The kids just LOVE Pablo, our adopted stray. He is just the cutest and such a little lover. In this photo, Mason was holding him and he reached back with this little paws on each side of Mason's head to hug him!!

I think he was trying to escape here...

clown lips

The other day, the kids and I made banana muffins. They each threw handfuls of sprinkles on them and once they were cool, we put red and white frosting on top! YUM!!

Aubrey wasn't too bad, but I think Alexis decided to decorate herself with it!

Space Shuttle

Yesterday, the Shuttle left Cape Canaveral at 2:01 p.m. The kids (and mommy and daddy) love to go outside and watch the shuttle. The night time launches are the best, but when the sky is clear, we still have an exciting show during the day!

Sorry for the dark picture...again!! It is quite apparent that I need to read the book for our camera! This was taken in front of the t.v. as the shuttle left Cape Canaveral. Then, we ran outside to see the real thing!

Tea with friends

Today, some of my playgroup mommies and I went to the Serenity Garden Tea House for a Mother's Day lunch. It was absolutely beautiful and a much needed day out! It is hard to believe that we have been in a playgroup together for four years now! These woman have become wonderful friends of mine and though we don't get to see each other as often as we would like, I cherish the times we spend together. I love you, girls!

Going clockwise: myself, Danielle, Erika, Christina and Barb

"Look how we've grown!"

Mason just had his "Look how we've grown" play at preschool. As usual, I was in tears watching my little baby sing his little heart out. He was the cutest caterpillar I have ever seen!

~I apologize that these photos are so dark. I have no idea what happened!

solo #1 ~"Butterfly, Butterfly on my toes. Butterfly, Butterfly on my nose"
Mason started his lines and then said "I forgot". It was priceless! But the way he says "butterfly" was the best part of all. He says his "f's" like an "s". So, he said "buttersly, buttersly" He was just adorable and people are still talking about it!

solo #2 ~I'm bringing home a baby caterpillar"

"The itzy bitzy caterpillar climbed up the water spout..."

Family Fun Day

Every year, the fairgrounds has a "Family Fun Fest" which is just amazing! They have every character you can imagine, games, petting zoo, bounce houses...you name it!

This year, when we heard who was going to be there, we knew we could not miss it!

Mason is SO into Star Wars right now! He was in awe!

Just when we thought things couldn't get any better, we read that Strawberry Shortcake was there to tell a story!!!!

Lexi could not take her eyes off "Sabby Cacky" (as she calls her)

swimming lessons

Mason has been taking swim lessons for 2 years with Miss Jenny. We just love her and she is so great with kids! (she is also a teacher at Mason's preschool). This year, we decided to get the girls in lessons as well, since they are now old enough to really "get it". We found that Lexi is absolutely petrified of the water! She does not even like to sit in the bathtub!! I cant figure out where this fear is coming from, but we are going to take it very slow with her and not push the issue. Aubrey, on the other hand, is a little fish! She loves to be in the water.

This was Aubrey's 1st swim lesson
