Shorts, floaties, fireflies, fun times…

I am going to make this narrative short since there are many pictures to post and only a short amount of time before I fall asleep.  Just want to say that we love you and miss you mommy.  We can’t wait to see you on Wednesday. 110.jpg210.jpg32.jpgHere are a few pictures of Ella helping grandma get ready in the morning and grandma putting a little lipstick on Ella.

41.jpg Ella actually left the house on Wednesday wearing a t-shirt and shorts.  She looked really cute.

52.jpg62.jpg72.jpgSo the turtle was really cool looking, but it was too big for Ella and became extremely frustrating for her so I gave it to a nice mom at the pool.  The last picture is actually of Ella having fun with some of the friendlier kids at the kiddie pool.

102.jpg112.jpg122.jpgToday (Thursday) I took Ella to a concert in Riverside Park on Pier 1. It was a performance of children’s music and the performer was an old friend of mine from graduate school.  Jeffrey now has a band called “The Bossy Frog” and he is pretty popular in the tri-state area.  Ella had a lot of fun dancing to the music.

132.jpg142.jpgJeffrey gave Ella a hat, a shirt and 2 cd’s.  Here is Ella in her bossy frog hat.  I think the hat is kind of fitting for Ella sometimes!

152.jpg After the show we drove downtown and met up with AJ.  Here is Ella having some ice cream and hanging with AJ.

162.jpg Ella relaxing and playing concentration.

172.jpg Michael and Ella fell asleep on the way to NJ.

231.jpg Here is Ella’s new floatie…she loves her walrus that she named Stella.  We’ll see how it goes in the pool tomorrow.
