Carowinds

Today Mama, Dada, and I ventured out to Carowinds (an amusement park that's pretty close to our house). Mama and Dada bought season passes this year so we can go whenever we want! Yay! Today we went to explore what is there and we met the Otto's (they have season passes too!). Mama, Michele, and I spent most of the time in the waterpark. They have an awesome baby pool with lots of different fountains. Here are some pictures of our day.
I took a picture with the Snoopy picture.
(That one's for you Uncle Dave!)
The character Snoopy was there too but
I am not brave enough for that yet.

Dada played a game because he
wanted to win me a stuffed animal.....

......he won me a penguin pillow pet (and another penguin too)

Mama and I pose at the elephant fountain.

The pool had a whole bunch of these cool fountains!

Lounging out and enjoying some veggie chips.

Hi!

I liked stepping into the pool all by myself.

Just lounging in the water.

This is so much fun!

Hello! Close-up!!

I had so much fun with Michele!

Smooches from Mama!

Whew! Water, Fun & Sun makes one tired girl!

Carowinds was so much fun and I am looking forward to going back again soon!

Celebrating Memorial Day

Today we celebrated Memorial Day....thanks to all the men and women who served our country (and a great big Thank you to those past, present, and future....especially my Opa and Pappy!)
We enjoyed a cookout at home today instead of going to the Nascar race. I played cornhole for the first time and enjoyed my first bonfire. Here are pictures of our day....
"Here boys, I've got this! Let me get that beanbag for you!"

Dada sent me to my own cornhole board because I
kept interrupting their game.

Soooo I decided to use it has a slide. Heehee!
 Then it was family picture time......
Pappy and Gammy and their girls.

The Dadas and their girls.

The Mamas and their girls.

I read a sticker book with Pappy....

.....and filled my whole leg with stickers!

Next it was time to climb on Gammy!

I also went for a ride with my blue monkey.

Mallory and I got to enjoy bathtime together one more time......
Brusha, Brusha, Brusha!

One last bathtime.
Enjoying the bonfire....

......and one last snuggle time with Pappy.
Everyone heads home tomorrow. It's been lots of fun having everyone here and I will miss you all! Don't worry....we will see each other again soon!

Jetton Park & Fountain Fun!

Today was such a fun day! Mama, Aunt Mica, Mallory and I went to Jetton Park to enjoy a picnic and the lake. Afterwards we stopped at Birkdale Village and ate some frozen yogurt and then enjoyed the AWESOME fountain that they have there. Here are pictures from our day....
I braved the tunnel at the park!
Mallory went through the tunnel too!
She was quick!

Mama and me at the park.

We ate lunch on a deck that faced Lake Norman.

It was fun eating outside.
We then took a stroll around the whole park. We stopped at the little beach to put our toes in the water. I ended up doing a nose dive and putting my whole body in the water. Oopsie! I only cried a little bit.

A view of me and Lake Norman.
 On the way home we stopped at Birkdale and enjoyed some frozen yogurt and splashing in the fountain.
Woah! What is this???

Ohhh....O.K. This looks fun!

Mallory enjoyed it too, even though she didn't go too
close to the sprinklers.

Woah!

Hi Mama! This is fun!

I even sat down and took my shoes off.

Snuggling in our towels.
Here are some fun videos of us playing at the fountain. That really has be to an "at least once a month" event this summer!

Going to School

Yesterday was a special treat! Gammy and Pappy took me to Mama's school so that I could meet her students. I was shy at first, but Mama has some marshmallows in her classroom and gave me some for a snack. I warmed up quickly after that and enjoyed giving her Kindergarten friends high fives!
Testing out Mama's rocking chair

A picture with her class

Mama wanted to be in one picture too!
She captured a video of me giving high fives. There were so many people that wanted MY attention. It was awesome!

Pappy got here on Wednesday and we all went out to dinner at Boardwalk Billy's. Afterwards, we enjoyed a walk around the pond and went to play on the playground for a little bit.
Here are my cool shades again! Heehee!


Mallory and I got to feed the duckies!
We were both a little scared!

Mallory loves to carry this cooler bag.
It contains both of our milk sippy cups.
She is a great helper!

Weee, Aunt Mica, willl you catch me?
 We are also enjoying playing in my backyard. Uncle Dave, Aunt Mica, and Mallory brought this tent and set it up in our yard. We like to hang out in it and pretend it is the garage for our new bubble lawnmowers.

Tomorrow Gammy, Pappy, Uncle Dave and Dada are going to the Nationwide Nascar race. That means it's a girls day for Mama, Aunt Mica, Mallory, and me....which also means another new post very soon! ;-)
