A Whirlwind Summer

We have had the busiest summer I can remember in a LONG time, and I think that is evident from the lack of posts! Maddy is growing quickly and is as funny as ever. She brings a great deal of laughter and fun to us and we wish you could all be here to enjoy her as much as we do. She is working on reading right now...and continues to add to her list of sight she can read to baby Emma in the bathtub:) I wish those of you who keep up with this blog also had the pleasure of being on facebook so you could share with and enjoy all of Maddy's "famous Maddyisms" that I post each week!
I have posted a collage of pictures from the course of the summer for you to enjoy. I hope to post again soon!! In the meantime, enjoy your summer:)

Recital and More

Maddy had her first ever dance recital today and she did an amazing job!! Gramma Nini and Grandpa Henry drove across the state to see her debut, while Getta, Kev and Emma came to see the final product...after visiting many dance classes throughout the year. We were all impressed by how well she did. She "loves being up on that stage" and it shows. She spent her weekend surrounded by people she loves. She had a playdate with me on Friday was SO MUCH FUN. Then she spent the entire day Saturday with her BFF, Jackie. While they played, Getta came over and we watched Emma enjoy the piano and microphone very much. Today, she got to see Nini and Henry, which is always tons of fun. She got a beautiful ballerina charm and some delicious cupcakes homemade by Gramma Nini herself. Both of those were a huge hit! This is the last full week of school and we are ALL ready for some down time. ( if). We have lots of exciting (local) trips planned for the summer and I know August will be here before we know it. Sigh. I will be sure to post pics of the summertime fun. In the meantime, enjoy the pics from the weekend.

Disney Weekend

Maddy had a great time with her cousins this weekend at Epcot and the Animal Kingdom. She was NOT happy to leave but we assured her she will see them again soon. When Clint and I go on a mommy/daddy vacation:) Sorry to make it short...but I am exhausted. I will post again sooner than I did this time. I PROMISE!!!

Fun in the Sun

We went to Daytona to see Grandma Nini and Grandpa Henry for Easter and we had SO MUCH FUN. We spent lots of time in the sun both on the beach and on the boat. We built sandcastles, flew kits, went shelling, played in the water, and even peed in the water, as shown below:) When we were not having fun in the sun, Maddy was busy playing, cooking, gardening, etc. at the house with Gramma Nini. We are all so grateful to have such a fun place to visit and we appreciate the time and effort that goes into each visit being extra special. We love you and look forward to seeing you again in June.

Just for Fun

Hello! I have decided to update the blog just for fun. No special event or visitor to tell about, just a couple of pictures to fulfill a necessary Maddy fix. We had a great weekend in Tampa...those seem to be few and far between. Maddy is as sweet as ever and growing up SO fast:( We are grateful every day that she is in our lives! She did go to her first ever "Tot Night" at the YMCA and she loved it. She spends quite a bit of time at the Y for her twice weekly swim lessons and twice weekly play time while Clint and I work out, so she knows the workers and kiddos there. For $15, we were able to taker her at 4:30 and pick her up between 8:30 and 9:00. Clint and I enjoyed dinner, a movie and some quick shopping at Michael's(for Maddy of course) before picking her up at 8:30. She was so upset that we got there "too early" that she started crying when we had to leave. She played basketball for the first time..and loved it...she made a craft, ate pizza, played outside among a bunch of other fun things in the 4 hours she was there. She asked if she could do that everyday (that's what I get for thinking we are any fun). Clint and I enjoyed our time as well, so everybody won:) We hope you have a great week! More soon.

Mickey and More

Once again I have been a slacker on updating the blog...I need more hours in a day. As you can see from the pictures below...Maddy and her cousins had a blast at Disney!! I think the picture of her waving with the castle in the background could be marketed, but I am biased:) It's a Small World remained her favorite ride of all time and there was no line for it so that was great. We did all the kids stuff there is too do and then they were ready to go back to the hotel. That worked out great since I had to be up and at my marathon by 4am the next morning. I finished my 13.1 miles in 2:55, then went on to spend the day with everyone at MGM. I thought about sharing the stroller with Maddy and Britt, but I made it. The girls had another great day at the park before heading home. The next day marked the 2nd beginning of swim lessons for Maddy. She goes twice a week and LOVES it, so that is great. She is still in dance as well, and has her big recital coming up in June. We certainly burn both ends of the candle in the Huff household! I will upload more pics SOON, I promise. In the meantime, enjoy these and have a great week.
