Hope and I Celebrate our Birthdays (and the rest of April)

On the evening of April 27th we all got together for a delicious Mexican feast prepared by my mom to celebrate my birthday on the 26th and Hope's on the 29th. I love that we are birthday buddies! Looking at pictures of all this yummy food sure has me hungry!

And other highlights from the end of April...
Preston has become quite the lego addict and I love it because he can follow the directions himself and finally has something to entertain himself for long periods of time. He makes some pretty cool stuff!

Addie has come up with some pretty creative rainbow loom creations. She was REALLY into hummingbirds for a bit so modified some animals she watched tutorials for and made her own little humming bird.

Preston and I were supposed to go to the gym and do errands one Friday, but we decided to have a lazy morning instead. We have far too few of those and it was nice to take a break and cuddle and "play multiplication" on the ipad instead (which means he asks me the answers to problems and types them in).

On the evening of my actual birthday Mike and I went on a date to our favorite place, the Alamo. (and as you can see, we are AWESOME selfie takers!)

Oliver stopped by in the afternoon on the 28th to meet Eddie.

The girls participated in their talent shows in music class on the 29th and 30th. They each played one of their recital pieces on the piano and were awesome! Our school is so weird about pictures though! On Tuesday I was able to take Ella out in the hall and get a picture of her at the end of the show, but on Wednesday when I asked to do the same with Addie I was told I couldn't. So stupid!

And summer swim season officially began with practice on April 30th!
