so much fun..so little time

We have had a busy weekend while Ryan's been away! On Saturday, the girls and I drove up to Orlando to see my parents. The girls were great in the car...it was a huge blessing. I couldn't have asked for a better trip with them. We spent Saturday afternoon with my mom at Downtown Disney. The girls had a blast! Emma decided to dress up like Belle for the day, and I want everyone to give me props for allowing it!! She left the house that morning in a cute little Crewcuts outfit, and ended up walking around in public in a bright yellow tulle dress that was about two sizes too small and plastic high heels that were five sizes too big. Mommy's ego took a big hit, but Emma loved every second of it. She even walked around singing songs about what a beautiful princess she was. Madeline was so excited to be there that I think she stopped breathing a few times....she would scream and then hold her breath and shake with excitement. She kept yelling, "Disney, Mommy, Disney"! And this was just Downtown Disney, I can't imagine her excitement when we take her to the Magic Kingdom.

Today we went to Sea World with Grammy and Pop Pop. We only planned on staying for a few hours, but we were having so much fun that we decided to stay all day. My dad was even wanting to stay longer, and that's saying a lot! Madeline loved Shamu and Emma loved to watch the animals do tricks at the Pet's Ahoy show. Claire made it easy on us and slept the entire time we were there. The girls took a long nap in the stroller while we were there, but by the time we left they were still ready for bed. I bet they'll sleep good tonight!
Emma and Madeline both loved spending these past few days with Grammy and Pop Pop and will be sad to go home tomorrow. We have a busy couple of days ahead...my month long Boot Camp starts tomorrow and Emma has school on Tuesday and dance camp on Wednesday, so we need to head home:( Maybe we'll have to come back again with Daddy in a few weeks for another visit.

Your girls are so precious and you sound like such a great mom. I wish we lived closer! Hopefully I will get to meet them someday! I am jealous of your boot camp. I need to get myself back in shape. Do they have a nursery for Claire?

um my boot camp is called work. i have no time to do anything let alone EAT!

your girls are so friggin cute. i love that emma wore that outfit. when i read your blog it makes me realize that if we end up with a slew of girls it will be okay. i guess its when they're teenagers that it will get ugly right?!

ps doesn't it feel like an eternity when the hubby is away?

I'll definitely give you some props for the Bella outfit...she did look super cute in it though. :)
What is this boot camp and how is it ANY different than what you've been doing for the past month and a half?
Let get together this week or next. Emma is in school everyday this year right? Do you know yet if your going back to work at the gym yet? And are you coming to playground on Wednesday?
