{1st day of Pre-School}

Well time for my second child to enter the world of school. Isn't she soooo cute. I just love her to bits. She was so pumped for pre-school. The transition has been so smooth for her.

It is a great pre-school. My girl was born Jan.3rd. So she needed something to keep her busy for that extra year she has to wait to start Kindergarten. What is perfect about this pre-school is that it is in the same school that my gr.2'er goes to. YAY!!

{My Birthday Part 2}

What is a birthday without a shopping trip. Tricia and I got up at the crack of dawn after going to bed at 3:30 to go shopping in the good old USA. We whipped down to Seattle Premium Outlets only to find out that we missed the REALLY good deals by about a week. We managed to get some cute back to school outfits for the kids though. We then hit Target, which is always a good stop. We managed to fair pretty well there.

We made a stop at Jugo Juice. WOW was that ever GOOD!!!On my actual birthday we went out for dinner at MONTANA's. A favorite spot for birthdays. I think every 10mins someone was wearing this hat and being sung happy birthday to. lol Don't I look Perty!!

My oldest really thought this hat was funny, so of course she tried it on.
Too bad this pic turned out a bit blury. It really is a great shot.

Back Home for Cake that my mom brought me during the day. OOPS the numbers are backwards they should be 23. ;-)
Notice the $1 bills on the table, they were in my card and then my dad pretended that one was missing so i checked the envelope to find THIS. Thanks Dad!!

Another Birthday GONE!! I planned it myself this year and think that might be the best way to go. That way I know I get to do what I REALLY want to do. It was a great time.

{My Birthday Part 1}

For my birthday this year I invited some of my closest friends out for sushi. We went to this small place in Abbotsford called Mars. It is sooooooo yummy. I wish i could have invited more friends to come but the place was too small for any more.

Another year and I have to admit i hate getting OLDER but I love celebrating my birthdays lol. I try to not think of the number so much hence why i am NOT telling you my age. ;-)

Left to right. Angie, Amberlee, ME, Tricia, Justin, Kelly, Kristle, SEAN(taking pic), Dylan and Jared.
Me and my girls. I sure love you guys!! Thanks for making my birthday wonderful.
I wanted a pic of all us girls unfortunately Amberlee had left before we got the shot taken.

After the Sushi we came back to our place and laughed, talked, told stories and played music until 3am, It was WONDERFUL. I have not laughed that hard in a long time. I literally had Diet Pepsi coming out of my nose from laughing. lol I am so blessed to have such great friends whom I love so much and cherish each and every day. It is so important to have friends that lift you up and I am grateful to have that.

{Shady Lagoon}

Another year at Shady Lagoon in Osoyoos, BC. This was our 5th year and we look forward to it every year. We have had the same spot every time and sad to say that it might have been our last as the family that owns the campsite is looking to make some changes.

We had a fun weekend a lil windy but Sunny the entire time so we can't complain. We spent some time on the beach, ate good food, went for a couple walks and much more as you can see below.
