I will be taking the boys to IA over Spring Break to visit Grandma and Grandpa Dykstra. Marc, however, will not be coming along because he will be too busy working. Yes, praise God… the man has a job!
Next Tuesday is AJ’s Fourth birthday and since we will be in Iowa, we had his birthday party tonight. Just a small little something with a few friends, but I think he enjoyed it.
We started the day with chocolate chip pancakes and he got to watch “Cars” this morning. Then because of the gorgeous weather (I think I heard we had a record high), he spent the rest of the day playing outside with his buddy, Noah.
For his party in the evening some other friends came over, along with the kiddos I babysit, for pizza…. AJ’s all time favorite food. Seriously, the kids asks for pizza for every meal. Then came the piniata.
What a good day for a birthday party. And the best part… he gets to put on the birthday shirt again and celebrate all over again in Iowa on his real birthday next Tuesday.
Last week I was offered an opportunity to head the to our local Civic Theater with some good friends to go see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Oh my goodness… it was just that…. Amazing!
I want to run right out and get the CD and blast the fun music.
I was hesitant to call Andrew’s school early Friday morning to let them know that Marc would be picking Andrew up at 10:45 am instead of the scheduled 11:20 am. I just knew they were going to ask why…
Me, pausing briefly: “For no good reason… they are just going to the fishing show.”
School Office Woman: “That sounds like a perfectly good reason to me.”
