So, we've decided to adopt...

On May 29th, Allyson had her gymnastics family night. Her class is called Tumble Bears at Precision South Gymnastics Academy. It's for ages 3-5.
She brought some flowers for her teacher.

There are quite a few pictures. So, I'll keep the captions short.
Fun with the parachute

Balance Beam

I love this one. And, this is her teacher, Ms. Heather.

They made her jump through all sorts of hoops. LOL!
Action hopscotch

Having fun and hanging around! I think the shadow on the mat is cool.

She's learned so much since last August. Her first class was on her 3rd birthday, Aug. 24, 2009.

Daddy helping with marches on the beam.

Her little friend, Bailey, from her daycare class takes gymnastics here, too.

Flipping on the rings ALL BY HERSELF!

And, at the end of the obstacle course, a giant basket ball to shoot through the hoop. Great shot, Allyson!

When we got home from gymnastics, Mike finally got to use his birthday gift for the first time. His birthday had been the day before and I surprised him with this grill. My parents were over for the family night and we grilled steaks and chicken.

Allyson still thought she was at gymnastics.

He got another surprise. A red velvet birthday cake from Publix.

And, here is our new baby! A year-and-a-half-old pug, Reuben.

We rescued him. I heard about a lady that had him but was unable to care for him. When we got him on May 25th, he was so skinny. You could see his ribs. It was heartbreaking! But, he is doing great! He's adjusted to living with us very well. We are already very attached to him.
And, he does a neat trick. Watch the video.

Love all the pics! Allyson is such a cutie. I can't wait to get the girls into ballet next year although I wonder if they'd like gymnastics better. I love hearing her little voice giggle on the video.
