Somehow this uploaded super blurry....not sure why....but anyway - here is Miss Emily on a carousel at Peter Piper Pizza! Monique, our babysitter, and the kids went there today for lunch. On the carousel with her are Luis, Monique's 2-year-old son, and Madison, Monique's 2 year old niece.
Steve's brother Stan and his family are in town this weekend - everyone was here yesterday for Merichelle and Bryan's wedding which was a success (and from what I've seen of the raw footage on Steve's computer, just beautiful too!!) Anyway, today we went over to Steve's parents house to spend some time with our wonderful family! Emily had a great time with everyone.
Granmom and Emily playing with wooden blocks:
Uncle Stan joined in:
This doesn't quite show the tender moment Uncle Stan and Emily shared. They were so sweet!!
Of course, Emily could not get enough of Granmom's beautiful back yard:
With aunt Rebecca:
And just being silly - under the table:
Climbing stairs...we don't have any at our house, so this fascinated Emily to no end.
Ummm....cheesecake and strawberries!! Too bad she couldn't have either....all in due time though.
We had a wonderful time!! Mom, thank you for the wonderful lunch and all the fun!!
We were so happy the sun finally came out and it felt like we were living in Texas again, that we made a spur of the moment decision to go to the Arboretum and spend our late morning/early afternoon in there. Steve, Emily, and I all had a great time.
Looking at the fish in the pond:
They had this tepee and you could go inside:
And this wagon was so cute:
As always, lots of pretty flowers:
This is the entrance to the Texas pioneer exhibit:
View of the lake:
And more flowers:
It may not look like it, but we are dancing in this picture - they had live music!!
Up in the sky!!
Flower cake commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Dallas Blooms.
It's been raining all day, and Steve is working (yes, on a Saturday)...Emily and I decided we needed to get out of the house for an hour or two, but the options are limited when the weather is bad - so we hit the Shops at Willow Bend and did some window shopping. Here's a pic of Emily trying on sunglasses at Janie & Jack, and then sitting at Starbucks while Mommy was waiting for her coffee.
