Sol’s Gotcha Day was full of fun celebrations. It was also my cousin Rachel’s birthday too, so we had a little Mexican fiesta last night to celebrate and then I pulled a late night drive back home with the kids.
As part of Kelley celebration tradition, we had cupcakes for breakfast. My new favorite way to ice cupcakes: I mix three different colors and then load them in my piping thing one scoop of color at a time…what you get is swirly icing awesomeness.
Rebecca celebrated with a cupcake and a happy cup of coffee. I soooooo wish I liked coffee.
I personally think cupcakes for breakfast should be okay for everyday. I would be the coolest mom ever…or the most unhealthy Isn’t everyday worth this kind of celebrating? I think so.
We also did a little swimming. Rebecca’s neighborhood pool is literally like one minute away. Full on run-as-fast-as-you-can kid distance.
I remember when Grant was smashing his 1st birthday cake with his little chubby baby hands…now he’s huge and a total young man. Dang you time.
Rebecca and my younger, 16-year-old cousin Hannah took me to a little piece of heaven on earth called Charming Charlies. Why have I never been and why is there not one near our house? It’s a colored coded…wait for it… accessory store. Crazy cool right? I could have spent hours, upon hours there. I may be easily impressed, but it completely blew my mind. My favorite section was the green.
I found several really rad items. Like rainbow rain boots. $4…thank you very much.
Harper and Natalie rocked these very well.
And ginormous lightning bolt earrings. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t need purple rhinestone lighting bolt earrings the size of your face. Don’t be jealous of my beautiful hair
And a large muli-colored ring the size of my pointer finger. Sadly, the earrings and ring did not go home with me.
We did get Rachel a cool birthday gift though.
For dinner we celebrated Rachel and Sol with Mexican…their favorite.
Then we hit the road for home. Bell was sad to see us go and tried to make her escape.
Today, well today my nerves are a bit shot and my anxiety level pretty high while we wait for some important news on Amon and embassy and I’m nursing a killer ear infection, so we spent it playing some ever important skee-ball and other mindless games, while eating pizza. #Nohatershere #ChuckECheeseiscool
And that is that. Hope you have a great, great weekend. Enjoy it.
