Audrey's 1st Day of School

Today we are so excited to celebrate Audrey's first official day of school starting pre-k 3 at fishing cove elementary. We picked out a special outfit, had a healthy breakfast, and ventured off this morning at 8:30am. 

As soon as we got to school we were met by Annabel and Kylee. Sierra's schoolmate for running and playing before the teachers came out to greet the children. Audrey announced, "This is my first day of school!" To everyone she met including her teacher, Miss Becca.





Below are a few of the happy pictures before the crying ensued. It broke my heart to leave her crying in miss becca's arms, but best for audrey to acclimate...
Oh the joys of parenting!

Washington County Fair

Today we ventured to the Washington County Fair. Complete with BBQ, fried everything and cotton candy, the fair had live country music, farm animals, along with carnival rides and games! 
 
The girls posed by Penny, one of the largest pigs I've ever seen who won the blue ribbon for best presentation.
Below the country western singer, Weston Burt, sang at noon center stage!
 
Sierra enjoyed exploring the military tanks and posing for photos.
  
She was thrilled to have her first roller coaster ride with her daddy- a crazy caterpillar ride!
 
And the fair just wouldn't be complete with out tractor pulls, a lawnmower race, STM wrestling, pie eating and watermelon seed spitting contests!
Happy Sunday everyone!

With the day off for VJ Day, the girls and I headed to town beach. It was fun collecting shells, and rocks and floating on our boogie board. After the beach, we headed to the swings on the playground and then home!

A Day of Kayaking Fun!

For Victor's birthday weekend, we took a tour of Wickford bay by kayaks. It was a great day if sun, fun and exercise. Sierra rode with Victor, while Audrey rode with me. The day was perfect and the girls had a wonderful time. We saw the end-o-main house, glass beach, the harbor, Margo's house, and a lot more of the pristine side of Rhode Island.







Happy Birthday Victor!

For Victor's birthday, the girls made special cards for their daddy, bought a cake and flowers, and we had dinner at a fun outdoor restaurant called Chelo's waterside. 


 




Sierra's 1st tooth is falling out...

It's her bottom front incisor. It was bleeding this morning and Sierra got scared and told us about it. She's growing up fast!

Audrey's New Desk

This past week, we painted an old desk and chair so Audrey could have a place to study or read in her room.   It looks like she likes it!

 
She's our little cutie-pie!
