Brad went out of town Tuesday for work (he left us for a fancy historic hotel on the beach in St. Petersburg, Fl), so instead of moping around all week, we decided to head north and visit the fam. While we're here I decided to take advantage of a kids' salon in Fayetteville called Pigtails and Crewcuts. They have fun chairs for the kids to sit in, and Tangled was playing on the tv's, so Mary Ella had NO problem with it!
Here is a before picture. I hated to lose any of her length, but her ends needed a pretty good trim.
It was a wonderful first haircut experience, and the cut is oh so cute!
Yesterday we went to the Science Museum for a little preschool "camp." It's only for a few Monday's in June, and it's free so I thought we would try it. Mary Ella enjoyed playing in the preschool room and listening to the stories. She sat in my lap, listened to the director, and even laughed at her corny jokes. ;) The hour was all about alligators. We went on an alligator hunt through the museum, did an art project, and she even got to touch a baby alligator!
A little finger painting?
Um, this is how I feel about finger painting
She had a great time! It was extra fun to spend the hour with our friend Cullen!
Mary Ella knew yesterday was the first day of summer vacation...she slept until 10:00! Ha! Really she was just worn out from the weekend, but Mama didn't mind sleeping in too! We also went to the pool and had a picnic lunch.
All she wanted to do was go back and forth between the big pool and the kiddie pool. I ended up just staying in the big pool and waiting for her to come jump in and climb out all over again.
Everyone is hungry after swim time! I'm going to love these summer days!
