Lake House Day

This weekend we went to Grandma and Papa's lake house and it was quite eventful.  Gabby adores the lake house and begs to go there constantly.  Once there is mention of the lake house there is no backing out, so even though Daddy drove over 2000 miles for work during the week (traveling every single day of the week) we agreed to go.

This weekend Daddy got off of work a little early on Friday and then the three of us headed to the lake house where Aunt Ellen, Grandma, and Papa were waiting for us.  We arrived around 9:30 and stayed up until 11:00 visiting with Gabby snuggling with Aunt Ellen the entire time.  When we awoke the next morning Gabby was so excited.  She just wanted to play outside, so her and Papa rode in the golf cart and visited with family.  

We had a lot to squeeze in in one day.  We took some Halloween photos, celebrated Mom's belated birthday, fished, made s'mores, played in the tree house, and took a boat ride.  Gabby stated that her favorite part of the trip was playing with her second cousin, Cade.  So sweet.  It was a relaxing visit with too much delicious food and even with truck trouble on the way home the trip was wonderful!

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.

Deep In the Heart of Texas!

Gabby's dance recital theme this year was "Texas."  Gabby's tap and jazz class chose "Deep In the Heart of Texas!"  Gabby worked extremely hard to learn her dance over the past two months and I must say she did amazing! I loved watching her put on a big smile and shake her hips in her tutu while pumping her heart in the dance.  She did very well and seemed so confident while performing on stage (although that wasn't truly the case).

Yesterday at the dress rehearsal Gabby heard people laughing (because her dance is so stinking adorable) and Gabby was very upset that people were laughing at her.  I calmed her down after ensuring her everyone loved their dance and were just being interactive because they were enjoying singing along \the song and clapping when while singing.  They ran through their dance twice on stage and did amazing the second time, but I think the fact that they ran through their dance twice made Gabby feel like they weren't doing i…
