We LOVE a good park! We had not yet been to Ravine Gardens State Park in Palatka, so we decided to venture there last weekend. The park is gorgeous and great for a day trip. We walked around the park for a few hours and then headed to Angel's Dining Car for lunch. Juliette loved the park...and slept through lunch!
Merry Christmas! Today was a great day! Juliette woke up to find all her goodies delivered by Santa. She was so excited this year! She got pretty much every Paw Patrol item out there along with a bunch of other fun things. Her favorite gifts this year are her Paw Patrol semi-truck (thanks Aunt Karen & Aunt Maggie!), her new Thomas train set and her mail box. It took a while to open everything since she was so in to the first things she opened. It is so fun to have Christmas with a little person!
After breakfast, Juliette played with all her new toys. Since it was 80+ degrees outside today, Juliette & I went for a run/walk around the neighborhood. So far a fun day has been had by all! Juliette is still napping as I type this at 5:30 p.m. So much fun for one day! And we haven't even had dinner yet! Merry Christmas!
We had a successful trip to see Santa tonight! Auntie Em joined us since Daddy was working. We planned ahead and made a reservation (best thing ever!) and got there early. Juliette was so chill the entire trip to the mall! When it came her turn to sit on Santa's lap, she was totally cool with it! She showed him her Mickey train and Skye from Paw Patrol and all was well. Pictures turned out ok...unfortunately, Santa blinked in a couple. At least Juliette looked adorable as ever!
Auntie Em was able to capture the last picture...with both of them looking at the camera! Thanks for joining us Auntie Em!!!
We took Grams to visit the Bulow Plantation Ruins last weekend. The park is gorgeous and the sugar mill ruins are just magnificient! It's definitely worth the short drive from St. Augustine! Juliette loved running around...she is definitely an outside gal!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I am happy to say that Juliette LOVED it this year! She got the whole saying "Trick-or-treat" thing down fast! She eagerly raced from house to house. She carried her basket the entire time and was fast to tell us she did not need any help. She got a good amount of candy...and being Juliette, she did not eat any of it! There's always next year!
p.s. Aren't Juliette & her boyfriend Harrison adorable! Save the date!
To backtrack a bit...Juliette was not so excited at first to put on her costume. It took a little while for her to get into character!
We traveled this weekend to South Carolina for my Cousin Mike's wedding. Grams tagged along as we drove to Columbia for the wedding festivities. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and the bride, Sarah, could not have been any more beautiful! It was so nice seeing all of the Schroeder clan!
We decided to tour some historic old homes in downtown Columbia. Juliette went along for the ride and did well. She wasn't really into the houses, but she did her best to pretend like she was.
In Charleston, we met up with one of our favorite peoples...Robyn! Robyn took the day off work to hang out and show us around. We walked around and saw all the beautiful homes in Charleston, took a horse & carriage tour, had ice cream at Jeni's (finally!!!), ate breakfast at Hominy Grill, walked around the Charleston City Market, and shopped on King Street. We can't wait to go back!
We LOVED walking around Charleston. The houses were all amazing!
Juliette with her fav new toys...Blaze & the Monster Machines
Juliette was not quite as excited as we were to eat at Hominy Grill...
The Schroeder Aunts & Uncles...and Juliette & I
Juliette has been in daycare for a full year now! I remember the first day like it was yesterday! To celebrate the last year, here's a look back on some of the best daily daycare reports Juliette received this past year...
On a good note, she is SOOOOOO cuddly now! She sure does keep us on our toes! Keep the hillarious reports coming kiddo! We love you!
Life with a 2.5 year old is CRAZY! Juliette is nonstop on the go. She is so entertaining and become quite the little jabberbox! As of late, she is into dinosaurs, choo choos, snakes, Chuck (duh), coloring, her "Go Cards" shirt (which she wears 4+ times/week), mac 'n cheese, ice cream and stickers (which she plasters all over her legs).
I love St. Augustine! This past weekend, Juliette & I played tourist in St. Augustine. For the month of September, St. Johns County residents ride the trolley and get into some museums for free. So we rode the "choo choo" and visited Potter's Wax Museum. Juliette loved the choo choo and wanted out of the wax museum after five minutes. Juliette's favorite part of the day: all the free stickers.
Another fun activity as of lately...potty training. Juliette loves to sit on her potty and she loves having us (Mommy & Daddy) sit on the regular potty and entertain her. Some days she can sit there for a solid hour, other days she wants nothing to do with the potty. But she sure does love to tell us that she's gone...after the fact.
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jen and I am the proud Momma of Juliette Margot! We are so blessed to have a healthy and happy baby girl. Check back often and watch as Juliette grows...you never know what great adventures are ahead of us!
