Gigi Time!

According to my mom, Gigi, there are not nearly enough posts about her on here. It is my fault, I just never think to grab my camera when they are around….mostly because it seems like they are ALWAYS around! (joke Mom!)

Shopping with Gigi is no unusual thing….over the summer we have made several shopping excursions. From forgetting a stroller (TWICE!), to shoving a box into a car the size of a pinto bean, to buying an umbrella stroller that you have to assemble…shopping with Gigi is always an adventure!

I have been begging for kisses since he was born, he now gives them!! Yay!!! Maybe growing up isn’t so bad!

June 25 is my Nanny Janet’s birthday. When I was 2 months old, I spent the night away from home for the first time with Nanny Janet. I was a peace offering. My parents forgot her birthday that year, so to make up for it, my dad offered me up. Since then it has been a joke that you NEVER forget her birthday.

This year, with Rylan, I was determined to be extra careful. While we were at the lake the day before her birthday I took a few shots of my cousins holding an empty frame. I did it right in front of Nanny, she had no idea what was going on. After a simple color change and added text from Picasa, I got these….
