Another cousin got Married!

My parents spent part of last week in NJ visiting family and the week ended on the north side of Philidelphia for my cousin Stephen's wedding. His little sister Lindsay just got married 3 months prior. Unfortunately, we weren't able to make it to CA for Lindsay's wedding, but we did get to meet the lucky guy last Sunday.

Steve and Lauren's wedding was a lot of fun, and i think it'll be a long time before we forget how much fun Eliana had! She loved the dance floor and had a blast playing with Clara!

We're so happy for you!

Norfolk Botanical Gardens

We've recently had the pleasure of visiting Norfolk Botanical Gardens twice. They have the greatest childrens' area called "World of Wonders". Eliana loved it and had so much fun playing in the fountains. It makes getting a yearly pass very tempting, especially since you can get any 6 people in each time. Here's some pictures to enjoy. :)

Just so cute...

I can't help but post these pictures of my little ringlet-beauty. She loves "reading", and I'm so glad that books are her favorite toys!

I don't know why it's taken me so long to give Eliana finger paints to play with, maybe I just didn't want to deal with the mess (though that wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be), but I finally did last week, and she had a blast! We got out one of daddy's old t-shirts for a smock, and started creating!
