A Couple of Birthdays and an Iris Garden

Macie and Julia celebrated their birthdays together because they have them so close to each other. Macie is the 27th of April and Julia is the 8th of May so we decided to have a birthday brunch on May 2nd to celebrate. What a fun way to celebrate. Everyone that came were able to still have most of the day to do their thing and accomplish Saturday work. Julia was absolutely thrilled as was Macie, of course she recieved most of her gifts on her actual b-day, but happy none the less. We ate and then had gifts. Macie recieved an MP3 player from Grandma and Pa, and a knifty knitting kit from Auntie and Uncle. She went right to work and made a couple of hats before Sunday. Julia go a new talking dollie from her beloved Hunkins crew and a lite bright from Grandma and Pa. We gave her a new bigger bike.

Today (May 9, 2009) Grandma and Pa picked me up to go to an Iris Farm/Garden near us in Loomis. It is a beautiful farm with lots of flowers in bloom everywhere. You can go and wander the gardens and sit among the flowers and just be. Grandma got here and suggested we take Julia May with us. She was delighted and quickly went in the house and changed clothes. Nobody else really wanted to go because they were too busy exploring under the house. We have had a bathroom crisis. For Mother's Day I decided I wanted to update the shower/tub fixtures. Tom started with what appeared to be a very easy project. Let's just say we now need someone to come here and fix a pipe that has been busted. No showers or baths here in the kids bathroom for a while. So Julia was really the only one jazzed to go with me. It was beautiful and I got to escape the chaos of the bad plumbing at the Hay House.

Tom's projects sound like they go about like Duane's projects - maybe that is why we never get anything done!!! Kari

Just thought I'd see what your up to. I hope my kids will decide to swim like your kids have.:)
