Playing at the Pool...

During our Florida stay we booked a hotel close to the surgical center in Orlando. On Saturday, the day after Victor's operation, we enjoyed a casual day at the pool...jumping, diving, swimming, and goofing off.

Take a peek at Sierra and my afternoon pool fun...

Sierra Visits the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique!

Our darling Sierra dreams of becoming a real princess, so during our trip to Florida we treated her to a visit to the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique at Disney! She was so happy & chose Rapunzel as the theme for her Princess makeover.
Sierra's hairdresser, Cherrise, was wonderful! Sierra chose her own hairstyle, makeup colors and nail polish colors. She also picked out her princess dress, crown, wand and slippers!
Having all the attention on her made Sierra smile. When she was done, she looked beautiful and felt just like a real princess.
When we left the boutique, Sierra walked outside and started dancing in the street, twirling her dress and dancing to the music in her heart. I love seeing her so happy!

After the Princess makeover, Sierra had her very own photoshoot!
She was the focus of all attention and looked so proud!
We bought 3 poses from her photoshoot! Take a peek at the final transformation...

Sierra, we hope you had a wonderful day. Your daddy and I love you with all our hearts and hope you always feel like the princess we know you are!

Our Dancing Princess...

This video was taken right after Sierra was dressed up as a Princess. She was so happy to be Rapunzel, she did a happy dance just outside the studio...

The Wonderful Grand Cypress Pool...

While visiting Orlando, Sierra insisted we go to the Grand Cypress pool! Her last experience in Orlando was swimming, splashing and sliding at the pool, so we thought we'd treat her to a day trip while Victor was visiting his doctors. Gigi took care of Audrey so Sierra and I ventured across town to slide down the wonderful slides and swim all day long. It was a wonderful girls afternoon out! Take a peek at our fun...We played in the sand, had lunch in a cave, swam in the pool and slid down the slide all day long!

Audrey loved Gigi's piano and couldn't stop playing on it! She's our little musical prodigy!
Sierra loved sitting with Gigi reading and exploring her house.
It feels good to be home!

Home Sweet Home

Arriving in Florida felt so natural...We were home again. And, upon seeing my Mother, I felt happy and grateful that she would finally see Audrey and get to know her wonderful, cute personality!Audrey liked my Mom from the start and we smothered her in kisses upon seeing Gigi!
Our trip home will last about 10 days and we've got plans to visit Universal Studios, the Splash Pad, and Disney, while Victor visits doctors and hopefully arranges a surgical date for his hernia.
In the middle of our trip, Victor and I are planning a mini-getaway to the Portofino Hotel at Universal Studios to see the theme park and relax without the girls. My mom graciously accepted to care for them while we play! Thanks Mom!

Sierra & Audrey Say Packing is a Breeze!

Tomorrow we're departing for Florida and the girls are so excited. Sierra started packing and threw all her dresser clothes into a suitcase and zipped it up. Next she grabbed all her babies and packed them in another suitcase and said she was ready to go! Audrey had a different kind of packing in mind...she climbed in and took a nap! I wish it were that easy to pack for a trip! I should take some lessons from the girls.

We'll see you soon Gigi!

Having Fun at Babies-R-Us...

Sometimes the best fun is free... This past weekend, we were shopping for diapers and new sippy cups for Audrey. Along the way, the girls found cool toys to play with. Check out our fun... Audrey loved riding the tricycle. She watches Sierra and then does it herself...
Sierra found 2 red balloons and an Olivia backpack and rode around the store on her little tricycle...what fun!
Audrey was really getting into her riding...notice her intensity! Sierra & Audrey, we love you both! Thank you for a fun afternoon at Babies-R-Us!

Splish, Splash, Splosh!

Audrey is so curious of the things Sierra can do. And, today Audrey wanted to brush her teeth by herself! Take a peek at all the fun Audrey and her big sister had brushing their teeth and sharing the bathroom step...Sierra's teeth are super clean now!
Audrey's teeth were clean about 5 minutes ago, but she loves to feel the bristles on her teeth and taste the cold water...
Brushing teeth turned into sink shower fun!
The girls were soaked after about 10 minutes of splish, splash, and sploshing!
Seeing Audrey and Sierra laughing so hard was hilarious and amazing! Who knew brushing teeth could be so much fun?!

Happy Birthday Gigi!

In honor of my dear Mother's birthday today, Sierra requested a cake! So, Daddy created the most decadent chocolate cake with fresh strawberries!

We sang to Gigi and Sierra blew out the candles in her honor! Our only mistake was serving it for dessert at 6:00pm. The girls were sugar wired before bed!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! We love you and miss you. Sierra hopes you like what she sent you in the mail.
