This past weekend we were very busy with a few parties we were invited to attend.
First there was Jonah’s birthday at the White Post Farm. The party was Friday evening, after the park had already closed. We had the place all to ourselves!
Genevieve loved everything about it. She got to ride a horse for the first time. At first she didn’t like it too much…
But once the horse started moving, she warmed up and then she looked like she’d been riding her whole life. =)
The birthday boy was right at home on the horse in all his cowboy gear. Genevieve asked to ride the big horse afterward, but once she got on she realized it was a lot bigger than she thought!
We got to see a lot of animals… llamas, goats, pigs, zebras, bunnies…
There were a lot of babies at the farm. Those piglets were so cute. Look at the little one on the left! The baby goats were just born that day. They were adorable. Genevieve didn’t get too close to any of the animals, but she loved the little bunnies. She enjoyed petting their soft fur.
We gave the goats bottles of milk. They pulled really hard on the bottles and when I was feeding the goat, the milk splashed up all over my face! Yuck!
Genevieve and John took a train ride. Genevieve looked pretty serious the entire time, but John enjoyed it!
Of course we finished up the party with some birthday cake- farm themed, of course.
Sunday was dedication day! We had two to attend. Ethan was being dedicated at church in the morning. So we started our day at the Vineyard Church. Ethan was so cute in his little white romper, but I didn’t get to take a picture of him that day. This picture is from a few weeks ago and I just love it! He is so adorable and sweet.
Jean Marie’s dedication was at a restaurant in the afternoon. I thought Genevieve would sleep in between, but she didn’t. Even without a nap she did pretty well at the party.
Tom Barry did a beautiful job for Jean Marie’s dedication. Jean Marie looked like a little angel!
The children had some fun running back and forth with the balloons in front of the bar. Genevieve and Jean Marie were shrieking at each other and having a ball.
I loved Genevieve’s dress so much- and the little flower headband! We searched all over for shoes and I really like the ones we found. I thought she looked so beautiful but I didn’t really get a great picture. And in all the pictures that I took of Genevieve by herself, she didn’t have the headband on! Oh well!
It was a busy but fun weekend. And it was really wonderful to be a part of the dedications of two babies who are very special to us!
