Birthday Cake for Mommy

My birthday was last week and the only thing I REALLY wanted was a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. YUM! So Daddy took the kids and picked one out for me. I actually went along for the ride as well, because lets face it, who can turn down a trip to Baskin Robbins? The kids were more excited about the cake than I was and they sang "happy birthday" to me all day, which was a wonderful present in itself. :)

It is a Strawberry Shortcake themed cake. Chocolate chip ice cream with white cake.

Ballet Class

Kate went to her second ballet class today and loved it. The girls all love these ribbon wands. They are all so cute in their ballerina outfits. She is already signed up for ballet/tap for the Fall.

Mason patiently waiting to LEAVE!!
They do at least have a lego table set up for all of the siblings waiting.

Little Ballerina

Kate is so excited to start ballet class on Wednesday. We went out today and got the leotard, tights and shoes. Now, if we can just keep it clean until Wednesday that will be amazing! She wants to wear it all day. :) We have had a busy weekend. Two birthday parties yesterday, Father's Day today and my birthday is tomorrow! Good thing we like sweets in this house! I tried to convince Brent that we needed a cookie cake for Father's Day for him, but he said he would be ok without it. I was really thinking it was another excuse to get more cake right?!

Trip to Louisiana

We had a great week in Louisiana. Got to see all of the grandparents, cousins, aunts and friends. We were there for the week for swimming lessons, which the twins loved. Mason and Kate are ready to go back for more! Going back to the same pool where I had lessons growing up was neat. Ok, well it really made me feel old. :) MawMaw and PawPaw bought a swing set for their house and the kids loved it. Their feet actually touch the ground on this one, so they could push off some. We got to go to church on Sunday with Della and Pappy, then lunch with MawMaw and PawPaw and the great grandfathers Pop and Daddy Money! We also got to try out the slip and slide for the first time and ride 4 wheelers of course. We had a day trip to Monroe to visit our other cousins, trying out a trampoline for the first time. And Kate had her first sleep over with her cousin Lydia at Della's house. We also had lots of playground time and extra pool time to practice as well.
