This year we celebrated Ari’s 9th Birthday after Riley’s Swan Lake performance since everyone was already together. After the play everyone came over to our house for dinner and cake and ice cream for our big baby girl!!! This year for her birthday since she was going to be going to a new school that was farther away, we decided to get her a phone so that if she ever needed to get a hold of us she could. Or if we were running late then we would be able to call her.
The spring show put on by Benicia Ballet School this year was Swan Lake! Riley was very excited about this because she loves the music from this show. This play is much smaller than the Nutcraker so her parts were longer and more dancing was involved. Here are some pictures from onstage
I can’t believe how fast this school year went by! The kids had a lot of fun this year, loved their teachers and made a lot of new friends!!! This year is also Ari’s last day of school at Cordelia Hills forever since she will now be going to K.I. Jones to be part of the GATE program.
Every year at the girls school they have field day during the last week of school. It just a day when the kids can have fun playing games before the end of the year is over. Every year Dustin or I try to help so with the classes or we just come to take pictures. This time it was just me because Dustin had to work, but I did try my best to get pictures of each girl even though they were going through the stations at the same time. Riley’s class had started upstairs on the field and Ari’s class started downstairs on the blacktop so I had to keep running up and down to keep up with them both =/ So here are some pictures of the girls as they enjoy their field day!
Field day was a lot of fun this year and we can’t wait to do it again next year!!!
This T-ball season went by pretty quickly and Nick did awesome this year! He hit a couple doubles at some games, got a game ball and made a couple of good plays when he caught the ball. He is so excited that this year is over because next year he is going to be playing coach pitch!!! No more t-ball for this big boy! Here are a couple pictures from closing ceremonies.
Good job Nick!!! We are so proud of you and we can’t wait to watch you play again next season!!!
Yesterday we celebrated Irwin’s 80′s themed birthday and it was a lot of fun! Everyone got dressed up in some 80′s outfits and surprisingly it wasn’t too hard to find things for the kids to wear!
I think the girls look super cute in their 80′s outfits and I got their shirts for $3 each at TJ Maxx! We had tons of fun! I just love themed parties! Especially the ones where you get to dress up in
Dustin was having a rough couple days at work so the kids decided to do something fun so that when he came home all the stress about work would just disappear While on Pinterest I saw the idea of a marshmallow fight and I just knew the kids would LOVE the idea. We got the kids ready with their bags of marshmallows
And from the moment he walked in it was pure craziness! The kids and Dustin had such an awesome time doing it though =)
Here’s our video of the marshmallow fight =)
