Stella's Field Day

Monday we had the chance to join Stella and her class at Field Day...
There were nine events that each class rotated through.  First up for Ms. Dolly's group was the bouncing ball race...
Stella was completely worn out by this event...
But she perked back up for the sack race...

Next we raced stick horses while wearing back packs.  I don't know who came up with these events, but the kids enjoyed them...
See what I mean?

Water break!
Stella excelled at this event and it was consequently her favorite one...


Watts was very impressed by her steady hands...

Tug-of-war with 4 and 5-year-olds...this could be a recipe for disaster...







Stella is obviously a descendent of Ray Pourciau.  She tried to cheat in order to win...
Meanwhile, Watts and Daddy were having a wonderful conversation...









Last game!
Stella scored 60 points and was so proud of her performance...


Way to go, Stella!  Daddy, Watts, and I had so much fun with you at Field Day!

Boo at the Zoo

This time of year there are so many fun things to do!  In the past we have attended Boo at the Zoo in New Orleans, but this year we decided to try out the same event at the Baton Rouge Zoo.  Stella donned her Belle princess dress and Cille masqueraded as Pinkalicious for the event.  Watts went along, too, but since his costume is better suited to cold weather and he has no teeth yet to rot out with candy, he didn't dress up or trick-or-treat...

I love how Watts and his stroller were included in the photo op...
Scary!

Looking at the panther.  He was just like Bagheera!  
Squinty picture...
Stella got a gold doubloon!
Picking up their dresses...
Cille bumped her noggin on the fence...

This pumpkin was painted like a cat, so Cille decided to pet it...


My little tots...

Stella had to run to catch up to "the girls"...
In the middle of the zoo we decided to take a break on a bench and play Snow White.  Don't ask me why, but this happens a lot in our family...

Yay!  Daddy must be her true love!  She woke up!
They even made Damon be the princess...

And I thought I was his true love...oh, well...

Pawpaw was a little worn out after his weekend of partying...

Decisions, decisions...


This horse decided to dress as a convict for Halloween...


Conferring on the candy...
