Everybody's Working for the Weekend

Our big plans for weekend fun got rained out. Instead of hitting the zoo or the children's museum like we had planned, we ended up grabbing some early take-out at the Donut Hole before rushing home to wait for the DirecTV guys who did not show up until 11! When they were finished we headed into town for some shopping. Our last stop was Esplanade Mall where they have an indoor inflatable playground where I had planned to let Stella have some fun. Unfortunately, they were closed for a private party. In what was truly one of my more desperate acts, I decided to let Stella try the bungee jumper in the middle of the mall. She seemed like she wanted to do it and I was hoping it would help her learn how to jump for her gymnastics class. (That is her one weakness...her upper body jumps, but her legs don't!) Anyway, we waited in line FOREVER and when it was finally our turn Stella was very content until they actually lifted her in the harness and her feet could not touch the trampoline anymore. Then she was decidedly discontent. Here is Stella rocking the Britney Spears look during her happy time in the harness. Following church today, we attended our first wedding shower as mother and daughter. It was for Lindsay Griffith, bride-elect of the fabulous David Peterson. Here is Stella complimenting the bride on her lovely attire...(she's so thoughtful that way!)
Here are Molly and Stella helping Tristyn unpack her toy bag...
The big three reunited: Tristyn, Molly, and Stella...queen bees of the church nursery...
Stella decided she needed to get in on the gift action...
And finally, having a snack with Mr. Tommy...he's very good with little girls, even though his little girls are big girls now!
