Presley and I drove up to Nashville, then Kentucky last week. It was a great trip!! I didn't get any pictures of Pres with kiki, but she had a ball at their house. Kiki and Pres watched So you think you can dance one night and had a ball dancing to the songs. She loved playing at Kiki's and eating all the fruit she bought for her. Thanks for everything, Kiki. Next time, I have to get a picture of you two!!
I don't get up to Louisville too often, so it was wonderful to go for a week and see all my extended family. We stayed at Mark and Julia's house. Max and Olivia were the BEST babysitters all week! They are Presley and Liam's best friends now. Presley seems like she has grown up so much these past few weeks. She's talking really well and really starting to understand things better. She amazes me sometimes with what comes out of her mouth. Here they are playing follow the leader.
Eating a cupcake at Uncle Kevin's house.
She got her first barbie doll from Uncle Kevin and Aunt Toni. She got the Sleeping Beauty one and told Mallie it looked like her.
We didn't get to see Cameron for Father's Day, but we did get to celebrate with Dallie, Pop and Mark. I wish we could've seen Cameron, even just for the day. He is such a wonderful father to Presley. She loves him so much and he has taught her so much in 2 short years. He truly has devoted himself to our family and is a better father than I could have ever imagined. Thanks for all you do for our family! Especially, sitting in the desert heat in El Paso for 9 weeks straight! We miss you and can't wait to see you this weekend!!
Presley loves vents in houses... she is often sitting on top of them or putting her hair over it so it can blow in the wind. Here is Barbie's hair blowing in the wind.
Olivia did Presley's hair "like a princess" one day. She looked so pretty with her tiara. Needless to say, we are in a total princess phase right now. She loves playing dress up in her princess dresses and watching princess movies.
Cameron sent Uncle Tim his sniper suit he made back when he was in OBC at Fort Bliss. Here is Max decked out in the suit. Liam is trying to find him...
Playing with all my cousins at Uncle Tim's house. It was so nice to be around all these people again!! I have missed them all so much and wish we lived closer and could hang out like this more often.
Mal, Debbie and Tim babysat one night so all the cousins could go to dinner. Tim made a boat out of this rubbermaid and the kids were entertained for hours!
We also met my cousin Jill and her triplets at a bounce house one day! We had 10 kids between 4 adults... a little crazy!
We drove to Birmingham this weekend on our way back down to Georgia. We got to have a birthday party for Caden and played with D, G and Rere and see all their pictures from their trip to Italy. It was a nice night!
We had a birthday party on Saturday near Columbus for one of my best friend's from college, Abby's, 3 kids. It was so nice to get to see her and all their family!! I wish they lived in Georgia still so we could hang out weekly, but we have gotten to see them more lately than ever so I'm not complaining... here's one of the birthday boys, William.
Bulldog and Nana stopped by on their way home from Florida last night. We had a wonderful visit. Bulldog read Presley numerous books before bed and Nana brought Presley lots of treats. It was a wonderful night. I'm glad we're close enough to be able to get to see them more than once a year now.
Our travels aren't quite over, but we will get to see Cameron this weekend. I know Presley is SUPER excited to see him. She has been talking about him a lot the past few days. I do feel like we've traveled a little too much cause tonight she was telling me she wants to go home... I had to tell her we are home. I know she's enjoyed being surrounded by other people, especially all the kids. We've had some really good trips, but are anxiously awaiting seeing Cameron this weekend then shortly after that for good!! Thanks to both our families for everything the past few weeks, especially Big D for taking care of Marge and Phil so Presley and I could travel! It has been a huge help not to worry about them or leave them at a vet's office. I know they've enjoyed being in Birmingham and playing with him.
