A few busy weeks

I apologize for the lack of fresh conversation, but the last few weeks have been jam packed!!

The school year came to an end and as you fellow parents know, it is a marathon of events. Piano recitals, gymnastics expos, last day performances, parties and more! Too many to mention and show, so we'll stick to some highlights:

We had a family party in the rain and the cousins were having so much fun on the teeter totter that they got their Poppa involved! I love these pictures. They had such a good time together!

Both MAP and Little Miss play piano, so there was a piano recital.  I came downstairs to find MAP self styled and posing for me, all ready to go. Is it me, or is he channeling Tom Cruise in Risky Business?

Then his Nonnie got into the act.

And then Boomer photo bombed them! Silly dog!

Off we went to the recital. They played beautifully!

MAP insists on not having his music present when he plays.

Then we had field day! It was rained out the first time, but the second scheduled day was incredible!

Here is Little Miss O with her egg at the egg race.

MAP getting some major air during the sack race.

After the bucket brigade, the annual dousing of the students and the head of the school!

A very soaked MAP in his team t-shirt.

Little Miss having a blast! Love that we can see her missing tooth space. Such a rite of passage. : )

Then it was time for the last day. My two went all out fancy. Not my idea- completely theirs. It was raining, but that didn't deter them. They just asked for umbrellas. Aren't they the sweetest?

So that is why I've been out of touch for the last few weeks. It's been a whirlwind! Now on to fun summer activities! Crafts, knitting, outings and more! 

Stay tuned.

And, I would be remiss if I didn't give a Meow-out to the newest member of my extended family - this little cutie is named Pumpkin and now belongs to my little sister. (who will tell me to mention she is the best little sister, but as she is my only sister, of course she is the best!) Enjoy her! 

Summer on!

  1. I love this post. The pictures of the kiddos are wonderful. I can't believe how grown up they are getting. It brings (happy) tears to my eyes.

    Pumpkin wants to thank her auntie for the blog shout out. Also, I thank you for the mention of being the best little sister. Even if we had other sisters, you I would still be the best. ;)
