Olivia decided to have her hair cut for summer!!!!!!!!!! Smart girl!!!!
Here is the "Before" picture:
Here is the "After" picture:
She was quite pleased, as were mom and dad. She's gotten a ton of compliments about it, so she's quite proud. Brooke got her hair trimmed, too.
And here's Kathy, the super hair stylist. Olivia loves it that she gets to go to the "Beauty Parlor" to have her hair done.
At home, we tired a flip. It's cute, but O's hair is so fine, it just doesn't last long.
Uncle Dave didn't have to numb her tooth, so that was a plus. But, he did have to drill just a little. Notice the clenched fists in the picture below. She hated the sound, but it was over in just a few seconds. No tears, no pain.
Brooke was very curious about the whole procedure. Uncle Dave can talk and fix at the same time!
Brooke just loves to clown with Uncle Dave. They both laugh alot.
After Olivia's teeth looked beautiful again, we went down the street to see Grandma Sally and Grandpa Howard. They are preparing for their 5-month summer trip to Minnesota with their 2 giant dogs (Summer Oddessy 2010).
Olivia had a playdate with her friend from Pre-K, Jordana. They had a ball and let Brooke play, too. (Jordana loves to pick Brooke up and lug her around.)
Brooke loves to snuggle on Daddy. He laid down on the floor to watch TV and she made herself comfortable.
We took the girls to the Big Shanty Festival. It used to just be around City Hall, but it has expanded to fill the entire downtown area. Lots of junk food, typical festival souveniers and bouncies for the kids. The weather was perfect!!!!!
We bought some sandwiches for lunch. Mark came up with the best idea for eating them. The sides on our wagon are removable - so the girls sat in the shade on the curb, we took off one side of the wagon and - ta! da! - we had a table to eat on! That Daddy is so smart!!!!
Both the girls wanted to go on the big bouncy slide. We weren't sure about Brooke going on something that big alone, but she was determined. We knew we could rescue her if we needed to. The girls climbed to the top and Olivia immediately slid back down without a second thought - leaving Brooke alone at the top (they were supposed to come down together).
After a few minutes and a lot of coaxing, Brooke summoned her courage and took the plunge (because Olivia was on the way back up to get her and Brooke didn't want that to happen)!
Olivia arranged the backyard to practice walking down the aisle. WHAT??? She knows she's not allowed to date until she's 40, but I don't think she cares... (Her new boyfriend at school is some guy named "Jack", by the way. Whether he likes it or not. Miss Kathleen says he's "ok".) I know this day may come eventually, but she's only 5 and I'm not ready to even think about it yet. Besides, heaven only knows how much it will cost!!!!! Yet another thing to save $$ for, right after orthodontics, car insurance and college.
