gone visiting, now back home again.

I have been out of town. Ken had a board meeting in the cities so we all chose to ride along and visit my sister Anna and her family. It was a quick trip, driving down after Ken got off work on Wednesday and then home again after supper on Thursday. The kids had a lot of fun playing together as always. Below is a picture of my two oldest and her two oldest. They are our stair steps with each of them being 11 months apart.

It was my 30 birthday yesterday so everybody celebrated with me. Ken had sneakily brought gifts along for me. (He is the best husband I know of for never forgetting a special occasion and giving me something. I am very blessed!) Anna's family also remembered my birthday.

Mara and Margaret worked together and made a cake for me. It turned out wonderful! Anna helped a little with the frosting. Anna invited some of our friends, Patrick and Corrine (and girls) over for supper. We had a great time visiting together.

Ken took this picture and was quite pleased that he got it just while I was blowing. He did great on the timing but I think I look a little silly. 30 years old!!! I think that seems about middle aged, oh well, I feel pretty much like I just graduated from high school, until I realize that I am a Mom to an 8 year old and 3 other kids.

I have had so many things that I wanted to blog about, but so little time. I am thinking I may do a lot of blogging this evening. Ken took the older 3 to a hockey game and so it is just Megan and I here and it is almost time for her to go to bed (She has been just playing quietly by me, every little bit I have to put together a lego piece for her or help her with her drawing.)

We thought about going to the hockey game too as we usually like to do stuff like that together but Ken had decided to go on the spur of the moment and I was already feeling chilly (and a hockey game isn't warm!), I had planned on working on an estimate for a bridal floral customer (I did that already now), and I didn't feel like making Megan sit still for the 2nd night in a row (for some reason while traveling last night she got tired of being in her seat) and since we had been together most of the day yesterday, I stayed home where now I can blog to my hearts content!!
