Steppin' Out Saturday: Girls in Tights

Saturday we stepped out to our baby cousin's first birthday party, a happy
celebration indeed!  We made baby Graison a handmade birthday card, wrapped up his
toy train before Brees could steal it, and headed out for a day of fun with our family.  I
always leave children's birthday parties wondering, in the midst of chasing after my
children and trying to help the hostess as much as I can: Did I even sit down and have
one decent conversation?  My cousins and I always call each other on the way home,
our babies partied out and napping in the car, and laugh about how we spent most of
the party wiping noses, changing diapers, keeping the littles fed and happy.  We
slightly remember talking to each other and catching up, but it's all a sugar rush blur.
The joys of motherhood and the memory deficit that accompanies it...
We managed to beat the cool, windy day for a few photos, with camera shy Shawn
making a rare appearance:

Dress, belt, and tights: F21
Cardi: AE
Boots: Rue21
Belle:
Dress and tights: Old Navy

Brees:

Hope you are all enjoying your time off this lovely weekend!!
