Starlight Symphony

We made our annual trip to the Starlight Symphony this past weekend! It's always held on the grounds of First Pres (our Playschool) so the girls are very familiar and attracts thousands for a free concert put on by the Jackson Symphony! Of course, summer can't end without the firing of the cannons of the 1812 Overture at the Starlight Symphony!
The girls enjoyed their ice cream and push ups that were given away!
We enjoyed a picnic and time with good friends. We even got to spend the evening with our sweet friend Della Day (a Playschool friend) who is now at a different school than the Roy girls. They all loved playing and dancing together!

A glimpse of what Julia was doing for most of the night while the music was playing! :)

Ready for Football Season!

The girls are ready for some football! We went to our first USJ football game on Friday night and of course we had to wear our cheerleader outfits. Since Gracie doesn't have an USJ uniform yet, she had a great idea to wear her Ole Miss one since the Bruins have the same colors as the Rebels! We are definitely looking forward to Ole Miss football and the Grove very SOON!

Beach Trip 2011 - Part 1

We had a chance to take a beach trip down to Watercolor, FL (off 30A) and had a wonderful time. We had some sunny days, some rainy days, and some in between. But we made the most of it and did lots of (beginning) boogie boarding and sand castle building! It was a great week of vacation right at the end of summer!
These sweet girls loved the sand, the waves and the beach in general!
