May 4th..... Happy birthday to the best dad I know, the best friend I know, the most sexy and intelligent man I know and soon to be HUSBAND! Monday night I had the guys over (Dustin, Bill, Tom, Joe, Cole and I) cooked dinner and watched the game. Definitely a low key night but I love having people over and a birthday is the perfect excuse :) Cole's actual birthday night we went out to dinner with my family and the Price's to Syros, Cole's favorite! It's fun to get both the families together and Chris and Julie got to enjoy the evening kid free! The boys were missed dearly but it was nice to have some uninterrupted conversation!
May 6th... Performance Driving School officially became ours! I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are for this new adventure and how happy I am to see Cole so ecstatic. He loves the kids and actually has quite the knack for teaching/instructing. Frank and Joy Mansfield have been complete angels through the whole process. It's great to have someone that we can trust and come to with any questions that have been in the business for several years. The fact that this fell into our laps, at the most perfect time, with such a perfect fit for us is such a blessing and we couldn't be more thankful!
May 8th... My very first Mother's Day! :) That's all I have to say about that. What an amazing label. I would say job, and it is work, but its a job I wouldn't trade for the world! I love my family to death and can honestly say I have never in my life been so happy. God keeps showing me everyday something to be thankful for and I can't help but be so excited for our future! My boys spoiled me and thanks to them I get the WORKS at THE Chrysalis Spa! Ahhh.... One of my favorite places is that steam room and it is calling my name!! :)
May 10th.... Happy birthday Cruiser! We didn't end up doing anything on the specific day with him being a work day but we did celebrate later! I called bright and early to say happy birthday and he says 'man everyone is calling me' haha popular boy I'd say! :)
May 19th.... BIG day! Happy birthday Brodes and Kader! Its so cool that as cousins they can share their day. Maybe as kids not as cool but as parents it's pretty cool :) Jules told Brody it was Kades birthday too and he wasn't too fond of the idea however, when Julie Crew and Brody came to pick Kade and I up for the park he couldn't wait to tell me it was Kades birthday and Happy Birthday to Kade! :) Sweet and Sour is the perfect description of Brodes.
I couldn't find my camera when I left the house so I had to take this from Julie, but we went to Boulevard Park for the boys birthday and got beautiful weather! Meghan and Emma and Wyatt met us out there as well. It was actually quite relaxing and enjoyable! Wyatt was great with the boys so us girls got to chat and hang out :) Costco.... Another story! haha
May 21st.... Cruiser and Brodes birthday party! I wish I had some pictures from that day but I was too busy talking or taking pictures for Jules! :( I figured it was more important for her to have picture on her camera and a girls only got so many hands! Chris and Julie ended up renting a HUGE bouncing gym for the party and that served as entertainment the whole day for the kids! Pretty sure they packed up every single toy that had wheels as well. Too many to count by the way! After most of the kids had left I took Kade into the bouncing gym... not going to lie I couldn't wait to get in there! I now have an excuse to do all of the kid stuff and watch all the kid movies and claim to be a good parent that just wants to include my baby! haha Selfishly guilty! Anyway, he LOVED it. I can already tell he can't wait to be chasing around his crazy cousins!
May 22nd..... KADER'S 1ST BIRTHDAY PARTY!!! I'll do a special post for this one otherwise this one could go all day! :)
The kicker to all of this is that the wedding is now less than 3 months away!! I cannot wait any longer! :)
