Aunt Patsy and I conversing:
Sunday evening we headed to a friend's house for a cookout. Delicious food and fun times with friends. Ellie had a lot of fun playing in the pool with Addison and her new friend, Claire. She also got to hold a live worm for the first time. She was very hesitant at first, even after Addison and Claire were touching/holding them, but eventually she decided to go for it with much encouragement. She ended up thinking it was very interesting and fun.
Claire, Ellie, and Addison (Ellie refused to look at the camera):
Monday we had a day at the pool, then an evening at the local park. Holly Springs was hosting an Indepedence Day celebration. Ellie was able to bounce in a inflatable thing, color, sing/dance, and sit in a fire truck. We didn't stay for the fireworks (which I'm not happy about), but instead went home for ice cream. Turned out to be a great weekend, although the girls are definitely exhausted. Next year we definitely are going to see some fireworks, daddy promised me!
