Ready for some sun...Emma and Ella Grace. We picked up Smoking Pig after church and ate at Chris and Heather's since Aunt Susie was in Oregon with Whitney! The girls wanted to go swimming after lunch and Chris' friends Brooke and Steven came over to see the house. It was a beautiful day.
Loving on each other. Ella Grace wanted her sunglasses.
Look at those hineys! They were checking out the temp of the water
Daddy putting Emma in the pool.
How close can I get to Aunt Heather's new camera?
My turn, Emma says.
Emma running...Chris told his buddy Steven that he was so happy to have a yard now where the girls have room to run and play.
I cried a lot today. Not sure why today was any different than any other. Just woke up missing my dad! I've been thinking about him a lot lately and the memories we made. So for the most part they are sweet tears. I just saw a picture of a friend on her wedding day giving her dad a handkerchief that read..."You'll always be the first man I ever loved." It was so sweet and that turned into the ugly cry. The... I miss you and wish for anything in the world that you were here cry. So I wanted to write today and tell my dad...You'll always be the first man I ever loved. Just in case God allows him to see this today or really I just wanted to put it out there in the universe. Thanks God for giving me such a great man to love.
I mean seriously...how cute are they!!! Ella Grace and Emma before their end of the year program at Perimeter Road Christian School.
The performance pics were dark. I am going to have to seek professional help. (No jokes on that one because I know there could be many) This is Emma when her class first got up to sing.
The Director loves the girls and always tries to comfort them and get them to perform.
Look at Emma's face!!
Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes...
And hear come the crocodile tears
Ella Grace did well for the most part.
Loving on each other after the program!
Mama time...Chris was away at UGA for his Banking school program. Yes, for all of you who didn't know....Chris will eventually add a degree to his two from VSU. This one from UGA!!! Couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

Aunt Heather loves her nieces more than words can express...and yes, I wore my pink scrubs to match the girls!

Kristy came to watch them perform too.
We went to eat at Wooden Nickel after their performance and had a little photo opp while we waited on our food.
up close and personal...Ella Grace was being a ham!
and to prove it...she made her daddy face...I mean doesn't that look like Chris Butler!!
