Grandparents are cool

Last night was a very good night for Piper, not only did three grandparents come to the show, but so did Aaron's Aunt and Uncle who are in town from Washington.

When Piper finally came upstairs (she is always the last one...always). She saw Grandpa John (Aaron's dad) and went running to him and gave him a huge hug. It was so sweet. I'm sure she would have done the same with my parents, but she sees my parents nearly everyday, she hardly ever see Grandpa John, so it was a real treat for her. Then she gave Danny and Esther a hug, and my parents a hug. Then we took some pictures.

After we said goodbye to the grandparents, it was time for my to say goodbye to Piper.

She was going to have her very first friend sleepover. She had been so excited ALL DAY long, it was all she could talk about. But....when it was time to say goodbye to Daddy earlier (Only I took her up to the U) she lost it, absolutely lost it. She bawled and bawled, even on the whole car ride up to her show. I finally had to tell her that she needed to stop crying so she wouldn't look silly on stage with swollen eyes.

I tried to say goodbye to Piper, but she was so excited, she didn't seem to care that I was trying to say goodbye, she just wanted to go to her sleepover. Finally, she did the "I love you, but I rock!" sign to me, and that was good enough for me.

It is so cute that she is such a "daddy's girl."

Here is a picture of her and Isabel, they are so ecstatic for their sleepover!

OH, the first sleepover. For me, it was so bittersweet to drop Sheely off for her first last fall. I hope she had a great time!
