Sunset Beach - 2010

We celebrated the end of summer at the beach with Ella Grace's Godparents - the Schwartz's. A wonderful time was had by all. Ella Grace loved feeding the seagulls!

Last dog-days of summer....

Today we went to one of the best kept secrets in Charlotte...and its right across the street from our neighborhood! Ella Grace had a blast. For the 1st half hour we had the spray park to ourselves, after that a few more kids joined us, I think Ella Grace had just as much fun watching them play as she did playing in the water.

A visit to the Ranch

Today we visited the Lazy 5 Ranch. We had a wonderful time. We got to feed all kinds of animals - ostriches, giraffes, piggies, deer, zebras, rhino,llamas, goats, and many many more. It's so fun to visit this farm. You start out your visit with a drive - thru safari....the animals actually stick their heads into your car to eat from your food buckets. After you are finished you can go thru a wonderful little petting zoo and feed the baby animals. Ella Grace loved all the animals, but I think her favorites where the exotic birds and the baby piggies. She kept pointing to all the animals and calling them by name!

Auntie Reb's wedding!

Well I'm finally getting around to blogging about my sister's wedding at Seabrook Island! The wedding was beautiful. I was the matron of Honor and Ella Grace was the flower girl. What an honor. Rebecca and I were stressing because up until a week before the wedding Ella Grace still wasn't walking. Then lo, and behold, just in the nick of time, she not only began walking but also running. Ella Grace was just darling walking down the isle with her flower basket. Instead of dropping the rose petals as planned she decided she wanted to hand them out to all the guests as she made her way towards the end of the isle. We really enjoyed meeting all of Nehemiah's family. Ella Grace's favorite part of the wedding was sharing a cupcake with Papa.
