Play Date

Nick and Cali had a play date this week with Michael and Landon.  The four of them went to the Greensboro Children's museum.  The girls had a great time playing with all the different areas.   They loved the kitchen area and the mail room.

Cali loves to sit in chairs so this was perfect to her!


Landon and Cali walking hand in hand through the museum.  Adorable!

Nana's Birthday

Today we celebrated my mom's birthday at my sister's house.  It was loads of fun!  Cali had a great time playing with her cousins.

The kids enjoying lunch.  Notice Cali stealing a chip off my plate!

The girls playing while Nana opens her presents.

Cousins Dave and Cher joined in the party fun!

Nana and Cali - it was nap time.  Can you tell?
 After presents, cake and a nap we headed outside to play.  Mary's house has a great play set for the kids.  
Kimmie and Cali swinging together.

Off for a walk!  

It was a great time to catch up and play together.  Birthdays are so much fun and are a good excuse to get together.

Trip to Atlanta

Nick had a conference in Atlanta so we all packed up and headed down for the weekend.  We went down Friday and returned Sunday.  Cali did great on the 7 hour road trip both ways.
She survived by playing with the iPad and watching movies.

Saturday while Nick was in meetings Cali and I headed downtown to visit the Georgia Aquarium.
Cali loved to look at the fish!
Cali also loved to watch the penguins!  She sat and watched them for a long time.

Cali loved to look up at the fish in the tunnel.



We meet up with Nick and spent the afternoon playing at the hotel.  Sunday I was able to attend North Point Community Church - AMAZING!  Then we packed up and headed home so Nick would make youth.

It was a fast trip but lots of good family time.

Cousins

Over the weekend we celebrated Nick's brothers birthday.  This meant fun COUSIN TIME!!


Cali wanted to sit with Leigha and Uncle Andy while we waited for our food.  They wanted to do everything the other was doing.

*Fun Story*
We ate at a steakhouse that has the waitresses dance to certain songs.  Uncle Andy took the girls to see the dancers.  Cali did not just want to watch she wanted to dance too!  She ran right up to our waitress (who she just met) and wanted to be picked up.  Our waitress danced to the whole song with Cali in her arms. It was precious!

Then at Target they had to share a buggy!  It was adorable!  Leigha read Cali Sesame Street books while we shopped.

Cali's First Two Years


video

Here is a video of photos showing Cali each month!  It is so much fun to see how much she has grown and changed.  Some months there were big changes others only small ones.

You've come a long way baby!

Cali's Cookin'

For Cali's 2nd Birthday we got her a kitchen.  It didn't come in until Monday, so last night was the big unveiling.  She LOVED it!  As soon as she saw it she ran to it and started opening and closing the doors.


Chief Cali

We even asked some of the guests for her birthday party to get her kitchen accessory items.


She keeps saying "cook".  She likes to make the meal, set her table and wash the dishes.  It is so funny how she picks up on everything.
