Summer Vacay!

So happy to be done with school and on summer vacation. We are going on a cruise again and Rachel is going to take swimming lessons and she also wants to take gymnastics. My favorite part is not waking up at 5:30 in the morning, and not having to hear how her shoes don't feel right every morning.

Last day of kindergarten

The last week of kindergarten they had all sorts of fun activities planned. They played with board games one day, brought books and flashlights one day, got to play outside one day, and the last day of school they got to wear pajamas, eat pizza, and watch movies. She is so excited to be a first grader next year. She is doing great at reading and is doing really well in school.

Disney Princess on Ice

For Rachel's birthday, we went to Disney Princesses on Ice. We had really good seats, we were in the fourth row, and she had lots of fun. That snow cone in the pic was 15.00. Stuff was ridiculously overpriced, but we still managed to have a good time.

Rachel's 6th birthday

We just had a family party this year with pizza and cake. Rachel picked out a Hannah Montana cake this year. We had all the grandparents and Doug, Eleanor, Elizabeth and Benjamin. Rachel had lots of fun and got some good presents.

Easter Sunday

We went to church in the morning and then went over to Nana and Papa's house for lunch. After lunch Rachel, Elizabeth and Benjamin got to hunt Easter eggs. I'm glad that they can spend some time together.

Easter eggs

For Easter this year I was off on Friday, and me, Rachel, and Nana went to the outlet mall. Rachel wanted some tie shoes really really bad. I had the stomach virus that Rachel gave to me from the week before, so I still didn't really feel that great. But we found some tie shoes and she was very excited. Although she was acting kind of strange the whole time and crying for no reason at all, which she does from time to time. Then we came home and dyed eggs. Nana was here and Nanny came over, and I think it was too much for Rachel cause she was crying for no reason. She didn't like one of the kits I got to dye eggs with because the colors were mixing. We finally got it all done and she seemed to be happy.
