One week down of summer vacation and I haven't heard "I'm bored" yet! That within itself is a good week!!
We stayed busy with ball games and celebrations this week. Here is a peek.
Last week I showed you this....
...and told you I would tell you what it was for this week. That was the silverware that Carrie and I wrapped for a surprise 40th birthday party that I had been planning for my good friend, Jill. Her husband approached me almost a year ago saying he wanted to throw one and needed help. I was totally on it! The hardest part was how to get her there. Jill was having all of her family in for her daughter's birthday and she does not like to leave her family when they are. So what did I come up with? I told her that Kevin and I were renewing our vows, since we just celebrated our 15th anniversary and that it was a surprise for him. She totally ran with it, asking me if I would have flowers and what would I wear? We even went dress shopping!
Here she is after she realized what was happening...
And after blowing out her candles.
If you look close at the end of the table you will see some of the silverware. :)
Made this today for an impromptu cookout with Mom & Dad.
Triple Berry Trifle...YUMMY!!
Ella had a t-ball game today. While this is not an "action" shot, I thought it was cute!
Walking out to center field with a teammate.
And one of her fans reminding me what she think of Ella.
The kids were playing the Wii today and I looked around the corner to see this.
3 of them lounging on the couch together watching the other one play. Who do these children belong to? (and why do they always have red eyes?!)
These are the B.E.S.T. flip flops ever!!
They are made by TEVA and have arch support in them! I'm getting a funky tan line, but the comfort is so worth it! (and yes, I need to paint my toes!)
Went bowling today with our friends, the Lyons. There is a local alley that offers free bowling for kids during the summer, you just pay for shoe rental.
Here are the girls...
And the boys...
The adults bowled too, but no picture of us!
Today we went to two graduation open houses. One of them was for our oldest nephew Andy. This is a picture of all of the cousins from Kevin's side of the family together. (our 4 kids and his brother's 4 kids)
Andy is the one in the hat. I guess you're never too old to give goofy ears to your brother!
Hope you have had a great week!! And for those of you who guessed Ella was a flamingo in her Noah's Ark play, you were correct!
