Where do I start?

Since the last post, a lot has happened. I am so behind, that I don't even know where to start! I think it would be best to break it up into more than one post.

(And let me warn you that I'm posting with Madeline sitting in my lap trying to take over the computer, so this will be brief!)

I suppose the most significant event that has occurred is that we celebrated Braden's 5th birthday! We invited our friends and family to play with Braden at Pump It Up and had a great time.The kids - okay, the kids AND the adults - did lots of sliding and bouncing...There was even a rock wall!After play time we enjoyed pizza and cake. (Braden chose a Spiderman and Friends-themed cake.)We were so excited to have Nana and Pickle and Taylor and Marileigh in from Tennessee for the weekend! Thank you to everyone who was able to celebrate with us! Also, Roger took Braden to the Cubs/Pirates series at Wrigley the weekend before his party. It was the first Cubs experience for both of them, and they plan to have many more.
For the Saturday game, Roger's office got a box, so they cheered in luxury. The next day, they had just as much fun cheering from the stands
I'll have to tell Roger to edit this post if he has anything he wants to add about the games. Since I wasn't there, I don't have all the details, but I know Braden loved the Cracker Jacks and the bag of Cubs goodies he came home with!

Next up will probably be my trip to the beach with the girls! Stay tuned...
