May Fun

My first attempt at Granola bars. They turned out YUMMY! Thanks to our dear friends Dana and Josh, R and I were able to go to the great Italian Restaurant, Biaggi's, to celebrate our 9th Anniversary. The kids had fun playing with their buddies, Jack and Henry. And even got to attend their first book Club.

Surprises forthe kids

Surprise #1: I had a very successful garage sale shopping trip yesterday. I found Ellie this cut pink and purple bike for $10 with helmet. She loves it. Surprise #2 for the kids was this great bunk bed. Couldn't beat the fab deal on this one. Ethan and Ellie are so excited to get to sleep in what Ethan likes to call " bomp beds". The last few days they have loved wearing their cousin, John Sheptock Tshirts. They like to pretend they are twins.

Kid's Program 2010 "Away We Go"

The picture below was taken before we left for this evening's School Program of "Away we Go" I've done my best to bribe the kids to do their best tonight. All smiles so far... And then, Its Ellie's first time up on stage to sing. As you can see , much like her brother before her she wanted nothing to do with it.
But this year Ethan decided to turn a new leaf. He was all smiles and songs.

And waves. Yes, they are dressed up as Cowboys/girls.

Birthday Memories with friends

We went out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in Manitou Springs: Adam's Mountain Cafe. They have yummy Organic, local food prepared in artful ways that satiate even the most particular of tongues.
An evening with friends. It was so fun to enjoy.
