D turns 5!

you guys. so sorry. I'm such a slacker. I blame Instagram. Ever since i got it and i can upload straight to FB i rarely blog. so sad! i finally got my nice camera out though for Miss D's 5th Birthday. It happened to be on monday after school got out so we headed up to Mac to mom and dads and celebrated her birthday there. Im usually gung-ho with making a nice cake for my kids. This year - totally not into it. Last year it took up SO much time. I wanted to just buy her one from costco but never got there. so she got a regular cake. But really - she doesnt even notice or care as long as there is pink on the inside, candles and sprinkles. SO I'm glad she was happy! She got a lot of fun presents too! some frozen stuff from gramps (my dad), some money she's saving, a barbie microphone, a lunchbox for school and a pink alarm clock from Aunt Jody (she wanted a pink alarm clock for when she goes to school!), a new church bag from grandma, a tea party set from cousin ayla.... i think that covers it! She also got LOTS of balloons which the kids loved.

one thing I'm upset - i didn't take 5 year pictures... so maybe ill do that later.

Happy 29th Birthday To Tom!!
can't believe he's becoming an old man ; ) 1 more year till 30! YIKES!

we made cupcakes for him for after school and will go visit him during lunch> D is requesting that we get him a balloon from the store to take to him. Too bad he has a softball banquet tonight : ( so hopefully we will get to go out for dinner beforehand so we can spend his birthday with him.

we love you! hope you have a great day today! 

also, thank you to my mother in law for giving birth to this man!

Susan Creek Falls

Tom was actually home this morning. Its a rare occasion on saturdays for Softball Season. (is softball over yet, and then is school over??) only a few more weeks....  I've survived this far (barely)... so lets see if I can make it!

anyways - we decided to go hike up susan creek falls on a small trail that we did last summer. The problem this year is the boys were throwing major fits when they couldn't get out (its all rocks and stuff and they would ultimately fall into the no getting out!) and we didn't last long at the actual falls. 

LOTS of new Posts below!!!
