Cruisin' Around Town!

Last Saturday was Caroline's 2nd birthday! I can't believe she is already two years old! Went down Saturday afternoon for the party and planned on staying the night. Eric got a new 3D TV so wanted us all to have a sleepover/movie night. I have to say, it's a pretty amazing TV! The party was fabulous! It was a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom theme and the kids had a blast! They even got to do a little crafting!

Crafting! Making a magnet and a door hanger!

The Birthday Girl!

The party wore these girls out! Just chilling on the couch.

Movie time!

The next morning, we got the girls outside to take a ride in the Jeep. Caroline is quiet the little driver! I was a little nervous that Gracyn would be scared to ride in it, but I was so wrong! She loved it and had so much fun!

This is my favorite! Such big girls!

My Little Gymnast!

Today was the first day of something I hope Gracyn will enjoy and stick with...gymnastics! I took it when I was about five and again when I was in 7th grade. It's something I always wish I had stuck with. Not saying I would have been good, but I love it. I'm hoping Gracyn will to. If not, we will try something else. I do already have a pink/purple softball glove picked out! : )

Anyway, we arrived this morning and started off with circle time. All the little tots stand on a carpet square and did some stretches. Gracyn just didn't know what to think. She just stood there. Then, she noticed a slide over in the corner. She ran over to it, and I chased her down and brought her back to her square. This happened several times til she started throwing a fit. Then all the kids came over to where the slide was so we could do rotations. Graycn's first rotation was the slide. All was good. Next, we moved to the trampoline. I figured she would want to do that but all she wanted was to slide. Eventually, we moved over to the floor to do somersaults and some other things. She did do a couple somersaults, but then ran back to the slide! Then we moved to the balance beam. She did really well the first time around, but the second time was questionable. The last thing we did was on the opposite side of the gym. The kids would jump into the big foam pool. I have no idea what this thing is called, but Gracyn loved it. Then we all went back to the floor to do circle time again. Gracyn behaved very well for this and didn't even look at the slide!

The instructor told me it would be a couple of weeks before she got the hang of what we do at each rotation. I sure hope so! I was exhausted chasing her around the whole time!
