Birthday fun & catching up

I know I have been alittle absent on the blog. I hope to start doing some daily blogging and get back into the routine of things.

Today was my birthday! When you are 33, birthdays aren’t like they were when you were a kid.

My kids are in summer school. Emma is taking PE so she can get it out of the way and not have to take it her freshman year.

Ava is in a kindergarten prep summer school- she goes half day (8-11)

Thankfully in July they are both over and done with! I have been running around constantly since school let out. Ava is also in tball!

Since school has been let out almost two weeks ago, we have been keeping busy and having fun. The Littles went to Indiana, and during that time me and Emma had some one on one time. We went to the plaza for the weekend, explored the Nelson Museum and had great food and enjoyed our stay at our hotel.

We also ventured to city market and got some produce and had lunch at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant.

Last weekend, we went to the drive in, and saw Aladdin.

fast forward to today, my 33rd birthday! We enjoyed the afternoon at home, visited my neighbor and had a really fun time.

My sweet neighbor invited us to pick some of her strawberries. It was so much fun! We laughed most of the time. Jackson didn’t contribute anything to the bucket, every berry he picked ended up in his mouth. The kids had the bucket completely gone by the time we walked home. Evidence of red stained hands, lips and faces were the only signs of the sweet goodness they got to enjoy earlier.

It was such a wonderful time. I enjoy my neighbor so much!

Later, we went to Starlight to see Wizard of Oz! It was such a lovely day today to enjoy most of it outdoors.

We didn’t get home until almost 11. The kids had such a great time going to the play. They didn’t fall asleep at all during it and were on their best behavior. They were really grateful for the experience and really soaked it all in. I have lots of fun memories going to plays. The first one I went to was South Pacific and I was Ava’s age. I remember a lot of it and hope Ava and Cora do.

It’s fun to have them enjoy “big kid” stuff with me and Emma.

Jack stayed with my mom for the evening. Poor guy, maybe next time he will be big enough to go.

I am excited to enjoy the rest of summer. I like to stay busy and want my kids to have lots of fun experiences. I have many things planned, so I hope you can experience them along side of us by reading this blog.

Tomorrow I will post about my garden. It’s doing very well! The weather is going to be so nice this week. It will allow me to get caught up on all the wedding I have missed because of the rain we have had.

I also want to make a post about cleaning products and house hold products I use. We have been using less chemicals and I am really pleased with it! Hope everyone is having a wonderful beginning of June. So many great blessings are in store this summer!
