It was Granddaddy's Birthday!!!
We celebrated by having diner and 
cake at Gigi and Granddaddy's.

Granddaddy ALWAYS has a 
coca-cola cake for his birthday cake.
It is so yummy!

 Of course, Ella Rae got to help blow out the candles!

Happy Birthday Granddaddy!
We love you so much!

drippy castles, icecream and the crib

 Even though it was his weekend off, 
Kelly had to work on Saturday. 
Major Boo!
But Gigi, Granddaddy and I took Ella Rae to the 
beach that morning to make up for it.

 As you can see, the beach was practically empty! 
Ella Rae enjoyed having the freedom to roam around.

She also loved learning how to make drippy castles with Granddaddy. 

Stopping for a quick picture with mommy and new baby sister.

Later that night (after the Gamecocks won!!) 
we met at a cute new little ice cream shop
in the promenade for a special treat!
 Ella Rae got her very own mini ice cream cone!
She LOVED it!

Of course, she wanted more when she was finished
with her own cone so she snuck a lick of Gigi's haha!

Here's a cute picture of Ella Rae on the way to school one morning.
She was excited, obviously!

Here's a belly picture for 26 weeks! 

And being that we are 26 weeks and counting 
I have felt the pressure to get the nursery ready! 
Here is a sneak peek of the crib. 
Thanks to my hubby for putting it together
on his only day off in 25 days!!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

 Reading in the car

 Looking so big and cute walking into school with her backpack

 Snacking on some watermelon

Excited to be taking her new lunch box to school

Having lunch at school for the first time with her friend Sam
Swinging fun at the park

The sweet little baby is about the
size of a cantaloupe-
I will try to get a good belly picture

Happy Labor Day Weekend Everyone!
