Elle has been visiting a lot of her friends lately.  First, she had to wish Gran a happy birthday.

For some reason she loved the better air bear and had to give him a hug.

Elle loves Wendy and had to share the hugs with her also.

Then, a quick break from visits to show off some tap dancing skills.

Elle had her friend Hollis posing with Bob the Builder and the cat Pilcher.

Not much to say except that beautiful sunflowers make for a great picture.

So, we've been home from the beach for six days and I'm finally posting some pictures. Somehow, I've never had as much difficulty readjusting after a vacation but the laundry is finished now and there's just a few more things to put away.

We spent last week in Folly Beach, SC with Ryan's family and extended family. We went into Charleston a few times and did a lot of relaxing at the beach. Elle especially enjoyed playing in the sand and water, riding the slide at the water park, a horse and carriage ride, her bed on the floor, and playing with her castle toy wherever she went. Elle also learned how to fly a kite for the first time.

Elle has her toys and chips. All set for the beach.

Elle finally decided to ride the water slide.

Fire Engine at Gymboree

Today some of the wonderful Sandy Springs firefighters came to visit Gymboree.  Jen, the great manager at Sandy Springs Gymboree Play and Music, was so thoughtful to arrange this for the kids but of course that meant that there were an outbreak of fires in the area so the fire engine and crew were a little late.  But that was OK because many of the kids enjoyed so good bonding time with the firefighters waiting in line for ice cream at TCBY.
This is about as much of a pose as you can get out of Elle and Hollis.

Visit from Gramdma and Grandpa

Sunday Elle's Grandma and Grandpa came to visit from Clemson and we enjoyed and yummy lunch at Maggiano's and some shopping at the mall.  Here's my attempt at a picture of Elle and the grandparents together.

Abandoned Blog

So, I started a blog and then abandoned it.  Well, let's pick up where we left off.  This picture was taken 5 days after the picture of the pacis in the trash can.
I pretty much knew it was too soon to go cold turkey but before we left the house that day she came to me whining saying "You'll never let me have my pacis again!"  I quickly replied that she was the one that threw them away.  Yes, that is the same yellow one that was in the trash.  I quickly grabbed them and washed them.  Well, we will tackle this battle at a later date.  
MC commented that I should have hidden them in that potty seat.  That gave me the idea that the pacis could be treats for using the potty but that may be more like two steps forward and one step back.
I'll be back with more later.
