My Birthday Celebrations

This year we celebrated my birthday at the lake. It just happened to fall on a Saturday and we spend every Saturday working on the cabin at the lake. We had a picnic outside and the boys surprised me with cards and a necklace they made for me :)

A few days after my actual birthday my parents took us out for dinner to celebrate (again). We went to a really yummy restaurant - Rge Rd, it was fantastic!

Birthday Cards

Today I have 2 very simple birthday cards to share with you. I used the star and heart from the Perfect Pennants stamp set and the Happy Birthday is from the Banner Greetings hostess set. Both of theses cards came together in minutes and they are perfect for that last minute birthday party one of the kids forgot to tell me about!

Sunday afternoon the boys wanted to make something... so we pulled out the painting supplies and a few canvases and they got to work. Zack had bought himself a bird house earlier that week to paint, so he started with that. Jakob and Levi decided on landscapes for their paintings. I love that my boys are creative and like to make crafts and paint!

Zoo Fieldtrip

Last week I went with Zack's preschool class to the Valley Zoo. We arrived before the Zoo opened, so we were treated to a zoo all to ourselves! 

Lucy the elephant went for a walk right by us - very exciting!

3 little monkeys in front of the monkeys!

The kids all enjoyed a fun morning at the zoo!
