Andy and Ruthie's Wedding

These pictures are totally not in order - Sorry, too lazy to fix that ;)

Eating yummy lunch with Jeff, Rylea, Sis. Marilyn and Bro. Davis:

The grounds were beautiful, and Cadence LOVED all the fountains.

 Hey look, now we're back in the middle of the wedding!

I love her dollar store hat :D

Getting three kids to smile at the same time is hard....

Ok... now we're back before the wedding. I thought it was sweet watching Tony carry his little sweetheart around, with her in one arm and her hat in the other.

A Fun Day Today

Playing “Stop! Go!”,
blowing bubbles as a potty treat,
chasing Mama with the sprinkler,
hot dogs for lunch,
watching Daddy mow,
then playing in the sand with front end loaders and dump trucks –
a guitar concert in the park with lots of swinging and playing,
reciting our strength and shield memory verse,
playing with the armor of God,
singing Jesus songs with Daddy playing guitar…
ten second hugs,
and Eskimo kisses at night-night time.

It just doesn’t get much better than this!

Zoo Trip and Last of May Pictures

The last day of school I took Cadence to the zoo to see the new baby elephants before the summer rush.

She had so much fun the whole time we were there. For some reason she was really impressed the gorilla was sitting down, and loved ALL the monkeys.

Until this one "attacked" her. She was sitting there, and they were waving at each other, and the orangutang came running over and put his hand on the glass by her face. Eek! After she finished crying she went back over there and waved bye-bye, so there were no hard feelings :)

She LOVED the elephants. For the next several weeks she couldn't stop talking about the 'big BIG' elephants, and made trumpeting sounds, and told her stuffed animals all about the big big baby.

One of her favorite stops was the ducks, fish and turtles. Sometimes I think she just likes the word turtle.

Of course, the tigers were a hit too... how could they not be?

Sweet or ornery...?
This is how Cdence stands still - with her feet always moving.

May Pictures Round Two

She's getting really good with scissors :)
 Life size Cadence portrait:
 Adding some more color - her feet are always popping up!
 Thank you for the diapers Belle  Isle staff!

 Cadence LOVES brushing her teeth, and begs to do it several times a day.

 Picnic with Gramma and Uncle Alex...

 Tony's last day of work - we went up to visit and eat lunch with him.

May Pictures Round One

Last day with Grace - Cadence still asks about her, but doesn't cry or anything when I remind her she's "bye-bye"

 "Mama - Grace licked me with her tongue!"
 The big blue one is a duck, the little blue one is a cow, and the red one is Daddy. She told me that when she was painting, and her story stayed consistent until I took the picture down to put it away.

 Spring concerts...
 Cadence concentrated VERY hard, and conducted very well :)

 Decorating cupcakes at Gramma's:

 Cool? Or not...
