grandma, nanna, mimi, nona, kiki's birthday

july 24th is my mom's birthday and we celebrated all weekend. i have decided that i like jane calling our moms just plain grandma but my mom is not sure about that, thus the post title with various names we have heard of for kids to refer to their grandmas. feel free to leave your opinion in the comments. anyway, here's what we did...

jane is playing in the water feature at my parent's house for my mom's birthday party. i got to see some of my parent's friends that i hadn't seen in a while and they got to know jane a bit better.
the next day we went to the ogden farmers market and my grandma came too. jane liked to play with great-grandma in the grass while we rested after lunch. this picture she is proud of herself for tackling great-grandma while maintaining control of the camera she likes so much.

learning to walk with great grandma's help. my grandma mentioned that it had been "eons" since she had just laid down on the grass and rested. i'm glad she got to relax a bit with us. while we were there she made sure she bought some local corn because "the kind they sold near her house in farmington was from california and didn't taste that great." we also ate lunch at gandolfo's which thrilled my grandma because they have sandwiches named, "little italy" and others like it which makes them a friend of my grandma for sure. it was a good time.

lastly, we went to a bridal shower for julie and it was during jane's nap time but i wanted julie to meet jane. jane did very well, considering, and she really liked hanging out with grandma and grandma's purse full of toys.

what happened to grandma nini? was that name thrown out as soon as I said it, oh well. I still like grandma nona but that is a double-double or triple-double or double-negative or just plain redundant!

I love the pictures! Jane will have such fun reading all about her life and the people who love her, someday when she can read.
