My Little Man

turned 5!! To celebrate, he wanted a pool party. How does a mother of 3 pull that off in April? That's just what I was thinking. Lucky for me, I realized we'd be in St. George with a handful of cousins right before his birthday. He got his pool party and I got to have all the parents there to watch their own kids in the water. McKay loved it. (In fact, I think he was one of the last ones out of the pool.) We spent his actual birthday driving home from St. George, so we didn't do much. A few nights later we did his "family party" with mom and dad and his sisters. Jeff brought pizza home and while we munched we watched Madagascar 2 (gift from Grandma A.) We haven't seen the first one, but Jeff and I got several good laughs in on this one. None of us are huge cake fans, but what's a birthday without cake? I finally tried that chocolate cake in a mug recipe for his bday cake. For a microwavable dessert, it was pretty good. Then the best part: Presents!!! I've got one word for you: Legos. That's what it's all about this year. He got a few sets from cousins at his party and a few more from mom and dad. He's also into sharks lately, so I picked up a little National Geographic kids book about them. (Other gifts: outfit and Playhouse Disney cd-G&G A.; bumblebee transformers-sisters; Lightening McQueen art set-G&G M.) He had a great birthday and I think he secretly enjoyed it being strung out like it was.

Best. Gifts. Ever.

Photoshop Elements.

And Travis.

Jeff gave me Photoshop for my birthday. Wahoo!! I'm so excited to learn all about it and do amazing things with it.

Cami and I have birthdays at opposite ends of the same month. Our gift to each other-a girls' night out to see Travis at the Depot downtown. SUCH a good concert!! They were amazing on stage. Their lyrics are full of all kinds of wonderful meanings. The venue was small and quite personable which I love. Here's a little tastes of what we heard last night:

and some more if you liked the above:

(I could only find the video. All I can say is they're British band.)

If I had another baby, I would want to have these kind of baby pics:

This one is my favorite. (It totally makes me think of THIS.)
