We went to my cousin Lesley's wedding this weekend. Maggie (as always) had a ton of fun with her cousins! We were so happy we were able to share this very special day with Lesley. 

Growing and growing!

We are having a lot of luck with our plants! They just keep growing and growing. Now I have to figure out what to do with them!

Mags and I decided to do some "gardening" today. We planted peas, sweet peas, and poppies in egg cartons. We planted some bulbs and re-potted most of my plants. She was sort of helpful, but mostly got dirt everywhere!

Maggie putting the seeds in. 
Our finished product. Hopefully it does something!!

First field trip!

We went on Maggie's first field trip today! I am so glad I was able to chaperone and experience this with her. She had a lot of fun and I'm sure she can't wait to go again. We went to see the Goldilocks and the Three Bears at the Beverly Performing Arts Center. The whole class really seemed to enjoy themselves except for the other girl in my group who was afraid of heights and ended up sitting in the balcony! The best part was when the three bears returned home to find Goldilocks and Maggie was sitting on my lap and both girls were covering their eyes because they were afraid of what was going to happen to Goldilocks! Haha. And they both know the story! So funny. 
Maggie's first time on a bus!!
Mags and Ella of course sitting together even though we weren't sure either were going to be able to go be able to go because of Maggie's eye issues and Ella's excitement issues!

We are going to Emma's party today! I'll post pics later from the actual party, but I made the cupcakes for the party and wanted to post those before I forget.
