Weekend; Toddlers Tutorial of an iphone

As you all know, my friend Ashleigh visited this past weekend. We had a fantastic time, though it rained most of Saturday and was pretty chilly Sunday (though sunny!) Friday was perfect Florida weather, we laid out in the pool ALL DAY LONG (Lallie went to school so we got some big-girl time!) We swam with Lallie when she got home.

Saturday, we went to downtown Stuart where we toured all the little shops, bought some great shoes (of course!) and Lallie picked up a miniture stuffed shark and a bracelet. She's really into the movie "Finding Nemo" and she thinks the sharks are funny. My mom would say "like mother, like daughter" as I laughed when Bambi's mother was shot and killed. I was three . It rained while we were downtown, so we stopped at Kilwin's (YUMMM!) for a caramel apple, chocolate covered twinkie and Lallie had blue ice cream in which there was not a bite to spare!

Later, we just hung around watching movies and went for a walk once it cleared up.

Sunday, it was off to church. We took pictures with all of Lallie's Godparents. This is a great picture of everyone BUT Lallie!

Then it was off to the airport, so sad. Lallie kept saying "no bye-bye." She never cried......until..... ....last night. Our next door neighbor, Jamie, came over because I need her to babysit in a couple weeks and she needed details. Jamie looks a lot like Ashleigh and Lallie thought she WAS Ashleigh. Lallie would not let Jamie leave and when that time came, I've never seen tears so big or a temper tantrum so heavy. Husband and I didn't know what to do. We tried calling Ashleigh, but Lallie was just beside herself. She finally calmed down. It was tough as it wasn't a temper tantrum because of something she wanted but couldn't have. She just missed her Auntshleigh. Big frowns.....

Here's Lallie using an iphone. Yes! She actually knows how to unlock it, go to the camera and then scroll through pictures. Scary.

All in all, we had a fabulous weekend and miss Ashleigh very much!
