Fun weekend

We had a great weekend. It was short but definitely a lot of fun! We went to Maw Maw's Saturday morning and then came home to take a nap before Pat, Katelyn, and Taylor came over for taco night and a celebration to their engagement. Gabbie loves playing with her new cousin to be!
Sunday morning we headed to the park around 9am. Gabbie played and played. This park actually has 3 playgrounds all together for different age groups and she loved it. We stayed for almost 2 hours and then came home for lunch and a nap. I went to lunch with Jenn and we made plans to head to the park later again with all of the kids.

So Maw Maw came over and we headed to the park to meet the J family for some more fun. Gabbie of course had a blast at the park with everyone. I am amazed at how fearless she is now at the park. She even went down a super tall twisting slide all by herself. Of course I was quite worried but she did it over and over again and pretty much had no fear. Now for pictures.

This picture was taken Saturday evening. I think Gabbie looks so grown up!

Going to the park walking with daddy

She loves these things. I remember doing them when I was little too. I couldn't even pull myself up once now if I tried!

Gabbie running to daddy

Running from daddy. We did this over and over again.

Jack - He is getting so big. He is two months younger than Gabbie but officially a lot taller. I knew the time would come when he would pass up my petite girl.

Gabbie and Baby Jordyn or her little sister as Gabbie would call her.

My little monkey hanging again.

I love this one!

Gabbie went down the slide over and over again with her drink.

This was taken two years ago about two months after Gabbie came home. She was almost 7 months old. She was such a chunk!

This was take this morning.....

and this afternoon! I am amazed at the difference. She still has that amazing smile though.

Finally Gabbie and Maw Maw. Of course ONLY Maw Maw could push Gabbie. She told me to go away. I am chopped liver when she is around:)
