On Sunday, we celebrated my nephew Unai's 2nd birthday. The girlies had a great time playing with their cousin and his friends, and Michael and I had fun seeing family and watching the kids enjoy themselves. It was a "Toy Story" themed party, which Maya thought was pretty amazing. The birthday hats had the alien, who Maya kept calling "Graeple". I was impressed with her "Toy Story" knowledge ~ even though she loves the movie and has an amazing ability to tell me all about what happened to each of the characters, she really only had watched the movies a couple of times. But, the next day (when she was once again talking about "Graeple") I asked her what Graeple did in the movie. She said that Buzz and Woody saved the aliens from something (can't remember what!) and then they say "we are ternally graeple". Oh. Oops, guess she doesn't know their names (or what "grateful" means! :)). I looked it up and apparently the aliens are simply known as the alien squeeze toys!
|I tried to catch a candid shot here, because Isaac was being adorable and imitating Sierra's every move. But, she caught me and smiled for the camera before Isaac had a chance to catch up. Cute picture anyway :)|

|On our way to Unai's party. Maya was having a tough time keeping herself entertained, so I pulled out the camera and filled up some time!|
I let her take a few pictures, too. She did a pretty decent job, I think! Of course she had about a 1-in-10 hit rate :)
|Maya in her "Graeple" hat :P|
Turns out Charlotte loves her some cake!
Maya and Charlotte were in love with the doctor kit that Uncle Chris got for Unai :) It's always the first toy they go for at friends' houses, too. Looks like Michael and I need to find a doctor kit for them (because they need more toys :P).
And finally, showing off some more of Maya's photography:
Until next time!
