Friday night with the girls was a blast. We ate, drank, laughed and had a good ole time. We really should do it more often. In fact, I'm trying to decide when we should have the next get together. The Mojitos were a hit too as were Jen's Appletini's.

Saturday was a busy day. Me,Noah and Aiden went to my goddaughter Ella's 4th birthday party. The kids had a great time and Aiden thought he was so big doing the activities with the "big" kids. Ella got some really cool girl toys as usual. I don't get to see the girly stuff much. I should really go over and play with her some afternoon to get my girl fix. Dollhouses, Polly Pockets, princess stuff, I would have a blast with her. Todd and Drew took his scout den out to Dad's cabin and they did all kinds of activities out there towards some badges and cooked out supper there. They had a great time and saw deer, turkey, tons of butterflies and caught fish. It was a great day. I had to work too after the bday party so by the time all 5 of us got home, we were beat!

Sunday Matt took Todd golfing for his birthday which he does every year. Todd always looks forward to that outing and always has fun. Me and the boys had a nice relaxing morning at home. Drew took Aunt Cindy on a "date" that afternoon. They ate lunch at Kelly's and then went and saw Hairspray. Drew liked it even better the second time around b/c he had had all week listening to the soundtrack so he was more familiar with it. He was so excited to take Aunt Cindy and counted down the days till they went. Luckily he didn't have to many days to count down. Sunday night we ate supper at mom and dad's with matt,Beth,Blake,Ty and Nate. We had a good supper and as usual, it was a little loud in the house with all those boys. We watched vacation videos too which was fun and debated over which house plans we liked the most for mom and dad.

Noah had his kindergarten checkup yesterday. He was 41 pounds and 45.5 inches tall. Dr Noble was so good with him, even giving him a "talk" about nutritions, safety, etc. It was so cute. Now we just need to get his shots done and he's all ready. I am sooo proud of him at swim lessons. He is not jumping into the pool off the edge and going all the way under water like it's nothing. That is a HUGE step for him. Go Noah!! And Drew is really perfecting some things too. He runs and dives off the diving board so effortlessly. I could never do that. When the boys all race to swim across the pool he's usually the 1st or 2nd one across. This morning when Drew got up, him and Todd went to the YMCA and swam laps, played raquetball and basketball, and liften weights, plus they rode their bikes there to begin with. I was tired just hearing about it. Then they rode their bikes to the Village Inn for breakfast---I think they deserved it!! Todd really enjoyed that special time with Drew and I know Drew was so excited about it. Noah and Todd will plan something special soon. When Noah woke up this morning, he asked where Dad and Drew were and when I reminded him and told him it was just us three, he said. "Oh good, just like when they would be at school" It made me sad because I realized we wouldn't have those days anymore. It will be just me and Aiden. I know I need to get over it and move on but sending a kid to school all day is such a hard adjustment. And I know it's small compared to the big changes later in their life but I honestly thought I'd have years before the boys were in school and here I have two that will be full time. Where is this time going?? I hate it. I just wish it would slow down just a bit.

I had such a nice date with my Godson, Drew. He dressed so nice, opened my car door, (and any other door he could) and always asked what I wanted, insisting on paying for everything! He has the best manners and is such a gentleman. You should be so proud of the young man you are raising!! Hairspray was amazing...I loved it. We will have to do it again, only this time it will be my treat!

Sounds like you are so busy...How do you moms keep up??
