Prayers of patience would be much appreciated today (especially by my kids), because I am not sure they will survive the day without some divine intervention.

We headed into St. Augustine this past weekend for some get togethers that were going on. Our first stop was at my Nana's for my Dad's 50th birthday. It was just a small dinner (Dad's not a huge fan of birthdays). I had made some new skirts for the girls earlier in the week, so I had them wear them. They were so cute! Lily's is kinda from this tutorial and Ava's is from this one. There will definitely be more skirts popping up sometime soon. They were so fun to make and looked so cute!
Lily always insists on being barefoot when we're at Nana's. I think it is because I can't let her do it here because we have so many sand spurs here. It always makes for some lovely feet, though!
A couple of weeks ago, I won a GC to Posh Toppings. I got this adorable little hat and some flowers that clip onto it. Well, Lily saw the flowers and had toa have all 5 of them on the hat and she had to wear it out to Publix! It is so cute, though! I can't wait till the fallw hen it will be cool enough for her to wear it! I think I am goign to have to find some little head bands I can clip those flowers on, though, for the summer. Oh, and sorry for the goof-ball pictures, she would not just look at me and smile! I think the sun was bothering her...
Lily won the Cookie Club thing from Publix. She got a free 10 inch cookie with her name on it! So cool. We have put cards in a couple of times for it, but I was not sure they ever really did it and last week, we got a call saying Lily won, so we picked it up yesterday! Here is the only picture I got of it (I wasn't quick enough to get a picture before they started devouring it)!

It was really an awesome performance! I think the kids may have been a bit young for it still (they're three), and the bleacher seating was not the most comfortable (although, it was nice and close), but the show was amazing. There was a bit of "adult" humor that, had the girls been a little older, I would have been more concerned about. The whole show was in French which I didn't realize until Kim told me she had checked out the website (but duh, right?). They did not allow cameras in the show, so check out the Saltimbanco site for some pictures of the acts (you can also watch a trailer on the site that will give you an idea of some of the performances). Also, here is some info about the show and the meaning of the title from the Saltimbanco site.
About the Show:
" Saltimbanco -from the Italian "saltare in banco", which literally means "to jump on a bench"-explores the urban experience in all its myriad forms: the people who live there, their idiosyncrasies and likenesses, families and groups, the hustle and bustle of the street and the towering heights of skyscrapers. Between whirlwind and lull, prowess and poetry, Saltimbanco takes spectators on an allegorical and acrobatic journey into the heart of the city.
Saltimbanco is a Cirque du Soleil signature show inspired by the urban fabric of the metropolis and its colorful inhabitants. Decidedly baroque in its visual vocabulary, the show's eclectic cast of characters draws spectators into a fanciful, dreamlike world, an imaginary city where diversity is a cause for hope."
There was beautiful singing, fun dancing, and incredible acrobatics. The costumes were bright and just a lot of fun. Everyone involved in the show seemed to really enjoy what they were doing and they tried to include the audience as much as they could. One poor gentleman got called on stage to participate in a 5 minute long mime skit. He was a great sport about it and the audience thought it was hilarious. We had a blast (well, Kim and I did)! I would definitely recommend heading to check this out, but maybe leave the little ones at home!
I'd like to thank MomSelect for the opportunity for this great review!

I really love it when my mom gets me some games and my movie comes on. (???)
My mom likes to wear clothes.
My mom always tells me, “No, no. and to say 'Yes, Mommy.'"(Niiiiice)
The best thing she does is give me some ice cream.
It makes her happy when when I be a good girl. (Can you tell what we've been talking A LOT about lately?)
My mom loves to relax by by getting hugs.
I like it when she plays.
The best thing she cooks is pizza. (Funny, because this actually the thing that Daddy, always cooks.)
When my mom shops she likes to buy clothes. (Um, for her, maybe.)
My mom’s favorite household chore is cleaning up.
My mom’s favorite TV show is Mommy shows.
If she could go on a trip, she would go to Africa.
I love my mom because I love you.

I couldn't keep the whole long piece of paper, so I took pictures of some of my favorite spots...mostly, little hands and feet...
We also made our first trip to the pool today. Lily has decided she is going to learn how to swim this summer (which sounds great, because I have decided I am going to get a tan this summer). So, we went to the pool and Lily loved it. She had a blast, swallowed lots of water...Ava on the other hand...hated it. And, I mean hated it! It took me like 15 minutes just to get her in the water and in her float. Then, she spent the whole rest of the time we were there saying, "No. Done. Now." Yeah, she's not much of a little water baby. We will also have to work on that this summer :)
