Busy weekend-thanks for the memories.

Showing her "sign" aka 3 years!

-Friday was Saylor's 3rd birthday she is getting so big and as always her personality is too.  She said she wanted to go out for a birthday lunch, but we decided to make it a big celebration and celebrate her birthday and Sky's last day of kindergarten at the same time and we decided on dinner.  We went out to Bucca de Beppo!  It was awesome and way too much food, but both of the kids were happy and ate well.  While we were eating, Sky burst into tears and said he missed kindergarten and he would miss all his friends and teachers and of course I had to fight back tears because I myself was having a hard time coming to terms with him leaving kindergarten as well, but after my mother and I explained that he would eventually be returning to school he finished his dinner and we had a great night.

- Saturday was Saylor's Princess Party.  

Prettiest Princess EVER!

I had made a princess cake with the help of my sister the night before which took a while and didn't come out anything like the picture, but Saylor loved it and that's what counts right?  She wore a princess dress of course and ended up with some great gifts.  My mother got her a bitty baby (American Girl Doll) with 2 changes of clothes as well as bottle and bib and she fell in love and named it Lilybryan!  We got her a trike and she got some really awesome outfits.   Thanks to everyone for the presents.  The party was fun and went off without a hitch.

-Sunday was Saylor's friend Audrey's birthday party and we had a great time there as well.  It is always cute to watch how children interact with each other.

At Audrey's Birthday!

- Monday is Memorial Day and we had a pretty take it easy day.  The kids played with Saylor's new toys and layed low until after nap when it was time to go to my mom and dad's house for swimming and BBQ!  They swam and then the weather turned nasty so we went in and ate some delicious food.  We all had a great time and the poor baby was super exhausted and passed out immediately fell asleep after his bath tonight.  

Goggley Eyes!

It was a great weekend full of memories I love my kids and I can't believe what wonderful little people they are becoming.  I am still having a hard time with Sky going to first grade I feel like the time has just slipped by me and it is hard to think back and remember his baby years.  I am hanging onto every baby moment with Strider because I know how fast time flies and it seems like yesterday they were all babies and now they are 5 , 3 and 9 months.

So, so cute! I love the folling things: Saylor's dress, the look on Sky's face, that adorable baby and Lilybryan Bitty Baby! Maggie got the big "Brave Emily" a few years ago and we just add to it every year- it's addicting.

The cutest kids EVER! And, with the exception of my beautiful daughters, they are the light of my life! It was a great weekend filled with memories of joy, love and laughter. Happy 3rd Birthday to Saylor, and Happy Graduation (from Kindergarten) to Sky. I am so proud of both of them.
Love, Grandma Robin
