So once again I’ve been a bad, bad blog owner. I am often composing and posting blog posts in my brain. I need to figure out a better way to transfer them over to my actual blog 🙂 So, today’s post will be a bit of a cornucopia of a post; A whole bunch of stuff shoved into one post. Bear with me 🙂
Maddie’s Dance Recital:
Oh my goodness. I was so proud of my girlie! Maddie was so very excited and she did just wonderfully. She had a ballet number (which I ugly cried during its entirety) and a tap number (I was proud yet composed). It was so fun to see her smile and dance. She really enjoyed herself up and there and had FUN. I was so proud of her. And I gained a new appreciation for my parents as they sat through many a recital or concert or musical for me growing up. I now understood what my mom felt when she would say she was more nervous for me than I was! But as you can see from the pictures, she was just beyond excited!
A Visit from Great Granny!
Ben’s grandma, who lives in Ohio, and her friend Vince were traveling to Boston and stopped for a visit along the way. This was Great Granny’s first visit with Selah! We had a great time visiting with them, as well as Ben’s parents.
We had the joy of getting to spend a little bit of Father’s Day with each Dad. We spent breakfast and church with Ben’s dad and had dinner and dessert with my dad. And we got to be around our favorite “daddy,” Ben, all day long.
Please Touch Museum:
Yesterday Ben and I took the kids to Philly for the first time. Oh I think I may have a city girl on my hands, with Madelyn 🙂 Just like her momma, she loved the hustle and bustle of the city! We started by going to the Please Touch Museum. If you live in the area, you have to check this place out, it was so much fun! We met up with two of my college McKee girls, Becky and Kate, who brought along their adorable boys. We had a great morning watching all the kids explore. Afterwards, we ventured out into the city to find Mad Mex, one of Ben’s favorite Mexican restaurants from our Pittsburgh days. We heard there was one in Philly so I wanted to take him there. It was a great place to take the kids–the booth was big enough for them to move around a bit and it was loud enough that no one noticed us 🙂 And I got my Blue Cornbread so I was a happy momma 🙂
