New York New York

On the beach at Atlantic City boardwalk. we were so hot. It was suppose to have rained so we thought we would get out of town and go to the boardwalk. I didn't think to bring a swimsuit not that I could have fit into one right now. We had fun watching Macy play in the water and just relaxed on the beach listening to the wave for a good part of the afternoon!

On the beach at sunset the night we checked in it was beautiful. I loved the boardwalk at night!

New York was soooooo much fun, We crammed so much in the short time I was there. I was also surprised how much fun I had in New Jersey what a beautiful state. We went down to Atlantic City and stayed over a night and did the boardwalk the mall and the beach, we didn't how ever get to the ginormous outlets that are right there o-well maybe next time.

We went to Smithville which was so darling look at the ducks they came right up to us. Macy was scared of them and I said they are scared of you and won't even come up to you, I was wrong they walk right up to you and pecked you and if you had food look out!

Wicked my favorite show in all the world I could have watched it over and over again this was only my second time seeing it and I would pay 150$ to go again!!!! I loved going up to the top of the NBC building "The Rock" we saw the sun set and the lights come on the empire state building red white and blue for memorial day. We could see clear to New Jersey and the tops of all the buildings so fun. OK Roxie's Cheesecake is better than you know what!!! Cheesecake factory is so yucky in comparison. I'm not kidding I will be craving that creamy ginormous cheese cake for months to come! We loved going to the street fair talk about great shopping. we had the best chicken empanadas and this smoothie was so yummy! I could have stayed all day but we had to get to the show, I guess they do street fairs all summer on Sundays what a fun thing to be walking down the streets "literally" doing what I do best shopping! so thank you marcee can't wait to do it again soon!

Spring garden

Those 0f you who know me, know I can't wait to get out and plant flowers! I love digging in the dirt, I love wearing my cute straw hat from St Thomas, I love pulling up all those little weeds, OK not that last part. Here are some of my beautiful spring flowers. I did sprinkle some seeds out this spring so we will just have to see what pops up this summer.

Austin and Britton both play lacrosse and both have over lapping game. I love to see my little sweet boys (ya right) getting so aggressive and taking down boys way bigger than them. they have learned how to stick with a sport that beats them up week after week, they practice 3 days a week and play on wed. and Saturdays. they have given up friend time, free time T.V. family parties doing homework late into the night and eating dinner at 9:00 at night. I'm so proud of the commitment they made this year. Its so fun to watch my boys grow up physically and mentally, I know its just going to get harder from here.

How Sweet Chauntal and Leif

Last Saturday I gave my niece a bridal shower. She is having an elegant Wedding dinner for family instead of a reception so the shower was open to one and all (about 50 people). She loves bright colors so I chose hot pink, yellow, lime and orange. I loved it, the colors were great and went well with Gerber daisies (my favorite flower). It was all about SWEET. How Sweet Chauntal and Leif. We had an open house and ate chicken salad sandwiches, salads fruit and veg all with wonderful home made dips. Best of all was the dessert table I made lemon bars my yummy orange brownies and mini almond bunt cakes, we had banana bread and Costco cream puffs and her sister inlaw made a darling little cake. I wish we could have had it outside under the two white tents but with the rain we moved indoors. I did hang some of the lanterns inside from the ceiling but I had about 10 more that never got used so sad:( also the cute outdoor urns that never got used.) All in all it went off beautifully and she was so sweet!
