Party, Picnic, Princesses and Ponies

Kind of a random title I know but it is the best way to describe our last weekend. I don't want to jinx anything, but I think fall has finally come to Texas and I couldn't be happier!!! We had a great weekend just hanging out as a family. Brian had been gone for a few days for work so on Saturday he gave me a nice break and let me have a few hours "off." The weather was gorgeous so he took the girls to the park and they had a picnic lunch and played and played. I think they were really happy to spend some time with daddy and mommy was thankful to have a nice break :)

Saturday evening we went to a birthday party for one of our friends. It was a Toy Story party complete with a real Buzz and Woody. The girls had a great time with all their friends. There was a magic show, face painting, and balloon animals.

Can you tell how much Brooklyn enjoyed the cake?

The girls are really into princesses and ponies right now. They love to dress up and play princesses and one of their favorite toys is a horse camper and little horse figurines. I decided that they really needed some princess dresses after they kept going in my closet and putting on my shirts to "dress up" like princesses. They have lots of tutus and dress up shoes and crowns but now they have real, official princess dresses too! They spent a lot of time playing in them this weekend.

Caitlyn was a little unhappy she didn't get to be Cinderella first

Much Better!

Sunday afternoon, we took the girls out to a local equestrian center to let them see the horses and scope it out as a possible place to have their birthday party. December birthdays are so hard to plan because you NEVER know what the weather will be like! The owner was so nice....he let the girls feed the horses, ride them, walk them and run around and get nice and dirty. They had a ball! I think we found the perfect place for their "princess pony party!" Stay tuned....
