From what I understand, the "strong girl" impression has been a Harding Family tradition. My sisters and I did it as kids, and ever since Sophie was born, we've been trying to get all the grandkids to do it. I'm not sure why this cracks us up so much......BUT it certainly does! I got a video of Anna doing her impression about a week ago. Not too shabby, kiddo!!

|LOVE this one!!|
On Saturday, we took a trip the the farmers market downtown and had Grandma's birthday party! On Sunday, we had a park play date, Grace got to go to the theatre to see the Smurfs, and we had our first big fall meal of the year! The girls got in LOTS of play time with Grandma and we're already looking forward to her next visit!!

Grace is what you might call a bit of a performer and might even LOVE a crowd! She loves to dress up and dance around especially to "princess songs." I knew I wanted to sign her up for dance this year and was SO excited when I found out about the classes at Gym Bugs. The class for her age is an intro to ballet and gymnastics AND the teachers let them dress up in princess dresses at the end of class!! SCORE!!!
We're about a month and a half into dance class now and I have SEVERAL videos to share with you! The teachers let the parents come in at the end of class so the girls can show off their stuff and I've gotten a video each week. The studio puts on a recital in December and I'm sure Matt will put together a video showcasing each week. The picture below will have to do for now. This was taken before her first class. She wasn't excited at all!! :)

|Dinner on our first night!|
|Apparently Maritza missed the gray memo!|
We took off early Friday afternoon and were all SO excited!! This was a group of moms who don't get out too often. And having TWO WHOLE NIGHTS to do whatever we wanted, almost made my head spin just thinking about the possibilities of things we could do!! Did we want to go, go, go? Or maybe we should just lay around and watch movies the whole day.....I don't think so!!
|Ready to shake it!|
|Oh la la!!|
And then it was FINALLY time!! We had waited on this ALL summer long!! It was time to head out to the concert and shake it like we've never shaken it before!! WHO HOO!!! I won't bore you with all the details and tell you that Keith didn't disappoint and put on his best concert yet!! We danced our booties off and then realized.......IT'S ONLY 11PM!!! WAHOOOO!!! And since we're VIP's, we had a table reserved for us at Tootsie's!! That's how we roll!! Annnnnd, it helps to have connections! Thanks again, Kay!! The band was fabulous! I'm quite sure we looked like a SNL skit after each song we'd look at each other and said, "OMG!!! I LOVE THIS SONG!!" WAHAHAHA!! Good times!
The next morning when I first got out of bed, every joint snapped and every bone creaked! I guess that's what happens when you're 32, dance for 5 straight hours, and think you can go to bed at..........TOO LATE!!! :)
We had a FANTABULOUS time in Nashville!!! It was a much needed get away and would LOVE to do it again SOON!! Next time, we'll have Lauren (no more babies for a while :) ) and Erin (take your vitamins!) joining in on the mischief!! Maybe in late October for Erica's birthday??????
