Today is A.C.E.S. (All Children Exercise Simulateously) Day at school so I had to send a "sack" lunch with Kylee. I saw this idea of using a strawberry container over at Whats For Lunch at Our House a while back.
I really wanted to make a cute Cinco De Mayo bento today. But then I ran out of time so I threw together a regular lunch and a lightbulb went off to add a cheese cross! So now I call it a National Day of Prayer Bento!!
Today is Easter at school since they are out tomorrow for Good Friday. Kylee and I made some quick cupcakes last night with little Peep Chicks on them for her class party.
CBob didn't want to smile for a pic this morning. He was ready to get to school for some egg hunting! I sent Easter shaped cojack cheese for his party.
Kylee was all (toothless) smiles today since she got a visit from the tooth fairy last night. (Second visit this week!!) She dressed in her Easter dress today since her grade is going to the nursing home to sing Easter songs and deliver cards.
We had another playday this last weekend. It was like 95 degrees, but the wind was also blowing like 95mph! It was a lot of fun though. The kids love being there all day playing with all their friends and riding their horses. CBob did great in his events, then he got too hot and threw up, all over his clothes. And of course, the #1 mom that I am, didn't have an extra set, hence the nakey pic at the bottom. He ran around from 1pm til we left at 730 with only a diaper on. Well, plus ALOT of dirt. We had to spray him with sunscreen every 30 minutes, so he really was a "dirt magnet." Kylee did great. I didnt get many pics because I forgot to charge my camera battery, so I was trying to preserve as much as I could to get pics of Kylee since I wasnt there for her first one. I videoed CBob's so the one pic I have of him, I stole from Holly again ;). Thanks!
A few weekends ago, CBob was playing out the back door and I found him hooking his cozy coupe up to the spray rig. I ran in and got my camera and followed him around. It was hilarious. He would check the hitch, and then the lights, he even banged on the trailer and hollered at the imaginary cows. His miniature cow dog followed him around the whole time. You think he has seen this done a few times?! (This pics are posted in the complete reverse order that I wanted them posted.)
I had to go to San Antonio for a week for work last month. It was a fun trip, but lots of work and very tiring. I was so ready to get home and see my family and rest! It was hardest on Kylee. She was so sad that I was gone. Here are some fun pics of the trip and a letter that Kylee wrote me at school. (Again, not in the order I wanted, but not fighting blogger.)
Mom and I did the Capitol 10k again this year. This time we were smart and drove down the night before. We did a little shopping and good eating. The weather was great for the race and it was lots of fun. I had a cute pic of myself in front of the Capitol building but my Mommy Dearest has yet to forward it to me. ;) hint, hint.
I am a working mom, married to my best friend. We have a daughter who is almost 7 and a son who is 2. I love sharing things that are going on with us, so I thought this would be a great way to keep you all up to date!
