Mini Me

Vada wore my old ballet costume to her Dancing Princesses class this weekend. It is quite big on her but she is so happy wearing it.

String Summit

We spent the past several days at the Northwest String Summit – a bluegrass musical festival just west of Portland. We camped with several families with kids around Vada’s age. Vada had a blast running around like crazy with the kids. And we were able to listen to some music as well!

Firework Day

Vada was totally into the 4th of July this year. She loved the fireworks and wasn’t afraid at all. We alternated shooting small things in our driveway with watching off our back deck for bigger fireworks.

Dancing Princesses

For anyone who knows Vada I don’t think I even need to explain how excited she is to start dancing princesses today. It is a class at a local rec center that is a little bit ballet and dance but mostly princess dresses, wands, and crowns.

Little Lady

Apparently even on a van camping trip to the desert jewelry is a must.

The Pool!

We are having a warm weather spell this week so we pulled out the solar blanket on the pool to see if we could get the temperature up. Vada and I came home today to find Toban swimming in the pool… So we immediately stripped Vada down and had her join too!

Happy Mothers Day

Vada’s preschool invited all the moms to a special Mother’s Day tea on Friday afternoon. They served (very watered down) lemon tea and raspberry scones they made that morning. The teachers had helped each kid answer some questions about their mom. It was all very sweet… Even for the moms whose kids thought they were 100 years old.

Art Show

Vada had her art show today. She had kept her art project a complete secret from us. We even tried to trick her into telling us and she never wavered.
