Our summer has been especially busy leaving very little time for me to share photos or blog events that happened in Gabby's life. I must say the older she gets the more fun she is! I didn't think it was possible to grow closer to Gabby, but everyday she surprises me and every day is a new adventure.
Our first visit was from Grandpa and Emma. They make an annual trip and we love the special quiet time just the three of them. I think it solidifies their bond more and more each year! Grandpa took them to the park and Chick-Fil-A. Care, Reagan, and Molly joined in the fun with Aunt Danielle as well!! Grandpa is never happier than when he is surrounded by his grand babies!
This year on my day off I took Emma and Gabby to the zoo. We made a day of it and fed the giraffes, rode the carousel, saw animatronic bugs, and even bought a souvenir.
The next visit was a week with Katie and Carly. They swam, painted, played, watched movies, had their nails painted, and we also took them to the zoo. It is the most time Gabby had ever spent with them and I think she really enjoyed getting to know them better.
We have also have the unique privilege of having a weekly slumber party with Molly, Cate, and Reagan. It's always filled with laughter, messes, ice cream, movies and love. It is so funny how much Molly and Gabby are like. The have fun together and fight as if they were sisters! These three girls are the sweetest and it's so nice getting to "catch up" on a little of the time we have missed since they have always lived over seas. It's so fun getting to know all of their sweet and different personalities!
