Stone Mountain!

This week I went to Stone Mountain with the girls--separately, not together: I took Elyse on Wednesday, while Mommy was at training and Jessica was at Granny and Pa's house, and then Jessica and I went Friday, while Mommy and Elyse were out doing various errands.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the outings:

Jessica and I stopped at Krispy Kreme on our way:

Gramma and Grampa's Photo Shoot

Anna's parents have been here visiting for a few days. This morning, right after breakfast and just before they left so Anna could drive them to Aunt Carol's house for a couple of days, I had a little time to make a few pictures. (However, most of the pictures were really just Jessica and Elyse. I don't think Gramma and Grampa minded.) Here are some of the best from that pre-departure photo shoot:

(This may be my new favorite picture of Elyse.)

(They were being cats in this picture; Elyse is in mid-meow.)

(Elyse has been wearing this Cinderella swimsuit almost constantly for about a week now. She will concede to take it off to put on one of her Dora nighties for bedtime, and she'll exchange it with her pink swimsuit so I can wash this one. You can't tell, but she's wearing the Cinderella swimsuit under her blue dress in the pictures above.)
