Memorial Day, Birthdays, Taylor Swift, School stuff, and my kids are still bored?

We spent some time out to the cabin over the Memorial Day weekend. My bro and his family were out there with their girls and my kids were so excited to spend some time with their cousins. It rained a bit so we spent some time hangin out in the cabin and the rest of the time riding the 4-wheelers and bikes and playing in the water. Cassidys birthday was on Saturday so we had some brownies and ice cream out there with my fam. Then Monday night we came back home and had a party here for Brooklyn and Cassidy with dads family. Brooklyns birthday was yesterday so we went to the movies and saw "Up" (really cute!). I think they were all pretty happy although we were in some serious need of some sleep by Monday night:)

For their birthdays this year Halle, Shelby and Brooklyn got Taylor Swift concert tickets. So last Tuesday we loaded up and headed into the big city for the event of the year. Two of my friends and their girls went with us and we had so much fun. We decided to go to Cafe Rio for dinner and then headed down to the ESA. Kelly Pickler was supposed to perform with Gloryanna before Taylor but she ended up getting sick or something so Taylor just made up the difference. It was really an amazing show, worth every dime:) She was so much fun to watch, and the girls sang and danced to the songs. We had such a blast!

To top it off this week has been pretty busy at school, the twins had their 1st grade program and Brooklyn had a County report due on Tuesday. We also had two ice cream parties and one more next week. Wednesday is the last day of school and I am still trying to decide what to do with these children for the next three months. So settle in and forgive me for the numerous amounts of photos:)

Life goes on,

I was thinking that I might actually be excited for this summer, thinking that things might actually slow down and now by the looks of things I'm not sure it's going to do anything but get busier. Oh well! The twins had their 7th birthday and I am still reeling over the fact that they are 7 and even more over that fact that Brooklyn is going to be 10 in a couple weeks aaahhhh!
School is getting close to being out and so things there have been pretty busy. I have been so happy with my girls teachers this year they all are amazing (Halle's teacher is nominated for teacher of the year)! I am so grateful for them all! I have really enjoyed helping at the school this year, the principal is also amazing and they have had so many fun things to do.
They have all started softball and have still been doing gymnastics, which means that our weeknights are full of practice and games and gymnastics. And on top of that Brooklyn decided she wanted to do this 4H thing, so we got her a pig and in the fall she will have to take it to the fair and show it and hope to sell it. Thank goodness for Matt and Shane our friends cuz they have done most of the work.
