I had a great birthday - Parker made it extra special :) Here's a quick peek at the conversation we had on Wednesday night:

A: Parker, do you know what tomorrow is?
P: It's a school day, mama.
A: Yes, and it's also Mama's Happy Birthday!
P: No kidding...can you beyieve it?
A: Won't it be so special.
P: You are going to have a pink pwesent.
A: Really? What will be in my pink present?
P: We have to wait and see!
A: Ok. Is it pink?
P: Your pwesent is a pink monsto truck!
A: WOW - cool. How are you going to get that for mama?
P: Im gonna drive all by myself in da car to Tawget and get your pink monsto truck, mama.
A: I can't wait!
P: And then you can blow your candles.
A: Yes, will you help me?
P: Yep. We gotta wait though. And sing you Happy Birfday first.


So cute! We ate outside at Quizno's last night for supper, and then just went home to play in the driveway. No cake or cupcakes - maybe this weekend. We did have chocolate chip cookies though. Yummy. Parker sang me "Happy Birthday" last night before he went to bed. I had tears in my eyes :) He is the best present to me!!!

I have some photos from last weekend as well - when Aunie was at our house to visit! It was so windy they didn't even have to blow to get bubbles :)

Baseball Boy

We took in a softball game the other night. Parker *loves* watching. And looks forward to the time he can spend ON the field after the games are done to play ball. He's quite the hitter already. We have started playing when we are at home now, and he runs around the bases and everything. What a riot to watch! No sliding yet...thank goodness. I'm not ready for those grass stains quite yet. I know that they will be appearing on his knees soon though.

It's official - Kels & Graham have the date set for the wedding next June at Ruttgers. Stay tuned for more details :)

Parker and I will have the honor of being in their wedding party - yay! I will be standing with tears and tissues right next to my sister on the big day as her Maid of Honor. *SO* excited! And little Parker will be dressed in his tuxedo and have the big job of ring bearer. He talks about the wedding:
P: Where is married, mama?
M: Well, Parker...auntie Kels and Graham are GETTING married
P: Oh.
M: We get to go and have fun at a BIG party for Graham & Kels...
P: And Bodde too?
M: Sorry, buddy. Bodde has to stay home.
He's ALWAYS got that dog's best interest at hand. Love that the 2 of them are {connected} in a special way.

We are ~beyond excited~ that we get to be part of the Ruppel wedding!!!!!
