[Such a sweet slide!]
While there were definitely more kids there than just Maddy (who do you spy there at the pool's edge watching Maddy on the slide??? If you guessed, Kamree, you're right)! Anyway, I'm not comfortable taking photos of or posting pics of other people's kids (well, Kamree did sneak into that one photo) , so that's why Maddy is the only one you can see at the party!
Believe me, there were a lot of kids and there was a lot of fun going on!
[Sidewalk chalk is cool!]
What a great way to say goodbye to summer and hello to the school year!

This is about as close to a cow as Maddy wants to get!
This lovely, though hungry, peacock followed us around begging for fries and popcorn!!!

My little Miss Maddy- 8 and 1/2 years old this summer! She's getting taller, sweeter and more beautiful every day. Of course, I may be a tad bit biased! :)
This was one of the very first photos we ever saw of her -- she was probably about 11 or12 months old.
Do you see the determined spirit in her eyes? I do -- such a determined and brave baby!
In some ways, it seems like she is growing up so fast! Pierced ears already! In many ways, she's still my little bitty girl. I love that big gap-toothed smile of hers, twinkly eyes and beautiful black hair.
During a break in the action in Chicago, she and I played a rousing game of SkipBo (I'm still not sure how that card game is played), but after I lost repeatedly, she rounded up some other friends to play with her. Yay -- Pooh resurfaced in Chicago!! :)
