Water Fun and Dance

We had such a fun, but busy, day! We met up with our friends Amber and Matthew at the splash pad for the first time this summer.  One more item to check off our summer bucket list, although I'm sure there will be plenty more visits!

It was a little cool, but the girls still had a good time. It took Sophia a little bit of coaxing before she would go in, but once she realized that she could fill up her bucket, she was good to go. Emma kept herself busy filling smaller buckets that she then transferred into larger buckets. She was covered with goosebumps, but she didn't want to leave. She took a few breaks to warm up and was right back at it.

Sweet friends
After the girls took their naps, the most hectic part of the day began. Both girls have Little Gym on Wednesdays and their classes are back to back. Andy took Sophia to her class while I fed Emma dinner and got her ready for dance. While Emma was at her class, Andy brought Sophia home, fed her dinner and got her ready for bed.

This was Sophia's first experience and we were a little worried about how she'd do. Emma and I got to the gym a little early so we were able to catch the last few minutes of her class. She looked like she was having a ball! Andy said she was a little rambunctious, but oh well. It's gym!
She was so surprised to see Mommy and her big sister!

Emma had her first dance class and she was SO excited! Her class was broken up into two groups; one three year old class and one 4-5 year old class. Emma and one other little girl were the only three year olds, so they got lots of attention. Emma's group started out with dance where they did tap and ballet, and then moved to gymnastics. Emma had been waiting to wear her tap shoes all day and couldn't wait to get started. She did a great job and I was so proud of her! Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I was using my little point and shoot through the window.

I LOVE this picture!
