First Sunny and warm day at the Park!

Today after school, Julie, Rachel, and I went to the Gerry Park. I had promised Julie we'd go friday after school if she could go the whole week without any zaps at school.........well, she was a good girl all week at school and no zaps! So mommy kept her promise and we went to the park......the park in Gerry that Julie hadn't been to yet......she didn't have as much fun as she thought, due to the fact that she was feeling a little under the weather and was a little tired as well. She did have some fun as you can tell by the pictures!

It was also a first for baby Rachel to be at the park this year as well! First ride in the baby swing, first time crawling on the grass, and first time watching big sister have a little bit of fun as well.

An Evening with a Princess.......

Today when Julie got home from school, I was going thru her notebook like I always do to see if she has any homework.....and inside there was a note from school. The library was having a story time with the Dairy Princess tonite......she was going to read some stories, play a couple of games, and learn how to make butter! I asked Julie if she wanted to go and of course she said, "YES!" So, that was it! We were going! We got there, and there was just a couple of kids from her school that she knew, and a couple of other older kids.....it was an okay turnout. (Hey, it's just an out in the hicks country library, what do ya expect?! LOL!) Well, it's good it was just a small group. The Dairy Princess was Lynette Chase, and she read some stories to them, played a game, and then came the exciting part for the kids...making real butter out of heavy cream!! BY THEMSELVES!! They had a blast!!

The princess poured just a little bit of heavy cream into plastic cups for the kids, then had them put the lids on tightly, and then shake them til they couldn't shake them any longer, lol!! (They did this in pairs so each child could share the job!) It was so fun to watch! What a neat idea to have the Dairy Princess come and read and share some fun lessons too! This is something that Julie will remember for quite sometime!!

Chuck E. Cheese Day!

Just one of those kinds of days!! Yep, that's right, it was a Chuck E. Cheese type of day today.........we hadn't done anything special over Julie's vacation (she only had a week), so we decided we'd go to Chuck E. Cheese in Erie, Pa. What a fun time Julie had there too!! Grammy went with us to make it even more special! (I think Grammy had fun playing games too!) We also got to go shopping at ACMoore's and Michaels (two of mommy and grammy's favorite stores, LOL!), Babies R Us, and Target. Julie found a Playdoh spaghetti maker......it's really cool!! She also got a couple of Color Wonder coloring books and markers......Wow, these are amazing!! Why didn't I get her these sooner!! LOL!! Then mommy and grammy found some scrapbooking stuff. Mommy needed a couple of albums to START putting pages into...I have a few drawers of pages so I think I need to get them into albums NOW! Daddy made the mistake of telling mommy that she could go on a shopping spree!! Good thing mommy doesn't spend alot of money anyhow, otherwise we would've been in trouble!! LOL! We had a very fun day and it was just gorgeous weather as well, so that made it even better!! On the way home we took the scenic route after hopping off the expressway at the state line, found a McD's to get an ice cream cone, and then drove the back roads thru Amish country all the way home! Wish I had had my camera with me!! Next time!! That's all for today folks! Cya soon!

Easter Weekend

Wow, that's all I can say is Wow!! We had a GREAT Easter weekend!! Daddy was off on Good Friday along with his usual weekend off too....it was great! Three days off together to spend as a family! Friday evening Julie and I colored Easter eggs and had tons of fun! We didn't have too many eggs, but enough that we had fun! Here are some pics!

Then on Saturday we went to Allen Park for an Easter Egg Hunt.....Julie met up with her cousins and her bff Cassie, from school, at the hunt......good thing I got a couple pics beforehand cuz there were waaaaaay too many kids and parents there to get a picture when they were searching for eggs!!! Here are a couple before the hunt, and a couple while playing on the playground!!

After the egg hunt, we went to Lukeus's 5th Birthday party! Here is a pic of Lukeus opening one of his presents....there were alot of kids there!!

Here is the cake that Kassi made and frosted...supposed to be a train, but she called it her "train wreck!"

and here is another cake that Kassi made, but I frosted....she didn't like me too well! LOLOL!!

Finally on sunday, we spent a quiet Easter sunday at home after going to church in the morning! The girls found their Easter baskets before church in the morning, had an egg hunt after church in our backyard, and then we had Easter dinner. Here are some pics of this special day!

Relaxin' Saturday

What a great day today was! I got to sleep in, spend time with Julie and have a girls day out with her, spend time with my nieces and nephews, then come home to my hubby and precious little baby Rachel! It was such a windy day today, but the sun came out after awhile and it was just so beautiful out, even though it was freezing!!

While Julie and daddy were playing downstairs, I brought baby Rachel into my room while I cleaned and organized my scrappy area! And boy did it need it!!!! Here is a pic of the newly cleaned table!

Now, after I get Julie and Rachel to sleep, Mommy is going to go into her room and try to get a little bit creative! I have challenges from Two Spotted Dogs to do, or Birthday Bash Crop challenges from Scrapbook Doodle to do, or I have some challenges from My Sketch World to choose from...........believe me, there are tons of other places too, but these are the ones that I am working on right now! Well, that's about it for tonite. If I get scrappy, I will try to post pics tomorrow! Peace out!
