I am a little behind on posts lately. So I will start with Tulip time and try to catch up from here. We had a great time this year - Liam's first tulip time. He wore the costume I made for Carter last year. It was kinda snug, but so cute.He loves to stand up like a big boy and he sucks his lips in a lot - when he doesn't have his fingers in his mouth! You can't tell by the pictures I post because I try to weed those out.
This is my dutch dance partner, Missy. She looks so cute with Liam, they are wearing the same style of dutch costume - the boys Volendam. Missy got in lots of trouble this year dancing. I think she got yelled at every night for wearing too many earrings and having bobby pins in instead of hat pins. She is such a rebel! (or is it just the crazy costume inspectors?)
Carter and Liam came to watch me dance a few nights. I think they love the attention from all the tourists. Aren't they just the cutest? We also went to the parade on Wednesday. Carter loved it - Liam could care less, as long as he gets fed and gets a nap!
From left to right - Jenn and Cam, Abby and Rylee, Kelly and Carter, Me and Liam, Jill and Hudson. What a fun night! I can't believe we got everyone in the picture - and no tears! The kids did pretty good considering it was getting to be past their bed times. It's a riot dressing them up in these silly costumes just to get a few good pictures.
I couldn't resist posting one more of Liam. He is just starting to sit up on his own. Right after we took this picture I let go of him to see if he could sit by himself and he leaned a little too far towards the tulips and did a face plant in the dirt! He didn't even cry, he was far too interested in the grass. It was hard to get him to look up for a picture he just wanted to stare at the ground. It really makes me wonder what he will be doing at this time next year. I bet it will be even harder to get a good picture!
