Grace, Riley and Cassie become part of the Pirate League!

Today, Dj and Jen invited Grace to join Riley and Cassie to become part of the Pirate League. 

Here’s the BEFORE:

and AFTER:

It was lots of fun as Adults and Kids can get made up to be pirates and empresses.  They had six different basic face styles to choose from, but only one taylored specifically for girls.  They still came out a little different as they choose their own nail polish, bandanna and eye patch colors.   It was a great day with her cousins.  See even more photos, by clicking here…

Thanks D!

Grace has a beach day with her Uncle Rod

Grace had a great afternoon at the beach with her Uncle Rod over the holiday break.  The water was cold, but they braved the waves anyway.  We also got some great shells.

And Grace even let us bury her in the sand!  More of the beach day photos are here!
