Summer Fun

I can't believe summer is more than half over! It's gone by way too quickly and I feel like I haven't gotten to do nearly as much as I'd like to with my kids. Here are a few things we have been able to do so far:

Rainforest Cafe

Chuck E. Cheese

Parker's (and Emma's, but no picture) Musical Theatre Performances

Camping with Friends

Swimming Lessons

This is a late birthday post, but I had to document such a fun weekend! My day started with these gorgeous peonies (my fave!) from Derek followed by shopping and lunch at California Pizza Kitchen with Mom and Candice. Derek and I went out to dinner that night. I can't remember the name of the restaurant, but the food was excellent and they had a magician that was so, so good.

Candice has been making me wait until now to go to Olive and Ivy, one of her favorite restaurants. So we got some friends together and she reserved the White Room for brunch - AMAZING! I'm just sure they were thinking of me when they decorated that room. I had a cinnamon roll center (which is deceiving because you think it's really going to be the center part of a cinnamon roll, but really it's a gigantic cinnamon roll that tastes like the center- best thing ever; and we ordered 12 of them), vanilla bean yogurt with berries, and a breakfast sandwich with eggs, cheese, bacon and avocado- yum. Then they brought me a fun dessert with my name and everythin'. Thank you to everyone who made my day so great! It was a wonderful birthday !
