Maya's 9!!!

Maya celebrated her 9th birthday on the 9th. We had great weekend. One thing she wanted was a free no boys day. I don't know how she managed that one, but the boys headed out for our Father/Sons Outing. They left after school on the 8th and the girls headed out for our girls night out. We went to BuildaBear before we headed to a movie. We saw Monsters vs. Aliens. Saturday after going to walmart so I could do a little shopping and Maya could get a present with some of her birthday money we came home where she decided that she wanted to ride her bike without training wheels. When that girl wants to do something, she does! We had pizza with the boys for dinner and had her birthday cupcakes, followed by a movie-Hotel for Dogs. By then we were all tuckered out from a long few days.

Sunday was Mother's Day. It turned out to be a nice quiet day. We had a great meal that daddy made, cute cards and gifts from the kids and a nice long nap after church. I just love being a mom.

We celebrated our 13th Anniversary this weekend. I can't believe it has been that long. We took the kids to Night at the Museum 2 and had a blast. Saturday was a laid back day and in the evening we went out to Red Lobster for a nice yummy meal. Josh commented that for what we paid we could of had a nicer fish fry at home and that man he misses that food down in Mexico. But he says that on a daily basis though. Nothing new. Crenna made a cookie cake for us for our Anniversary. Maya frosted it. It was super yummy. I love that she loves to bake too. My big helper. Monday was Memorial Day and we just were lazy. Kids played outside, mom laid around for most of the day, but we are going to the park so that Mom and Dad can play tennis, while the kids play at the playground. I also bought poppers so the kids could play with them in the front yard. Good times.

Weekend Expedition!

We haven't done much lately, just the same old same old. We have been enjoying the sunny weather and warmer temperatures. Well, not 80 degrees, but pleasant 65-70. In my opinion perfect temps. The kids have been riding their bikes and playing outside with neighborhood friends.

This weekend we were hoping for sunny weather, but it decided to drizzle. Around here that doesn't stop anyone though. We had thought to go back to the tulip festival, but I was not up to the drive, so I had heard of a really nice beach with a lighthouse and playground just west of where we live. We got our umbrellas and took off. We checked the lighthouse off and got a map of all the lighthouses in the area. I think that will be our new expedition we can do on the weekends or this summer. Love free things. After we took our picture we went over to the playground so the kids could get some energy out and I checked out the water to see if I could see any starfishes. There is supposed to be a tidepool with them, but I think the tide was high because we couldn't find the pool. Maybe next time. It had pits to have fires, so I think we will go back and have a little fun with smores and a bbq. I'm loving that there is more than 2 things to do up here compared to the few same things in Mexico.

We wish all the mothers and the mothers to be a Happy Mothers Day on the 10th and a big Happy Birthday to Maya on Saturday who is turning 9. Love ya honey!!!
