Picture Post

Well, between Facebook and my other blog, I seem to let this one go a bit by the wayside. So I'll go ahead and post a few pictures of our little man!

This past weekend Daniel and I went to visit my best friend of 18 years! We had a great time!

I found a game called Tip It for 50 cents at a yard sale (shocker right?!)- this game is fun. You use a spatula to move round disks onto pegs and try to keep it balanced. Daniel go the hang of it quick and had a blast!

In other exciting news my baby sister (yes she's 13 years younger than me!) got engaged!!!!!!! We're all so excited for her! An October 16th wedding is planned, just 3 days before Troy and my anniversary! We're all in the wedding - Daniel's ringbearer, I'm a bridesmaid, and Troy is walking Cassandra down the aisle. I wish my dad was here to see this, but I know he will be in spirit!

This weekend is wedding dress/bridesmaid dress shopping. I can't wait!

Water World

This summer looks like it's going to be a busy one - that is if we ever get summer time weather to stay around here. It's been in the 40's at night with occasional frost and today the high is only in the 50's. Please, please bring on summer!!

I signed Daniel up for swimming lessons starting in June. It's a two week course with 1/2 an hour swim time each day. I'm really looking forward to it! I don't have to be in the water which I think will be fun for Daniel! He loves to assert his independance! The class may be a little below him as he already goes underwater and swims with floaties, but the next class up jumped straight into jumping into the deed end, which I would have a heart attack over at this point. Next year, I promise I'll be able to handle it!

We also signed up for tickets to a mobile aquarium at our local library. We're really excited that. It's completely free and a large aquarium brings an aquarium truck to the library. They have several large tanks with different habitats in each. They also have a movie and lots of "touch tanks". Daniel is so into the water world right now. He wants to see dolphins so bad, I think he can taste it. The only issue is that the closest aquarium with dolphins is in Baltimore and almost 4 hours away. If anyone knows where we can go see some, let me know.

Check out my Mother's Day gifts! The plant Daniel planted at daycare and took care of it until he gave it to me!! I LOVE it!! The other flowers are beautiful too and I was so surprised to receive these also! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!
