Deutschen Pfest


We went to our first ever Deutschen Pfest and we had tons of fun!  They got to ride on a (shuttle) bus...


...which apparently is totally exciting:


We started the day at the parade:


And then we had to get festival food, of course!  All of us got to try our very first fried oreo.  Mmmmmm....


The kids played on the bouncy houses in the kids area for a long time, and then on our way out we passed a stream that kids were wading in... so we decided to join them!  It was pretty hot out and the cold water felt so amazing on our feet!


Chase led Chloe out into the part she was a little nervous about and they collected shells together:


Awwww....  My precious babies!

Mother's Day

I had a great Mother's Day this year. Chase's class had a special Mother's Day program so I took the day off to pamper myself with a massage and pedicure, then headed over to the school for their adorable little program.


After the program I was presented with a cake that Chase decorated for me!


That night at dinner we all got a piece and Chase leaned over to Chloe and said, "Chloe, know what the best part is?  There's LOTS MORE so we can have more tomorrow!"  I sheepishly looked at him and said, "Uhhhhhh....  No there isn't."

Yeah....  The cake was gone.

Hey!  It was mine!!  The kids proceeded to scold me and didn't allow me to have any more treats the rest of the weekend:


Luckily they're pushovers.  This photo was taken the next day:


Happy Mother's Day to meeeeee!!!!

Ready for Summer!


We are soooooo ready for summer! I found out our neighborhood pool opened May 1st (I thought it would open Memorial Day), so we took full advantage!


Chase had way too much fun acting out his own one-man horror show:


Chase lost another tooth...


...but he dropped it in between the seats in the backset of the car, never to be found again.  Tears.  But he wrote a note to the Tooth Fairy and thankfully she was understanding:


It's almost summer!  Woo hooooooo!!!!
