The Circus!

After the swim meet, we took the girls to Lafayette for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Fully Charged Circus!  This same show came to Baton Rouge, but Damon's high school buddy Ryan was taking his kids to the Lafayette show, so we decide to attend that one.  You weren't allowed to take pictures during the performance, but we snapped a couple of the kids after the show...making silly faces...

They really enjoyed the circus!  It was Cille's first time and Stella's second.  The last time Stella went in New Orleans with Pawpaw and Daddy right after Cille was born and she fell asleep during the performance.

City Swim Meet

Since the kids turned 6 months old I have obsessively applied sunblock to each one prior to sun exposure.  Swim team members are definitely no exception...



For the final meet our whole family traveled out to Greystone Country Club...



Stella's only race that day was the 25 meter freestyle...here she is warming up...
That diving form thing...we're still working on that...



















It was actually chilly that morning and the kids were freezing waiting for their race to start...
The big moment...



And she's off!


Yay!  She's pulling ahead!








Stella did an amazing job this year on swim team.  She practiced hard every day and set a new personal record at every meet, including this one!  She was sad when swim team was over.  We are all looking forward to swim team next year.  Like her team shirt said, "In the pool, life is cool.  Swimmers rule!"

Cille's BirthDAY

Cille's party was actually on the day before her birthday, so the celebration continued the next morning with her birthday breakfast in bed...a Pourciau family tradition...
And of course, what's a birthday breakfast without presents?

She's already excited and she doesn't even know what it is...


She was even more excited when she saw it was one of her favorites, Doc McStuffins...


After church Mawmaw and Pawpaw came to visit and give Cille this...

Which perplexed her for some reason...

Wattsy looking like a mini-man...


Sand: dream of kids and arch-nemesis of parents...


Back inside it was time for more presents...




The dog in this card "danced"...


Mawmaw even made Cille another birthday cake...
Okay, actually several more birthday cakes and we did candles multiple times...



The girls helped with the decorating...



Chocoholic much?

Happy Birthday, Cille!  You are such a sweet and funny girl and we love you so much!
