My date with Monkey

So, Monkey's birthday was over 4 months ago.  I'm a little embarrassed to admit that we JUST got around to doing her birthday photoshoot and date!  But so it is. 


My aunt watched Chick and Moose, and Monkey and I went  out for our special date.  It was very fun...she's a sweet little friend.  We went to the temple for our photoshoot, because I needed pictures of Monkey at the temple for an Easter present that I'm making for her.  It was a rainy day, but had enough dry moments for us to get pictures taken.






Then we ran a couple of quick errands, and went to Dairy Queen for ice cream.



Then we had a little more time, so we stopped for thift store shopping.  I LOVED some Easter dresses at Fred Meyer, but couldn't rationalize spending so much when they don't really NEED dresses.  So we found some at the thrift store ($10 for both...I can handle that).  They don't match (like, at all.  totally different styles) but I guess it doesn't matter, right?

Anyhow, that was our date.  It was fun, because she really is a fun little gal.  She picked out her outfit and hair accessories.

Outtakes:



This statue was her favorite part!
