Evelyn really seemed to like her little toddler bed and I stuck her in there for a while so I could pack and she played around a bit.
|She's fine. Promise.|
Then we checked out and went back to Carl and Shirley's for Mamaw's birthday party!
|Evelyn is wearing her 4th of July dress from last year.|
Mamaw and Evelyn did a lot of visiting and I even got a quick video of them together:
We visited and ate lunch and Evelyn continued chasing after dogs and the girls chased after her and then it was time for cake!
|Katie and Emily did something with red and blue Jell-O to make a festive birthday cake!|
And here's a video about that.
Mamaw is 87 now! Awesome.
The next couple of pictures are just for my parents.
|I really hope the pictures on Terri's camera are better than mine.|
This is Abby. She and Evelyn were great friends.
After lots of hugs and gathering up our stuff and more hugs, we left. It was nearly 3 hours past Evelyn's naptime, but she lasted longer than I thought she would--even with her bottle and teddy bear. She took good naps and traffic was still fairly kind to us. We stopped to eat, and Evelyn talked and played with her books.
We got home in time to snack a little, bathe our baby, and settle in for the night.
But! Sometime after nursing and bedtime prayers, and just before actual bedtime, we had one more fun thing to enjoy for the day:
It was good to be home.
