It's finally fall around here and for this East Texas girl it means one thing- The Rose Festival (or as it's better known in our house: The Princess Parade)! For some reason my boys weren't super excited about spending a weekend watching all things Princess, so it was up to Emery and I to carry on with out them. We left Friday morning and enjoyed a fun girls' weekend together!
We took some selfies:
Listened to this song as we drove in to Tyler:
And got excited when it was time to "count the turns" to Gigi and OK's house!
We talked Camryn Joy and Sarah into having a slumber party at Gigi and OK's with us and the girls were SO excited (ok, we were all pretty excited)! They woke up Saturday morning and immediately (like, Emery was up at 6 and this is her at 6:05) started playing dress up and helping Gigi bake for the parade.
And then it was time to head to the parade! We packed our chairs, blankets, muffins and, of course, tiaras and waited on the princesses. The girls had so much fun just being together and watching all the bands. Those 2 are so cute!
After the parade we made a quick stop back at Gigi and Ok's for a little food and then it was time to head back to the princesses! We have always gone to the Queen's Tea and now it is so much fun to watch our girls enjoy it too. And the girls in the Rose Festival go above and beyond to make our girls feel special. They hug them, talk to them, take pictures with them. It's really great. (Ready for Princess picture overlaod? OK- let's go!)
Aren't those girls too cute?!?!
We also took some time to celebrate Easton's second birthday. We had dinner all together and went back to Gramma K's house for some cake and presents. We watched the Aggies loose (sigh)
But found our strength to carry on and enjoy some time together and celebrate Wild Man.
It was such a FUN weekend and I can't wait to go back and do it again next year!!!
