My birthday & the beach

My birthday was last Thursday. I started the last year of my 20’s. I can’t believe that! Time is flying by! I’m going to be 30 next year. I spent the day with my sweet boy & then we had dinner as a family at Kanki. Samuel loved the show as always & it was a wonderful treat. After dinner we went to Cold Stone for ice cream. I had a birthday coupon to use at both places. That was nice! My meal & ice cream were both free! ๐Ÿ™‚ My sweet guys got me new rainbow flip-flops. They are the most comfortable for my feet & I only get a pair every 3-4 years.ย  I received a lot of birthday blessings & cards in the mail as well. I’m so blessed & thankful for all of you! Thank you for making me feel so special!

Then on Friday we left for the beach! Our first beach trip of 2013!ย Unfortunately the weather was pretty cold & windy, but the place we stayed at had an indoor water park. There was so much to do. I think we went down the water slide at least 50 times with Samuel. He would come down & rotate who he wanted to take him the next time. He rememberedย too. It was always the opposite person each time. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was a blast! We have a little fish that just loves the water! We went with Bill’s parents, Nanny & Pappy, & cousin Kristina. Thankful to be with them & that Samuel had a playmate. He’s definitely getting to that age where a playmate would be wonderful (come on referral!!!). We mostly played at the pools & indoor water park, but did go out on the beach for a little bit on Sunday. It was cold & windy so we didn’t stay out very long. We were getting sandblasted! It was gorgeous though & we were blessed to be there & take in the beauty. I LOVE the beach. It calms me & feel less stressed.

Thank you Nanny & Pappy for inviting us!

Helping momma

I’m finally getting around to posting some blog post I’ve been wanting to write. WordPress wasn’t working with me on uploading pics, so I gave up & left it alone for a week or two. It was getting quite frustrating! ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Glad it’s working now.

Samuel is such a little helper to me. ๐Ÿ™‚ He loves to help with whatever it is I’m doing. Which is usually great! This time I was working in the yard a little & we planted a few flowers. He really enjoyed helping me dig the holes for the flowers & putting them in the holes. He wasย a big help. His favorite part was watering the flowers with his Cars water can he got for his birthday! He also used his mini shovel & rake he got for his birthday too. He was pretty proud of his work as you’ll see in one of the pics. He was posing in front of his flowers. Most days when we walk by them he looks at the flowers & talks about how pretty they are & how the are getting bigger. ๐Ÿ™‚

Easter weekend

We had a lot of fun Easter weekend! We started off Friday night with hanging out with our friends Mitchell, Amy, & Lukas! We had a lot of fun eating dinner, playing at the park, & having coffee/dessert at McD’s. The boys had so much fun! Can’t believe I have no pictures! We were having so much fun, I forgot to take any.

Saturday we went to an Easter Egg hunt at church. This year Samuel was in the big kids group, ages 3-5. He found 8 eggs, but that was because he was so interested in opening each egg after he grabbed it. He wanted the candy! This boy is all about some candy! Mommy & daddy hunted eggs too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunday morning we got up early & went to the sunrise service. It was rainy that morning, but we decided to go anyway. So blessed that we did! Service was held on our friend’s covered porch & it turned out great. We headed back home to let Samuel have his Easter basket, eat breakfast, & then get ready for Sunday morning church. We were blessed to have Bill’s parents join us for church. I only got one picture of us together Sunday morning.

After Sunday service we went to the Raybon’s & had an Easter egg hunt. It was a lot of fun to see him hunt for the eggs with my sisters Mary & Gennie. I also found out I can run faster than my sister Gennie. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  Love you!

Then after Granby’s we went to Nanny & Pappy’s house for dinner & more egg hunting! Samuel also made an Easter Story wreath with Aunt Dana. It told the story of Easter. He still likes to play with it now. Dinner was so good & it was still so much fun seeing him hunt for eggs. This year he was the only one to hunt for eggs this Easter. Kristina wasn’t there, but we missed her!

SO excited about his Beyblades!
