Gabby and I went to Louisiana to spend the night with Gigi. We had a great time just visiting with her and playing with the super colorful bubbles that were gigantic. Gabby helped Gigi feed the birds and we watched them eat. Then Gabby and Great Aunt Lisa played in the yard while I sat on the porch visiting with Gigi watching the sunset. No visit to Gigi's is complete without a delicious Cajun roast and rice and gravy dinner that we all enjoyed. We laughed and played with Gabby. Then once she went to bed Grandma and I reminisced about the good ole days. It was a very fun visit.
The next morning it was time to get read to go to Blakeleigh's first birthday party. The party didn't start until 2:00; however, Gigi was too anxious and we arrived by 12:30 but had to wait until 2:00 for Miss Blakeleigh to wake from her nap. Gigi really enjoyed playing with Sadie, another baby at the party, and Gabby even got a turn hold the sweet nine month old baby girl.
The party was bunny themed because Blakeleigh won Miss Rabbit. The party was elegant and beautiful. The bunnies were precious just like Blakeleigh. It was the perfect sized party with all of Blakeleigh's beloved friends and family surrounding her while she opened her gifts (with a little too much help from Gabby I might add). Then the cake. Oh the cake was hilarious! She literally dug into her cake and ate it for about thirty minutes, enjoying every second of it! We had a lot of fun visiting with Gabby's Great Great Aunt Jenny and Great Great Aunt Lou. It was wonderful seeing Ryan and the family. After the party we headed home after dropping Gigi and Aunt Lisa at their home. Gabby cried she wanted to live with Gigi and never wanted to leave. I am so glad she loved her slumber party and girl's only weekend so much!
Happy First Birthday Blakeleigh!
