She would do this all day long if she could.

Laura wanted some lemon water ice tonight and I pulled out some blue tortilla chips for a snack.  She thought it would be yummy together.   Uh, ick?

Going to work with Mommy

Laura had to go to work with me on Friday because her preschool was closed.  Doesn't she looked thrilled and still half asleep with her bedhead?  I only worked half a day at the downtown office so everyone helped to keep her busy while I worked.
Post Office Square

After work, we walked down to Faneuil Hall and watched some street shows.

Then we had lunch at Quincy Market.

Laura had her graduation today for Kindergarten 1.  Here she is with her friend, Lilah.  They will be going to the same school next year for K- 2.

This is Rory and Adriana.  Laura has a love/hate relationship with Rory.  They are either hugging and playing together or viciously fighting like cats and dogs.  
The Kindergartners wore blue hats.  Preschoolers wore red.

Thomas will be going to K-2 with Laura next year as well.  Oooh boy.

Start humming the song: Dah da da da daaa daaaa.  It's funny because at home, Laura was humming the wedding march.

Thomas and Laura held hands down the aisle.  Awwww.

They sang a song for the parents.
Thomas RAN to get his diploma.
Laura just sauntered over like a clown.
Speaking of clowns, Violet the clown showed up.  Laura told me that "Violent" the clown was going to be at graduation but she wasn't scared of her anymore.  Oh, my little girl is growing up so fast.

Phillies vs. Red Sox

Laura, her dad and I drove down to Philly on Friday.  It took about 8 hours and she was a trooper in the car but right before the George Washington Bridge, she vomited all over herself. Poor little girl.  It was not a good car ride.
Saturday, we all went to Geno's for cheesesteak just before the game.  I'm embarrassed that it was the first time that I tried Geno's (I haven't tried Pat's either).  It was fair in terms of cheesesteaks.  I didn't get the hype.
Laura's dad got us some great seats along the first base line. 
Yes, Ymo is wearing a Met's cap.
There was a rain delay so we went down to the field for some pictures.
It ended up being a nice night but Hah dah buh gee was not happy that the Phillies lost.  Sorry daddy.

Playing with my camera

I'm sloooooowwwwly  learning how to use some of the settings on my camera and playing with the Aperture.

Here's a pretty teapot music box that someone gave me.  I put it in Laura's room because it's so cute.

Here is the sunflower seed that we planted on Sunday!  Laura was so excited when she saw it and ran out of the room screaming "IT'S GROWING!".

We all went to the Chestnut Hill Mall today to look for glasses for Laura's dad.  Laura had to try out some frames, of course.
I like the red ones!
There was some horticulture event happening on at the mall with different landscapers and the 4 H club brought cute soft bunnies.  They were really cute and Laura got to pet this little guy.  

Laura also got to plant a sunflower and brought it home.
Then we all went out for some ice cream.  Laura's new favorite flavor is fat free black raspberry yogurt.  No lie.  This is the 3rd time in a row that she has asked for this flavor. 
At 3pm, we went to Rayan's birthday party at his home.  They rented a Moonbounce and the slide!  I was so excited, I mean, Laura was really excited.  The kids went wild (I got to play on this too, heehee).

The boys found a snake in the back yard and killed it.  Poor snake.  The kids were all fascinated by it.   Laura felt bad for it.  How much do you love Vivica's (girl on the right side) expression?

This is Rayan's cake with an adorable alligator.
Rayan's got a flameless candle so his dad lit a match for him to blow out.
I don't know when kids stop getting excited by bubbles.  The all went crazy.  Look at them!
Laura had a blast.  There were a ton of kids at this party and the Moonbounce was genius.  The kids played on this nonstop and then were completely wiped out by the end of the party.

Wild turkeys!

How crazy is this?!  We came out of the house this morning to be greeted by 2 pairs of wild turkeys.  The males weren't too happy with us.
