LPA Regional: Day 2

For day 2, there was an activity room provided for the little-little's for the parent's to attend the various meetings planned for the day. There were a lot of little-little girls! The boys took over in the teenage department!

Taking some time to enjoy the weather before the DANCE!!!!

And, the most popular girl was...Lilah! Ok, so I'm biased, but she was a hit! I am SO thankful that the Sunflower chapter was able to host this regional, we both had an absolute blast!!!

LPA Regional: Night 1

This year, the Sunflower Chapter was excited to host an LPA Regional meet for District 7! Our area has not hosted one in Wichita for almost 7 years! The hotel we were at worked very well with the needs of those who were attending the conference. We had a blast both days of the conference and I know I am looking forward to many more LPA Regional, District, and National events. Lilah is at the prime age where she is able to gain information from other LP's at the conferences.

I have been waiting to take her to larger Regional and National events because I believe they would have benefited me more than her because of her understanding of knowledge. I have relied heavily on our POLP groups and social networks to handle situations on my end as a parent, but now that she is older, I believe she will want to know their are others who are just like her in stature. She will be able to talk with other LP's, relate to stories and various issues that I will not be able to relate to.

This conference really opened up my little girl socially! She is growing up so fast!!!

Petey, reading a personal story to the girls.

There was a quartet competition in the hotel the same weekend we were there. This group GRACIOUSLY sang for us not once, but twice during the weekend! They were excellent and it was fun for both the adults and children!

My runner!

Taking some time to walk the River and take pics

Katie showing the other girls how to do cart wheels. Looks painful, but she managed to do this for hours! Lilah is practicing to be just like Katie- ahhhh!!! *Can we say mom's pulling her hair out at the sight of this?!*

This is an AWESOME chair that was made available for the silent auction, which I bid upon and won! This is a pretty awesome chair that holds up to 160 lbs., which means Lilah will have it for a very long while!

Girl power! They had so much fun together! 

Sesame Street Year 2!

Another year of Sesame Street fun! This year, I decided to take my 2 nieces plus Lilah because I thought they would LOVE to go since Lilah enjoyed it so much last year. On our way there, one of my nieces had a different point of view and decided she did NOT want anything to do with big characters in costumes! Her brother took her place instead, which was still fun!

We started the adventure with a trip to eat, then off to the show!

"Auntie, are those real people inside of costumes?!"

Hopefully at 5 years old next year she will still want to go to this type of show!
