Our Trip North

We just got back from the best trip ever!  Mommy and Daddy took us to Traverse City and to see the Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Before we left, Mommy read three really great stories to Evie and me:

We were both very excited to see the places in the books.  When we arrived, we stayed at Great Wolf Lodge - it has a water park and this really cool game called MagiQuest.  Here are some pictures from the hotel.

Little Evie enjoying the bunk bed in our little cabin

Yes!  There was a cabin IN the hotel room!

We loved this silly old bear chair.

So much FUN!

The water park was amazing!

Here I am sliding down the yellow slide!

Evie couldn't get enough of these slides!

Here we are in the "Big" pool.
Evie and Violet (one of the cast of characters ) at the lodge.

Evie coloring a picture of Violet - she spent a VERY long time on this.
Howling to the moon - another picture of the cabin.
We also went to the Sleeping Bear dunes, and had a wonderful time climbing the mountains.  Evie was determined to uncover the Mommy Bear, but I was thrilled to just be able to see the Baby Bears in the distance.

It was a VERY windy day!

Evie was happy to pose here - not me.

Running up the dunes with Daddy.

I loved this spot.

I got a Library Card!

After begging Mommy over the last few months, I finally got my first library card.  Mommy said that the library does not have "rules" about how old a child needs to be, but that she has her own rules.  She said they are:

You must be 7 years old.
You must be able to read well.
You must be able to print name in the small space for the card.

And so, here I am with my card! Hooray!

Ears Pierced

We got our ears pierced.  Mommy was so very proud of us, especially me.  I overcame my fear of the initial pain, and was able to make this goal happen.  After Evie had hers pierced she was overheard saying, "My dream finally came true!"

Summer Fun

This week Evie and I were in VBS.  We spent last week running to different appointments for wellness check-ups and all that good stuff.  So finally, this afternoon, Mommy said we are in official SUMMER mode.  Only problem?  The clouds are making the temperatures not very hot.  But we don't care!

Here is a fun picture Mommy made of us today!

Dance Recital

Mommy wanted to post a video of my dance recital rehearsal.  I am the girl who mainly stays in the front and middle!

2nd Grader and Orange Belt

Yesterday was my last day of 1st Grade.  On awards day I got a bunch of awards.  My fruit of the spirit is JOY, I got perfect attendance and I never received a homework card nor behavior card.  I also went from Yellow belt to Orange belt yesterday with my best friend, Shelby!  I also got a trophy for Best In Test.  I even beat out the big kids in class!

Between the three parties yesterday and two more today, my Mommy is definitely tired.  But I just say - BRING ON THE SUMMER!

Zoe's Poetry Slam

Even though I was very nervous, I made it through my little poem at today's 1st & 2nd Graders Poetry Slam.

Here is a picture my Mommy took of my with my mirror prop.

Here is a picture of the cast of characters and the poems that were performed.

Here is a video of my performance.  The sound is pretty soft - hopefully you can hear me:

Happy Preschool Graduation, Eva!

Evie graduated from Preschool today! Although she shed a few tears after the ceremony, she was very happy Mommy took her home from school early.

Time Off of School

This week Evie and I had time off from school.  We spent a lot of time having fun.  Mommy (and Daddy) kept us as busy as possible, because neither enjoyed the fighting when we got bored.

Here are pictures from the busy week.  They are only a small example of all the fun we had.

I took a turn.  The Lorax in 3D was awesome!
We had a blast at the new DRIVE AMERICA exhibit at The Henry Ford

Like our skirts and shirts?  Mommy's friend at Enchanted Schoolhouse made them!
The following are pics from our visit to the African Wildlife Safari!  It was our second trip - first one was two years ago: see here CLICK
