Totally Fun Tuesday

Bowling all by herself

Lifting 20% of her body weight, no sweat

The alligator helped her roll the ball down the ally
We had a ton of fun

Gabby knocked down all but one pin!!

She decided it was also a slide


The "walker" helping her skate

Can you tell she loves him?

The furthest she skated independently

Look at her go

Approximately one second after I shot this picture she fell forward, busted her nose and lip, and we got of the rink to clean up the blood.  She was a trooper.

The finale of the day: Her Tangled comforter came in

So today, as most days in the McIlroy home was a Gabby day.  We filled the day full of fun.  We started at the habachi grill (more for Mommy and Daddy) and Gabby ate more of my steak and noodle than I did.  Then we tried to go skating which Gabby has been dying to try out but they weren't open yet so we took a detour to bowling since it was $2 Tuesday.  Boy did we luck out on a cheap and very fun day of activities. 

Since I am on vacation I will not be verbose, but rather allow the old adage a picture is worth a thousand words do the work for me instead.

Rock Star Party

Gabby's party was everything she imagined it.  The 22 girls enjoyed getting their hair and make up done.  Then they all put on their head set microphone and then headed onto stage and enjoyed performing their favorite songs.  The girls seemed to really like the party that Gabby planned.  After cake and gifts the girls went back to the stage for an encore (or 5).  A few of the moms at the party even attempted to escape from one of our escape rooms.  Gabby seemed to love having the run of Escape Artist and showing off the rooms to all of her friends.  It is amazing how many people love and care for Gabby.  We are so grateful for all of the friends and fun that was had at her party!  

Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day was a relaxing day.  Michael has been working extremely hard building things at the escape room.  We decided to spend the day with his best friend.  It was a fun and relaxing day enjoying the kids and cooking burgers.  I think these pictures depict our day:

I think Gabby knows that she is so blessed to have such a loving, caring, involved fun Daddy.  I know that I am lucky to have such an amazing partner sharing this crazy life of parenting and making memories.  We love you Michael and we both feel so blessed for the ways you choose to so your love.  You make our lives amazing.  Love you.

Becoming a Marlin

One evening while eating dinner at Texas Roadhouse (our usual on Friday nights so we can see Daddy for an hour while he’s working) Gabby saw Olympic swimmers on the television and said I want to do that.  Michael and I have been wanting Gabby to become less fearful of the water and a stronger swimmer so we immediately agreed that becoming a swimmer was a great idea.  Two weeks later I had all of the information needed and we were signed up for the neighborhood swim team.  Little did I know how intense summer swim team would be!
To be allowed on the team you must be capable of swimming across the entire 25 meter pool, there is no time limit and you are allowed to hold on to the rope as much as you need.  Gabby made it across the pool in about 2 minutes, 20 seconds with a lot of encouragement from the coaches and a lot of holding onto the ropes and taking breaks.  I must add that the evaluation was in April and it was cold, but she never even mentioned the temperature of the water the…
