Georgia girl!

Abigail and I went to visit my grandparents in Georgia this week while Joe is in Prague on vacation (yes he went without me! I couldn't leave Abigail for an entire week!). Abigail's been a little tornado around my grandparent's house so we've found things to do to help her use her energy in a productive way :)
Behind Grandma and Grandpa's house there's a cow pasture...this cow came right up to us!

I took Abigail to the beach in the mountains for a little while and she loved it! Kept wanting to drink the dirty, muddy water! Look at the mountains in the background! Such a beautiful place to play in the water!

"Ohhh cold!"

She loved putting handfuls of sand into my bag!

The beach also had a great playground too. Abigail loved the slides and stairs and riding all the little animals they had there. Here's a video of her going down the slide (press play)

Every Tuesday, Abigail and I have a standing lunch date with our friends Lisha and Esme Rose. We always meet at our favorite Mexican restaurant! Not only is it great food but the service there is excellent and they basically let us take over the place with the kids! We let the girls eat lunch and then 'set them free' while we get to eat ours! It's seriously the perfect set up!

Abigail and Lorena have hit it off from day 1!

They put her on a higher level than anyone else there ;)

No lack of attention for either Abby or Esme!

Abigail loves loves loves being one of the big kids! She follows them around everywhere and tries to keep up! These adorable blondies are my friend Catherine's niece and nephew who are visiting from Nebraska. The little toehead, Andrew just fell in love with Abigail and they both couldn't believe how soft and little she was :)

Summer days!

Our pastor's wife, Flora made Abigail this sweet little top so I had to get some pictures of her in it! So cute and girly!

Later that night we had some watermelon! She loves that stuff and kept trying to feed it to daddy!

I think this is my favorite picture ever of the two of them just laughing!

Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is a big celebration here in Hartsville. The Chamber of Commerce teams up with our church to host the huge city-wide celebration with food vendors, product vendors and all kinds of entertainment! We missed it last year due to Abigail being too young but this year she was up and ready to go! The fireworks didn't seem to faze her at all, she was too busy digging into an icee and an elephant ear ;)
Of course we have the mandatory Abby-Kyler photos :) They just adore each other!

Our church is starting up a local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) chapter so we had a booth to promote the group. I didn't have a free hand so I tied Abby to the tent so I could help clean up without running after her the entire time!

She had just enough free reign that she was able to play with the boys!
