Cadence participated in a third and final gymnastics competition for the year. Here she is rocking the bars, beam and floor ... I always miss the vault shot!

It was no surprise, after our brutal winter, that pool opening day would be later than usual.
|Our pool girl hard at work!|
|First 'dip' ...|
|Can you tell the heater has not yet been turned on?!|
|Heading out for a celebratory dinner|
|She sure is sassy!|
|Sipping on a root beer float didn't curb her appetite!|

Cadence officially made her first communion on Mother's Day. It was a beautiful day shared with special friends and family. Thank you to everyone who travelled from near and far...we are so blessed!
The only downer of the day ... we did not get a photo of the girls together in their dresses or with their lovely cake ... I'm slipping!
|A GREAT big thank you to Auntie Donna for bringing this dress all the way from Cadence's birthplace!|
|Opening a few gifts before mass.|
|This photo takes my breath away!|
|Bad mommy snuck a photo in church during the procession in ... forgive me!|
|Cadence with her Godparents|
|Cadence and her friend Amelia|
|Cadence and Baba|
|Cadence and Fr. Anthony|
|A family photo ... finally!|
|A 'mom' selfie ... these moms didn't get a day of rest ... they put together a fabulous lunch and dinner ... can't thank them enough!|
|Cadence is ready and waiting to celebrate Liv's first communion too!|

This year's annual Girl's Weekend took us back to the zoo. With our FREE admission, we decided to check into the nearest motel for some extra fun ... bed jumping, snacking, movie watching, staying up WAY too late and a dip in the pool!
|One of the pandas here was a mere few weeks old and at the Chongqing Panda Zoo when we visited it with Cadence ... kinda cool!|
|Here he is ... all grown up!|
Tip: When you go to the panda exhibit stay to the right and go to the lower level!
|Up close and personal with the polars!|
|Showing her new tat!|
|He was all over her, but she was not interested!|
|Made for a GREAT photo op ... then I ran!|
|Another close encounter!|
It was a perfect weekend ... there was something for everyone to enjoy!
