Stella took swimming lessons this summer. She did a great job! For some reason, she is still scared of the pool lights. We have no idea what that is about, but she has become really brave in the water this summer--as long as there are no lights near!

Stella insisted on being Elsa with Elsa's hair for her dance recital. So...I had to pretend like I knew how to braid. I tried it the night before, and I was able to braid her hair. But, of course, I couldn't get it to work the morning before. After trying a few times at home, I ended up doing it at the dance recital and got it to look "good enough".
Stella's tap number was to For the First Time in Forever, and her ballet number was to Let it Go. She did such a good job. She is such a serious dancer, even though she is such a goof otherwise!

Stella has been going to the dentist for about two years now, and she LOVES it! She always asks lots of questions and loves visiting with Dr. Hicks, the hygienist, and the assistants. She does such a good job brushing her teeth two times a day and can't wait to lose a tooth!

We FINALLY took a vacation! We surprised Stella with a trip to Disneyland. We had such a good time. The weather was perfect, the lines were short, and Stella thought it was amazing. We stayed at the Hilton Anaheim and took the shuttle both days. We visited Disneyland the first day and California Adventures the second day. Stella was really on a mission to get as many signatures as possible from the characters--even though she told us none of them were real except for the princesses and fairies. Every other character was just someone inside a suit. She knew this because, "they didn't even move their mouths." Can't argue with that. Stella didn't want to ride on any fast rides or any rides that went too high. The first ride we went on was the Chip and Dale roller coaster inside of Toon Town. She screamed the entire time. She wouldn't even ride Dumbo! At California Adventures, we HAD to try the Cars ride. She thought that was fun until the sharp turns and fast speeds. She cried during that one, too, but if you ask her what her favorite ride was, she'll tell you it was the Cars ride. We had such a good time and can't wait to go back--in about another five years!
