I am sure she thought she was Maria and Dan, her Tony! She kept singing~"I fell pretty, oh so pretty"!

Two silly girls and their Meme at dinner!

On Friday the 13th, Beckie took me, Sarah and Molly to Blossom Music Center to see Sugarland! It was my Mother's Day gift! We had lawn seats and luckily the rain held off! Here's Molly, excited to use her binoculars when the show starts!

The girls loved laying on the blanket before the show but once the music started they were up dancing the night away!
My sweethearts...
To all my children... Thanks for a great Mother's Day! You all make me so proud to be your Mom!

SeaWorld, Kristin and her Whales!!

After we left Bonita Springs, we traveled to Orlando! We went to see Kristin and her Whales at SeaWorld! My friend Julie, Kristen's mom, was there too! Julie loved meeting Bridget's babies! Mya loved Julie too!
Cayden had seen videos of Kristin in her show at SeaWorld and watched and hollered to EVERY trainer... "KRISTIN~ KRISTIN!"
"Hi Kristin" Never mind there were killer whales swimming in the pool~ Cayden only cared about Kristin!
He was so happy to be there!
The show was fabulous! It is called ONE WORLD.

We had great seats! Julie knows the ins and the outs and showed us where the best view would be!

We haven't seen Kristin since high school graduation so it was so very nice to reconnect! Bridget and Kristin...
I still see the photo of them in kindergarten standing together in front of Julie's house!

Love this picture!

Kristin opened the gate and waved us in... what a thrill for Cayden and all of us!!

She called the "babies" over to say hi to Cayden!

She signaled for him to SMILE at Cayden!

She signaled for him to stick his tongue out!!

She showed Cayden how she signals and whistles "good job" to her whales!

Kristin signaled: WAVE to Cayden!

She did have treats ready for a job well done!
Kristin is very dedicated to her job at SeaWorld~ I am so very proud of her!

Cayden only had eyes for Kristin.... his new hero!

There... Meme got the shot!

Cayden whistles the signal "good job"!
Look at those cheecks!!

Thanks to our friend Kristin! We had a fun day at SeaWorld, your show and at lunch with you!
We can't wait to come back next year! Beckie and her girls want to come visit too!!

Julie, we will let you know dates so we can meet up again!!

Lucky Cayden!
