first ballet recital

emma taylor had her first ballet recital this past saturday. she did great! she loved being on the big stage and showing off her dancing skills. we are so proud!

also, we learned that we have no clue how to take pictures in an auditorium with bright stage lighting. so excuse the quality.

ballet bun

i had my first experience getting emma taylor ready for a ballet recital with a true ballet bun. it was slightly torturous to both of us. she has so many curls and so much hair but we did it. and she looks way to old so this summer we are cutting it off into a cute manageable bob.

strawberry picking

we went strawberry picking with our friend jay this past week. it's carzy to think that last year this time macy wasn't walking and emma taylor couldn't carry her own bucket. this year emma taylor picked an entire bucket and carried it by herself and macy happily trotted down the strawberry aisles and treated herself to more strawberries than i could count.
