Happy Birthday Mommy

We had a two day celebration for my birthday this year.  On Sunday we went to lunch with Grandma and Grandpa at Carrabbas.  The food was really yummy and we had a great time.

So on my actual birthday I was greeted to a full morning of "happy birthday mommy."  It was so nice.  On the way to school, Lily you asked me if it was my birthday today and I said that it was.  You then replied that if it is your birthday mommy, then you get cupcakes.  I thought for a minute and said you know what Lily you are right.  Let's call daddy and tell him that.  So we called daddy and you told him that it was mommy's birthday and she needed cupcakes (oh how I trained you well).

When we got home that night I was hoping that daddy went and got cupcakes, not for me per say, but because I thought you ladies would be really upset, since that first thing you said to me when I picked you up form school was, mommy you get cupcakes today!

We had dinner and then just as promised daddy brought out the cupcakes.  You ladies sang happy birthday to me or was it "Lou", and then we dug into our yummy cupcakes.

Color Wonder Artwork

It was a rainy afternoon and we needed something to do.  I was curious about the Color Wonder sheets that the easter bunny left so decided that it could be fun.  There were five sheets per package so you each picked one.  You then took the special marker and started coloring and drawing.  It was really cool and your pictures turned out so different.  Mommy wanted to get into the fun, so I grabbed one as well.

Kids In Motion

The Junior League of Tallahassee held a wonderful kids and fitness event called Kids in Motion.  We were lucky that Toni and Jennifer could come out and join us.  They had lots of vendors/informational booths.  The fire department was there as well as the K-9 dog.  They had various performers on the stage and best of all they had bounce houses!!!!

Playing with the Gecko

It was an unseasonably warm day, so I thought it would be a good idea to wash the cars again.  But I had something up my sleeve.  Once we were done, we were going to break out the gecko.  Like any smart mommy, I waited until the cars were washed and then told you about the gecko.

the sun had gone away for a few minutes
