Did I Mention Mexico?

With all of the birthdays and baptisms last month I never had a chance to tell you about our fabulous trip to Mexico! Oh, it was heavenly. Just Hubby and I for four nights in Cabo San Lucas courtesy of his lovely employer... well and courtesy of all of his hard work resulting in being awarded 'Channel Manager of the Year'!! I'm so proud.
We spent our days relaxing in our private beach cabana, swimming in the infinity pool, riding wave runners and driving ATVs through the desert and on the beach. The evenings were spent enjoying great food with friends. May I repeat...Heavenly! We stayed at the Hilton Los Cabos and it was fabulous. Everything a vacation should be. I'm sorry to say that I don't have any personal photos.
I will give you a bit of advice though. If you decide to put a bottle of apple juice in your carry on bag which also contains your camera, please make certain that the lid has been tightened securely... better yet, don't do that at all. Just a thought.

Hark! Angels Sing!

Here is a little clip from the Mother's Day Program at Toot's Pre-School yesterday.

(If the music is playing on the blog you may want to scroll down to the bottom of this page and pause it first so that you can hear the video clip. Then again, maybe you don't...)

We got these beautiful matted pictures as gifts.

Isn't my girl just precious?! She sure is growing up fast.

They also handed out diplomas to the preschool "graduates" who will be starting Kindergarten next year. I was so glad she's not in that group yet. I want to hold on to these younger years just a little bit longer.

My Lap Runneth Over

I hope all of you Mommies had a happy, hug-filled Mother's Day!

All Four Seasons

You all know I love Sting, and one of my favorite songs of his is "All Four Seasons" (click here for lyrics or listen here.) I used to think it described me. But I've got nothin' on Toots. That song is really ALL about her. (And I just love her for it too!)

I really hate to brag, but...

...look what I can do!
Just gimme a few more weeks and I'll have that crawling stuff down too.

'Cause You Just Can't Have Enough Birthday

Here is the often requested, much anticipated pirate cake for my big three year old boy.

He was thrilled with it, especially after he discovered the Captain.And he waited oh so patiently to dive into those gifts.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

On Buddy's Birthday we took him and his big sis (per his request) to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. (And yes, we did get to see Nemo and Dory.)Here he is chillin' on the the way there.

They're ready for the Imax movie "Sea Monsters" (Buddy's choice.)

Those pengiuns looked so huggable!

We all had a great time and most of all enjoyed sharing Buddy's special day with him. (Oh my goodness, my boy is three already! Did I mention how fast time is flying?)
