Frozen on Ice!

Friday, April 17 we emptied our living room so the carpets could get cleaned early Saturday morning. Then we went out to eat for dinner since our kitchen was full of living room furniture! When we got back, little tot CRASHED on the living room floor!

I'd never seen her THAT deep in sleep where she didn't wake up once we got in the house. We were cracking up. We let her sleep there while we did Rylie's shower and got her tucked in, then we put baby girl to bed. Poor girl was exhausted after playing in MOPS that morning, then bike riding all afternoon!

Saturday morning, the carpet guys came and I took our princesses to Frozen on Ice!

The Easter bunny gave them tickets and they were so excited it was finally time for the show!

Remy thought at first she was going to get to ice skate too! I had to explain everything to her beforehand!

She didn't really want to cooperate for photos lol

Rylie's hair was a hot mess, but this is what she said she wanted, to look like "Anna coronation."

I only bought the program because it's hard to get photos at these shows and this book has great photos for them to look back on! We don't buy any other expensive snacks/souvenirs at these and the girls knew better than to ask! $20 popcorn and $12 sno cone? No thanks!

Show's starting!

Mickey and Minnie kicked it off. Don't you just want her ice skates? I love them!

Had to photograph Timon and Pumba for Remy! She still loves The Lion King!

Other princesses and Disney characters singing and dancing

One more photo for Remy!

Finally Frozen began! They did the entire movie!

The crowd roared when Olaf came out!!

Such a sweet show! Rylie LOVED it! Remy? Not so much. I bought....ahem, the Easter bunny bought these back in July when they first went on sale and didn't know how Remy would be by April. We took a chance and didn't want to leave her out since she loves Frozen as much as big sister. But I don't think she really was ready to sit through a 2-hour show! I held her most of the time, attempting to take pictures. Then she wanted to lay in the chairs while Rylie sat in my lap. Then Remy started fussing that she wanted to go home and see Daddy. I made the mistake of not bringing her lovey and she started crying for it. Then she almost fell asleep in my arms. I just hated the thought of not buying her a ticket last year and her being left out and crying to go. So to me, it was still worth bringing her and letting her see what it's like and now we know to wait awhile before doing it again!

Cinderella and Playdate in the Park

I'm going to try to play catchup. I've had a lot going on the past few weeks and still a lot more to come, so I've fallen behind on blogging. I keep saying if I can just get through May and the month hasn't even started yet! You probably won't hear much on the blog this month, but I'll try to keep updating when I get a few minutes here and there.

I forgot to blog this sooner. On March 29, we took our Girl Scout troop to see Cinderella in the theater. It was the last day of cookie sales (literally, our last booth was at 2pm that day) so we were celebrating the end of a successful cookie season (and first year to do booths)!

I'm definitely glad cookie season is over! It was a LOT of work this year doing booths, but it was worth it. Our troop sold over 4,000 boxes so we have some troop money to do some FUN things like going to the movie and buying each girl a snack pack and lots more fun things planned for the future!

Wednesday, April 15 I took Remy to a MOPS playdate at a local park!

She doesn't get many playdates at the park like Rylie used to at her age, so she was excited to go to a "new playground" and see friends!

She was very busy!

Mostly, she loved digging in the sand! It's funny because she asked me the night before, randomly, if there would be sand there and I said no. Oops! I didn't know there would be!

A friend who came brought lots of bubbles and shared! I felt bad I didn't think to bring Remy's. She was glad someone else brought them though!

We packed picnic lunches and ate at the tables and then played some more!

Do you think she's having fun?!

Always doing her gymnastics!

Thinking about life.....

Blowing on a dandelion, making a wish!

Her favorite thing to do, really was throwing hand-fulls of sand into the standing water the rain the night before left!

And doing a little dance after each throw! lol

That afternoon she got to ride her tricycle in our cul de sac. Probably the perfect day for little tot! We've been doing a LOT of bike riding in the afternoons, but I'll save Rylie's photos/video for another post, because it's a big one!

I also have to keep Remy out of the trees in our cul de sac! Always climbing, little monkey!
