Translation: pretty dress

That's what Violet says when we wrap her up in her bath towel.

Violet saw her first movie today. We went to the $2 showing of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. We thought we'd test going to the movies with a $2 show. I'd rather be out $6 than $30 if she fussed and wanted to leave.

She did really well. She didn't like how loud it was and got squirmy the last half hour.

We've been telling her for a couple days now that we were going to go see a movie and get popcorn. I think she was more excited about the popcorn than the movie.

Lots of yummy food.

Everybody chipped in and rented a bounce house. Violet was timid at first but quickly warmed up.

We had to start the fireworks early because rain was coming. The guys set it all up at end of the culdesac and everybody sits at the top of the street and watches.

Here's the last shot just before the rain really started to come down.

All dressed up for Hailey's 4th birthday. I made her a cherry apron that's reversible. I wish this picture has turned out better. She was dancing around the kitchen and I didn't have time to get my good camera so grabbed my little point and shoot and snapped this pic. To bad it's a bit fuzzy.

Pretty table.

First chocolate covered strawberry. Of course she ate mostly the chocolate and left the strawberry. She also didn't eat most of the other treats.

Of course the ate all the ice cream and cupcake.
