Nana and Papa B. came all the way up from New Orleans to visit with us last week. Well, when I say "us," I mostly mean Addie and Millie of course! We had a great time with them and got a lot of stuff done too! Chad and his dad pulled out all of the overgrown evergreen trees and bushes behind our house and built steps coming off the back of our deck. And Chad's mom painted over all the purple on the wall in the nursery with blue, so it'll be ready for the baby boy! That was a HUGE blessing! I was definitely not looking
forward to that task, although my dear friend Abby had offered to come and help. But now I don't have to think about it anymore! Thanks, Elaine!
The girls were super excited about all the dress up clothes Nana brought up for them. Below is a video of my dancing queen in some of her new outfits. You'll notice a few times she catches a glimpse of herself in her vanity mirror and can't look away. She's mesmerized by her own cuteness. But my favorite part is when her toe gets stuck in the fringe of her flapper dress. Good thing she's not old enough to be embarrassed that I'm posting this. She loves this video!
All dressed up!

Waiting for the fireworks to begin. It was the chilliest 4th of July we've had in a LONG time!

On their last day here we went to Union Park to ride the carousel.
