Disneyworld!

We just got back from our family vacation to Disneyworld, and we had an AMAZING time! We saw Mickey & Minnie, Cinderella’s castle, TONS of princesses, and went on tons of awesome rides… and that was only at the Magic Kingdom! We also spent two days exploring Sea World, where we saws lots of animal shows, and even got to feed the dolphins! Since mommy took over 800 pictures, we had to make a slideshow to put up on the blog, or we would run out of space (don’t worry… not all 800 are in the slideshow either)! Enjoy the pictures, and we’ll try to post a movie and some more pictures later!

My first ballet class

I went to my very first ballet class today, and my friends Abby K & Julie were there too! Allison will even be there next week with us! I am SO excited to learn to dance, and I LOVE my leotard and ballet slippers! Mommy was a “little” disappointed because she wasn’t allowed to come in to see my lesson and take pictures, but when we’re done with our classes, we’re going to put on a little recital  for the mommies, so stay tuned for pictures then!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone! We went to our annual family party this year for some swimming on the beach and a beautiful fireworks show! We got to see Nannie & Grandpa, Bridget & Kevin, and even Dancey-Dancey & Pop-Pop! The ocean was great, and we LOVED swimming… especially since it was 95 degrees outside! Daddy even found a kayak to hang out on for a while! We also got to stay up really late for the fireworks show… even Emily loved it this year! We hope you all had a great weekend!
