Busy Weekend

We've had a packed weekend. Saturday Gabriella and I went to a shower for a couple that is adopting a brother and sister (3 and 5 yrs old) from Vietnam. They are part of a group that has gotten started of families in Central Florida that have or are in process of adopting internationally. Can you believe I didn't get any pics??????? Arghhhh.

Today we went to Gabriella's friend Madisyn's first birthday party about an hour away. It was at a park on a lake and was a lot of fun. It was so fun to see her again as it's been several months and she's gotten so big!!!! Bad mommies didn't get a picture of the two girls other than this next one ( ummmm, ignore my hair, it was extremely windy! ) We missed the birthday girl digging into her cake as we were at the car taking care of some stinky business.


Gabriella absolutely LOVES, LOVES, LOVES to swing. She giggles and smiles the whole time. She wasn't happy when mommy took her out.



She enjoyed the cake as you can tell. She definitely has a sweet tooth.


Hanging with daddy.



Some pictures from the rest of the weekend.

She kept turning over her shopping cart and climbing onto it.




Her party dress from Saturday.

Not that she doesn't always look gorgeous, but that last photo is so beautiful. I love that dress. Looks like a fun-filled busy weekend. Isn't it awful when you forget your camera or can't access it. Trying to capture all those precious memories.
