Sweet Summer Adventures!!

This past week was certainly a fun and memorable one for our family. It started out with my baby girl, Katie, celebrating her 5th Birthday! She is such a little princess. Katie absolutely loves animals--so of course she chose to have an animal safari themed birthday party. It turned out adorable! And everyone seemed to have a fun time!

The following day, we decided to go on a real "sweet" adventure together as a family. After dinner, we got the kids in their pjs, threw them into the Tonka Truck (nick name for Gary's Pilot) and headed off for Palm Springs to go "road cruising". For those of you who aren't familiar with this term, it is when you go out late at night hunting for snakes on the move. (Yes, to some of you this may seem I am sure many of you have snake phobias, but I assure you that once you understand these creatures, you won't fear them at all!) Let's just say, we all had an amazingly good time and the pictures of the kids are a clear indication of that. Just look at the photo of my son, Eric-once his dad checks to make sure the snake is "safe", he excitedly jumps out of the car and says, "I got it", grabs the snake off the road, and this is what you get....nothing but a night full of "sweet" times and memories.

Then came Friday. The "sweetest" day of the week for me. Gary went to the pet store to get food for our pet snakes and lizards. However, when he arrived home, I found him in the kitchen peering inside a box on the kitchen counter. He said, "come look what I've got!" I peeked inside and there was the most precious, sweet little white dwarf bunny. Gary decided that we should have a new addition to the family and so please welcome with love, Daisy....

The kids can't get enough of her and it is fun to watch them chase her around the yard.

We are only two weeks into our summer vacation, and alls I can say is this one, so far, is turning out to be truly wonderful! So much of what we have done is spontaneous and I think that is what has made it that much more fun and exciting for everyone!
