We are just tickled pink to hang out with Catherine and baby Hannah (who is SO cute and so tiny I just can’t help but grin when I look at her). Adorableness.
Ro and Ree are taking their roles as big-girl helpers quite seriously. Ree, in particular, holds Hannah’s hands everywhere she goes, steers her away from “sharp corners” and brings all sorts of toys and fun lovelies for Hannah to enjoy. Makes us all giggle.
There was a little snafu with the flights yesterday, and poor Catherine and Hannah were routed all over the dang place. They finally arrived late at night (one smiling and one snoozing), and we all breathed a sigh of relief. I love little Hannah’s Canadian maple shoes that were peeking out in honor of Canada Day.
This morning we all hung out in jammies, and Ro and Ree showed Hannah how to make and decorate cupcakes on their beloved iPad. Hannah banana fits right in. So does Catherine, for that matter. You know you’re in the presence of a dear friend when you walk around all morning in PJs with no bra, no makeup, and no shower, and don’t even give it a second thought:
Then we whiled away a few cool, refreshing hours at the pool (Ro and Ree are seriously swimming like fish at this point, check out this video I took at their swim lesson yesterday).
Someone was lulled to sleep by the peaceful waters. Awwwww.:
And two other someones swam so much that they needed a second breakfast:
Good times. Now we’ve all showered and gotten dressed and are starting to think about decorating for the little family graduation party we’re having tonight. Ro and Ree are excited, and so are we. I’ll probably have one or two more pictures to post later from the party, and maybe even a video since TubaDad is going to play pomp and circumstance on the tuba while the girls march around in their mini caps and gowns. Hee!
