Beauty & the Beast

We were so lucky to have awesome weather on our night at the Muny to see Beauty and the Beast! Emma was in awe seeing Belle and absolutely loved the performance! Ava was obsessed with the Beast and kept asking "where's the beast, i see the beast"!! It was a wonderful evening and an amazing show!!

Playa del Carmen

Ooh Mexico, Ooh Mexico, your beach is faithful ever.....

So we decided it was time to take our girls to the beach and what better location than our favorite.....Mexico!! After 2 planes and 1 bus ride and 2 very excited girls we arrived at the beautiful Riviera Maya. The beach was beyond gorgeous with white sand and water 3 colors of blue!! The girls had to immediately get their feet in the sand and absolutely loved every minute of our trip! They are total beach bums.....wanting to swim in the ocean and pool as much as possible...loved riding the waves and building sand castles with dad. It was a wonderful week and definitely a place we will go back to......very Mexican chic....full of European travelers, Mexican nationals....yummy food and the fun 5th avenue! We love you Mexico.....thanks for another awesome adventure!!

We are so excited the Shrewsbury pool is open for the summer! I think we've only missed 3 days since it opened on Memorial Day! Thank goodness we have a summer pass! The girls just started swimming lessons and are much more confident in the water this year! They love their floaties and the "noisy river" per ava! So, if you're trying to get a hold of us this summer in the afternoon, sorry we're probably relaxing at the POOL!!!

Perfect little Princesses!!

So Emma & Ava absolutely love to dress up like princesses!! It just might be their favorite thing to do. So when they heard g-ma Lor Lor and Baby Jim sent some princess dresses in the mail, they could hardly wait to get them.

It was a Saturday afternoon and the girls were dressed to go to the swimming pool, but we made a detour first to the post office to get the dresses. They had to open them immediately and put them on (over their swimsuits). They were beyond excited and happy :) :). The girls decided they didn't want to swim anymore but go home and play princess.

We decided to do something even more fun. With Emma dressed as Belle and Ava Sleeping Beauty, we went straight to Forest Park and bought tickets to see Beauty and the Beast at the Muny. The Muny is an outdoor theater in St. Louis and we will see the show in a couple of weeks. The girls are more than excited!! What a fun afternoon we had. I even broke one of my mommy rules and took them to Target in their dresses. Instead of Christmas in July, we decided it could be Halloween in June! Check out face painting we did later in the day too!
