James' grandma has a family reunion every year on Memorial Day and we were able to go. This has been the second year we've been able to make it up as a family. I'm a bit awkward with making conversation with people I don't know very well, but everyone was very nice and made it very easy. Afterwards, we went Uncle Boyd's (Grandma's brother) (not sure of the spelling) house, where there were some baby goats.
Tali got preoccupied with some flowers.
I think James wouldn't mind having a goat someday.
This little guy was the daddy. And a sweetheart.
Tali's first time on a trampoline! Very exciting! No one else was aloud on, unless they were just sitting. Sometimes, I love how cautious she is.
Tali said that this little girl is her best friend... though she says that about everyone.
Trying very hard to feed the goats.
Love this picture with Uncle Boyd and Tali walking down the path.
We walked over to the farm that grandma grew up on (someone else in the family owns it now). We looked at the chickens, bunnies, ducklings, horses, pigs, donkey's, and probably something else that I'm forgetting. It was a lot of fun, but Tali was starting to get pretty tired.
We had dinner with James' family and Tali had her first cotton candy. She loved it.
A really nice Memorial Day.
A few thoughts from that day:
1. Tali got some good practice on how to climb a ladder on the swingset there. One of those things that you never think of someone having to learn to do. Hope that she's not embarrassingly late on learning how to do this.
2. She is starting to cry a little bit when she doesn't get her way. Something I really won't tolerate. Though, it's a bit hard to figure out a perfect way to handle. She is a sensitive little girl and seems to get her heart broken easily. Reminds me of myself as a child.
3. She has cute, little freckles coming out this summer. Reminds me of some of the pictures I've seen of James as a kid.
