Happy Birthday To Me & PBS Kids In The Park

Well it's here. 

My Birthday. 
(Make sure you go enter the giveaway from Monday!  http://goo.gl/ABtoxl)

I'm leaving my 20s and entering my 30s.
I started the day with an extra 30 min of sleep.  I felt like it. 
Then I grabbed a bux.  My favorite.  Black Blonde. 
That sounds dirty. 

Bad segway to a children's event!  It happens!

Saturday we headed downtown which we don't trek to that often and we attended the PBS Kids In The Park at White River State Park sponsored by WFYI.  Aside from the heat it was pretty fun. 

We started with this clown... I signed up for a Gymboree free trial class that I'm sure I'll post about... and while I did that, Ella had some interesting responses to this clown.  It was priceless.  For some reason, she freezes and gets really quiet and avoids eye contact when it comes to people dressed up in costume. 

And I'm loving this "Hmmm...." look like "I could handle this bike!"
Man am I going to have my hands full with this girl!

While attempting to avoid ALL LINES we found a cute little animal show. 
We did join in the middle of it so there was no shade left to sit under. 

We watched until this guy came out... I forget his name.  He only fluffed up when the lady got close to people.  It was actually kind of funny.  Like he knew when to show off.

We got lots of coloring pages!  Every time you waited in line, we got one. 
So actually thinking back we got 3. 
We only waited in lines that seemed "luckily short" and when the character was coming within 10 min. 

Family Photo Op!

This one was first... it was too sunny so we turned around and did the one above.

The family pics were while we were in line to meet Wonder Red! 
I'm not even sure which show she's on!  HAH
Ella gave her a high five.

Then froze...
Like usual.

Dance Break while waiting for Cat in The Hat.

We only waited for him like 15 min total and it was quick and painless...
Minus the scorching sun.

Did you see that she warmed up a bit?!? 
But seriously... you should see the Santa & Easter Bunny photos.

And this dog had no line.  I have no idea who he is.  I just know that it was a dog, she sat on his lap, and there was no line! NO LINE! 
Yes we would love to take our picture with you! 

And that was that.  Will we go next year?  Unsure... but it was free. 
And it was a gorgeous day with my family!

Scenes From My Weekend & A Birthday Giveaway!

This was a very full and very HOT weekend. 

It's like every summer I forget how HOT it gets!  I'm not complaining complaining because it was really COLD this winter... Like so COLD and when it was the COLDEST, our heat went out and it took 3 days to fix it because of the wait lists from all the other peoples heat going out too!  So I will not complain about how HOT it is... I just can't. 

But.. that being said, we were outside all day on Saturday.  It was HOT.  Like so hot that I now have a racer back tan line down the middle of my back. 

Here's my weekend in pictures...
And a Birthday Giveaway at the very very end!  :)  Enjoy! 

Finished Ella's Big Girl Room -- For Real -- on Thursday.
And I'm very happy with how it turned out!
I'll probably be posting it next week on the blog!

PBS Kids in the Park.
95 degrees or something like that.
Long long lines.
Hot Toddler.
Made the best of it!

Figured we were within walking distance and would stop by since we were down there.
Still around 100 degrees out.
Got snubbed by the teens doing face paint.

Had some Coffee...
Got my hair done...
Hung out by the pool...
Got my face painted....by toddler.

And because I'm hitting the big 30 on Wednesday, I thought I'd throw in a HOT giveaway! 
Up for Grabs is a FREE ENGRAVABLE NECKLACE from Little Miss Martha!!!
It's something New from Stella & Dot... I love them... They are Summer Proof IE Water & Sunscreen proof... and you need one!  So here's your chance to get one!
And it's my first time using Rafflecopter, so please let me know if there are issues!!!


Father's Day Recap

Did you guys celebrate Father's Day with the Daddies in your life? 

Our Daddy was out of town, but we surprised him with some gifts when he came home Monday morning! 

Let me start by saying that Mike was in Vegas.  I think that's enough of a gift, but then I felt bad.  Not that I really should because I NEVER get presents!  Not bitter, but I put a lot of time and effort into the gifts I give usually and sometimes it would be nice to get that in return.  Just sayin... anyways, I digress.

So Ells and I were home by ourselves for the 4th day in a row and while I swore we were not going out on Sunday, I had to because I felt bad.  So we went over to Meijer to look for a card and frames.  I had some pictures taken of Ella & I when it was still snowy and I decided to frame those for Mike.  And I realized that we were still in need of a new drill since I threw ours away... somehow... so I looked at those too..

Then we ran into TJ Maxx to grab some frames for the pictures since Meijer didn't have anything.

And here's what Mike came home to...

No Judging of the bag.  I noted on the outside envelope of the card that I was not pregnant, just lacking a bag and this was leftover from one of Ella's baby showers!

And of course this card sings... 

And dances... 

And we had these GORGEOUS pictures taken by our friend Amy on one of the coldest days of the year, but I am in love with them!  
And my baby's big brown eyes...

And one of the both of us for Daddy. 

Lucky guy...
I am a good wife. 

Hope you all had a great Father's Day!
