My girls had so much fun playing with Emma, Mary Jane, and Laura Ann (we definitely missed Abby and Riley but hopefully they can come next time we all get together!). They dressed up a lot, danced to lots of Disney princess songs, and had an all around great time. Ellie grabbed anyone who stopped moving for more than a minute and asked them to read to her. That little girl loves some books and she was thrilled to have lots of readers around!
On Thursday we went to the YMCA pool. It's a really nice pool with a splash pad area and the girls had a great time. They played for awhile and then stopped to eat the wonderful lunch that Jennifer and Karla fixed. After lunch Ellie got really tired so I took her, Ruthie, and Gin-g back to the house and then I went back to the pool. With just Emmie there I was actually able to sit down and just watch her play...it was so nice! It's been a long time since I didn't have to be in the water with someone at the pool. The girls played for a good long while and Emmie had so much fun being one of the big girls.

Thursday at dinner we celebrated Suzy's birthday...yay...we were glad we were able to be there to celebrate her!

Thursday night Emma and Mary Jane spent the night and Emmie was sad that she didn't get to sleep in the same room as them (I knew she would NEVER get to sleep if she did) but as soon as Emmie and Ellie woke up in the morning they ran in to play with the big girls!
