So what’s been happening with us lately? Summer vacation is fast approaching and in fact, we’re counting down to just 6 more days before we welcome Mimi, Brian, and Brianne here again! Because this Mama forgot to check the school calendar before making plans, lucky Bridgette will get to miss the last 2 weeks of school, as we’re headed to Orlando for Disney World and a 4 day Disney Cruise to the Bahamas! I’m pretty sure by the time we return from this trip, we will all be “Disney’d” out for awhile. Nonetheless, anticipation is always the best part and we’re eagerly counting down our days here. 🙂
Some funny conversations between Bridgette and I recently:
Bridgette: Mommy, do you know all the different layers of the rainforest?
Me: No, I don’t.
Bridgette: Can you use your phone to ask someone?
Me: Umm…..okay, but who do you think I should call?
Bridgette: I don’t know, can you ask daddy because he always talks to this girl on his phone when he has problems and she seems to be able to help him.
Me: Oh!? Really? I didn’t know that. Do you happen to know who he talks to?
Bridgette: No, I just know it’s a girl.
Me: Okay, did you catch her name?
Bridgette: (thinks really hard, then face lights up) Yeah!!! It’s Siri!
Bridgette: Mommy, what year were you born? Two thousand and what?
Me: Actually, it’s 1977.
Bridgette: WHAT??? 1977? And you lived all the way until 2014? Wow! You’re ancient!
Bridgette: Thats really amazing mommy. I had no idea you can live that long. I had no idea you are so old either. You really don’t look that old.
Me: Thanks Bridge, I’m glad I don’t look ancient!
Great America is officially open for the season and we of course have gotten our season passes already. I took Bridgette and Elena there during their Spring Break, and the two little daredevils went on some of the adult roller coaster rides!
Our favorite Farmer’s Market in San Carlos is also open again, so Thursday afternoons always include a trip there after gymnastics class. Ice cream at Cowabunga and books at The Reading Bug are always on the agenda when we’re there, along with limitless sampling of the freshest strawberries, peaches, and kettle corn!
Mother’s Day included a sweet invitation to Bridgette’s class for tea and sweets. The kids spent a lot of time preparing for the occasion, with hand written notes, gifts, and little surprises along the way! I loved everything!!
The kids were asked to write three adjectives to describe their moms, and then read it out loud to us in class. Bridgette used the words: caring, cute, and marvelous for me! 🙂
Biking, scootering, walking, and running around our neighborhood is something we love to do daily. Impromptu picnics are happening more frequently as well with this nice weather that we have consistently.
