Mommy-Daughter Date

Cadence had a doctors appointment in "the big city," so the two of us made a day out of it!

Our first stop was the camera shop to go window shopping and we tested out a new lens.  Unfortunately we couldn't take it home with us! 

Then we stopped to have a fun McDonalds lunch!  Cadence was so excited to have her very own "little hamburger!"

After lunch was her doctors appointment which she didn't enjoy as much.  We just switched to a new ENT.  She had a slightly traumatic experience with an ear vacuum at the last one.  This doc was MUCH better, but she wasn't won over quite yet.

And we ended the day with some silly piano playing!  She loves to flip through my piano books and pretend to play. 

I love how she stuffs her hand in her mouth when she's giggly and delighted!

Pioneer Day Celebration

Our stake had their annual Pioneer Day Celebration today.  It was wonderful!  The three of us had so much fun enjoying the different displays, activities, and friends we saw there!  I had the opportunity to help with the set up early this morning (6:45am!  I couldn't believe I actually made it on time!!).  It was great to be a part of the event and I made sure to point out to Derek all the signs that I hung up! :)

Cadence doing one of the things she does best... telling us what to do!  "Let's look at that Dad!"

I figured she'd be thrilled to pieces about the sheep.  After all, she asks
to watch Shaun the Sheep every 5 minutes from the moment she wakes up
until the moment she falls asleep.  But no, she liked them from a distance
but was completely freaked out once she tried to touch them!

Best part of the morning?  Ice cream cones!!  Perfect for a hot day!
