We had a great Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday was Troy's good friend Lauren's Birthday Party. It was strawberry themed, the kids planted strawberry seeds, threw water balloons, and had a race where they had to keep their strawberries on a spoon. Everyone had a great time. Sunday, we went to the beach with friends and had a nice cookout with the neighbors. Monday, the boys played outside and the girls went on their first Mommy Daughter shopping trip. I'm sure the first of many! Since our little pool had a crack it was time for a new one. Troy LOVES the one we got.
We are on day #3 of potty training and accident free! Its 93 degrees today so after a short trip out of the house, Troy went on the slip-n-slide while Rosalie and Mommy relaxed in the shade. Life is good here!!
We've had so much fun with Nick here. Today we spent just around the house but having a blast. Im going to miss having his help during the days and Troy has been attached to his hip the whole visit. Luckily, he will be coming back atleast one more time this summer.
One Really Big Strawberry
Troy had a wonderful birthday. From Mommy, Daddy, and Rosalie he got a Jumperine as he calls it. (Trampoline) We waited until he went to bed the night before and assembled it, since we ran out of sunlight we waited to put on the net until today. Troy LOVES it, we literally have to drag him off it. Troy had a great Birthday Party too! It was Cars themed, of course! Despite the rain everyone had a great time. We made cars and played Red Light Green Light and Nick was the "MagNICKcian" performing various magic tricks for the kids. The rain couldn't put a damper on this great day!

"Untel Nick" as Troy calls him, is in town this week. We are having such a great time with him here! We've gone shopping, the playground, and the beach already. He is even going to be a Magician at Troy's Birthday party. We are trying to convince Nick to move to Virginia.
Troy "The Ladies Man" made a little friend at the beach. Uncle Nick taught him well.
Daddy wanted to spend his Birthday at home relaxing and thats just what we did.

Aunt Trish, Uncle Mike, and AnnMarie are in town for Casey's graduation from CNU. We've had fun spending lots of time with them. Troy and Angelo played miniature golf with them, we went out to dinner a few times, and the girls all went out for pedicures one evening. Its been a great visit.
