Go, Horsey! Go!

We’re in Tulsa.  We arrived on Friday and are staying until Tuesday or Wednesday.  Steve, Claire and I went to the mall on Saturday, and Claire and her daddy got to ride the carousel.  There are a lot of great pictures, so I decided to post them all.  Enjoy!

Claire’s horse’s name was Boomer.005






PopPop also makes a great horse.  Here Analise and Claire are going for a ride.028

And I just had to post this series of pictures because it’s cute to watch Claire’s falling off.  She loved it and got back up just so she could fall off again.029




Poor PopPop needed a break.  Next up – story time.034

We’re having a lot of fun with PopPop, MiMi, Aunt Shannon, Analise and Allie!!

Then she figured out how fun it was!003

Ready to Shop!

016 005

Claire rarely goes anywhere without her purse these days.  She’s getting so big.  (The contents of the purse – crayons, a page out of a coloring book and a Little People figurine – today it was the birthday girl with a red balloon.)  She’s a great shopping buddy!  Love my girl!!
