We went to the horse races (the Aiken Trials) on Saturday in Aiken, SC. We had never done it before and it was fun! The weather was just a bit cold, but we only caught a few minutes of rain. The girls made their picks as the horses were paraded around the paddock before each race and they enjoyed watching the jockeys in their colorful silk jerseys mount up just before they went off to the gates. We brought snacks and drinks and tailgated during the down time.
Today was Mollie's birthday party revisited. Since Bella was sick last weekend, we had her over for another tea party today. She and Mollie played all day long and Mollie went out to dinner with Bella's family tonight. It struck me how much both Mollie and Bella have matured since they first became friends. Today they were both perfect little ladies, no whining or bickering from either one!
My big triumph was managing to get a few pictures of all 3 of my children at the same time. Next challenge: the whole family.
