Saturday was their 3rd birthday party so Grant and I took a day trip to Austin to celebrate with the little monkeys. It was a beautiful drive.
The only sad part was we were the first car on the scene of a horrible accident. Grant and others helped drag this poor guy out of his truck which had flipped multiple times. There wasn't much of an arm left on the guy and Grant is thinking he probably didn't make it. It kinda put a damper on the rest of the trip. Thankfully, we knew we were going to a very happy place and had to just pray for the man and thank God for His safety that He provides!
The twins really enjoy gymnastics. They go once a week (they call it "My nastics" and seem to really be getting the hang of things! So, they had a gymnastics party and all their little friends from school came.
Here they are in the group circle doing their stretches before hand.
Juliet doing a butterfly stretch with her best friend from school.
Look at our big girl!
Scarlett is really good at these kicks.
This is Jules and her friend Sage, just hanging out.
Parker was there and y'all OH MY GOSH. The child did not stop. She has NO fear and almost exploded with joy!
The teacher had them all lay on this big mat that slowly filled up with air. They squealed the whole time!
Now RUN!! I think Scarlett just took those boys OUT!
Parker, otherwise known as the great blur. This was the best shot I could get of her most of the day. Joyful, much?
My sincere apologies to my dad (Pops) for not getting a shot of the 2 three-tiered cakes he made for his granddaughters. I did get a video of everyone singing happy birthday but this is a new camera and I can't figure out how to upload the video to the computer! I will figure it out soon and post the video later this week so you all can see my dad's beautiful cakes!
I love this one.
After the birthday party ended, we headed back to Shannon and Jason's house to give the girls their birthday presents. They were pretty excited!
This one was excited too!
So the girls are really into dress-up clothes right now, so my mom bought them each a beautiful costume that they just loved. Scarlett was Minnie Mouse and Juliet was Wendy from Peter Pan. (They LOVE Peter Pan)
Here is Juliet becoming Wendy. She was very serious about the whole thing.
