Cadence loves Chuck E. Cheese. She was so excited when we drove up. She likes the pizza, but loves the rides. Her favorite thing about coming here is when she gets to give Chuck E. Cheese five - which she did this time.
Breelle was busy winning tickets, but she also had time to ride some rides with Cadence and assist her on skee-ball.
Cadence thought riding Clifford, the big red dog, was so exciting. She was able to make him bark by pushing a button. Does life get better than that?
Cadence put her face upto the plastic to give blowfishes to me, her mom. Isn't she sweet, and beautiful?
Cadence is sneaking a kiss with Chuck E. Cheese while she is driving!!! Watch out! Crazy driver on the road!
Breelle, Grammy and Cadence posing in front of Chuck E. Cheese. Cadence holding a much deserved sucker earned by tickets!!!
Cadence is scared by the "fake," mechanical Chuck E. Cheese, but likes the person dressed up as Chuck E. Cheese. She is silly! She talks about giving five to Chuck E. Cheese for days after she gets that opportunity.
Richard and Chris caught 12 Kokane Salmon fishing in just a couple of hours on a lake. Then they waded through the Snake River attempting to catch some catfish and bass. They only caught a couple little bass before heading back for Breelle's dance recital. The salmon tasted so yummy when Richard cooked them on Sunday. (Look at Chris' tan line in the bottom photo! He got some sun! And yes, black people do burn and tan - maybe it is called blacken!!!)
Natalie, Breelle and Cadence before the recital, "Alice in Wonderland." Breelle danced as a graceful, beautiful rabbit.
When somebody asks Cadence what Breelle was dressed as, Cadence would point to her nose. She really was impressed with Breelle's face paint.
Breelle after her recital getting flowers on stage.
Cadence was extremely disappointed that she could NOT go on stage and dance with all the other dancers during the recitals. She cried and kept saying, "Stage. Dance. On Stage." After the recital, she congradulated Breelle on stage and 'shook her bootie" which she is doing in this picture. She also knows how to dance like a ballerina by putting her hands over her head and turning in circles. This girl has got the rhythm! She wants to take dance now!!!
Cadence fell asleep on the floor for her Sunday nap. Jack, Richard's dog, cuddled up next to Cadence to take his nap. Jack is such a good dog.
Can you get pictures more sweet than this without posing?
Cadence loves playing with older kids. Breelle and her had so much fun at the park and playing around the house! Thanks for a great vacation to Boise!!! We are excited for next time!
*"Hold you me." This is what Cadence says when she wants Mom or Dad to pick her up.
*"And dis. And dis." When she doesn't have the words to explain an action or something that has happened or when she is in a hurry to tell/show something, she says "And dis." and acts it out!
*"Lemalade, please." This is how Cadence requests lemonade.
*"I bite the hand." Cadence's favorite line from the lion movie, Madagascar. She doesn't know what it means, but likes to say it.
*"Daddy's noring." Cadence doesn't say the 's' sound on the beginning of her words. While attempting to fall asleep while visiting my sister, Natalie, her new husband, Richard, and my niece, Breelle, in Boise, Cadence kept talking, talking and squirming around. Chris had already fallen asleep and was snoring. Cadence thought it was so weird and just kept repeating, "Daddy's noring." I would sing "It's raining. It's pouring. The old man is snoring!!!"
*"It hurts!" is Cadence's reply to anything she doesn't want to do or to have us do to her. She says it when we touch her hair, change her diaper, change her clothes, put on shoes, buckle her in her seatbelt, etc. She says it so cute because she can't say her 'r' sound correctly yet.
*"Because" is Cadence's answer for many "Why?" questions. I will ask her why she did something and her reply is "Because." She is already making so much sense with logic!!!
*"Oh my gosssss!" Cadence has dropped "Oh my Goodness" and started saying "Oh my gosssss." She holds the 's' for a while.
