1st trip to the movies

We took Sophie to see her first movie at the movie theatre. During the summer our town has a free children's movie festival every Tuesday and Wednesday morning. We saw the Bee movie and it was really cute. Sophie's first reaction when the movie started was "wow" and "ooh wow". We took her car seat in so she had a nice comfortable seat. This was the best idea ever because she sat in one spot and was not trying to climb down every 5 minutes. Now that we know she does well in the movie theatre we can go more often!

Picking Blueberries

We went to pick blueberries today at Lyrene's Flower Farm. Sophie was a big helper. She liked playing with the blueberries (she smashed a few into blueberry juice) and carrying the bucket! We picked 2lbs of blueberries, so we have alot of blueberries to eat. I told Sophie that we would make blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Jason wants me to make a blueberry cobbler. Maybe I'll be Betty Crocker and surprise him with my blueberry recipe skills.

Father's Day Weekend

We traveled to Monroe on Father's Day. We celebrated Father's Day and Jason and Rachel's birthdays with a crawfish boil. We had a lot of fun. It has been a while since we have been to a crawfish boil. Grammy had a big surprise for Sophie. NEW SHOES!!! Sophie is obsessed with shoes, so Grammy gave her some fancy high heels that she wears everywhere! Grampy tried to turn Sophie into a country girl. She helped him pick green beans, but she wouldn't eat any of them. We'll have to keep working on that. As always our trips home are over too quick and it was time to return home before we knew it.

Sophie is almost two!

Time has flown by. It seems like it was just yesterday we were bringing home a new baby and now we don't have a baby anymore. She is a big girl now, or so she thinks. We are getting ready for her second birthday. We went to the beach a couple of weeks ago to take pictures for her birthday thank you notes. That was really fun, but very difficult to get good pictures. She didn't want to stop and pose for any of them. I think that Jason had to take about 60 pictures to get 20 decent ones!
