Happy Memorial Day!

Summer is upon us with a blink of an eye.  Yes, I know summer does not officially start until June 21, but to me, Memorail Day is the unofficial 1st day of summer. I get nostalgic when I think about summer, and have great memories of swimming, long car trips, fruit stands, and just the freedom from not having to go to school.  With 1 week of school left for Michael and Matthew, it looks like they are off to a great start to enjoying their summer!

Show Us Your Life - The Things that I LOVE/Make me happy

I love, love, LOVE my baby boys, and they make me happy.

I love M, especially when he's fighting over dessert with the babies. And he makes me happy, most of the the time.

Going on vacation makes me happy. This is the 7 Sacred Pools in Maui that M and I visited last summer.

Pretty things make me happy, like this pretty red rose.

Hooray for Weekends!

What a happy, busy weekend we've had! It was all about the boys.  They had their last soccer games of the season Saturday so we celebrated with team BBQs.  It was actually "Sweets Fest" for Michael and Matthew since they ate none of the actual BBQ food and all the cupcakes and cookies their hearts desired. Matthew's team, the Little Dragons, won 6 games out of 7, so they had a very successful season.  As for Michael's team, it was not so successful in the winning department.  They were 0-5-2.  But Michael really enjoyed playing this season more than any other season, I think.  Most of it had to do with M being the coach for his team I think. Even though they did not win any games, I think it was a great opportunity for Michael to hang out with his Daddy.  He always wants to make his Daddy proud, much like any other little boys.

On Sunday, we headed out to my favorite place to take the boys, Gilroy Gardens.  It's an amusement park that's perfect for children their age.  I also love all the different trees, flowers, and water features throughout the park. Michael loves going on the roller-coaster.  It was so great to see him screaming and laughing on the ride.  He definitely is his father's child.  Matthew was scared and kept telling M. to hold him tight on the ride.  He later admitted that he was scared that the roller-coaster would go too fast that his seat belt would break and he would fall out. Crazy kid!

Needless to say, we had a busy, but fun weekend. It'll be awhile until I can do anything with them again on the weekend, so I'm happy that they had a good time. The next few weeks will be challenging for me. I am looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. I just can't wait for things to settle down.
