Kindergarten Graduation

Caleb graduated from kindergarten today! The class sang lots of songs to all the parents and family who attended but the best one was their graduation song. To the music of Sinatra's New York, New York, they all sang, "We're gonna be a part of it! First grade, First graaaade!"

Feeding the Fish

Today I took the kids down to the duck pond in the industrial park near our house. You'd think we like to go there to feed the ducks, right? Guess again. This duck pond is full of hungry and daring fish too.

When they see you walk up to the edge of the water they start swarming along with the ducks and geese. But you have to be fast if you're a bird because these fish are fast! As soon as we dropped a bit of bread they splash and fight for it and pile up on top of each other. They basically jump out of the water. But the most fun thing to do is to just throw out a giant piece and watch them scoot and nip at it all around the pond.

My Birthday Weekend

One year older and wiser too! Well, older anyway. I turned 36 over the weekend and had a fabulous birthday. I've never seen so many birthday wishes! I tried to keep my birthday a secret last year but you know how it is... someone who already knows is always gonna tell anyone who asks (I know because I do it too. LOL!) , so the cat is out of the bag and I think it's safe to say it's public knowledge now. 

I had only one birthday request from my family and it was that we go to The Sweet Tooth Fairy and everyone pick out a cupcake (I have to say, I also got one of their ginormous sugar cookies with frosting and it was heavenly!). Pickin's were slim at the end of the day but we made off with 3 Lemon, 1 Cookies n' Cream, 1 Vanilla Squared, and 1 Chocolate with Vanilla frosting. It goes without saying they were fabulous! We all had to taste each others. I seriously have never tasted better cupcakes in my life! I think they secretly sprinkle each one with a pinch of sin! 

And speaking of sin... my dinner choice was the current local food obsession for my husband and I. Zubs (Pizza and Subs). Logan and I have had Zubs so many times in the past month that I'm worried the owners will think we are stalking them! But rest assured owners of the awesomest sandwich shop on the planet... it's your food we want! I've even begun referring to this place as "Lucifer's Sandwich Shop"! It's SO good it has to be bad! And I would never have thought this if they hadn't started serving breakfast too!!! Give me a break!!! These guys make a monstrosity of a cinnamon roll that is not only irresistible but it is affordable too! $1.99 for a cinnamon roll bigger than my children! Ugh! I should move... somewhere I'm not surrounded by great stuff to eat! Either that or I should just accept my increasing voluptuousness and enjoy.  

Whatever I choose in the end, it was a great birthday with birthday wishes from friends around the world, family surrounding me, and good food to top it off. You can't get better than perfect! And that's what I got!

Birthday Wishes


For Britten's Birthday she gave one request to any and all friends in the general vicinity of this AMAZING shop:

... to go there and eat a cupcake for her. How could we resist?! It was her birthday wish! And we wanted to make it come true... right??? That's the least we could do for her... on her birthday, right? (You bet your sweet bippy it is!) When I'm given a crucial mission to accomplish, and if there are pastries involved... I'M IN! No questions asked!

And so Britten, I just hope it was the BESTEST birthday EVER!!! 

Love ya!
... p.s. The cupcakes this place are the best I've ever had in my entire life!
