May Happenings

I can't believe May is almost over.  Time is flying!  Here are a few things we have done this May.

We went to the Merrick Fair this month.  The kids love it and we can walk to it so its an easy outing for everyone!

The kids loved the carousel of course!

We all went on the Ferris Wheel together and then Brooke rode the roller coaster alone.

Brooke got her face painted too!  She was devastated when we had to wipe it off.  

This is a random pic from JC Penney.  We went to pic up our birthday photos and Brooke spotted this comforter and declared her love for it.  NOT going to happen but she begged to have her picture taken with it so we would remember it....

Since its warmer out now we are able to go for walks at night to get ice cream.  Having an ice cream place (two actually) within walking distance is both awesome and terrible at the same time LOL.  I must say this picture was a mild success!  Now we just need to work on Madeline actually looking and smiling at the camera at the same time!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!  Yesterday we had a great day with gorgeous weather.  We all went to a diner for an early breakfast.  The kids did very well even though Madeline ended up eating 3/4 of my breakfast plus all of hers. She's a bottomless pit!  We forgot the camera so we only snapped a few pics on our phones.  Madeline all of the sudden is very into dressing up so please note the 7 necklaces plus 5 bracelets she chose to wear. 

We then headed to a park to run around for a bit.  It's finally nice here and it was great to get some fresh air and some sunshine.  Madeline spent most of her time on the swings and Brooke was running around so much we never got a pic of her!

Of course no holiday would be complete without a group picture.  FAIL.  Madeline was so mad we pulled her off of the slide for this picture that this is all we could get.  Brooke at least looks at the camera these days!

After the park, we came home and I went upstairs and laid in bed while watching "Dirty Dancing".  I even took a short nap!  We ended the day at a relative's house for a BBQ and all kids were in bed by 7.  It was a great day!

Brooke's recital preview

Here is a brief clip of Brooke's costume and dance recital dance!  She is so excited!  It's a little blurry but you get the picture.  Next week we have pictures and get our matching pom poms!

Birthday Party Palooza!

I am way late on this post. I know.  April was the craziest month for us by far.  As the kids get older our schedule gets so full! 

Brooke and Madeline had a joint party at Chuck E Cheese on March 31st.  Brooke invited some of her friends and Madeline had a few there too ;)  They LOVED it.  I know these parties are chaotic but my kids had the best time ever.  Plus I didn't have to do anything but show up with cupcakes.  HUGE BONUS!  Everyone was happy! 

Here are the two birthday girls before the party started:

some action shots of Madeline:

Then  came the birthday celebration.  Each girl got a crown and got to sing and dance on stage:

Cupcakes were a HIT. 

Then of course came the ticket booth.  This might be my favorite picture ever taken:
