An Evening at the Boardwalk

Lily loved to copy Liana as much as she could, but she has always loved trying to be just like her.

There were lots of hugs on this trip together. If we left each other for just moments, Lily and Marah would embrace as though they hadn't seen each other in years! It was so sweet!

We had such a wonderful vacation with Beth, Marah, Liana, and David!

The girls were always having fun together, no matter where we were!

The Children's Museum

We spent the second morning at the Children's Museum. The girls really enjoyed going from station to station inventing things, being creative, and having fun.

In Lily's vacation journal, making this huge bubble was her favorite thing from the day. Liana went first, and she did a great job making her bubble.

After Marah, it was Lily's turn. Before we left, she had to go back and try this experiment again.

The girls really enjoyed spending the day together!

First Day at the Beach

Lily absolutely adored the beach. She loved everything about the sand, the water, and especially-- the seashells. She never complained one time about wanting to leave.

She even loved the ocean water, and she enjoyed splashing in the waves as they came upon the shore. But, most of all, she loved playing with her friends- Liana and Marah.

Marah loved collecting seashells, too, and she also loved jumping into the ocean over and over and over again. She was so much fun to watch. She also learned how to surf on a boogie board.

Liana was a big sister to both girls the whole week. She took care of them, and she made sure they were going where they were supposed to go. She gave up many turns on her board each day to let the girls play instead.

Last night, while we were watching HGTV, a family was discussing going on vacation to Hawaii. Lily immediately said that she wanted to go to that beach. Then, she said, "But would we be going on vacation all by ourselves to Hawaii?" We said, "Well probably." She said, "Oh, well, then never mind. I only want to go on vacation with Beth and David's family."

Vacation.... in Savannah!

We had a wonderful time in Savannah. Our trip started there, and after three days, we went to Myrtle Beach with Beth, David, Liana, and Marah. So, Myrtle Beach pictures will be coming this week.

These are some pictures in our favorite restaurant- Belford's. They had the most delicious food!

Lily went on her first carriage ride throughout the city. It was a 55 minute historical tour, and she did great. She loved riding with the horses.

Here she is listening intently to the stories that the lady told us.

We also loved staying at The Bohemian Hotel. It was quite fantastic and beautiful! Come back tomorrow for the first of many pictures of the girls together at the beach.

Lily in Kindergarten (with the smile!)

Lily's Aunt Ella visited her at school today during her Kindergarten class. She took some pictures of her while she was working. I love this picture because she has her "school smile" on!

She truly loves LOVES LOVES school! Every day, I hear "Do I get to go to school today?" Thank you Ruella for taking these pictures! I love them!

Lily's Birthday (Finally!)

Sorry it has taken so long to post these... We have been super busy with my new room at school! The first few pictures were from the Aquarium. Lily loved being there!

She loved the Butterflies!

And the penguins!

She also enjoyed getting in the shark cage...

and seeing the big spider crab!

Then, later that evening, she wanted Aunt Trina and Aunt Ella to come over for her birthday.

She opened up lots of presents.

She loved getting her new Taylor Swift CD.

She loved her new Disney Princesses! And Sushi had a lot of fun, too!
