A Week of P's

What a busy week! It seems like I was running every minute. Here is a run down of our week of "P's."

First of all, I hope this doesn't gross anyone out (I blocked out the evidence), but to me this is totally blog worthy! We got poop in the potty. Can I get a "WOO HOO!" Ella Grace was SO proud of herself, and I was proud of her, too. She called her Granny and Papaw to tell them the good news. She said, "Poo poo potty. Candy." I think she was most excited that she got candy afterwards.

Look at that face. She is so proud.

We are really enjoying Ella Grace's play group that meets once a week. This week we were supposed to meet at our house, but at the last minute we decided to go to the park instead to take advantage of the wonderful weather we are having.

Emily is always giving Ella hugs. They also go to Gymboree together. It's so fun to watch them make a friendship.

Thursday night, Evan and Ella Grace went to a birthday party at the Jump Zone and had THE best time.

Look at that perfect sliding form.

Friday the Mommy & Me group went to a local pumpkin patch. EG got to pick out a pumpkin, go on a hayride, and see some live animals. She loves animals, so I was shocked when she wouldn't get very close to them. She wanted to look at them, but kept her distance. Her favorite part of the morning was this swing.

Miniature horses. She wouldn't get very close at all to them.

I love the expression on her face here. She got a little closer to the baby chickens and ducks.

"Bye bye, chickens."

Very smelly chickens.

This spider creeped me out. It is about to lay eggs. YIKES!

She got to try molasses on a cracker. She didn't like it though.

Me and my favorite girl waiting to go on our hayride.

Ella Grace wants to do everything herself. She actually was able to pull this heavy pumpkin a little ways.

Now, we are off to my nephew, Stone's, birthday party. What a great week. One more "P"...I'm pooped!
