Fun In the Sun

We've been having fun with our friends, trying to suck the marrow out of spring before the summer kicks us in the teeth with its heat and humidity. So we've been at the beach, at the park, at the bayou, anywhere we can. Plus, Kevin and Stellan enjoyed the Father & Son campout. (We girls watched Newsies and grilled salmon.)

Powerpuff Rachelle

Thanks to Netflix Instant Streaming, my children have fallen in love with the Powerpuff Girls. In fact, as I was telling Rachelle a bedtime story, she jumped in with her own personalized casting of the Powerpuff Girls. Roles are as follows:

Rachelle: Blossom
Daddy: Bubbles
Mommy: Buttercup
Stellan: The Professor
Annie: The Mayor

May Day

This is not a distress signal. It's our annual May Day Sundae Party. As kids, our parents asked us if we wanted to create our own family tradition. So we decided we wanted to have ice cream sundaes for dinner as our tradition. The next "holiday" we could think of was May Day, and so a new tradition was born.
Now with a family of my own, we're happy to carry it on with our children and our friends. And their children. No one looks like they're complaining...
