Birthday fun

It's been a very busy few weeks here, so much so that I didn't get around to blogging at all last week! Main reason for the craziness?? Our sweet Lila turned FIVE and I feel like a crazy amount of "birthday" ensued. And as if that wasn't enough, we are having her friends birthday party and another family party this coming weekend! Whew! I swear, one party max next year!

This year her birthday was on a Monday, which meant a cupcake party at preschool!  I did this little side by side below of her on her birthday, and her the day she was born. Time sure flies (cue the weeping) ... 

That night she got to choose what she wanted for her birthday dinner and she chose her favorite - Mexican food! 

Later we had a joint family party with my side of the family for her and our nephew! More cupcakes and presents - hooray!

Owen naturally thought it was his birthday too and kept telling everyone he was turning 6! 

This weekend was so rainy and gross here until Memorial Day!!! It was gorgeous so we hit the beach!!

Selfie in the sunshine! I was really trying to get a pic of my "half" top knot ;) 

The kids were thrilled the Popsicle stand was officially open for the season! "Creepy Barbie" for Lila and Batman for Owen! 

Then after naps it was off to see friends for a classic backyard BBQ. I love summery salads like this spinach, strawberry and goat cheese salad. Mmm!

And the kids were in pure heaven because our friends have the Frozen keep! Solid evening of entertainment right there!!

Here's to a short work week!!
