My birthday

I had a really great birthday yesterday. It started with a very early breakfast in bed courtesy of Miss Magnolia. I am pretty sure she didn't sleep at all the night before because she really wanted to get up with David and get me breakfast in bed. She is so darn thoughtful! In the morning we went to a big indoor play place that had many inflatable jumpy castles and slides with our friends. Keegan really wanted to go on the big slides but he was way to small so yours truly got to climb up time after time and take him on the slide. After wearing ourselves out we went out for a greek lunch (well... I had greek, Magnolia and Keegan had cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets). When our bellies were full we came home, laid Keegan down for a nap and went to work on a cake. Magnolia and I had such a great time making it. I am pretty sure that both of our favorite part was licking the pan of the homemade chocolate frosting! We had a delicious dinner of Indian food and then our YUMMY cake! What a great day!

Momo and Grandpa

My parents were here all last week for a summer visit. I can't say that we had the best weather but we definitely managed to have some fun! While they were here we made homemade ice cream, went to Magnolia's swimming lessons (VERY early every morning!), played outside, planted some herbs and Magnolia got a very fancy pedicure from Momo. David and I were even able to go out on a date one night! Even though we didn't get much pool time due to rain every single afternoon and evening we still had a wonderful time and created some great memories!

4th of July

Happy 4th of July! We had a great day! We had a bike parade in our neighborhood in the morning, made a flag fruit pizza, did some "poppers" in the backyard and ended the day with a special movie night that included popcorn.
