Feeling hot, hot, hot

It has been so flippin' hot this weekend! Ryan had his Tball award ceremony yesterday and just standing outside for an hour left us all very sweaty and cranky. He was supposed to have a game afterwards but it was called due to heat. Thank goodness or there would likely have been some kids sent to the ER. It was even too hot for the pool. Today was hot as hades too but we did get some pool time in. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 98. Summer is here!

Happy Birthday to my dear hubby. Yesterday was his 49th! We celebrated by shopping at Target sans kids and going out to dinner. It was nice to have a date as it had def been a while. Today we had Gam and Pop Pop over for cake. The kids are all about the cake when its someone's birthday. Gam made a chocolate cake from scratch and it was delish. Left all three kiddos zinging for a while too. I did take a few snaps and will post those later. Right now I need to hit the hay.

Oh, btw, I am trying to post everyday. There's a blogging site NaBloPoMo site that has a contest where you blog every day for a month. Just seeing if I can do it or not before I sign up.

Cereal bar beans

So the other day I was driving Ryan to his last day of camp and out of the blue, Kate asks, "Where do cereal bars come from?" Molly quickly replied, "Cereal bar beans, silly." Um yeah, think my kids are obsessed with cereal bars?

So Molly and Kate picked out some new big girl panties the other day. Apparently that is the trick as they have been doing so well with going potty. Yee haw. After 5.5 years of diapers, I am more than ready to be done with them.

Ryan had a big day yesterday. He went fishing with Pop Pop and caught 5 fish! Then last night he went to a Blue Rocks game with his pal Max, Daddy and Pop Pop. I don't think there was much watching of baseball but apparently they had loads of fun.

Ryan has his awards ceremony for Tee Ball tomorrow followed by his last game. Stay tuned for some pictures.

We are loving the neighborhood pool so far. We pack lunch and stay up there all afternoon. I shower the kids and dress them and once we are home they are good and tired. That is where you will find us this summer in case you come a visitin'. LOL

No More Rat Poison!

I am officially off Coumadin! And yes, it is actually rat poison. Not something I knew until I was on it and my doctor told me. Apparently it is put in rat traps, the rats eat it and bleed to death. EWWWW! I guess that would be why you have to be so carefully monitored while on it. Speaking of rodents, I came home from Cirque du Soleil last night and there was lots of thumping and bumping in one of the kitchen cabinets. Yep, a mouse. We did not use Coumadin to take care of our furry friend. Lucky for us he was stuck in a glue trap. Enough with the rodents already.

Cirque du Soleil was awesome! For Mother's Day my mom wanted to see it and I was lucky enough to be invited along. Thanks Mom! We went to dinner and saw the show. Always nice to have an adult night out.

Speaking of nights out, I get another one this weekend. Kev is turning 49! We are going to dinner to celebrate while Gam and Pop Pop babysit. :)
