My Birthday

Monday was my birthday. Yup, i'm now 43. I don't feel 43, but I know I must be. I'm having my 25th hight school reunion this year. Can't be...I still feel like i'm 18.

Well, I don't want to be 18 again. That was a icky time in life! Life really got better in my 30's and my 40's are shaping up to be pretty good. I just wish this grey patch in my hair would go away!

We spent the day at Galveston's Moody Gardens. The girls love the aquarium. (I do to, the penguins are my favorites!) Here are a couple of shots from the day.

Can you spot the seahorse?

Blueberry Picking

In early June, we decided to go pick blueberries at a blueberry farm in Conroe. Katie was SO excited, she chattered the whole hour drive there!

We braved the 100 degree humid weather long enough to pick 14 pounds of blueberries. At $1.50 a pound, it was a steal! I think Katie ate more than she put in the bucket.

Madeleine was wiped out after 5 minutes!

All in all, we had a wonderful family day!

Welcome to our summer!

Wow! Our first official week of summer has come and gone in a flash! We started off Saturday at the Sweet & Sassy with Madeleine's Daisy troop. They decided to use the last of their cookie money to treat themselves to makeovers and mani/pedi's. They had so much fun!

Our day started with the girls getting a facial and a haircut.

Then on to pedicures & manicures...

Can we say DIVA's!!!

Monday we found ourselves signing up for a ton of different reading clubs. We signed up for 3 different libraries, Banes & Noble, Borders and Half-priced Books. They got to redeem their passports at B&N and Borders today for free books! They were so excited!

Wednesday the girls started their Ballet & Tap class. They love their new teacher!

Thursday I taught my first class in 6 years! I'm teaching 2 science classes for our local parks & rec. The girls get to come with me and are my "assistants!"

We spent today riding bikes, working in our garden and catching up on household chores.

I though summer was suppose to be relaxing....
