Hey folks. Long time, no blog. I know I know.
I’m gonna try to get back in the groove of posting more soon.
But until then, here is a slide show of SOME of the 1000 photos that Doug Mulford took at Ginny’s Second Birthday Party.
the party was at The Little Gym in Snellville. I had always sworn I was NEVER going to pay to have a party at some venue outside my home for a childrens party. yeh, I know never say never….
At the beginning of the summer we enrolled Ginny in a weekly class at the Little Gym and she loved it so much that we decided “oh what the heck, let’s have her party here too” and boy are we ever glad we did!
First of all two year olds have WAY too much energy to have a party at our house. Our home can barely contain Ginny in an energetic mood, never mind 10 or 15 guest kids. oi! The Little Gym staff was amazing. They did everything we paid for and then some. When we arrived they made a point of asking what Ginny’s favorite games are. Hide-n-seek? Peek-a-boo? Tag? So that they could tailor the group activities to HER tastes! Maybe other places do this too, but I am naive enough that I was impressed.
Anyway, her favorite thing in the whole world to do these days is (in her own words) Bouncy! Bouncy! Bouncy! so they extended the time the kids get to play on the bounce…thingy.
I will post an update on her words and current doings soon, but for now I’ll just say that Ginny is 34 inches tall, weighs 26 pounds and has the sweetest personality in the world. I am daily amazed at this wonderful, complicated, cheerful, creative, energetic little girl that God has blessed us with. “Thank you” doesn’t even begin to convey the feelings I have for Ginny’s birthparents, Mel & Steve.
The adventure that officially started in a hospital room in Kansas on the night of August 29th, 2008 continues. I can’t wait to see what comes next!
Happy 2nd Birthday to my lovely
