Gabby’s Monthly Memory

Spring has sprung! 💐

It is April…time to celebrate Gabby! Gabby loved the Spring sunshine and the longer days. 🌞 She continued to stay active during her treatment. Easter celebrations, soccer games, picnics, backyard parties all kept her happy and busy during her last Spring.

Gabby is holding a soccer ball in front of her and is smiling at the camera. She is wearing her red soccer jersey and she has a pink flower bandana on her head. We see the soccer goal net behind her and a grassy field.
Gabby is wearing a pink shirt and holding a paint brush up in front of another womans face who is sitting next to her and looking at her with a silly wide eyed expression. It looks like they are joking around while Gabby pretends to paint her face. Their is natural sunlight on their faces.
4 kids of different ages are all standing next to each other. 3 of them are looking off to the right but one, who is Gabby, is looking forward. Gabby has on a blue hat and a flower dress with a pink shall. Two of the older girls are wearing yellow summer dresses and one has a pink hat on. There is also a much younger boy wearing a dark color sweater with a white collared shirt underneath.
Gabby is sitting on a womans lap. The woman is sitting in the grass and appears to be her grandmother. Gabby is holding her hands out and the woman is holding her hands.
